Retrospective + May 2018

April Showers Bring May Flowers

Wow, April flew by so quickly! One minute it was still wintery and the next moment I'm wearing shorts and spending long days in the sun. This past weekend I made my first spring cleaning attempt in our front garden and I'm quite proud of my progress considering I have absolutely no green in my thumb. May is already off to an exciting start and I have a lot of pots on the burners, so to speak: work, a new real estate class, the tops, tanks, and tees kal, and the KKD business updates. I'm glad that this real estate class is only one month long or I will be suffering from some serious burnout.

Given that my schedule is going to be so crazed, I'm focusing on only two projects this month: The Aislyn Pullover from Quince & Co, and a self-published design in the works, which I'm naming Eilat after our recent trip to Israel.

The Aislyn pullover is a different take on sweater construction in that it is worked in four separate pieces and seamed down the center front for a neat detail. I chose Quince & Co's Kestrel in Hyacinth and I am loving every stitch!


Eilat is a top-down double v-neck tank knit in Quince & Co's Sparrow in Blue Spruce. I'm knitting this as part of a small mini collection featuring my favorite lace stitch. All four patterns should be published by mid-summer if all goes according to schedule.
