Thermal Lift

Lindsay Lewchuk 2016 New Releases, Cowls, Men, Patterns

Soar on the wings of an eagle! As I watched the eagles soar in the vast expanse between the two mountain peaks outside my window, I reflected on Isaiah 40.

The solid background accents the elegant grace of an eagle in flight.

Eastern Continental Divide

Lindsay Lewchuk 2016 New Releases, Cowls, Men, Patterns

Twisting along the Appalachian Trail and passing not far from my home, the invisible line known as the Eastern Continental Divide diverts waters on the East to the Atlantic Ocean and on the West to the Gulf of Mexico.

Black Willow Cowl & Scarf

Lindsay Lewchuk Cowls, Men, Patterns, Scarves

Recuperating after a treatment, I looked out the window and became enthralled with a majestic old black willow tree. The textures in the bark and the magnitude of the trunk drew me in. Determined to capture and recreate what I saw in yarn, I created 6 mini design elements, which I then mixed and mingled on the knitting needles until the texture evoked that same majesty as the magnificent specimen God placed in front of me. As a final nod to the sparkling sunset haloing the massive tree, beads were added to the edges and cables. 2014 Pattern Update: Black Willow is back!!
