I have a new pattern being tested right now that should be published in 1-2 weeks, It’s a design for sock yarn – my favourite medium – and uses about 1.4 skeins of sock yarn. I designed it for yarns with long colour repeats, such as Schoppelwolle Zauberball or Knit Picks Chroma.
Here’s a little teaser… 🙂
I just finished a pair of socks for my 7-year old. This was long overdue since the first sock was ready back in June, yes, June! Anyway, the sweet boy was patient and was very pleased today to finally have a complete pair.
I knit a pair of Hiss, using some leftover Wollmeise for the toe, a Regia cotton blend for the heel and a standard Regia sock yarn for the ribbing. The foot and leg is made in yummy Knit Picks Stroll Multi, I love this colour!
But, enough talk, here are a few pictures.
I decided to sell 4 of my shawl patterns as a set, The Shawl Collection. It is composed of the Ederra Shawlette, the Sunkissed Shawl, Twirly Wrap and the Agate Capelet.
The set costs $10.00
I’m delighted to have my third pattern published on Knit Picks as part of their Independent Designer Program! 😀
Pattern can be found here and more details are available here.
Sunkissed is a bright and happy garter stitch shawl knit in two colours with lace sections that grow bigger as the shawl grows and a simple picot edging.The simple lace pattern makes it ideal for new knitters.
It can easily be made smaller or larger by doing more or less lace sections but remember that the given yardage is for the pattern as shown here.

I just finished knitting my shawl, which is now named Sunkissed, somehow it just seems like the appropriate name. It’s just off the needles, so is still unblocked and is modeled by my – very happy looking – 5-year old! 😉 So, obviously, it’s too big for him!
Here are a few pictures, it will now be tested and should be published in about 10 days.
I’m progressing on my shawl and I like it so far. I’m still unsure what the edge will look like, one certainty only is that it will be in yellow!
