What I Did on My Summer Vacation…

Most of my summer design efforts revolved around a coordinating accessories collection.  I first had six pieces in mind — somehow it morphed into nine?  The first five will be released in September as Vol. 1 of the collection…here’s a sneak peek at one, the Shelby Hat:

(eeek!)

Hello, there!  While I am an avid knitting blog reader, I haven’t maintained my own blog for years and years.  To my friends’ dismay, I don’t even post on my FB page!  But I have some fun projects in the works with my knitting designs, so I’m peering out of my hermit hole to share some sneek peeks and such.

Here’s a pic of the pattern that I spent this morning pounding away at:

Gorgeous yarn, right???  It’s a lovely MCN gradient set from Marianated Yarns.  The base, Scrumptious HT, is one of my very favorite fingering weights…it’s so lovely to knit, and it drapes like a dream.  Aiming to publish it next week!  (If you happen to be in NJ, Marian will have the gradient sets at NJ Sheep and Fiber Festival on Sept. 12-13.)
