Summer Vanilla pattern available HERE at Ravelry – $6.50

I am very excited to announce that my Vanilla Pattern is now LIVE!  This was such a fun, fun, quick little knit!  It’s an easily memorized stitch pattern, garter with one row of lace, and no shaping, making for a great throw on over everything garment.

This oversized, lacey pullover is perfect for use as a cover up over your bathing suit on a beach day, or layer a brightly colored tank or blouse underneath for a more street appropriate look.

I think the part that I love the most about this top is the wide, low u-neck, and the fitted sleeves.  Perfectly comfortable to wear, and very light, being worked in linen.

Though, I might have to make another out of wool or alpaca for a light & warm fall sweater.  Perhaps in a rich burgundy color? (I can’t seem to get enough of that color right now!)

When I first started knitting this pullover, I had a grand design of 3 color changes and a buttoned back with a gently curved hem.  But the yarn did not like that idea at all and after weeks and several yarn shipments of trying to figure out a good color combination of 3 colors, all red, pink, or purple, I decided to listen to the yarn.  I must admit that I am very happy that I did.  I’m sticking to two colors, a rich burgundy/plum, and a soft mauve color.  This is going to be a great basic sweater for fall, and a very quick knit.  I’ve already completed the front and half of the back!

I’m really happy with the two-tone color block I’ve got going on now, and I’m excited to share once it’s complete!

Sadly, I may have to put this on hold for awhile, as I’ve just received my yarn for my submission for Knit Now’s Winter Issue, and I need to get started on that!

Also, this Saturday, I’ll be taking FO photos of my Vanilla Pullover design, so keep an eye out for that pattern launch next week!

For those of you that follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that I have had a very busy past few days, from traveling to LA to Nashville to Charleston, photographing one design and starting another, and working on finishing another.

First, I want to introduce Delicate Bones.  This was such a fun and quick little project, despite working the lace detail on the waist with Size 1 US needles (it goes quick I promise!)  I finished the top in two weeks, including having to knit one of the fronts twice!

Pattern is now available for sale on Ravelry!

Next up, I’ve started a design I am naming Chicago.  Not quite sure where I got the name inspiration, but somehow, for me, it suits.  This is going to be a crewneck pullover worked with horseshoe cables with Rowan Felted Tweed dk.  The only challenge so far in this design is knitting the 100+ stitches on Size 0 needles for the 1×1 ribbing, but luckily, I’m only calling for about an inch of it.

My Vanilla Pullover has been seamed, and I am ready to pick up the stitches around the armhole and work the sleeves.

Well, the back and front of my Vanilla pullover are in the process of being blocked.  Once the pieces are dry, I can seam and start knitting the sleeves.  I knew that the pieces would bias a little due to the stitch pattern, but once I got the wires in, everything looked great.  I am very excited for this linen top!

Managed to re-finish the Right Front of my Delicate Bones top over the weekend, and also got to make some good progress on my Vanilla Pullover.  I’m hoping to finish the back and have both front and back blocking by Wednesday evening, so keep your fingers crossed that I can stay on track!

Since Vanilla is close to being wrapped up, I’ve started swatching for two new pullovers:  English Roses and Chicago.

English Roses is a crew neck pullover with a buttoned back for a different look.  Three shades of Grignasco Loden are used for a color block effect reminiscent of roses in an English garden.

And last, but certainly not least, Chicago is a crew neck pullover with all over horseshoe cables, and I think this may become one of my favorite knits for fall.

I do have a few other design ideas in the works, that I’m hoping to submit for a few submission calls.  So fingers crossed on those!

On the Mat

I was so happy to finally have my Delicate Bones top blocking, until I noticed that the Left and Right fronts were each different lengths.  So now it’s back to knitting one of them over, all that work for a 2″ difference, sigh.

But I do have to say that despite the setback, I still really love the way the lace panels have turned out, and I’m particularly fond of the small details: the twisted…
