The joy of giving

Do you remember this beauty that I spun up?

It recently turned into this!!



Pretty snazzy, eh? Simplicity in its absolute finest form. It leaves today for a new home and I sure hope the recipient is pleasantly surprised by the gift. =)

Introducing Cerelia

It's been a fab week in the world of design for Tabetha! Cerelia, designed for Bijou Basin Ranch, has been officially released! Yippee!

And here is their sweet write up of it:
"Detailed, lacy, and unique, this shawl will be one of your most prized possessions. Designed by Tabetha Hedrick using Bijou Spun’s 100% Yak, Fingering Weight yarn, the stitches in the pattern keep it interesting and fun from start to finish. A beautiful, soft and almost weightless piece at the end is sure to become a classic."

Makes me feel all professional and whatnot. Hehe. I hope you take the chance to knit this fabulous shawl, available for immediate download at the BBR Website.

I am floored at the skill in these knits. Seriously. Be prepared to be floored.

Leaf Trim V-Neck

Yippee! The September issue of Creative Knitting Magazine is finally out and do you know what is in it (as a web bonus pattern)?

Tee hee! That's my design! I'm pretty psyched out it, though my perfectionist mind is at work... as I look back to that (it was knit almost a year ago), I realize I have learned SO much more since then! My knitting has improved exponentially, as well as my concepts, ideas, and construction techniques. Every day is a new chance of growing, eh? 

Anyways, it has been placed as a web bonus feature so it isn't in the actual magazine, but SOON my designs will be .. I can't wait to show you the two designs in their upcoming November issue. In the meantime, if you subscribe or purchase the current issue, you can check it out online

Glutton for Punishment

I asked for it. I did. And while I love it, I'm a little freaked out by it.

3 designs accepted and less than 5 weeks to get them all done.


But, I can totally do it (is what I told myself last night).

I have a history of some insanity. It comes into play right about ...
