Spring Blossoms Cowl – A Pattern Release!

Just as Kirsten said on Monday, I’m here to release a new pattern into the world!  It seems like it’s been FOR.EV.ER. since I’ve released a self-published pattern and I’m thrilled to be doing it again!!!IMG_6407

The Spring Blossoms Cowl is my interpretation of the Chevron theme we picked to kick off this collaboration.  I wanted to really highlight the ziggy-zaggy stitch pattern with some colorful stripes and texture.IMG_6502

It is begun like a triangular shawl and worked back and forth until it is joined in the round and finished like a cowl.IMG_6401

The Himalayan Trail by Bijou Basin is so soft and cushy to work with!  It comes in an awesome ranch of colors so I highly recommend making your own combination for your version of the cowl.IMG_5554

Making your own version of the cowl and posting a picture to this thread in my Ravelry Group is a good way to make sure you’re entered for the KAL prize package too!IMG_6486

The pattern is now available on Ravelry, Craftsy and Etsy for $5.00 or you can get your copy now!

WIP Wednesday: Another Chevron Bag

Welcome back to another WIP Wednesday!  Wanna participate?  Skip on over to Tami’s Blog to join the fun 😀

Ok, this week my WIP is another Chevron Bag because the first didn’t turn out the way I wanted it to.  Which I’m actually ok with, I’d much rather to it right and get what I want, so I don’t mind doing it again.  And, I want the pattern to be perfect too 🙂

new colors!

Because I used up about 4 different colors in the last bag and had to scour the stash for more wool, the color scheme on this version is totally different, which, again, I love.

using bigger needles too, much better drape

I’ve already used up….one…two…five balls of wool with version and I’m not even done yet!  It feels great to go into my little widget over there —> and lower the number of skeins in my stash 😀

What are you making this week?

WIP Wednesday: The Chevron Bag

Welcome back to another WIP Wednesday!  Want to share your own projects or see others’?  Check out Tami’s blog 😀

its a ziggy-and-a-zaggy

My WIP this week is a Chevron bag that I started last…..week sometime, I can’t remember exactly when.  I’m writing up the pattern, which is supposed to be a stash buster for my Yarn Diet hence all of the colors and textures of the wools.

to be felted...

I will be felting it whenever I finish the strap, sew it on, and get over to my laundry facilities.  The pattern is being written up now and will need some test knitters (so keep that in mind 😉 ).

What are you working on?
