No more fake spring!
REAL spring is here!
Somehow several weeks in April just... "got away from me" is the right phrase, I suppose. Thinking about this time, I wonder what I was doing. I remember feeling very busy and generally not great, but don't recall what I accomplished. Even attempting to create a mental "bullet list" is difficult, probably due to the not feeling great mentioned above.
So, as an aid to my recall, I'll be posting small updates this week of things that I have done/have happened to me over the past few weeks. Here's one: I got a new pattern published in the most recent issue of Yarn Forward, or, rather, Knit, The Magazine Formerly Known As Yarn Forward (or just "The Magazine" for short, perhaps), which does not appear to have a website yet.
It's an elusive publication.
Here's a photo of a little guy wearing it (he looks like he's ready to cry or has just stopped crying):
I called it the Albers Baby because I did some intarsia on the back. I've been thinking about new ways to create geometry and play with color, and a small project seemed like the right place to use some intarsia. It's VERY easy intarsia because it's all straight lines. I was able to knit most of this on various Greyhound buses.
It's all garter stitch and it's knit in one piece. Cool, right? The sizes are 6 months to 24 months. If you can't find a Knit magazine, the pattern will be available as an individual download from my website and Ravelry with additional sizes (I'm thinking up to age 4) in a few months.
What else have I done? Updates to come.
