New E-book: Stormbreak

I just released a new little collection of designs named Stormbreak, all using wonderful yarns from Quince and Co. The knits are worked in a gray as the main color with details in one or two other colors.

The 7 patterns in Stormbreak are: an open cardigan with pockets and a big collar, a quick knit bulky cardigan with 3 buttons at the top and a little colorwork detail, a short sleeve scoop neck tunic with simple cables, a hat with a rib and lace brim, a quick, simple textured bulky cowl, a wrap that may be worn as a cowl, hood, or pulled down over the shoulders, and a pair of fingerless mitts with long cuffs and lace panels.

New Pattern: Meridian

And a second pattern release this week, Meridian

           DSC_4705          DSC_4889

pocket detail


Meridian is a cozy, easy to wear cardigan knitted in the incredibly soft and quick to knit Quince and Co.’s Osprey. It is worked in one piece from the top down.
Meridian is cast on at the top of the back of the collar and this part of the collar is worked in Double Moss St to the neck. Then the yoke shaping and body pattern stitches begin and stitches for the front collar sections are cast on and the sweater is continued in one piece (except for the pockets). Once the body is complete, the CO edges of the front collar sections are seamed to the sides of the back collar section.

Zealand Falls

I am going hiking for a few days next week and one of the stops is called Zealand Falls, with the way the worked in collar gently falls down the fronts I thought it was a good name for this piece too:)

Zealand Falls is knit from the bottom up, split for the armholes, the collar is continued after the shoulders and is sewn along the back neck. A quick decrease row forms a pretty gather at the back of the collar. The sleeves are worked by picking up stitches, knitting short row sleeve caps and then working down in the round.

Here are photos of my sweater named Zealand Falls and after my trip I will post some pics of the place it is named after-

The Shepard and The Shearer 2014

The Shepherd and Shearer is such a wonderful project and I am delighted to get to be part of it this year!

Here is a link to more info about this this annual project and how it began-

And a link to how to purchase this years kits-

The design began when I received this beautiful yarn-



I tend to find the most inspiration for designs from the yarn itself. After much swatching and then sending a few design ideas over, this was cable pattern that I used in my design.


The center cable reminds me of twisting ivy that climbs along the brick wall next to my house.


The outer cables are reminiscent of the tops of the andromeda plant in my backyard.


The yarn is such a delight to knit with that my progress on this design has moved quickly! Here are some in progress shots-




Just a sleeve and pocket linings to go! I can’t wait to get to wear this one!

AND I am having a 20% off sale on all items in my Ravelry store, just use the code-  sale

Sale begins now and ends Friday, May 30th, 2014 at midnight EST.

All the best,
