Parallel Universe pattern and Knit-Along

I am very excited to share with you my latest design called Parallel Universe.
Parallel Universe is an airy and light scarf. The striking lines of lace and reverse stockinette stitch make for a very engaging pattern that will keep you interested all the way to the last stitch. The scarf only takes 1 skein of fingering weight yarn and is a fast and enjoyable knit.  



I will be hosting a knit-a-long for the Parallel Universe scarf in Sunny with a Chance of Knitting group. I hope you will join us and knit Parallel Universe just in time for the coming Spring :-) The thread for KAL is here:
The Parallel Universe scarf pattern is now published on Ravelry and can be found here:

 The pattern is 25% off ($4.50) until the KAL starts on February 27. After that the pattern will be sold at it regular price of $6.00. You can join the KAL at any time, but you need to finish the shawl and post your pictures by the KAL finish day of March 31 in order to qualify for prizes. 







Happy knitting,
Diana

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:
