Holla Knits!

OMG! I submitted a sweater design to Holla Knits and it was accepted! I am sooo excited! …and nervous! This is my first original sweater design.  I’ve gone through a few template design  books and a software program to help with the sizing.  I’ve browsed my stack of knitting stitch books to come up with a fun (I hope!!) knitting design.

 I’m calculating a range of sizes.  Trying to decide how the knitting pattern works into the sweater pattern.  A rough draft is almost complete.  Then, typing it and actual knitting!

Have you checked out Holla Knits Spring/Summer 2012 Collection yet?  You can find them on Ravelry and on the Holla Knits Website     I’m looking forward later this summer to knitting In a While Crocodile or the Holla Back Tank .  They are so cute, I can’t decide so I may have to knit both!  I’ll have lots of knitting time in July since both of my kiddos are heading off to summer programs!

Allyson has already sent me the yarn (more on that it my next post). I’ve knitted a swatch and I’m working the stitch calculations into the pattern.  The yarn is so pretty! I can’t  wait to cast on! Stay tuned for more updates and progress reports!
