Joyful Lace

So I know it's been ages since my last blog post. In between designing and knitting, life happens; I won't bore you all.

But in knitting news, I am excited to share with you that one of my designs is included in the newly released KnitPicks Joyful Lace Collection. This one has been in the works since its conception in June 2014. May I present to you: Dewdrop Paths. It's available in printed book, ebook, and individual PDF download format.

It's an honor to be included with such designers as Susanna IC and Stephannie Tallent. In fact, every pattern in this book is gorgeous! Have a look, I'm sure you'll find something you like. My design looks like one of the easier knits in the collection. I originally designed it to be a take-along project with a quickly-memorized stitch pattern. It truly turned out that way, and much of the prototype was knitted in waiting rooms and hospitals. I've made two of them so far.

KnitPicks chose a lovely dusky blue yarn for their sample shawl, but I've also made it in lavender and light brown. Delicate colors are a good fit for a light and airy accessory. Here's a photo of the lavender one:

You can see how the color changes the look of the design. I don't have any pictures of the brown one yet, but they should be posted on Ravelry eventually.

Happy knitting,
