MAKER UPDATE #37-#38 | MY FIRST PAIR OF SOCKS

Welcome back to another maker update! Work life has been busy again, so I skipped a week, but I promise you I’ve used my time wisely. 😉 We can now welcome a new addition to the shop: the TEXTURIZADO scarf in ENERO mint green (finally)! I wrote a blogpost about the design here. In other news, my bare yarn shipment arrived and I’ve dyed up and sent out all Weekender sweater KAL yarn kits. I’m beyond excited to see some of you knit up their Weekenders in my yarn. Crazy! And finally, I’ve got a finished object…

TEXTURIZADO SCARF

Fall, I’m ready for ya! Another knitwear design of my own just reached a stage of perfection. And it’s one that’s perfect for layering on top of your Summer wardrobe. I’m talking about my TEXTURIZADO scarf. Admittedly, you can hardly call this a design, since it’s just all-over seed stitch, but it still took me some swatching, knitting, and reknitting to get some of its details just right. And now I’ve finally launched it in my own SUAVE worsted merino wool. So it’s about time I dedicate a blogpost to it.

MAKER UPDATE #36 | COULDN’T RESIST CASTING ON ANOTHER TEJEDA

Since I’m actually writing this update a week after the previous one (like I should be), this is gonna be a relatively short blog post (like it should be). Not so much has changed since I last updated. I did dye and ship out all the Weekender KAL yarn kits I had stock for, organized my yarn stash, and casted on my own TEJEDA sweater test knit, but I haven’t listed that TEXTURIZADO scarf in the shop yet, and I also haven’t finished one of my current projects. So, let’s dive right into WIPs!

MAKER UPDATE #33-#35 | DOING WHAT I WANNA BE DOING

Yes, I’m so happy to be back with another Maker Update! I’ve worked hard on the plans I mentioned in my previous update: I listed the first TEJEDA sweater for sale and started the second one, finished that mint green TEXTURIZADO scarf en announced the Weekender sweater KAL I’m co-hosting with Lindsay (@bundlehandmade). I feel pretty productive lately and it looks like it’s paying off as well!
