Fuyugaki

I am looking for test knitters for my new design Fuyugaki.
Fuyugaki is fuyu persimmon in Japanese.
I would like to publish this design just after the New Year, so you have about a month for this test knit.
The design comes in 2 options: single color and two colors. I will be knitting a 2 color option myself too in Baah Yarn La Jolla as soon as my yarn comes in).
The instructions are both, charted and written. I need test knitters to test both versions of instructions as well as single and 2 color shawl versions. Please send me a message on Ravelry if your are interested. When replying, please let me know what combination you would like to test.
Test knitting thread in my group is here:

Bordertown again :-)

Dear Blog, 
After some traveling, jet lag and a bad cold, I am back!
To start with, my 3rd Bordertown shawl. I gifted this shawl and the purple one I made earlier to my friends. They loved it and that makes me very happy

Raava



My new design, Raava hat and scarf patterns are now live! You can find them here: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/sources/raava

Raava is a spirit of peace and light on “The legend of Korra” series that I love to watch with my kids.
Raava scarf is knitted in a simple leaf and zigzag motif. This design is modular and you can customize your scarf by knitting any of the pattern segments as many times as you wish and by knitting them in a different order. All segments are interchangeable and can be moved around without affecting the flow of the pattern. Knitted in aran weight, this would make a great quick project in your favorite yarn. 
 Raava hat is knitted in a simple leaf motif with a twisted stitches brim. The hat is knitted in the round and takes just 110 yards of aran weight yarn to complete for an adult size. This is fast and easy project that can be done in a day. Enjoy!




e-book for Raava scarf and hat set will be on sale for $4.00 until the end of the day PST on Wednesday October 15. After that the e-book will be sold for $6.00 and each individual pattern for $4.00.





The whole set takes just under 3 skeins of Pigeonroof Studios BACCHUS yarn. Knitted in aran weight, this would make a great quick project just in time for the holiday gift knitting.


Happy knitting,
Diana

San Diego Yarn Crawl

I had such fun day today. San Diego Yarn Crawl is going on this weekend. My friend JoKaren (h20paws on Ravelry)and me went to the Needlecraft Cottage yarn shop. We met lovely Mira Cole, the owner of Baah Yarns and Liz Walters, the owner of Needlecraft Cottage. I bought some wonderful yarn and could not help myself to stay on budget :-) I will be working on a new design for Baah yarns with their new yarn Baah Aspen. It is so so soft and silky in most beautiful persimmon color.
In the picture me, Mira (in the middle) and Liz. 


Here are me and JoKaren with some of our yarn ;-) 


and to finish off fabulous outing me and JoKaren when for lunch :-)

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend too :)
Happy knitting,
