A Little Preview

I'll be working on these pads this week, the cores are sewn in and now I'll move along to the fleece cutting.  I'm just waiting on a snap order to arrive.  I'll be changing the ribbon indicating absorbency to a fun little snap that will indicate the absorbency.  

I hope the snaps arrive soon so I can include this batch.  If not though I'll go ahead and use the ribbons on these pads too, I want to get them listed by Friday.  Several of these prints (the trees, and leaves and candy cane stripes) are end of the line prints. 

I have four new fabrics to add to my facebook gallery too!

Yarn Along ~ Portside

I cast on Portside earlier this week, it's just what I need right now.  Round and round knitting with increases every other row.  The cast on was a little different than I expected being an adult sweater (rather than a child's, which I'm more accustomed to knitting).   It will make for a nicer fit and more efficient yarn usage.  I'll get a lot of use from a this tunic.  It would be very easy to adapt the pattern for a cardigan stye too.  Since things need to be easy I'm reading Letters from WIngfield Farm, it's light and entertaining.  The author, Dan Needles used to write a column for Harrowsmith magazine, which has sadly ceased publication.
