New patterns for 2010...

Here are two of five new free patterns that I have ready for release. My favorite is the "Eureka! Cowl." A quick and fun little knit that only uses one skein of our self-striping Hand Picked recycled silk yarn, "Stripe." It is knit in the round, with a chevron stitch pattern. The stripes follow the zig-zags for a really happy project. It fits all snuggly-cozy and looks great poking out of your winter coat. Alternately this same pattern could be knit 2-3 inches shorter in length for a head-band style headwarmer.

Next is "Ribs and Ribbons" a simple ribbed scarf that makes a statement with texture and color. The scarf is knit in an easy K2, P2 ribbing and fringed with our colorful Sari Ribbon. This one is knit in "Hand Picked: Sea"--both yarns can be seen here.

I have two more quick-knit scarves that will be ready soon, as well as little bag. Check back for more details.
And...because Konstantine said the photos looked super-imposed....yes, these really were taken out in the yard. Here's the proof. I put Wendy, my ever-ready model, on the kids' sled and dragged her down to the trees for a little photo shoot in the snow. She was a dear and didn't complain even once about the cold!
