I am excited to announce that I have a new design in yet
another of Iris Schreier's fantastic books.
One + One: Wraps, Cowls & Capelets: 29 Projects From
Just Two Skeins
I fell in love with the double
eyelet lace pattern a long time ago and thought it would be lovely in some of
Art Yarn's gorgeous and decadent yarns. The cowl is reversible and joins
together Beaded Ensemble and Cashmere Sock. While I was working up the pattern,
I did not want the knitting to end. These yarns are truly luscious to work with
and the desire to keep knitting with them is overwhelming! I also believe that
if you are going to have something around your neck that it should be as soft
as possible and what could be softer than cashmere and silk?
You can see all the other
designs from the book on Ravelry.
If you would like to win a
copy of the book, please leave a comment by 10/3/2014 3:00 pm EST. The winner
will be chosen by the random number generator and will be announced the next
day, so don't forget to check back!

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

This is my new design featured in One + One: Hats by Iris Schreier

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.

60 More Quick Baby Knits Photography by Jack Deutsch
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.

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

and there is also a kit that can be purchased with the yarn here
Happy Knitting and Happy New Year!
