- I finished up the sample shawl for my #1 deadline project. That's been TE'ed and my tester is on the last section, so it will be ready to forward on to the yarn company shortly. Woot!
- I am still working on my DK-weight lace and cable sweater sample in the meantime - that doesn't have a specific deadline, but I'm picking it up as I have time right now.
- I have another short deadline project that was accepted, but I'm currently waiting on yarn for that. When it arrives, that'll bump to the top of the to-do list for a bit.
- I have committed to going to Stitches West in February, so I've been brainstorming some kits and 2-skein-size patterns to take for that. I have been really enjoying my new DK-weight superwash merino yarn, so I decided to start a 2-color, slip-stitch cowl with that, using 1 skein of a handpaint and 1 skein of a tonal dye. It's knitting up fast! (Here's a little sneak peek....)
