New Ravelry Group

Hi All!

I just wanted to let you all know about a new Ravelry Group, The Gingerbread House.  It is a group for anyone working on any one of my designs.

This month, we are featuring a Gingerbread Hat knit a-long and will be starting a Dry Falls knit a-long beginning December 1.  If you are interested in either one of these, please visit my Rav group here.

Knitting Pattern Dry Falls Shawl

This is the worsted version of my Dry Falls pattern...so much larger, more of a shawl than a shawlette.

Merry Gift - A - Long

Well, my friends, gift making has begun in earnest.  I have spent the last couple of months working on shawl patterns and now find myself mixing in the annual Christmas/Birthday gift making with my design business.  Works out nicely when the designs can be gifted.....

Becky loved it and I think it came out well! It is a one skein project using Malabrigo Worsted or you can use Manos Del Uruguay Maxima.  Either way, the result is lovely....and warm!  The pattern should be available by the end of next week here, and on Ravelry. I'll keep you posted!

Next, I am working on a Crochet Hat for Emma's best friend, Esther.   I'll be using these lovely African Flower hexagons. You can find the pattern for these, here.

Not joining as I go...I'd much rather seam these into the shape I want for the hat...something fitted, I think!

I'm also working on a couple pairs of socks for Mom and Hubby, both DK, so no biggie. Should get them done with no problem.  And a two-needle hat is in the works for Dad and David, which may end up being a free pattern, if everything works out!

For now, I'll get back to my stitchin' !

Gift Shawl

This is a shawlette I recently completed for my sister, Becky.  Her birthday came Saturday, and I thought the blue in this Malabrigo Worsted was a perfect match for her eyes....

I love the color and the way the garter stitch waves at the edge of the horseshoe lace. I do think it needs a stretchy bind-off, so I will be adding that to the pattern. The edging is a faroese version of horseshoe lace, and I've been wanting to try it for some time. The Faroes would knit the lace in all garter, but I like it in stockinette too, so that's what I did. I'll be making my next one from Manos Del Uruguay Maxima, I think.  Also very pretty and very similar to the Malabrigo, but, whichever you choose, this is a one skein project, my friends!! I love those things, as Junie B. would say;-) That means this would make a great gift for someone.  So I will be writing this up and posting it in my shop. It will be available soon, so look for it.

Yarn: Malabrigo Worsted, Kettle dyed merino wool, 215yds
Needles: Size 7 (4.5mm)
Size: 50" span and 10" at widest point.
