The Sandpiper Socks feature the same stitch pattern that I developed for my Luidia hat only modified to use two colors of yarn and highlight crazy varigation. I wrote up a whole blog post on these socks so you can click through here to learn more.
I Can’t Control My Brain was designed as a companion piece for I Can’t Control My Fingers. Borrowing from the same Ramone’s song (I Wanna Be Sedated) it features the same super stretchy wobble rib texture pattern that is fast and easy to work. To maintain the pattern as far long as possible the crown decrease happens over only a few rows to create a clean finish. The super squooshy texture made me want a super big fold up brim and that worked great with the amazing sport weight Yellowstone yarn from Stitch Sprouts.
It seems that the winter is my season for designing unisex pieces and wouldn’t you if you had such a great live-in model? The Burly Cable Cowl is designed to pair perfectly with the new bulky weight yarn Burly from Anzula. The construction on this one is super fun and designed to avoid pesky things like provisional cast ons and grafting. The cable is worked in a strip side-to-side and then you pick up to knit in the round along one edge with a slight overlap that gives a faux button effect. When you sew on your buttons you close the flap and poof! you have a big squooshy cowl to keep you warm.
From the same collaboration that brought you BitterBlue comes my new gradient, beaded shawl Earthbound Misfit. With beautiful custom colorways from The Unique Sheep matched up with an assortment of matching beads from earthfaire you can create your own enveloping shawl of lace and color. The colors shown are available only in kit form through earthfaire.com. You begin at one small point and work in ever increasing rows through the gradient interspersed with bands of beaded lace. The size of the piece makes it endlessly versatile when it comes to styling.
