Happy new year & a new design!

Happy new year!!

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season.. now that craziness is over, what better way to begin the new year than sharing a new design with you!

The new Spring 2013 issue of Interweave Knitscene preview is up now and in it, you’ll find my new design, Lost Garden tee.

Lost Garden Tee

Made with Knit Picks Comfy yarn, the change of gauge does the shaping for you so that even the very beginner knitter can make this sweater! Check it out when the magazine comes out on Jan 22. The Ravelry page is already up!

A couple of years ago, a friend and a member of our Korean knitting group went back to Seoul. Because she didn’t want to bring too much stuff back to Korea, she gave away most of her stash and her beautifully made clothing (she’s a fashion designer). And, she gave me this small ball of lace yarn saying that she salvaged it from her old project and didn’t know what to do with it.. She said, “I don’t know what you can do with it, but if you want it, take it!” and i said YAH!

I never say no to free yarn. Or free fabric. :P

Tada~

I made this cute little bone thing for Candy.

And look how much she loves it!

:) It’s a perfect size for her small mouth. So cute.

This is why I never say no to free yarn. :)
