I’ve moved testing from the private Google group to my Ravelry group.  Currently I’m running tests for several patterns from the upcoming Textured e-book and the Lace 2 e-book.  I’m able to check Ravelry often, and this makes it easier for me to check up on how the testers are doing, etc.  Check out the various threads for sneak previews of the patterns!

I’ve moved back the release dates on Textured and Lace 2. This lets me get the patterns tested, and, more importantly, lets me do just one more photoshoot for the collection rather than two photoshoots.  All the patterns are knitted except for one, a laceweight crescent shawl in Zen Yarn Garden Serenity Lace, that I’m currently working on. It’s a big ‘un, though I hope to get it done within two weeks.

I have a cowl coming out in early August that’s part of the Malabrigo Quickies program.  It’s a fun cabled knit, and, as advertised, should be quick to knit and great for gifts!

What’s up next? I’ve already been thinking about the next collection (Tidepools) and a  standalone pattern (Sedona Deconstructed).

And here’s a sneak peek of Cereus from Lace 2!
