I have had a busy year – family, health, designing – all have presented challenges and rewards. The biggest challenge has been to my time and time management. I am hoping for better this year!
One of the biggest changes and challenges has been the addition of a new designing outlet. I am now working with Selena Miskin of Wayfaring Yarns. We met last year at Rhinebeck and have hit it off both as friends and as designers. We are selling kits for some of our patterns through our website Sweater Sisters.
My first pattern for Sweater Sisters is being released tonight on Ravelry. And I am so excited to be sharing this with you! The pattern and kit will be available as well on the Sweater Sisters website!
Lumi is a hooded capelet. It is cabled with lace faggoting cables and regular cables, shaped to the neck and at the shoulders, sprinkled with beads and knit with mohair and silk! I am quite in love with this enchanting accessory! I hope that you will love it too!
Light and luminous this hooded capelet is the perfect topper for your coat on a cold day or better yet that beautiful evening dress that just needs a little something to keep you warm and beautiful. The open Faggotting Cable makes the basic cable stitch a little more elegant and adds to the ethereal effect of the silk mohair yarn. The Size 6/0 beads are scattered around the edge of the hood and placed on the first few rows of the Garter stitch edging, adding just the right amount of sparkle.
I am continuing to work with Buffalo Wool Co. That will never change. Their yarns continue to be endlessly inspiring! We have two new designs coming out at Stitches West! I also work full time at Mad About Ewe Fine Yarns!
I am still walking regularly and have the pictures to prove it – I must start blogging more regularly again. This year is starting out a little chaotic, but it is looking to calm down in the near future, cross your fingers for me!
