For the upcoming spring and summer season 2013 I’m about to look for pattern inspirations – not primarily for sales patterns but for myself, things I would like to wear. I recently found this lovely piece on Pinterest,
it could easily be crochet, but would look lovely in either a soft silky laceweight yarn or – for autumn – in Rowan Kidsilk Haze or similar. But I’m still thinking about the flowers and how to include them, no clue yet.
And it doesn’t look like it’s going to stop within the next days. So what to do? Sock knitting, of course! Sorry, no pictures yet – night has fallen already and bulb light never seems to capture anything right…
My upcoming book, Beaded Shawls, is almost finished. I am currently fine tuning the last pattern and am going to upload the ebook tonight!
Another picture from the patterns:
The first few pictures from the upcoming book Beaded Shawls – thanks to my awesome test and sample knitters!
Sorry for being so quiet the last weeks. I experienced some kind of burn-out after family troubles.
But I am recovering steadily! Even my knitting mojo is back, so prepare for some updates on my upcoming book, Beaded Shawls.
I’m currently working on my next book which is going to feature beaded knitting, especially shawls. Want to peek? The first design is online, it is called Susanne. You can view and buy the pattern on Ravelry.
Want to know what my book Shawl Design in Plain English will look like? A preview including a full table of contents in plain text and as PDF as well as a pattern preview can be found on my website.
Three out of nine sample shawls have arrived at my door, one is blocking at the moment, another one (the lace crescent) is still in progress.
Here’s a group shot of four of them.
I have got this beauty on the needles right now: the pattern is called Persia Goes Green. It is one of the example patterns from my upcoming book, a rectangular stole worked in two halves from the center outwards.
I just uploaded a draft of the table of contents for my upcoming book on shawl design. You can download the PDF here: Shawl_Design_TOC
