Back to knitting!

I know it’s been awhile since I’ve posted but it’s been longer recuperating than I expected. We also have been dealing with some family health issues.

I’ve finished my Amie sweater and a pair of socks using the Crosshatch stitch pattern. Today, I finished another one of my Spotted Diamonds hat for my husband. I’m so excited about this hat because it’s the best fair isle project I’ve made. There is NO puckering and it fits him perfect.

How to search Ravelry for most recently published patterns

Are you looking to find out what patterns have just been published on Ravelry?  I ran across this link just the other day. Log into (it’s a free membership if you don’t already belong to this awesome knitting and crocheting community).  Click on the Patterns tab and on the left side, a little ways down the Recently Added Patterns section.  There are thumbnail photos for all the patterns and there is a link that will allow you to do an advanced search and set certain filters for just hats, let’s say.
