Finally Can Spill the Beans - Sort Of

Do you subscribe to the Knitting Daily emails? Did you happen to notice anything about the email that went out today about the next issue of Knitscene? I'll give you a clue, it's the last headline on the cover.

I've been dying to share this news with everyone since I was contacted by Lisa Shroyer way back before Thanksgiving, but I figured I'd keep it mum until the issue was about ready to go live. So I finally feel I can spill the beans! I am the featured designer for the Fall/Winter issue of Knitscene!

For the issue, I had to design a mini collection of 4 sweaters and was interviewed for a little article about me and my designs. The preview still won't be up for a few weeks though, so can't quite spill all the beans yet! I will tell you that if you got the Knitting Daily email, one of my designs was at the bottom of the page: a grey doleman pullover. The model is wearing a yellow long sleeve t-shirt underneath.

Preview goes live the week of July 21st and it should be in knitting shops and newsstands the same week. So keep your eyes peeled!

A Proper Photo Shoot

I took advantage of the small glimmer of sunlight we had on Saturday night to finally have a proper photo shoot for my Desert Sun shawl. I really, really, really love the way it turned out and have worn it at least once a week since I finished it up. Luckily (or unluckily) it has been very nice shawl weather.

I've also been working on a little shawl design of my own. More details to come!

It's Done!

My Desert Sun shawl is finally done! I cast on way back in November of last year and had to put it down for awhile, but it's finally finished. [Details on Ravelry]




This shawl tested my patience, but I think the result was worth it. I dropped stitches at least twice on one of the beginning stitch patterns and had to rip back about 10 - 15 rows each time. Then when I was nearing the end, I was afraid that it would not be large enough. Then I was not sure I liked the hand dyed yarn colors with the stitch pattern.

But in the end all was well and I really, really love it. With the nippy mornings we've been having lately, I might even get to press it into service before the fall!
