New Pattern — Leticia Cowl — and a Giveaway!

I released the Leticia Cowl this morning — the next installment in The Virescent Collection!  If you’ve already purchased the collection, look for an email or PM with instructions on getting the update.  Otherwise, this and all my other patterns (including the collection) are 20% off until the end of day on Saturday, 10/17!

It’s so much fun to do photo shoots at this stone amphitheater — plenty of shade, and the setting is just perfect for my “green theme”.



The cowl is wonderfully squishy and soft in Malabrigo Chunky, in their iconic “Lettuce” colorway.

To celebrate, I’d like to give two commenters their choice of two patterns from the collection — just leave a note and let me know which ones you’d choose!  I’ll randomly draw two names on Sunday.

Happy Knitting!


Upcoming Pattern!

I’ve been quiet here for two weeks, but there’s been plenty of knitting behind the scenes!

I’ve got a new addition to The Virescent Collection — the Leticia Cowl, made in Malabrigo Chunky.  I hope to have it ready to go by the end of this week.  LOVE the squishability of the yarn:


If you’ve already purchased the full collection, this pattern will automatically be added to your library.  I actually purchased those buttons six or seven years ago, simply for the “Gee, pretty!” factor.  They’re made from a tree branch, and came from the Wooden Treasures shop on Etsy.  I’m so happy to finally put them to use!

I had the chance last weekend to attend a knitting retreat and help a little as a volunteer yarn enabler for Marianated Yarns.  It’s not hard when what you’re pushing is as pretty as this:


Lots of planning and brainstorming underway for future Marianated projects!  It was also fun to see knitters choose colors and yarns for my Emmeline Wrap and Adriatic Stole patterns.  I hope to see some FOs when I come back next year.  How’s this for color inspiration?
