Here is something new from me in the pages of
Vogue Knitting's, The Ultimate Hat Book.

This was a fun one to design! As you may know, I love blue, so when the little package came in the mail from Soho Publishing with 2 blues, I was delighted. I am honored to have one of my designs in this book with so many other talented people.

Coming soon...

My adventures at the Nordic Knitting Conference (long overdue!)

I just returned from the Nordic Knitting Conference (up for discussion later) to find this!

This is my new design featured in One + One: Hats by Iris Schreier. It is called the Triangular Wedge Hat and is made from 2 skeins of the decadent and delightful Artyarns Cashmere 5 in 2 different colors. I am so excited to be a part of this book and can't wait to see my copy when it arrives.

You can also see more pictures here, here and here.

Back to The Regularly Scheduled Program

Comments: 1
The days are getting shorter and the nights colder and the knitting from the Stricken-zimmer is calling to me.

Things have changed a bit and bluegirl has been taking a rest as may have been noticed by the lack of posting here. I have been busy taking care of my back, which has been giving me fits for some time and doing this. It has been busy, but I am missing my needles and missing designing.

I do have a couple of things to share though over the next few posts. I managed to finish a couple of new projects and had a new pattern published in a book a while ago that I never shared.

When I finished designing this hat, I borrowed a friend's baby to take pictures and now cannot find them. I think they must have been deleted from the camera. This hat is so cute on and I wish I had the photos to share!

I do have some photos of new knits that I finished this summer and will share those soon.

I hope everyone had a fun summer! Now back to the regularly scheduled program.

Back In Action

Comments: 2
After a wonderful Holiday Season with family and friends, I am back in action and ready to share some new knitting!

Last year, I did some design work for Nature's Luxury and now I can share it with you! These mittens and leg cuffs are knit with Foxen Sheep from Nature's Luxury. This yarn is truly a unique wool in a beautiful array of colors. Clara Parks did a fantastic review of this yarn, which is worth the read.









The pattern can be found for sale here and there is also a kit that can be purchased with the yarn here.
Happy Knitting and Happy New Year!

This is a cabley, bobbly hat that I designed for the 60 More Quick Knits book. It is knit from Cascade 220 Sport. I love bobbles!

This is also New!

This hat and sweater set is featured in Knit Simple Magazine, Holiday 2011.

So, that's what's new for now. I need to get out and get some pictures of some other things that are new. I have been busy finishing a bunch of my languishing projects and it feels great!
