Silly me, I finished both of those hats for my grandmother but didn’t take any photos of them! I think she liked them, though – and she admitted that she lost the last hat I made her (probably 5+ years ago).

happy birthday grandma!

I got new business cards! It’s been ages since I ordered some. I think they would be nice if they were shiny, but I decided on recycled paper instead. Pretty minimal.

New sweater release soon, featuring this pretty button from the Vexed Muddler.

Getting to use a pretty button from 'the vexed muddler' on etsy! #knitdesign

The sweater I’ve been knitting has had a few bumps though. It was all going along swimmingly, then I realized partway into the yoke that my math was totally wrong. Sigh!

I had to rip pretty far back! Partway through the yoke for the second time I had to rip again, but not as far. Don’t become a designer if you aren’t willing to rip stuff out repeatedly.

But I actually finished the sweater last night and wove in the ends this morning! I’m really excited to wear this one. Pattern is my own, and will be released next month (I hope). I also took a bunch of photos while I was grafting the underarms, so I’ll have a tutorial soon on how to close up those pesky underarm gaps in a raglan!

Reading:
The Shell Collector by Hugh Howey. Interesting premise, fun quick read, but a little unsatisfying in the end.
I also just finished Sapphique by Catherine Fisher, which is the sequel to Incarceron. Again, an enjoyable read but not super amazing.
