Fun times in my Etsy shop

I hope you all had a restful long weekend. I was so excited last week about my patterns coming out in the Knitscene Accessories 2012 that I forgot to mention that some of the items I made for the craft fair are now available in my Etsy shop. Drum roll please!

The first up is this Skinny Drop Stitch scarf that I knit in Malabrigo Silky Merino, Viena colorway. I love this pattern so much that I've knit 3 more since this one. I haven't had the chance to block and photograph the other 3, but when I do, I'll make sure to share them with you. It's now up in my Etsy shop here.  The Viena colorway I used in this scarf is one of my absolute favorites, as the brown, yellow and orange colors just make a very bold statement. As usual, thanks to Zeina Newman, my fabulous model, for her outstanding work.




These next two scarves are knit from my Colliding Stars pattern. I love this simple pattern, and the Classic Elite Waterlily yarn is a dream to work with. As the pattern is so simple, the scarves work up very quickly.

The first one is in a cream/natural colorway. It's available in my Etsy shop here.



The second scarf is in a light green colorway and is also available in my Etsy shop here.



Ah my lovelies! I'm so excited when I get to post about pretty finished objects. Have a great rest of the week!

A new free pattern: Wrapped in Clouds Shawl/Scarf v1

Today I have a new pattern for all my knitters out there. It's a very simple pattern that creates a gorgeous, warm shawl, just in time for the cold weather. I actually finished this last year but only got the chance to write it up and put it up now. Here it is, the "Wrapped in Clouds Shawl/Scarf". Thanks to my friend Johanna P. for modeling this at work about a year ago!! The pattern has also been added to Ravelry here.

 Wrapped in Clouds Shawl/Scarf

A friend of mine saw a shawl similar to this somewhere and asked me to recreate it. I did my best to imitate the look of the shawl, but I cannot for sure say that it’s the same shawl. I thought I’d share the pattern with anyone who might be interested in a light but warm shawl made by striping thin cotton yarn with bulky single ply wool yarn. Because of the lightness of the bulky wool, this shawl can also be worn as a scarf by wrapping it around your neck. The finished product is classy and elegant for very little wor…

Nurse Appreciation Scarf 2 - For Sheila

Nurse Sheila was my night nurse, and she was extremely patient with me when I struggled to learn how to breastfeed Andrew while he was crying up a storm. She and nurse Della put up with my numerous requests for more and more ice. This scarf is for her.

My first knitting pattern - Dreams of Spring I

I came up with this pattern during the winter, when I was wishing for spring to come. I had bought some Shimmer yarn and mixed it with KnitPicks Shadow Lace yarn, so I wanted to make something nice with it. Here is what I came up with. It's pretty basic, but hey, it worked! I made two versions of it: one in green, and one in purple.
