I also worked on the collection of knitting patterns called "The Vandalia Collection." They're all available online on Ravelry or on the blog page here. Making a foray (is that a word?) into long-format desktop publishing, I am combining all of the patterns into one book. It's 36 pages long and I've ordered one copy. (I know - one copy? Crazy!) I want to see what it's like before I think about ordering more. If anything, it's a good experiment to see how I like to see my name in print.
Speaking of "in print", watch for a special announcement on Friday this week. (Rodeo Knits may have been seen speaking with a certain newspaper reporter.)
What are you knitting? I've got another Brawley on the needles with a new yarn from Quince & Co. called Owl. I like the yarn a bunch. It's soft and easy to knit; the colors are muted but current. Big fan.
I'm also using square needles from Kollage. They're - uh - needles. At this size, US 9, they're a little odd. I feel like the squared off edges are like speed bumps. I've used smaller needles, US 4, and they were a lot easier to use. I think I'll probably stick with my regular round needles. Next, I want to try Karbonz by Knitters Pride.
