And I start Week Two

Challenge Day 8

I\’ve made it through one complete week of this challenge and I\’m very proud of myself. I\’m settling in very nicely to a routine of posting every afternoon while my son naps and knitting for the remainder of his naptime and during the evening while I watch T.V. Today however, I think most of naptime will be spent on the computer, printing off comments and picking out a winner for our first (of what I hope will be many) weekly prize drawing. Everyone who left me a comment this week is eligible and entered to win. The prize consists of pdf files of each of the patterns that I added to the website this week. (Sorry no substitutions for other patterns.)

Today\’s pattern is another one of my Back-to-School patterns that has be lounging around since last year, just waiting to be typed and test knitted. It\’s a School Bus, and I knit it in a bright cheery yellow. The blocking came out a bit funky and it looks a little warped in this picture. I may have to try to re-block it because I think it definetly looks a bit weird.


Like all the other patterns that I\’ve been blogging about, this one is available for purchase for $1.49 and can be found on the New page in the main section of Designs by Emily.

Later this week I\’ll be adding another pattern for Back-to-School, one for Thanksgiving, two sea animals, and the one that I\’m working on right now is a Winter themed cloth.  But I could always finish up some others that I want to add instead and I\’m just teasing you by listing these!  You never know! 🙂

Watch this space later today for an update about our Weekly Challenge Winner.
