|Just before the toe was finished|
I know, I posted these pictures before, but I have knit quite a bit more, of the Compass Cardigans.
In my dreams I saw a Hoodie Bear in Worsted Weight, sizes 2 - 12, the original was in DK size Preemie to 18 months. Darn it, I got hooked again. The pattern is done, the numbers checked, and I just finished the size 2 and size 4 samples. I still have to knit a collared version and then it will be photographed and posted as well.
Of course there is Cabin Fever's Baby Book. That is awesome. I always learn so much from Deb when we work together on a project. Deb has so kindly included me as an Author. I have to admit that she has written most of the text and patterns, I followed along and made a few changes and helped with the final versions. Some of my ideas where taken, Some not, no problem, it was fun and boy did I learn a lot about publishing.
My passion is spreadsheets. I created a spreadsheet for each of the sizes in each of the gauges (36 pages of spreadsheets in all). That gave me the opportunity to check the patterns, charts, and pattern repeats over and over again. It really is not hard to make that many, you just have to cut and paste a lot, then adjust the gauge numbers and the beginning numbers. They work great when you are working through the patterns - neck, yoke, sleeves, body - those numbers are available at every row of the process. I cannot wait to see the printed book, I think it will go to press by mid June. Deb and Lynda have plenty of work left to do with the editing, layouts and photo selections.
