Busy Bee

So it’s almost Fall. The summer went by so fast… I tried to divide my time bewteen family and work but I’m still really bad at finding a perfect balance between both. Apart from spending some quality time with my hubby and kids I was working like crazy on a really cool release scheduled in the next few weeks. I must say I’m pretty excited about this one and I can’t wait to share more about it with you…

In the meatime the publication is becoming more and more real to me, with test knits soon to be finished, final edits of the instructions and, of course, the photoshoot.

Apart from that I’m also in working on a few sweet collaborations with really fantastic yarnies – Mel and Julie. The first design is for Mel from Mellifera Yarn and it is actually ready and just waiting for the test knit to begin. It’s a very simple cardigan that I was completely lacking in my closet (actually you can see it in the pic :-). I made it in Mellifera Yarn Cash DK – so soft and lovely to wear! This gray shade is called Smoke and it’s really subtle and pretty. Just perfect :-)

The second sweater I’m making is also gray :-) It was not intentional, though. The design for Julie Asselin is worked in fabulous Leizu Worsted in coloroway called Birch. Oh my! That yarn looks so awesome! It has a really great stitch definition and a gorgeous sheen (that must be the silk content). I think it’s not available yet but do try it when Julie puts it in the store!

So seems like the next few weeks are going to be pretty exciting.

I hope :-)
