Organic Seasons Blanket & Jacket Pattern Release!

Organic Seasons Jacket PDF $5.00 -
Organic Seasons Blanket PDF $5.00 -
From Knit Picks Blanket & Jacket.

This is happening a little earlier than expected, due to family events. Testing went swimmingly and I met some very wonderful people through the process. Thank you, dear testers; I could not make this possible without YOU!

I present The Organic Seasons Blanket & Jacket Patterns.

The Jacket is knit seamlessly & flat from the bottom up.  The borders can be worked in duplicate stitching or intarsia.  There is a border motif option for each season. 


The body, sleeves & hood are worked in a soft wave pattern that is representative of years, the ocean, the wind.  Similar to the rungs on a tree. 


The front has a asymmetrical opening and the buttons bands are worked by picking up stitches.  Buttons or toggles will work beautifully.


The Jacket features a generous fit to be worn over clothing and to last more than one season.
Sizes available are 3 months to 10 years.


Knit Picks Swish Tonal Worsted was used for both the Jacket & the Blanket.  It is a superwash wool that is soft and luxurious. 


The Blanket is worked seamlessly, from the center out, in the wave pattern.  You have a choice of seasonal border motifs, which match the jacket.  Sizes are Lovie (23" x 23"), Stroller (34" x 34") & Crib (45" x 45").


One season can be worked across all four sides or a season per side.  The choice is yours.  The Blanket pattern features charts as well as written directions for the wave pattern.


Both patterns will be available through Knit Picks within the next few weeks, or you can purchase them now through the blog or Ravelry.  Both patterns are in imperial and metric measurements.

He listened!!

This is a miracle; my almost 2 year old son LISTENED to me to sit so I could photograph him for my upcoming patterns.  I even had a lollipop ready, but he saw the basket of apples and THAT is what he wanted.  Yay for no sugar and a healthy snack!


...and, I got my photos!


He didn't want to stand, only sit like a little angel.  But, I needed him to stand for me......he obliged!


So, all it takes is a basket of apples.  My new secret weapon :)

October.

Has it really been almost a month since I last posted? Really??


October has been a very busy, yet relaxing month for our family.
We went camping in Gravenhurst for Feast of Tabernacles.  We did come home early as it was terribly cold and wet. 
 

I love amping when the parks are virtually empty!  It is us and retired couples :)


India knit this adorable scarf for Loxley.  It is a simple pattern and stripes! I love stripes.  He hated the scarf, until we told him he could go for a walk.  When we got home, he didn't want to take it off.  So typical!


Do you like his hat?  This will be available soon :)  It sizes right up to men's.


Dee took some good photos of my Organic Seasons Jacket & Blanket.  I am in the process of finalizing the pattern layout.  This is tentatively going to be released the first week of November :) I am super excited!



Oh! And, one more thing I am working on; children's sizes 3-14 years in my Union Suit pattern. Those sizes are in testing now!  The adult sizes are coming; I am working on those :)  Just in time for winter!


Happy Knitting!
