My Two Secret Projects

Hello blog readers. As you might have noticed, I've stepped back from my knitting over the past few months and  because of this, my poor little knitting blog has been lacking in content. 
I want to assure you that there have been good reasons for this.

I have been working on a collection of knits that I am hoping to release at the end of the year. For the first time I am designing some women's sweaters which I'm finding to be a fun and challenging endeavor. I love knitting sweaters so much, I think it is time that I crossed over into this new venture. 

You can see that I am using hand dyed yarns heavily in this collection. 
I am enjoying working with such inspiring colors.

One of the sweaters is almost done, but the other projects are still in a swatching stage. I wanted to be done with this by now and have so much more to show you, but there has been this other "project" of mine that has been taking up ALL of my energy.

This little boy who will be joining our family in November!!!!

I cannot quite tell you how happy I am to share this with you. We have been wanting to expand our family for some time now and we are absolutely thrilled to be having a second child.

The last three months have been spent in my bed with my saltine crackers, but it is so worth it!
I'm feeling so much better now and I hope to get back to my regular knitting schedule and get this collection done! I have a lot of work to do but I am really excited!

So.. there will be a lot of fun new projects for me to share on the blog over the next several months. 
I'm very excited about these knits and I hope you will love them too!
