FO: Havelock Cowl

I am a process knitter... so when I get bored with something, it usually gets thrown in with the rest of the UFOs and is not seen for months (sometimes years!).  But every once in awhile I get around to actually finishing something.  :oD  Here's my Havelock Cowl:
Yarn:  StitchJones Eco Art Handpainted Eco Wool
Needles:  US 10 circs

It's a fun and simple pattern that comes out beautifully!  Also is a fairly quick knit for anyone looking for something for gifting.  This one is going to be a gift, actually.  Luckily, I don't believe that person checks my blog anyways.  ;o)

Consummate V's Hat

I finally have my pattern edited and ready for publishing!  It will be going live tomorrow, if I can get the pictures inserted and whatnot.  The minute details of publishing a pattern is what takes me forever.  :o)  I hope you guys enjoy my first hat pattern!

My Queue

Is it just me, or does everyone have a humongous queue on Ravelry??  I will never be able to knit everything on it, and it doesn't even represent the patterns I want to make in books I own or the future patterns to come... Here are a few of the patterns in my queue:
Labyrinth Lullaby Socks
Foxy Dress

Birthday Month!

I love October.  Some of the best weather happens in October.  You finally get that transition from summer into fall during October.  Even in my birth state of California, the evenings and mornings start to get a coolness to them, while the days stay nice and sunny.  Here in Texas, I thought summer was never going to end... and yet now, I'm leaving for work in the morning and I'm feeling the crispness in the air.  The humidity is starting to quiet down and the evenings are perfect for walking.  Yes, it is still 80s and 90s during the day, but it's not the overbearing heat that makes you dread being outside anymore.  October really does bring fall into play.

The other reason I love October is because it's my birthday month!  To celebrate this awesome month, I'm going to be selling my patterns at 50% off!  All you need to do is use the coupon code "october" when checking out.  And, as an extra bonus, I will be releasing a free pattern in the middle of the month!
