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…
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.
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!
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!
If you’re getting sick of seeing these photos and hearing me ramble on about my latest design, I’m sorry. It’s just that I’m really, really excited about it! The TEJEDA sweater is my first ever garment design that I’m truly happy with — many earlier garments got frogged relentlessly — so I guess it’s worth celebrating. (Not that I need anything to celebrate to drink wine on a beach.) Anyway, today I share some bits and pieces about how this design came to be.
For those of you who aren’t subscribed to my newsletter (seriously, where have you been, get yourself over here)(haha, just kidding), or for those of you who missed the memo on Instagram, I’m writing this post today to collect all the info about the #TheWeekenderSweaterKAL that Lindsay (@bundlehandmade) and I are co-hosting! Because yes, Fall is upon us! Not that I need an excuse to knit a gorgeous sweater like Andrea Mowry’s The Weekender… If you feel the same, read on.
