Vintage Aeroplane Pillow

I mentioned in a previous post that I was starting work on designing a pillow unlike any I've seen before.... Well it's all done, and currently in the process of being tested on Ravelry. I'm SO happy with how it turned out, and hope you all fall in love with it as well!

My nephew had a vintage-airplane themed 1st birthday recently, and I designed this for his present. It features a vintage bi-plane on the front, seed stitch borders, a fabric back, and a zipper in the bottom for easy removal. I've never tried to combine fabric with knitting before, and I've also never put a zipper in my knitting... So this was quite the new experience! Despite having to make it up as I went, I'm REALLY pleased with how it turned out, and this whole process has been making my brain churn with more possibilities for new patterns!

As soon as it's done being test-knitted, I'll be releasing this pattern for sale, hopefully in time for Christmas knitting!

Oruga Baby Blanket is Available!!!

My new pattern, Oruga, is now available for purchase on Ravelry!!!  I'm so excited about it, and hope you all love it as much as I do!  :)

Oruga Baby Blanket

I'm super excited to be getting back into designing some knitting patterns!!! It's been a couple of years since I've been able to play around and design something myself, instead of just doing other people's patterns! I just finished this blanket, and am currently trying to get test-knitters for it on Ravelry (let me know if you want in on this, and I'll let you know how!).

It's knit with a super bulky chenille yarn, so it's SUPER cozy for a little one. Because of the chunky yarn, it's a relatively quick knit, and doesn't get boring like many baby blankets. It has a simple grid pattern, with lacy squares, stockinette squares, and seed stitch squares. Very simple, but so classy looking! 

As soon as I can get the pattern released, I will be posting a link on here! :)

(P.S. I'm also starting work on a pillow pattern that I'm SUPER excited about! I've never even seen a pattern quite like it, so it is completely experimental. I think it's going to turn out really well, and I can't wait for you all to see it!!!)

Pirate Ringo's Salsa

Non-knitting related post ahead! (unless you like eating chips and salsa while knitting.....) ;) 

I just wanted to take a minute and let you all know about a business venture my sis and her husband are trying to launch: Pirate Ringo's Salsa. My brother-in-law has made his own salsa for years, and has had many, many people tell him he should market it. So just within the last few months he's decided to try a go at it. They can only sell to friends and family currently, until they get licensed, so they have started a Kickstarter campaign to try and raise funds so they can get licensed faster, and then get the salsa in the hands of the public faster. Every salsa lover who has tried this stuff has raved about it, saying it's some of the best out there!

So if you're into salsa, please go check out their Kickstarter campaign, and consider making a donation to get this thing off the ground! You'll get freebies for your donation too.... everything from Christmas ornaments, tote bags, jars of salsa, oven mitts, t-shirts, and the ultimate- a signature Pirate Ringo's Salsa created in your honor and named after you!

On a side note.... aren't my niece and nephew the cutest little pirates ever??? ;)
