Guest Post by Kirsten of KleverKnits – A Happy Announcement!

Today we’ve got a special post by Kirsten Singer of KleverKnits announcing a very special project! 

……………………………………………

I’m very excited to be guest posting on Holly’s blog, and to be able to announce such a great joint project is very cool!
The two of us are putting together an e-book of several designs meant to keep you warm this winter, and into spring.  At first we took one concept – Chevrons – and thought it would be interesting to see how two designers would interpret this theme.  But of course, we felt one design wasn’t enough, so we quickly added two more: slipped stitches and color work.

I don’t want to tease too much, but the color work designs couldn’t be coming at a better time, it seems that color work is on the bucket list for a lot of knitters this year.   There are posts on Karen Templer’s blog for mosaic knitting, one of which highlights a spread in Vogue Knitting’s new Fall & Winter Issue.  Plus there are a slew of samplers being sold, perfect for quick Fair Isle projects (check out Knit Pick’s sampler deals for Palette)League
The first pattern we will be launching will be the chevron-themed set this Wednesday.  When I first started thinking of ideas for this theme, I definitely got way ahead of myself.  I was struggling trying to come up with a way to make chevrons somehow different.  And then I realized that I needed to embrace the pattern’s simplicity: very graphic lines could be easily juxtaposed with soft and muted colors, knit with a thick yarn at a large gauge.  And after several swatches and a visit to my LYS, Still Water was born.

I know I can’t wait to share everything in this collaboration!
