Brrrr!!!! Are you staying cozy with your knitting project during this arctic blast we are having here in Colorado!? I hope so! Personally, I have several projects on the needles right now, and I'm super thrilled about it. I recently purchased some more fun yarns on a visit to Arizona, and am very proud of myself for planning out which projects I am going to knit with them.
It has been a really busy and intense end of the year for me, complete with trials and tribulations. But also a lot of deep reflection and learning. There have been many great reminders to keep up the self-care, and self-love, and knitting is a direct way to this! It helps bring peace and gives me something to look forward to. I hope it has done the same for you!
I had wanted to send out a note sooner, but we do our best, and so here it is!
I have published several new patterns this year, all for hats, and I would like to offer you a coupon code if you decide to purchase one from my Ravelry store.
The code is KNITNOW22, and it is good for 20% off until the end of 2022!
Below you can see and link directly to the patterns :) I also have them available on Etsy, but not with a coupon yet.
Well, we are closing in on the remaining holidays for this year - wish you a very Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, Blessed Solstice, or whatever your holiday of choice is!
Astrologically, we are approaching a Mercury Retrograde period, and I find this is a great time to work on finishing up projects, but not really starting new ones. It tends to be a time that is good for words starting with "Re" - including Rest, Relaxing, and Reflection. Best to take it slow and get through the pile of Repairs. Or patterns with lots of Repeats!
And if you are already thinking ahead to some Resolutions in the new year, it will be a great time for it.
Personally, I am working on a lot of things: Releasing lots of hang-ups from the past, Re-learning lessons that didn't quite take the first time, and Readying myself with new goals and a change of pace.
Some things to look out for from me in the new year:
* New Videos - It's been a long time coming, but I have a long list and plan to be sharing more knitting help videos!!
* New Classes - I plan on offering my Astrology Knitting - Knitting by the Stars again, learning from lessons from my first class and applying them again. I'm also toying with the idea of teaching a Stranded Intarsia technique class, which will support how to knit my CO Flag Mtn Sunset hat (offered below!)
* More Newsletters - Writing is another craft I have been working on and working to get better at. So I plan on writing more newsletters and sharing with you about knitting, astrology, etc.
I appreciate your continued support by staying a subscriber and follower of Astraknots. There is still much excitement on the horizon.
Wishing you all the best!
