It has taken me ages to get around to blogging this, but the Laylock website is finally up! I’m quite pleased with the way it looks at the moment, and can’t wait to fill it up properly.

In anticipation of Easter (which is on the 12th of April this year), I decided to re-relase my Chick Egg Cosy pattern as a PDF, with extra instructions. It’s been getting a lot of love on Ravelry, with over 200 faves! :) I gave all of the original chicks away to friends, so I had to knit another couple to photograph. Here they are, modeled by real eggs. They even had some adventures, before I gave them away too. You’ll notice the second chick posing in front of the Twitter main page. That’s because he’s a Twitter bird! If you’re a Twitter fan too, hop over and follow me, then knit yourself a few blue egg cosies. They’ll keep your egg warm in the morning while you tweet, tweet, tweet.

Thank you so much for all your excellent suggestions regarding the postcards. The Random.org random number generator chose #1! So congratulations to LittleWit, I’ll be sending you a package very soon!

I was very interested to hear that CraftyCripple, Vanessa, and StephCat prefer notecards. Like Tekopp, I find postcards very versatile, easy to stick on the wall, or pop into a package without fiddling with envelopes. Not to mention cheaper to post! I can see the arguments for notecards though: they can be stood on a shelf, and they are more private. Either way, I love StephCat’s idea of using them in knitswaps. To this end, as Sarah suggested, the ‘nature’ cards will be grouped separately to the ‘knitting’ cards, and I will take care to make them “generic” enough to be useful for a variety of greetings.

Having said that, until I do some notecard-printing research, the first batch of cards in the shop will be postcards. I will try to get them up sometime next week. Thank you all once again for your comments!

The Houses pattern is nearing completion, so I thought I’d show you the little gift that will come with it. Printable pictures you can use as gift tags or for your own records. Just like the birdy labels I posted earlier, they have garment care symbols that you can fill in yourself.

The new website is also coming along, slowly and quietly like the snow, and a very cold summerhouse has decided my next project for me. Wait and see!

I have written up my solution to the little challenge I posed in Playing Houses as a PDF. I hope you enjoy it! It’s a very quick knit and I think quite sweet. If you think of any more solutions, please don’t hesitate to post them. I’d also love to hear how you get on with my explanation (it’s far easier to execute than to explain, believe me!).
