New patterns are up!

I just added my two newest patterns on Ravelry this morning.

Braided Cable Cowl:  This cowl knits up quicky in Ultra Alpaca and gives you a chance to show off pretty buttons!

Second is a squishy shawl in another bulky yarn – Loops & Threads Cozy Wool.  Inspired by the Outlander episode in my previous post.

I’ve got a lovely ruffled shawl, a set of mitts and a shawl with a scalloped edge and front ties going on the needles right now! More to come!

I’ve got several ideas floating around that I’m trying to design, inspired by the Outlander tv show on Starz.   I’ve got two shawls in the works – one is a basic bulky weight shawl.  I’m making it in a bulky wool/acrylic blend, but it is inspired by this particular picture:

The next shawl I’m working on came from a background character, but I really love the design. For this one, I’m using a 3ply yarn I recycled from an old wool sweater. So far it’s going well.  I hope to have these patterns up soon!

I need to get some pictures, but I’m currently working on a few projects. I need to hurry up and finish a Dahlia sweater for a friend – I just have the sleeves to finish. I’m doing a test knit with some handspun that I’m adoring.  I’m also working on Trousseau from Twist collective in an amazing gradient cotton.  I’ve got some other ideas floating around in my head that I need to get down on paper. One is inspired by the main big window at the new Center for Arts at Virginia Tech.   I have four patterns I need to get up for sale on Ravelry– two scarves, one round small shawl and one larger stole.
