I cannot believe it’s October already!!! I haven’t moved house yet, so a lot of my knitting stuff is packed in boxes which means I am limited as far as new projects are concerned but, do not worry, September was still a very busy month.
A Cute Baby Blanket
The awesome Lindsay from Em & Sprout has asked me to make an animal squares blanket for her little baby girl who is due at the end of October. I’m so honoured as Lindsay is one of the crafters I admire the most. I actually had originally designed 30 animal squares as part of Lindsay’s #animaldoodleaday challenge – my biggest knitting achievement to date! You can read all about it here. I am currently re-working my designs (forever a perfectionist) but also creating new squares of some of my favourite animals. This is probably going to take me a while, but I’ll keep you posted :)
Now the question is: which animals will be on Lindsay’s baby blanket? Follow me on Instagram to find out!
My First Print Magazine Publication
September 2014 also marked the first time I ever got one of my projects published in print, eeeeeek! I still can’t believe how lucky I am to have one of my projects featured in Mollie Makes, and of course I wrote a whole post about this (because who wouldn’t!)! And there’s more to come!!!
My best friend Victoria and I have wanted to collaborate on a collection for like ever. Victoria is the girl behind Rock’n’Kitsch jewelry brand Die Young Stay Pretty. For months we’ve been talking about themes and ways to combine our 2 worlds and I am pleased to say it is finally happening! I’ve started working on my side of the collaboration, ie incorporating my knits into her beautiful pieces (it’s not as easy as it sounds, but I’m getting there). Our retro horror movie collection DYSPxJATK will (hopefully) launch soon. Here is a sneak peek – I’d love to know what you think!
