New Additions to the Website

Pyramid Blanket

Lucy added several new items to the website last month!
Her beautiful centre-out double-knit Pyramid Blanket was inspired by the lovely sets of gradient dyed Casbah yarns created by Handmaiden in Halifax. The workshop-in-a-pattern features a full written pattern with photos, Stitch-Maps charts, diagrams and fourteen video links.

Lucy also added an altogether different type of pattern to the website in June: her original rug designs are available for purchase at the website now! Hand-drawn on primitive linen with sewn raw edges, these patterns will keep the creative juices flowing!

And finally, we have added another pattern designed by our creative friend Julia Watt! The Snaking Cables Sweater is a seam-free, top-down sweater featuring an intricate, all-over cable pattern with integrated bust and hip darts to flatter the fuller figure.

Check them out: your summer project awaits!

Website Hint:

QR code For some high-tech fun, check out the latest addition to the Notebook tabs: QR Codes. Generate a knitting pattern for a QR Code that can be read by a smartphone. Deliver a link or a personal message. (Be warned, the longer the message, the more complex the chart.) How about "I love you" on a scarf? Or "I am a geek!" on an iPad case?
