My head’s been down and my needles have been busy. Since last we spoke, I’ve knit something for a magazine’s winter 2016 issue, a design for a friend’s book, a revision of a published design for a yarn club, half a shawl, half a dress, something I’m super excited about that will be in a yarn company’s Fall Collection, submitted to another yarn company’s call for spring 2016, and I published this

just in time for Maryland Sheep & Wool. For this year’s show, Jen Heverly of Spirit Trail Fiberworks commissioned a special “spring sweater” in her Sunna blend, a sock weight yarn in glowing colors that is a joy to work with (can you say Merino Cashmere and Silk?). Since Jen made me do it, I named the sweater after her. Heverly is a seamless top down circular yoke sweater, and comes in sizes 33 (36, 39, 42, 45, 48, 51, 54)” bust. In a slightly A-line silhouette, it will flatter a range of figures, and it’s available for download now on Ravelry and also over on Loveknitting.

I also worked on a new Hiro in Green Mountian Spinnery‘s newest yarn, Mewesic (which I picked up at Rhinebeck last fall)

I’m sewing on buttons this holiday weekend, so it will be done just in time to be tucked in with all the sweaters for their summer nap.

I’ve also been traveling. But that’s another post. See you soon!
