Sneak peak of my new shawl, called Lazy
Sunday. The pattern is currently being test knitted (more info in my
group on Ravelry) and will be published at the end of November. The
shawl is large, cozy and warm. Sideways construction creates broken
stripes effect and contrasts in texture and colors. I cannot wait for a
colder weather to wear it:-)
Raavais 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
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.
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 :-)

In light of the upcoming Autumn Tango KAL in The Yarn Attic group I have knitted a larger version of this pattern in thinner yarn than original. The pattern itself has undergone a major update. The update includes the following changes and additions:
1. Instructions on how to make a larger scarf in DK weight are available at the end of the pattern.
2. The middle joint of the scarf at Provisional CO now does not have one stitch offset as in the previous version of the pattern and aligns perfectly.
3. The number of pattern repeats in each direction of the scarf has been clarified with a different wording to avoid any confusion.
4. There were few typos for the 2nd half of the scarf BO which have been corrected now.
5. A picture of how to block side leaves has been added.
You still have time to join the KAL. The pattern is FREE when you register for the KAL in the KAL thread. There are prizes as well. You can join this KAL no later than
Sept 15, 2014 in order to qualify for prizes.
So many projects still waiting to be
photographed, to be written as patterns or both. Few of the projects
were done months ago and one more than a year ago. Sometimes life
interferes and the best of plans get put on hold. I am gradually working through all my projects and patterns. Casual Friday cardi pattern is in the works 1st.
Also, a new version of my Autumn Tango scarf in skinnier yarn is
completed and pattern will be updated very soon and just in time for Autumn Tango KAL over at The Yarn Attic group on Ravelry. Also, Bordertown pattern is coming next week ;-)
For the first time in 4 months I had any substantial free time to knit this past couple days. My Casual Friday cardigan is almost completed. I am very happy with how everything turned out, but the button band and will redo it. Pattern writing is next ;-)
While cardigan was blocking, I started a new design from Pigeonroof Studios Bacchus Aran. What a pleasure to knit with this yarn. It is really nice to knit with aran weight after several months of 4ply :-)
