I finished my second Postcard Cardigan with Anzula Squishy yarn. I am hoping to do a photo shoot tomorrow. I have just the place in mind and I have enlisted the help of my wonderful husband to take the pictures of me wearing it (well both of them separately). Hopefully it will all work out and I'll share finished pictures tomorrow. Then I have to review the pattern 600 times and try to muster up the courage to publish it. I am going to be releasing it in one size. To start.... then possibly I'll add more sizes in the future.
I had a little pep talk with myself. I tried to decide what path I should take with my knitting and designing. I really love designing and it is all I think about. I decided I will finish up a few projects I already have on my needles and then I'll focus on my next patterns to publish. I told myself that I won't join any more KALs or do any custom orders.
That lasted for about one hour. Then I saw Romi is having another MKAL. I did her Mystery Knit Along last year and I loved the group and I really love her patterns. I loved getting one clue a week for five weeks. I really looked forward to my new clues each Friday morning. So without hesitation I bought the pattern and rushed up to Chelsea Yarns and bought this fantastic Manos Fino in colorways Ivory Letter Opener and Antique Lace. I wore the two skeins around my neck in the store to make sure I could live with the two colors and of course I love them. So do my little birds :)
Plus I love the story behind the Manos del Uruguay story:
