Hello and Happy Saturday

Today has been a crazy day.  We put up our tree, now it isn't done yet but it is started and the decorating of the house has begun!  We are hoping to be done Sunday night!  So due to that I have nothing to blog about but I am hoping to have the throw done tonight and soon as it is done, blocked and the testing is done I will share it with all of you.  Have a great weekend and I will type at you tomorrow!

Review of Intwined Pattern Studio Program

Intwined Pattern Studio

Last week I invested in the Intwined Pattern Studio Program and all I can say is it is amazing! I was doing all my patterns using Excel for my charts and then Microsoft word for my pattern lay out. Now with Intwined Pattern Studio I can get everything done in ½ the time! This program allows you to draw out your chart, so if you know the lace pattern you want to create or the cable you want to make you can just set the chart to the number of stitches and rows you want and then draw it on. Now the amazing magical thing that this program does for you is it will write out the written directions for you as you make the chart. Now if you know the written directions but want to make a chart this program can help you there too! Just type in the written directions line by line and the chart will magically appear for you! I can’t say enough about this wonderful program and how helpful it is in producing your charts and patterns! Thank You so much Intwined for this wonderful product that at a cost of $44 is an amazing bargain. I do want to say I was not contacted by this company in anyway and this is an unsolicited review of their great product! I just had to share with you all how great it is. If you are interested in more information please go to their website located at

I am hoping to bring you more reviews in the future! Thank you.

Celtic Trinity Knot Throw Preview

As you all know I have been working on my Celltic Trinity Knot throw, which is based on my Celtic Trinity knot Filet Crochet pattern (I love this knot!)  Well I thought it would be fun to show you how it is going.  I have 113 rows done now and I have 63 rows left to knit.  I was thinking this would be 50" x 50" but it might be a bit bigger I will find out once I block it.  Once it is done it will go into testing and if you would like to test this please leave me a comment here with a way to contact you and I will get back to you or pm me on Ravelry I am ladyfemme on there.  Well here goes!

I am knitting this with the wonderful Cascade 128 Superwash yarn that I reviewed a few days ago!  It is 100% Superwash Merino Wool and each skein is 128 yards, in color way number 804.  I just wish my photographic skills where better so you could see the soft fluffyness of this yarn!  So how do you like this so far?

Dark Rainy day

Today I finished my pattern samples for the patterns I want to submit to Interweave now I just need to type the patterns up, take the pictures and type the proposal and send it off which I will be doing tomorrow.  I will also take a picture of the throw I am doing now that is 1/2 done so you can all see a preview of it!  It has been so dark and rainy here today I had to have the lights on all day just to be able to see to knit!  I will be doing another yarn review this week so look out for that!  Sorry this is a short post today but I just don't have alot to talk about today.  I promise I will be better tomorrow!
