What happened to November?!

Time flies when you are working All The Time! Don't get me wrong, I'm still loving it, but I'll bet I worked 60 hours a week on designs this month!  I did publish two!

This is Teaberry - a textured baby blanket or throw:

and this is Serra - a cardigan knit from the top down with seamless, simultaneous set-in sleeves. The sleeves are NOT picked up and knit down using short rows. This is a technique of Barbara Walker's that seems to have been mostly overlooked:

I also knit this without the big collar -

My testers really liked this construction method and were a tremendous help in getting the instructions clarified and illustrated. I'm working on another sweater using this method and have several more 'in my head.' Stay tuned!
