Introductory 25% off for the next 48hrs.

Pinkberry is an elegant crescent shawl that features combination of the simple garter stitch lace in the body and the little zigzag border. The shawl is accentuated by the picot bind off.
  • the shawl is completely reversible
  • there are no purl sts in this design ; -)
  • the top edging is extra stretchy, so there is no pooling after blocking
  • the CO/set-up is done in such a way, so there is no visible hump that sometimes can be seen in the shawls of this shape
  • instructions for an optional beaded picot BO are provided
Instructions are both, written and charted.













Happy knitting,
Diana

Another Friday.


My second Casual Friday cardigan was almost finished, but flu and pneumonia interfered and it took almost another month to finally finish the cardigan and prepare the pattern for the publication. 
The pattern will go live on Monday (PT). http://www.ravelry.com/projects/deenulya/another-friday

Something Cozy :-)


Throw/blanket for my son :-)
So happy to be using yarn from my stash bought in 2008!!! I do not know what I was thinking buying this color to knit myself something, but it is perfect for a 10 year old's throw :-)
I would love to make something cabled, but there is just not enough yarn for cables to get any good size for a cabled throw. Started with a different diamond pattern first, but my son said it looked too girly ;-) He liked the pattern I used for Gingembre mitts. It is simple, but looks great in aran weight and makes for a mindless TV knitting. 
Project can be found on Ravelry.





 Happy knitting,

Palessie and Afterglow Shawls.

Today I would like to share few of my projects/designs knitted few years back, but never photographed until recently :-)
One of them is Palsessie shawl. Knitted with ColourMart Silk 36/120nm DK wt., the shawl has amazing shine and drape. More details ont his project on Ravelry.




The second shawl I would like to show is Afterglow. This shawl is also knitted with ColourMart yarn, but this time it is ColourMart 18/52NM dk wt cotton/silk 50/50. Cotton adds crispier texture to the fabric while silk still gives plenty of drape. More on the project on Ravelry
