I've been a bit quiet here on the baa baa blog lately but, rest assured, there is all KINDS of knitting going on behind the scenes, in preparation for the most fibre-tastic Fall ever!
Oh, btw, guess who's going to be in a book this Fall? Eeeeekkk, it's me! More details on that bit of knitty excitement are still to come, but for now I've been sworn to secrecy.
In the meantime, not only have I been working fast and furiously to create a fully stocked online store (yes, that's the elm road hat above--in 5 fantastic Fall colours), but I've also been working against three summer submission deadlines, July 15th, August 9th, and August 15th.
Thankfully, I've already met the July 15th book deadline, but two more ahhh-mazing opportunities are still in front of me, keeping me on my toes...and awake at night! The "lazy" days of summer are anything but lazy when you're a knitwear designer, and Fall just can't come fast enough when you're in the business of creating warm wooly things!
Hello & Welcome!
I'm Alexis, the knitter/designer behind cold comfort knits. My favourite animal is a sheep (obvi). Second in line? Alpacas. But not llamas--those guys are mean! As for house pets? I'm a cat person, 100%. Other things to know about me? My primary knitting fuel is vanilla-hazelnut coffee. And my inner child is actually more of an inner senior-citizen. I'm an old fogey at heart. Nice to meet you! Happy knitting!
