Aurum

My latest design Aurum is now available as a kit exclusively with Wooly Wonka Fibers here. This design was inspired by a good friend who is soon to be getting hitched. I wanted to knit her something special and came up with this lace and cable shawlette.Aurum is a crescent shaped shawl that is knitted from the bottom up using short rows. The main motif involves both a simple lace and cable design. The cable design is meant to be done without a cable needle, tutorials on this method can be found at the end of the pattern. It is finished with an I-cord BO. It will be offered on it own starting in Sept 2011 here.

Kobenhavn

My newest shawl pattern Kobenhavn is up! It can be purchased here from Knit Picks.Kobenhavn is a reversible triangular shawlette or shawl. The construction of this shawl is non-traditional. The shawl is CO at one end of the garter stitch triangle, increased to the desired size then decreased forming the triangular basis. Stitches are then picked up along the sides of the triangle, and a feather & fan chart is knitted top down. The shawl finishes with a knitted on edging.

It is shown here in KP Shimmer above, and KP Stroll Tonal below. The pattern is written for 2 sizes, but is easily customizable.

Socks, Shawls, and Smitten

Well I have been knitting up a storm. I finished my Kobenhavn sample, and the pattern is soon to be release on KP.

Socks to be gifted

I also made a pair of Kjærlighetsvotter or Lover's mittens for a wedding present. Aren't they great! So that you and your sweetie can hold hands in the mitten. I think I will write up another version of these that are slightly less traditional.


I tested out this lovely blouse and am starting on another test.

I have also finished testing my 3rd shawl design, but it is being kept secret for the time being. =)
