First– anyone want to give the new blanket pattern a whirl? I’ve made it a few times with various weights of yarn (worsted, thread, and I’m almost done with sport weight), but would love to see someone else’s take on it. It’s very much in second-draft-phase, but I’ll definitely send you the final version when it’s done. I’m really only looking for typos and inconsistencies in the directions. Email me (lisa at goodknits.com), if you’re interested! I’ll get back to you this evening or tomorrow. Thank you for the emails! I have enough testers. :)
Second– I’m thinking ahead to my summer vacation project. I have been wanting to make my youngest a cardigan for a long time. I bought the perfect cardi for him, last year, so I didn’t get that urge to make one. I don’t think it will fit that well, this autumn, so I spent some time pattern-searching, the other night. I’m really intrigued by the Lopapeysa style patterns, so when I came upon this free one, I knew it was The One. I’m going to use a lighter weight yarn (Houston autumns are just slightly-less-hot summers). Aren’t these colors beautiful?
