Knit Now Issue 39

on September 17, 2014

Knit Now magazine issue 39 will be out on Thursday.

I have two of my original designs in this issue.
One is a little witch girl with a black cat.

And the other one is the teddy bear tape measure cover.

Remember this one? It has been ages since I submitted this pattern, and I was wondering what had happened to it.
It was a special request from the editor. They had a free tape measure gift for readers and wanted to offer yarn to knit a cover for it. Yes, it should be a knitting kit coming with this issue.

I have seen the photos added to my Ravelry page.

I thought knitting a cover of circle shape might be difficult. I have seen a lot of tape measure covers crocheted, but not knitted. Actually, this turn out to be a simple and easy project, and I think it is easier and quicker than making a cover with crochet. A knitted bow is attached to the tape end.

My boys used to love self-retracting tape measures when they were little. They have broken many, and I am still using a broken one. I finally get to have a new tape measure!

I hope you will enjoy my patterns.
