A big bunch of independent designers on Ravelry (including myself) decided to organize a giftalong for the holidays with KALS/CALS, prizes and, probably best of all, a 25% discount on 100s of patterns to prepare for the gift season. There are over 160 designers taking part, so there is something for everybody.
Here’s a description of what it is, copied from the group:
What is the Indie Design Gift-A-Long?
It’s prepping for the holidays as only fiber folks can, with special deals from tons of indie designers! The Indie Design Gift-A-Long is a 2 month long KAL/CAL of holiday gifts made from patterns designed by a rather extensive list of independent designers. From November 1 – November 15, 2013 tons of indie designers will be discounting some or all of their patterns 25% for this event. There are ten KAL/CALs to participate in, prizes of all sorts given out, some games, and generally a lot of fun!
If you think you might be interested, go check the group for more detail. Enjoy!
I created my Cowboy Booties pattern for a Texan friend of mine who was expecting a baby girl. Yesterday, I finally got to see pictures of the booties modeled by their intended recipient, lovely Miss Avery 😀
After a little wait, I can now announce that the pattern for the Cowboy Booties is available. Thanks to the very valuable help from my testers I can now offer a smooth pattern.
Pattern costs $5.00
These booties will make a perfect baby shower gift, and not only for Texan babies!
They have an internal bootie with ribbing at the ankle (cannot be seen when worn). The boot part is added onto it, so that it will stay on baby’s feet.
Necessary skills to make these are: knitting in the round, picking up stitches, Fair Isle knitting
The colour work is charted.
More details on the pattern are available on Ravelry:
Pattern in 2 sizes: 0-6 months & 6-12 months
And, thanks to their help, I should be able to publish the Cowboy Booties pattern soon, probably Monday at the latest. So, stay tuned!
Here is a preview of a work in progress from one of the testers
I hope everyone is having a great day!
Here are two of the presents I got today, I’m super happy about these! 😀
