The fresco vest wasn’t the only design for Classic Elite this fall – I also designed a little jacket (which was knit by the incomparable Wannietta) for one of CEY’s new booklets, ‘Autumn, Book 1′. It’s quite straight forward, but I tried to eliminate pocket seams as much as possible so it might read as a-stand-on-your-head-while-whistling-dixie kind of pattern, but it’s not: you just have to knit the pocket lining before starting the front so as to be able to fold it to the inside later. It just sounds complicated.
Those of you on Ravelry can find it here (is anybody not on Ravelry anymore?). Others will find close ups in my flicker photostream.

Oh, and by the way: we might spend a few hours in Boston shortly: what would you recommend we do?

Having been such a delinquant blogger, I completely neglected to mention that my Knitty scarf, Lace Ribbon Scarf, has been translated into german and spanish:




There may be a french version on the way; I *was* going to translate it, but someone asked if she could. And since my todo list is long enough, well, I’ll let you know when it’s live.

My work conflicts with having a blog – what inspires to write is what I’m working on at the moment, which is precisely what I can’t write about. The most I can divulge is a tiny little glimpse.

One project that has been glimpsed before is the Fresco vest for classic elite – you may remember back in April when I was steeking it – which I *think* may end up being on the back cover of a mag. I sure hope so, as I have never made the cover and the running joke in this household is that I’m lucky to have made the cover of my own book!

There’s more, but I’ll save it for another day. I’m just getting over a terrible cold. Also, I’m afraid I have sad news: my beloved cat has taken ill. I won’t go into details, but there is little that can be done apart from just babying her. She’ll probably be with us for another year or so, but knowing that she won’t be with us beyond that is heart breaking.
