First things first, thank you to everyone who entered the giveaway for an autographed copy of Remembering the Way by Greta Beekhuis. The winner is emcknits, who has been contacted via email.
Next up . . . something new from Annie’s Craft Store. You may know of Annie’s site — they are not only knitting -related, but have lots of other crafts represented. I have given away booklets of knitting patterns from annie’s a number of times in the page. They are now introducing Annie’s Signature Designs, and the Autumn Bliss 2016 Collection, for both knitting and crochet. There are extensive lookbooks for knitting and crochet linked to from that page, and one of the nice features of the lookbooks are 360-degree videos, found here. For quick reference, check out a page with thumbnails of the designs (with links to videos) here. There’s a little bit of everything — cardis, pullovers, ponchos, accessories. The designs are knit from readily available yarns and you can even order your yarn from Annie’s, building your own kit.
Work in Progress
My Hitchhiker Beyond is progressing slowing because I only managed a few minutes of lunchtime knitting each day. But here is a progress photo:
And here is my little angel relaxing on his sofa.
