What a Glorious Weather Week It Has Been!

Have you too had glorious weather this week? Oh my, my, it’s been unbelievable here in northern Illinois. It’s like early September all over again. It could stay like this forever… What a stretch of the best November weather ever!

After finishing up my last Little Darling’s ensemble and publishing an embroidery video I finally buckled down and got to work on a new knitting pattern. I have been asked to write a pattern for my ear flap hat (for the Little Darlings) for awhile now. I am happy to say that after a good proofreading and then converting the pages to a pdf it will be ready.

Alice is here to show you a couple of pics of her stripy ear flap hat. Even though the rest of the ensemble hasn’t been made yet I wanted to get this pattern out to you asap. I’m sure the weather will start turning towards hat weather soon and it’s good to be prepared. 😉

This pattern includes a YouTube video link as a supplement to the pattern. Lately whenever I want to know how to do something I go to YouTube and search there first. There’s nothing like watching the instructions rather than solely reading them and trying to figure out what they mean. I hope my video alleviates any questions about how to do things.

You can see the coloring page in the photo above that I include in the pattern. You will be able to plan out your stripy pattern on this graph. Print out as many times as you want and color away…

Look for this pattern on Ravelry this coming week.

How has your week been? Has any knitting, sewing, or crocheting been happening over at your place? I’d love to hear what you’ve been up to.

Thanks for stopping by! ❤

    Wonderful as always, Cindy. Your work is so delicate and pretty. I always look forward to reading your updates. Make the most of that mild autumn weather while you can.

    It’s adorable. You tube video supplements are always helpful. I think I’ve said this before but wanting your patrons to succeed is the sign of a great designer/teacher. You have inspired me to get out my dolly fabric. I’m struggling with the pattern I have. I am trying to make the bodice look like yours, meaning that it is one piece and modifying some of the seam allowances. We’ll see. I’ll keep you posted. I am also training or should I say attempting to train my 3 month old Australian Labradoodle. He’s adorable despite the fact that he is a little terrorist. The weather here in MD is glorious. Have a great week Cindy.
    Cheers and blessing

      Hi, Marian. Thank you so much!!! It’s so nice to inspire you to sew. I’m sorry your pattern is giving you trouble. Maybe I’ll be able to figure out how to include a drawing in a pdf so that I can share my pattern.
      Wow! It sounds like you have your hands full. Training dogs takes so much time! They are so precious as that age though.
      Happy to hear you are having glorious weather too. What a gift!
      Enjoy your week too! ❤
