I am not sure what happened this week. I apologize for the lack of blog posts. I think I must have used all my spare time to knit. Another project flew off my needles this week. Of course, in all fairness knitting for babies is quick and rewarding. I managed to start and finish the second pair of monster longies. A few of you asked me about the pattern. I did not make up the pattern. I probably could, since I have knit my fair share of shorties and longies during our days of cloth diapers. Instead I used the grumpybum pattern, which is available for free. I think they turned out well. I hope the recipient is pleased and her twins don't roast in them!
A few weeks ago, I stumbled upon a thread on Ravelry about the Jane Eyre movie and a shawl featured in a few scenes. Although I have not seen the movie or read the book recently, I was drawn into the conversation. I ended up following the thread and eventually volunteering to test knit a new pattern. The designer requested a technical edit for the fastest turnaround. I found a few additions to the pattern, and was rewarded with the pattern for free. I was eager to start, but wanted to finish my sweater and the pair of longies first. Now that my queue is clear, I am casting on for this shawl. I will start reading Jane Eyre to go along with my knitting as soon as I finish Coop.
