This January the editor of Patternfish newsletter became intrigued with a new technique I’m developing – a new way of putting knit and purl rows together. I’ve written three patterns using this technique and she featured them in the newsletter.
Take a look! (Scroll down the newsletter a bit to find me)
Gayle found my knitted brass piece on my blog and included that in the bottom of the newsletter too.
I love days like this!
The most current pattern I’ve written using this technique is called Anna Dorothy – in honor of my maternal grandmother.
I adored my Grandma, Dorothy, and after she died we found her birth certificate: she was christened Anna Dorothy. Knowing this makes me miss her more.
This shawl is for you Grandma!
I just finished another Meghan’s Wrap. It is knit in Sockittome (brown) from Cherry Tree Hill and the white is a yarn is from Yarn2Dye4.
The high contrast of these colors shows off the fun shapes of the blocks of color.
The pattern is easy to knit and fast! It takes a bit of getting used to knitting sock yarn on size US 10 1/2 needles and moves along quickly once you do. A nice drape results from such open knitting
Instead of adding the beads up the fringe as I did on my first wrap, I put three beads on the end of each fringe.
I’ve got the van loaded up and ready to drive the the Washington County Fairgrounds to set up my booth for Shepherd’s Harvest.
I’ll be vending my hand knitting patterns: Here is a photo of Hannah wearing the “Wrapped in Camel” shawl.
This pattern is hot of the press and ready for you to pick up! In case you can’t make it to Shepherd’s Harvest it is also for sale on <a href=”buy now“>Ravelry.
Stop by to see me if you can!
