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!

New Pattern Releases - Early December 2018

Wooly Wonka Fibers

I’ve got several new pattern releases to share with you for December - a few now and a couple others coming closer to the end of the month. Follow any of the links to find the Ravelry pattern page, where these patterns are available for download as a PDF.

First up is Summer End. This is a unisex pullover with just a bit of colorwork. It’s shown here in Rauma Finullgarn, but it can be knit with any fingering-weight yarn of your choosing. This is a great project if you are new to stranded knitting as it uses limited colors and no steeking necessary!

The next release is the Gorse shawl - the next installment in the Ogham pattern collection. This is a 2-skein project, worked in Nimue Sock and shown here in the Buttercup colorway. This long rectangular stole is knit from one short edge to the other, and features two lace patterns representing the thorny tips of the gorse branches, as well as the drooping yellow flower clusters of the plant.

Last but not least is the Calaveras shawl from designer Lori Law. This elongated triangular shawl with an interesting construction and beaded detail uses one skein of Nimue Sock. It is shown here in the colorway Spiced Apple, and was the kick-off pattern for the Celtic Year Shawl Club for the Samhain Festival.

New Pattern Release: Aspen Cowlette

Wooly Wonka Fibers

Just released to start June off on a bright note is the Aspen Cowlette.

This hybrid cowl and small shawl/shrug is worked with one skein of Nimue Sock (sample is shown here in the Dryad colorway).  It's cast on at the neckline and the first half is worked back and forth and shaped like a shawl.  Stitches are then joined in the round for the larger leaf-motif lace border, which is worked to the bottom hem like a cowl.

It can be worn loosely around the neck, like a cowl, or pulled down over the shoulders like a shawl/shrug.

Pattern is available via PDF download on Ravelry here.
