Merry Christmas to All

I had a few spare minutes today, so I decided I would share this pattern with you as a Christmas bonus.

WTB – ski sweater pattern

This pattern has instructions and full charts.  It uses both Intarsia and Fair Isle techniques.  It can be easily shortened or lengthened by adjusting the main color areas.

If you need special help with sizing, feel free to contact me and I will help you.

* If you notice that the Whitetail buck in the sample above doesn’t look quite like the one in your pattern, it is because I have been paying close attention to the coloring of the Whitetails that visit us everyday, thus the changes.

You will also notice that this is a pic of the basic knit, and I have knitted my bushes in red only.  I do this because I it reduces the floats and allows me to put in the additional Fall colors later as overlay stitches (whole and half ones).

Right now, I am working on a 14 inch pillow version of this motiff, and will upload it when I am finished.

Happy knitting and Happy New Year

I just made an executive decision today to close my Etsy Shop.  Why?  I just want to knit, and play my harp and simplify my life.  Worrying about if my customers got their pattern or not, or whether they are happy with them or not, is something I don’t need to have on my head right now.

So…… I have decide to offer you my patterns free.  That way I am under no pressure to produce.  To those of you who have invested monies in my work, I thank you.  It has provided me with more yarn to create with.  For those of you who have marked some of my patterns as your favorites but have hesitated to buy, now is your chance to give them a try.  The bottom line for me is that I want it be fun, and besides- it’s Christmas.

Check out the Pattern Catalogue Page.  I will be adding more as the days go on.  So check back often.

Merry Christmas – KT

This will probable be my final post for a while, because my hours will be filled with making cinnamon rolls, and more cinnamon rolls(check out my post  “Merry Christmas to All”  the recipe is there.   That said, I want to wish all my followers and their families a blessed Christmas.

This time of year for me, at least, is not about shopping, presents and all the hooplah.  It is a reminder of the promise God has made to all believers in John chapter 14.   HE is coming to take us unto himself, that where HE is we will be also.  So it is not just about a baby in a manger, it is also about the promised glory that he prepared for us before the foundations of the world.

To that end, I designed a 16 inch pillow top to express my hope for the future.  I have entitled this work , “The Call.”  It is my version of that moment when the trumpet will sound and King Jesus will call us  home to be with him.
