many, many thank you's to all of my followers

I wanted to post on the blog today for a few reasons:

1) I want to send lots of internet hugs out to all of my followers this week! You really did a wonderful job spreading the word and I've seen a lot of new faces in the comments. Thank you, thank you, thank you...

2) It's Friday, and I wanted to say Happy Friday to everyone! Hope everyone has had a good week. I have a guest designer scheduled for the new giveaway on Monday and a fun little interview I did with her to post. She's hip, fun, sweet, and has super cute patterns! I'm excited that she'll be featured next week along with a special giveaway for all ya'all.

3) I've been busy getting designers and scheduling the next giveaways, so I haven't had much time to knit. I had mentioned awhile ago that I was knitting the Victorian T-Shirt for my sister's new baby that's due at the end of April, and I'm still knitting the same little sweater! However, I did get a chance to knit up a quick striped hat for a designer that needed test knitters this past week. The pattern is called Oliver and it should be up on Ravelry shortly, I believe. My hat turned out really great, if I do say so myself, but I didn't do a gauge swatch (I know, I know...) so the hat fits Jasmine now and not Marc. That's alright though, because Marc (who is color blind) thought the gray stripes were pink! The funniest part of all of this is that the gray that I used in this striped hat is the left overs from the gray Claudia hat he got for Christmas and was wearing in the second giveaway pics I posted. So, does he think he's wearing an all pink hat when he wears his Claudia?! Here's a pic of Jasmine wearing the Oliver beanie for all of you to see:



Also, I finally got around to photographing the Dorset Buttons I made awhile back. I got some really cute pictures of those as well and I wanted to share one of them with you, because the colors remind me of Spring time. If you have not seen this pattern/tutorial before, I'd highly recommend it. It is not knit or crocheted, but I think it's easy enough to make and really compliments knitted and crocheted garments. The supplies are cheap and easy to get, and the buttons are super cute and light weight when finished. Alright, I'm done blabbing about how much I like these little guys and here's the pic:



Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
