April 2019 New and Noteworthy

Wooly Wonka Fibers

Hello friends! It’s getting to be spring here in the Northern hemisphere, and I’m happy to let you know of a few items of note as we head into the warmer months.

I have a new design release for the Celtic Collection of garments I’ve been working on this year: Ostara. This women’s vest features traditional fair-isle colorwork patterning, as well as a stylized iris motif at the border. It is knit in the round with steeks at the V-neckline and armholes.

It’s shown here in Finullgarn fingering-weight wool (available from The Yarn Guys/Wall of Yarn) and it’s available right now as a PDF download on Ravelry.

Also released in the last month or so is a new pair of lace socks - Fern. These are sized for a ladies’ foot and feature a delicate fern front lace pattern on the front and back of the leg, which continues down onto the foot. The pattern contains 3 sizes for women, and can be knit with one skein of most sock-weight yarn put-ups. It’s shown here in the Willow colorway on Rhiannon Sock.

Finally, save the date(s)! I’ll be vending and teaching at Stitches Midwest the first weekend in August!

I’ll be teaching a top-down yoke sweater customization class, as well as a colorwork color palette inspiration class. You can find information on these (and all the great classes available from the Stitches Events folks) on the XRX website here. Hope to see you there!

March 2019 New and Noteworthy

Wooly Wonka Fibers

Thank you to everyone who came out to Stitches West, took classes, bought yarn, said hello and generally made that wild and crazy show a little bit more fun! There have been tons of pattern releases over the last several months, so I’ll highlight a few here for you, but as always, any new releases can be found on my Ravelry pattern listing page.

I released Spring Frost, the Imbolc-themed sweater for my Celtic garment collection in 2019. This is a ladies’ sweater knit in fingering-weight yarn with a pretty snowflake pattern at the yoke and on the sleeves, interspersed with stripes. A great way to tackle a slightly more complex colorwork pattern, but not too difficult.

Also of note, The Viking Collection has been released. This 7-piece set features 2 men’s/unisex sweaters, 1 hat, 1 shawl and 3 women’s sweaters, all themed on various Viking-ish things. I’m particularly fond of Astrid, which I had on in the booth on Sunday, if you stopped by.

As well as Brynhild, which is shown here in Nimue Sock in the Gray Goose colorway. This pretty pullover has a scooped neckline and waist shaping incorporated into the twisted stitch patterns of the body. The sleeves feature a bit of a bell-sleeve shape for an extra feminine detail at the cuffs.

I’ll be teaching at The Yarn Guys retreat in Ames, Iowa, next month, and then will head to Stitches Midwest in August if you are looking for a venue I’ll be attending.

Happy knitting!
