Dianne and I have a little bit of Christmas in July going on. She's doing a new Aran Christmas stocking and I finished a new Fair Isle stocking and am working on one with holly appliques and multiples of stitch patterns.
Just finished a top down cardigan for my grandaughter's birthday on Sat. Liked it so much that I'm going to do another one and make a pattern out of it.
Doing our One Skein Malabrigo baby sweater for a shower on Sat. It works up quickly and we do love that Malabrigo yarn.
Brought in to Miss Chickpea's a new pattern called the Anne vest. It sold out the first day. We were excited.

Christmas Stockings

Kathy has been working on a series of new Christmas stocking patterns that inspired me to get busy and work on a new Aran stocking that I've been meaning to do for some time. Sometimes it's amazing how everything comes together - I started on Wednesday and it's almost finished not quite a week later. It turned out to be a good travel project back and forth to St. Louis
I always marvel how knitting allows you to take some yarn and needles and create something brand new.

Kathy and Dianne are blogging!!!
Don't know if anyone will care.
We are putting our patterns on Ravelry. Think it'll be cool.
We have 4 new patterns that we are ready to bring into Miss Chickpea's.
Kathy is doing a whole new line of Christmas stockings and having fun.
Dianne is working on a sweater to duplicate a ready made sweater that Kim Wells, a good customer brought in. Pleased with the results so far.
Talk soon.
