Manos preview.

And here they are.
Ready for publication.

Very excited to have this collection finished!
As I mentioned in my last post,
these are for Manos del Uruguay yarns, Fall 2012 Collection.

Still coming up with names for each.
1 | Oversized pullover in Maxima
2 | Striped raglan pullover in Silk Blend
3 | Boxy Tee in Serena
4 | Chunky textured cowl in Classica
5 | Handwarmer/Sleeves in Maxima

They’re busy getting the patterns ready now.
So if you happen to be at TNNA in June,
stop by and see them in person.

They should be available via Ravelry download soon, too.

In other news, we sold our house last month!
And as of yesterday, the movers have begun packing.
By next week I’ll be off traveling with the family.
Arrival in Saint Louis around May 20th.

Lots more exciting things to come…

    Hello Julie,

    I have just now discovered you after I saw (and purchased) Chaleur on Ravelry. Your work is simply beautiful. I love the clean and classic look you bring to your designs. And your photography shows off your work beautifully. In short, you have a new reader and fan. I am looking forward to following you.

    Best of luck in your new home,

      Thank you, Anne! :)

    Beautiful. The tee is perfect for Atlanta.
    Dear friends of ours lived in St. Louis area for a few years. It was a great experience for them. And for me (I got to go to a fantastic, creative museum, see the B-52’s under the arch, ice skate, serve at a soup kitchen in East St. Louis, and lounge around with my best friend). Hopefully it will be a fun adventure for your family.
