Lined Beanie for Hubs in the larger size.
Plied the Southdown – very little ply definition, but it is soooo smushy! I got 96 yards of a 2-ply from just over an ounce.

Writing up Patterns: I start with the knitting, and take notes as I go. I photograph the finished object before I write up the pattern, because that way I know how big the pics are and where to work around them. I create a document in MS Word, using two columns on a page. I insert a colored text box with important info to make it pop a bit. As I write up the pattern, I try to keep the directions conversational to reduce confusion. Once it’s all on the page, I play with margins and such to get things to look just right. When I’m happy with it, I save it as a .pdf file so anyone can get it/read it. You can download Primo PDF or use an online site (google “pdf converter”).
Trying to have a big update this week. I hope you enjoy it all!
