I don't know if you remember sometime during this year when I mentioned that I had a few secret projects I couldn't talk about for a while. Well...one of them is out now so I can spill the beans. I got a pattern published in Interweave Knits magazine, one of the premier knitting magazines around! I'm so excited. They put up the preview of the patterns last week Friday so I tweeted about it and even put it on my Facebook page, but I thought it fitting to put it up on my blog today. My pattern is the Bobble and Eyelet Cowl, knit in Blue Sky Alpacas Bulky yarn, on US #15 needles (the yarn is a dream to knit with, by the way). It's a very quick knit, creating a super chunky scarf (that can even work as a wrap, see the pictures), and the bobbles and eyelets allow you to close the scarf, making it a chunky cowl/infinity scarf. Below are some of the pictures from the magazine. (PS: The actual color of the scarf can be seen in the magazine pictures. Mine were washed out by the sunlight, making the yarn look lighter than it was.)
You can pick up a copy of the magazine at your Local Yarn Store or at Michaels', Joann Fabric stores, Safeway, Barnes and Noble, and most stores that sell craft magazines.
Here are a few pictures I took of my MIL in the scarf before I sent it in to the magazine.
Woohoo!! I have more secret projects in the works, but this is the first one out, and I just had to share with you all. Thank you for following my blog, and supporting my creativity.
