Coming Soon to a Project Bag Near You

It’s been a busy, busy spring in my head design-wise — and my hands have been busy too! I haven’t knit many just-for-me projects in what seems like ages…. In fact I have so much going on, I had to break down and make a spreadsheet of all the design projects I have planned, submitted, on the needles, in need of photography, and off to the Tech Editor.

(Ok, if you know me, you know it wasn’t THAT big a sacrifice to make a spreadsheet …. )

I have a couple designs coming out Very Soon that I’d like to share with you, dear reader.  These are sneak peeks — full posts on each design will be forthcoming.


If you are in the Random Fandom yarn club, beware! Spoilers below (specifically, #3).

#1: Eponymous Mitts

A Hundred Ravens is debuting their new worsted-weight yarn Very Soon Now.  The yarn is called Epona (after the Celtic goddess of horses), and it is simply delightful.  I designed these mitts as a quick one-skein project — great for gifts, great for you :).

#2: Crosswind Sweater

Seriously, I love this sweater so much. Those cuffs! Swoon. This is my first garment design in Aesir, and I’m pleased to say I was 100% correct in thinking that it is awesome for sweaters. Also, I am Very Excited because KnitCrate will be selling this design as a kit! The KnitCrate kit comes with the pattern and the yarn you need to complete your very own Crosswind.  Kate and I made three brand-new gorgeous colors for the kits — can’t wait to share them with you.

#3: Silvan Vinyard Shawlette

This is design features the June yarn-of-the-month for Random Fandom. Club members … look away if you don’t want to be spoiled! 🙂 The shawlette is mostly garter, with a leafy edge that makes the colors sing.  This is those any-yarn, any-amount-of-yarn designs — just use the right needles, and keep knitting until you run out of yarn.

  1. Hello it’s the anal proofreader. Check the second sentence in the Crosswind paragraph. Should be pleased and looks like words are missing at the end of that sentence – I knew it (would be) awesome …
