Meanwhile in Maine…

A site photo from the ground clearing company was sent to me this week and I was so excited to see where my future first nest is going! It made me reflect upon the joy of the process and not just the end result so I decided to try something a little different with my next design. Puddles and I invite you to join along in the process of designing a sweater worthy of Maine’s forecasted winters!

Terran MKAL beckons you forth armed with brioche stitches and stunning yarn into a deep exploration of the subterrain and terrain structures. This shawl is designed for brioche knitting loving terrans – an adventure to knit and thrill to wear! The pattern is live (on presale!) on Payhip, Ravelry, and Lovecrafts. The knitting starts October 7th. The fun happens in the Knit Eco Chic group on Slack!

Plunge Take Two

The photographic “vision” for “Take the Plunge” came early in the design process… unusually early! I hadn’t even finished designing some of the items when I knew exactly how I wanted to shoot the book. As the months rolled on and the samples were knit, washed, blocked, and ready to shoot – COVID, a gas shortage, and health issues (for both camera mom and me) kept hitting the snooze on our plans. I debated strongly about “just getting it done” locally as my Aunt and Uncle live 8 hours away (round trip). But that idea God gave me just wouldn’t shake free.

Let summer breezes waft through your stitches in Submerge. This asymmetrical drop shawl features alternating cables for a rippling effect through the design. As if lighting upon the water’s edge, butterfly dip stitches flutter through the I-cord Bind Off. To keep it simple for those wanting a shallow end dip into drops, only the drop stitches are purled making them easily recognizable throughout the work.
