Arcus is an unusually shaped shawl. I designed it especially for sock yarns with long colour repeats and these are the yarns, which will work best with this design. The top of the shawl is V shaped so that the sides will sit on the shoulders comfortably, without sliding down.

Needles: US6/4.0mm circular needle or size needles needed to obtain gauge

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 realised that I hadn’t posted in a little while…
Recently, I made 3 crochet projects, all tests for the designers. Actually, the first two are of the same pattern, except that I made a mistake in the diamond stitch in my first version and, therefore, redid it… It’s the Diamond Romance pattern.
My first version in Zauberball (with mistake)
My second version, with the correct pattern
My third project is a pair of Vanya Armlets (not published yet) by Rachel Petersen. I used Lana Grossa Qui and I love the end result
I finished my first pair ever of knee-high socks!
These will be part of a new pattern, with a simple toe-up knee-high sock pattern with heel flap and gusset. I will add three variations to the pattern, including this stripy version, a cable version I’m working on and a still undecided third variation.
Here are a few pictures of the finished pair.
I’m working on a new pattern, which will be for knee-high socks with a basic “recipe” for 3 women sizes and different options. This is the stripy option. I have finished one sock and am now working on the second one. The second option will include cables and the third one might have colourwork, not too sure yet. They are knit toe-up and include a gusset and heel flap.
I’m making these in 2 different colourways of Zauberball Crazy. I love the Zauberball! 🙂
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 posted about the two Zauberball I received the other day. I made my Agate Capelet for a friend with them and it’s now finished. I still need to take pictures of her wearing it, here are a few of it blocking. I really like how these two colours worked together, it is Schatten and Schoko-Creme.
