First, I wanted to let shoppers know that I will be away on holiday from May 8th through 20th. While the shop will be open during that time, I will not be able to fulfill any orders until I return home, so thank you in advance for your patience. Pattern downloads via Ravelry, however, are available 24/7, as always!
Next up, I was really pleased to be asked to design a pair of New Mexico themed socks using my Rhiannon Sock for the newest edition of Nomadic Knits.
The Arizona/New Mexico themed collection has lots of great patterns, and my Sabino socks are included in that group (see samples above). Knit using one skein of Copper Rivet, and 3 mini skeins of gradient blues, these are a fun way to tip your toes (pun intended!) into the stranded knitting pool. For this pattern, please see the edition 3 Ravelry page for this collection. If you'd like to order a yarn pack, please Contact Me and I'll be glad to get you taken care of.
Also new is the next piece in my Celtic garment collection - a vest themed for Beltane, or May Day. This unisex vest is knit using traditional Fair Isle stranded patterns, and is worked in 5 colors in Finullgarn wool. The hems and bands are worked in a corrugated ribbing, and the garment is constructed using steeks for the arm openings and V-neck. You can find the pattern here on Ravelry, available for immediate PDF download.
A reminder as well about some upcoming teaching dates for me:
August 2-4, 2019
SAVE THE DATE(S) - STITCHES MIDWEST
I'm teaching two 6-hour classes at Stitches Midwest this summer, and as well, just got notification that I will be also teaching at the brand-new Stitches Salt Lake City in early October! More details to come on that as I have them but I'm excited about this new event. I will, of course, also have yarn available in The Yarn Guys/Wall of Yarn booth spaces, as well as patterns and kits. You can find all the information about the Midwest event here and hope to see some of you there!
