Accomplishments of the Week - June 10, 2018

Accomplishment #1

This past week has been a tough one: teething baby, husband with a week-long migraine, preparing to move house in 3 weeks... so my first accomplishment has been to sort our cd collection and actually start packing a few boxes. Still a long way to go, but it feels good to have gotten started.

Accomplishment #2

The thing that's kept me going through the stressful week has been my knitting. I'm working on a new sock pattern using Pizzicato in the Palestra colourway to be released next month. It's very simple, so a good project for me right now when I'm only able to knit a few minutes here and there.

My son really loves the colour and has asked for a pair of socks for himself if there's any yarn leftover. I'm not sure I'll have enough for a full pair of socks, but I do have some grey Cobblestone left from another project, so between the two I should be able to make a pair of boy's socks.

P.S.Check out my new J Hendry project bag I picked up at Fibrefest. Kittens and yarn, so cute!

I hope you move goes well and I hope Paul feels better soon, migraines are hell. I can’t wait for the sock patter to come out, I love it.

I really love baking bread at home, and I actually rarely buy any bread products except bagels (and croissants when I'm feeling indulgent). But with the crazy heat we had all summer I got out of the habit of baking, and until last week I hadn't made bread since last spring. I like using the method from the Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day cookbook. In reality it does take a few more than five minutes, but once you've got a routine going and have the dough stored in your fridge it really is pretty easy to whip up a fresh loaf whenever you feel like it.

I've spent the past week sketching and swatching many, many cable patterns for a new design I'm working on. I love this part of the design process and usually have way more ideas than I can fit in one project, so I often end up with tons of swatches.

Patterns for Presto!
Patterns for Presto!

Our bulky-weight Presto yarn is a great choice for a quick and gratifying fall project, and we're really excited to announce the publication of four new patterns using this yarn.

We sent a skein of Presto each to three different indie designers at the beginning of the summer, and they've all come up with great ways to use this soft and squishy yarn. In fact, we were so inspired by their patterns that Elizabeth decided to add a design of her own to the collection!
