A Visual Pattern Preview and Giveaway

Hillside Blooms is knit up in a stunningly beautiful hand-dyed yarn. The perfect balance of lace and texture, along with gentle curving lines, really brings this design together. Stay tuned for this shawlette knitting pattern (which I LOVE to wear as a scarf)! (NOW Available - the #210 Hillside Blooms Shawlette)


the image above.

A bold heart is the centerpiece of this quick knit! A departure from my usual designs, but this one was so fun and quick (took me just over an hour to knit one hat!) AND I learned a fabulous technique for working Intarsia in the round that was so easy! PLUS, I made this matched set (one for DH) with just 1 skein of each color. Woohoo! [NOTE - This pattern has been released: #209 Big-Hearted Hat]Big_Heart3_500

the hat image above.

There are some lace patterns that practically beg to be worked up in a delicate mohair silk. This was definitely one of them. The result is a very feminine, flowy scarf that is super budget-friendly and a great travel project! I'm almost finished knitting this one-ball scarf and will begin writing it up very soon! (NOW available - the #211 Chalice One-Ball Scarf)
