This Time It Will Fit

Last night, while watching 90s sitcoms and sitting in front of a fan at full blast, I whacked out a chunk of the Summer Pelisse for Jeana.  This time, I knit the size about what she would fit now, because I was unsure how long it would take me to knit it.  As it stands now, I have the right front and most of the back done.  This leaves the left front, two sleeves, and a tiny button band until I reach completion.  I think I can get it finished by Sunday evening.  Famous last words…I know, I know.  Sunday will be my only solo day for the entire summer.  I won’t have another day off until the second weekend of September.  And by “day off” I mean a day in which I can accomplish what is on my task list without obstacle, kick up my feet if I wish, and knit to my heart’s content.  I will have two vacations, but those are so jam packed and crazy I can’t really see them as “days off.”


Anyway, back to the Pelisse.  The color in the photos is looking more lilac than what the color is in reality.  It’s more of a navy, cornflower type thing.  Not as dark as navy, but along those lines.   I love it, and I think with the horseshoe lace pattern, it’s turning out rather feminine and sweet.  This is the same yarn as the other one, knit to a slightly looser gauge.  I really like the feel of the fabric – full of drape and very soft.


I have one more of these to make.  This last one will be for Jeana’s big sister Ryley, and will be in a lovely lavender.  That probably won’t get started until sometime in September, but could end up being a little later.

Also, a reader pointed out to me that a link wasn’t working in a previous post.  I fixed it, and want to reiterate why the link was there.

At the end of August I will be driving to Black Rock Desert with my daughter and a friend to attend Burning Man.  This is kind of a big deal for me – a major bucket list item will be crossed off with this adventure, and so many stories, inspiration, and friendships will be borne from it.  Remember Lakes of Fire?  It’s like that, but BIGGER!  I will be departing on my birthday for the most world-changing experience I’ve ever undertaken on my road to self-discovery.

But, it ain’t cheap.  To fund this trip, I am offering a discount to my Etsy shop.  Use coupon code PIXIE2BURNINGMAN to receive 25% off anything your little heart desires.  All funds from sales will go to my bucket list.  I will even include a mystery gift with every purchase (excluding digital patterns).  Custom orders are included in this – so if you want a special pair of wings or knitwear designed specifically for *you*, please consider this.  Your help is greatly appreciated!!
