Last week I shipped a lovely selection of Mybootee Babee DK Desert Thread in Moab Utah! Woo Hoo! So if you're in the neighborhood visiting or whatever you may be doing, you should stop in and check them out. I've been busily working on pattern layouts and boy let me tell you, graphic designers sure do a lot of work. So when you look at a magazine, a book, or a poster, especially one that you like and that is interesting, just remember, that it likely took someone hours or days, or even weeks to come up with something that is appealing. It's tougher than you'd think. Many of you know that I have been revising and redesigning layouts for my patterns for several weeks now, and after all this, I still only barely have a couple layouts that I am happy with. So I will continue on and am thoroughly enjoying all the learning that has taken place lately.

In addition, I want to introduce our new color line of Sock Yarn Solids. I have been obsessed with coming up with patterns that call for sock yarn that are not socks. And while that is still something I have in mind, I have discovered some new colors that I felt needed to be made into new Sock Yarn Solids. But this color line is not nearly complete. And as of now, I only have two dyed up. I expect to due more in the weeks to come and will likely share each one on our Facebook page. And if you haven't already discovered, we have a Facebook page, so like us or share us or whatever else you can do with us there.

Now without further adeiu here are the two newest colors in the Mybootee Family!

Now in spanish!

I just made a new friend in Spain! She has generously translated my Babee Chullo pattern into spanish and is also willing to answer questions about the translation and the pattern. Now I realize that mostly everyone reading this blog, speaks english because after all how could you read it unless you did. But I figure, since some of us are bilangual (me excluded), then it might be of interest.

The ulitmate goal is for me to publish all my patterns in translated languages so that more people can share in the fun, but this will take time. So anyone who is interested in translating some or all of my other patterns, and whom I can direct questions to, would be welcome. And I would obviously provide them with the patterns free of charge. If for some reason, they choose a pattern that is already offered for free, I would be happy to arrange some other type of trade.

I am very excited about this new adventure, and I hope to do my part in helping the fabulous english patterns reach a whole different group of knitters.

Incidentally for any designers who might be reading this, the Spanish patterns are far and few in between so if you speak spanish, that's a great way to share more of your work!
