So this is a very overdue post. Because I am a horrible person who does not update my blog. But, on the up side, I actually have a lot to report this time.
First off, for those of you who might have been salivating over the PHuN the Chameleon kit (hey, I can dream, right?), the pattern is now available for sale on Ravelry. Eventually I also plan on making him available here on the website and on Etsy. He’s been available since May 15th, actually, which the 5th podiversary of the Pen, Hook, and Needles podcast, but other things kept me distracted and so I hadn’t posted an update here.
And what things distracted me? Awesome things, I think. And I hope you do too.
Basically, a really big designing bug took hold and I knocked out two designs in quick succession. Meet Terra the Sea Turtle and Valeria the Dutch Bunny!
Terra has been complete for about two to three weeks, but Valeria is brand spanking new… and took two days to design and complete. Probably would have taken even less time if I hadn’t had to work one night during that stretch. Yeah, I was really on fire with her. That happens sometimes. And I love bunnies. Although Terra is very special to me too. I mean, look at her face and those floppy fins. I might be in love. Because I’m the kind of designer who falls in love with my own designs. What can I say? I love toys and never really grew out of that.
But this leads to the next exciting thing down the pike. If you haven’t started thinking about it yet, start thinking about Tortoise vs. Hare. We’re a little more than a week away from this, one of my favorite Crochet-along/Knit-alongs (CAL/KALs), starting. It is the brainchild of friend and fellow podcaster Laura of the CrochetingWhovian podcast. This is the second year for this CAL/KAL and I’m psyched! Hence the two new designs. And guess who should be in testing during that time and becoming available for purchase during that time. Yup, Terra and Valeria. So keep your eyes on the Pen, Hook, And Needles Ravelry group if you want to get in on the testing. New blood as well as repeat testers are welcome!
Team Hare rules! May the best Bunny win.
