Work in progress.....

Future monster's blanket
Happy New Year!
I hope everyone had wonderful time with their families and friends over the holidays.

The past year in my knitting world was very interesting. I have accomplished a lot, an E-book with  31 patterns, three of my patterns were published in three knitting patterns collection books and many other patterns that were published in my Ravelry store or on Knitpicks website. I am very happy and proud about these achievements.

Anyway, it's another year and time to move on, and keep on knitting.

Finally, after many years of thinking about it, I have a yarn ball winder, and I do not need other people's hands or chairs to hold my skein of yarns. Ever since I have received the winder my child has been playing with it, and small remnants of yarns has been rewind into giant colorful skeins. I have been thinking about making a monster's blanket and decided to use these colorful skeins for the blanket. I think it will be fun and colorful blanket once it's finished.

Also I have the first toy mystery KAL in my group on Ravelry. Don't forget to join us.

I was also asked to test knit a pattern for a fellow designer. Once the pattern is available I will add the link. It is wonderful pattern for an adorable snowman, and my finished sample will be donated to our library's summer reading program raffle prize.

Happy Holidays

When I was growing up, one of the tradition in my country was to have a live carp in the bathtub. The fish was purchased from a market, carried home, and stayed in a bathtub until it was time to be our Christmas Eve dinner. As a child I was fascinated by the slow moving carp, but I never ate the fish.

Three years ago, my child wanted to have a fish in the bathtub. I knitted one and we named him Karel (Charlie, in English language). This is how the knitting pattern for Charlie, the fish started.

To celebrate Karel's third year as our Christmas carp, I have created promotion in my Ravelry store.
If you enter code Karel between now and December 29th 2015 you will receive 15% off of all of my knitting patterns.

I wish you a wonderful holidays with your family and friends.

And a little preview for the New Year. In January I will have another toy Mystery KAL in my group Stana's critters etc on Ravelry.

Tina, Mystery KAL

Thank you for visiting my little corner filled with knitted toys.
