Going to Big Places

If you have been keeping an eye on my Ravelry designer’s page you may have noticed that not much has changed in the last few months. Painted Plumes came out in March and has done very well but no new patterns have been added. After my father passed away in April knitting and designing took a back burner. I’m happy to report that there are new designs in the works!

The first of the Fall 2014 patterns is on schedule to come out towards the end of August and there are three more for September and October. One of them is even a free hat pattern! Who doesn’t love free patterns. From the start it has been my intention to offer a selection of free patterns and this will be the first one.

For a preview of unreleased patterns you can check out my projects in Ravelry. There is a tab for JahDK samples and prototypes. As you can see from the image below, about two-thirds of them have yet to be released.

My big news this week is that I’m heading out on a road trip! Tomorrow morning my partner and I start a little pilgrimage to scatter my father’s ashes in the Rockies and visit with family in BC’s interior. Along the way I’ll be checking out yarn stores, knitting and taking photos like crazy. Who knows, I may even pick up a skein of yarn or two. It has been many. many years since I camped or did any serious hiking but this will all be changing in the next few days! I hope my knees hold up. What ever shape I’m in there will be blog posts about the journey in the next few days. I must admit, I’m rather excited for sleeping in a tent again.

  1. Have a great time!! I am starting the hat tonight. Enjoy the yarn stores. i heard the one in Kamloops is great! My neighbour shops there, and brought home some gorgeous sock yarn last year!

    • I have a list of yarn shops to check out along the way and (wifi permited) will be posting reviews and pictures throughout the week. The one in Kootey looks uber cute, hopefully I don’t blow my yarn budget on the first day.

      And thank you for knitting the hat! I look forward to seeing how it turned out.
