That last bit is not currently an option. And hopefully won’t be for a good long time to come.
Given that there are only so many hours in a day, and I already work most of them, regular blogging has unfortunately gone the way of the dodo. That said, otherwise ignoring the fact that it’s been 3½ months since I last posted, I am here today to share with you my latest two releases: Lalique and North Coast.
Yes, you’re right, you’ve seen Lalique before. It was part of The Sanguine Gryphon’s Spring 2011 Collection. I wasn’t counting on having the pattern back so soon, but when they broke up the business, the kind ladies at The Sanguine Gryphon decided to return printing rights to all their designers early. I took the pattern I did for them, added three sizes to it, and had it tech edited again. The pattern is currently being printed, so will be available to shops soon. In the meantime, if you like you can purchase it in pdf format.
I’ve wanted to design something with the spectacular print of the wave stitch since I first saw it, years ago. North Coast, a crescent-shaped shawl, is what I finally came up with. The border is knit first, starting and ending with a small number of stitches, then the garter stitch short rows are added to make it into it’s pleasing crescent shape. Because of space considerations, there are only charted stitch instructions for this one. This pattern also is currently in my printer’s hands, but it can be purchased at Patternfish.
Because I know myself, I know I won’t type up a separate blog entry for it when it’s done, so I’m giving you this little teaser now. Not a bit lace, and not currently available for sale anywhere (but it will be soon), this little sweater knit up in nothing flat with a lovely tweed yarn I already had that wondered what it wanted to be for ages. Apparently, it wanted to be a simple little pullover with a playful v-neck, it just took me a while to hear what it was saying. It’s currently being printed, too, and will be available everywhere soon.
