being a knitter kind of makes fall even more special. and you know i've been thinking of warmer knits! :)

wahoo! told ya i had a surprise for you!!!
quite some time ago, i did a test knit for jill zielinski the mastermind behind knitterella. you know who i'm talking about.. i know you do :) not only does she design knitting patterns, but is a graphic designer, does lots of plucky labels (*swoon*) and her gift tags are the cutest and awesomemest (it's a word) addition to any handknit.
you can check out more of knitterella's knitting designs here.
anyhoo the test knit i did was for the eli slouch hat. a fun, easy knit for kollage yarns.

so there you go. a great start to the knitting season, no? something you should know though.. the little fam is going on holidays next week until the 24th of september. as i already have the yarn and pattern here at home, i'll be the one mailing it all out to the winner... (and i hope it's you!) lol. so i won't be able to pop it in the mail until after we're back. i'm not planning on taking any holiday from this space though :) we're totally going glamping. which means, i'll have internet. so i'll stay connected. but don't worry. we don't leave until next week ;)
