Yarn Along: Exciting News - Saint Catherine of Alexandria Has Been Released!!!
So, first things first, I am almost half way finished with Amira's cropped hoodie. I'm hoping to have it finished for her by the end of the month, so she can start wearing it to ballet. Also, I am nearly finished with all my swatches/prototypes and have already submitted one design proposal, with five to do next week and two more due at the end of the month. But that's not what I'm really excited about now.

Storey Publications released their One-Skein Wonders for Babies: 101 Knitting Projects for Infants & Toddlers, and so I have released Saint Catherine of Alexandria for individual purchase also. Please check out the book, there are a lot of great designs in there. I'll be posting a little more about the book in just over a week. I'd love it if you favorited, queued, bought the pattern, too, all of those count quite a lot when a pattern is first released. It's a really quick knit, and so adorable! In fact, for the release, I have a coupon code, good through 11:59 p.m. PDT, September 10, 2015 - Alexandria - that will get you 25% off the purchase price, if you wish only to buy this pattern, rather than the whole book. If you pay attention to dates, there will be another sale on it in a couple months, too.
Here is Nejat in a variation of Saint Catherine last summer.
And here's the weekly reminder to like Arabian Knits Designs on Facebook, if you haven't already. That's where I put updates and testing opportunities and other design news. There hasn't been a lot posted there in a while, but your liking it gets me more visibility with folks who may not know about my patterns and that helps. Thank you!
I haven't been doing a whole lot of my own reading, because of the mad swatching and sketching and proposalling. However, I did start to read The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, 25th Anniversary Edition to our kids since Rich and I love the books and have enjoyed reading them aloud to each other since we were dating. I had forgotten how much bad language was in them, so I kind of ended up whispering parts of the book while reading, but other than that, everyone is really enjoying the absurdity.

I love The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy and have been choking with laughter at times when reading it :)
