Okay, so I have not blogged in ages, but it has been a really busy spring! My self published book is getting so close to being done and I am really thrilled with how everything has gone. The title is Landing and it will have 8 top down sweaters by me and 4 accessories from guest designer friends. The print copies are on schedule to be available early Fall and I will be offering it for pre-order before then. But I promise I will write more about all that soon!
Now to catch up on new designs:
Reed is a top down pullover with a simple little lace panel up one side on the front and back and an offset patch pocket.
I also released a new double side cowl, one side is stockinette stitch in one color and the second side is a lace and twist cable pattern in a second color, it is named Rivulet.
This cowl comes with me everywhere!
Here are my 3 designs:
Julieta, an open cardigan with each side worked from sleeve cuff to center back and then joined with a 3 needle bind off. There are little shell details at the cuffs and a garter stitch collar.
Lavina is a lacy tee with fun “sleeve” details worked in beautiful Tern yarn. I am so happy with the way this one came out.
And the third is Brisha Shawl, a shawl worked from end to end with a garter stitch body and lace edging. The shaping takes place in the garter stitch section as to not interrupt the pretty lace pattern.

Thank you for visiting, it is back to work for me, I am slowly getting caught up and will be back to blogging more frequently!
All the best,
