Teddy the Picnic Bear!

Hello friends!

I'm excited to share a new design and announce a new KAL for the month of August. Meet Teddy the Picnic Bear!

Teddy was designed exclusively for the Spartickes Dyes Holiday Club for the month of July. He will now be available to the public for purchase on August 1! Please join us in the lemknitcrochet designs group for an August KAL of Teddy.

I can't wait to see your Teddy and look forward to knitting a few more myself :) I'll be back soon with a blog update on my first trip to Disney World!

Heisenberg Cowl

Happy summer! It's heating up in Texas so I spent the week inside, binge watching Netflix and knitting. I am officially hooked on Breaking Bad, and am already on the final season! It was so addicting to watch that I decided to start my own Breaking Bad knitting project when I spotted this glorious yarn in an update...

White Birch Fiber Arts - "Call Me Heisenberg" colorway
The second it arrived, I caked it up and Cast-On a Monster Cowl by Julia Allen. I was excited to discover that the pattern was perfect for TV knitting because it was SO easy to memorize!

Day 4 Progress

I churned this sucker out in 6 days, and couldn't be any more pleased with it. The yarn is from White Birch Fiber Arts and is on a DK base. I am officially addicted to gradient stripes, they are so much fun to knit!

Heisenberg Cowl
That's about all from me this week, one more week until the big pattern reveal for the Spartickes Dyes Holiday Club! Can't wait for everyone to see :) I'll leave you now with a picture of my favorite model :)

Have a great week!!
