❄️Ever do a photo shoot in a blizzard?❄️ It's not fun.  The shooting had to wrap up almost as soon as it started!  Sensitive electronics + snow do not mix! 🙄  I will get a cover shot for my #winterswalkcowl eventually!!!

💖 Test Knitters Needed 💖 
I am looking for several Knitters to test my new hat pattern over in Ravelry. 
If you love cables, twisted stitches, bobbles and want something new to cast-on, follow the link in my bio.  Written and charted instructions are both available. 
This hat was knit with Cascade 220 in worsted weight and used less than a skein. 
Love to have your help! 💖🐑💖

Backwards knitting is so fun!  A test Knitter suggested it and I am hooked.  When you have a lot of stitches on a round and quite a few are bobbles, this method really saves time. 💖🐑💖

🌟Done!🌟 Up next, finish the fab TE corrections by @meanestmommy , then glam shoot! 💖
Right now on my needles is the matching hat prototype.  I find I like to sketch/chart my designs first, then cast-on to see if the drape/structure is what I envisioned.  That's AFTER I swatched my stitch pattern, of course!
I used to use OpenOffice to write up my patterns but now I'm in love with the open source programme Scribus.  Huge learning curve, and no spelling check.  Or if there is one, I haven't found it yet! 🙂
#fulldisclosure ... Designing can be costly.  Buying yarn, paying for Tech Editing, and hiring models... It can be a budget buster.  The total cost for this design so far is appropriately $115 Canadian.  That's NOT including the models and the photo shoot yet.  Plus the time to knit, coz time is money these days.  To keep the costs down, I do my own pattern layouts and charting. 
So that's where I'm at with "A Winter's Walk" cowl. 
Just as a side note, come join my tribe by signing up for my newsletter and get a 25% off coupon for any of my patterns!  Link is in my profile😘

🤪When is a bobble not a bobble?  When it is in the wrong place!  Like, all over the row.🙄 Watching suspenseful tv in dim light without my pattern.  Lesson learned!  Even though I designed this cowl, I obviously still needed the chart.  So my friends, I probably won't have a finished "A Winter's Walk Cowl" to show you today. 🐑How do people knit in theatres????🐑 Have you done something like this?  What show were you watching?

Don't you just love a crisp twisted rib that flows neatly into the main pattern?  That is something I learned from studying @ysolda  Teague's patterns.  Love her work! 
What is your favourite ribbing-- twisted or knit/purl? 🌟🐑🌟 #awinterswalkcowl #knittersofinstagram #knitting #knitlife #cableknit #cableknitting #knittinglove #knitlove #knittingwithlove #cowl #knittedcowl #slowfashionmovement #handmadebyme #knitted
🌟Last skein!🌟 Though I enjoyed every minute, I will be very happy when it is done.  This is my latest design, "A Winters Walk" cowl.  I'm knitting the x-large size.  Will wrap double around my neck.  Can't wait to wear it, but that may be a while, since my dear daughter is eyeing it! 🌟🌟🌟🌟
If you love cables, follow the link in my profile and sign up for my newsletter.  There's a coupon code to get 25% off my patterns!  It's a one time gift and only available to the first 500 people.  Enjoy!😘
