A Little Contest

Hi everybody! I have decided to run a little contest. To enter simply leave a comment on the pattern post of your choice. Most posts include more than one pattern, so state which one you like. This contest is open to everyone. Feel free to link the contest in your blogs, if you want. Remember to post where you heard about the contest(Here, on Ravelry, Facebook or some one's blog) and your contact info so that I know who to send a pattern to. Contest runs until 12:01 am, PST Thursday, September 14th. I will draw one random winner at that time and they will win their favorite pattern. Simple, no?

A Productive Summer

While I adore creating designs and knitting them until the process is perfect, I have to admit that I detest transcribing my notes into a coherent and easily understood pattern. That is one of the main reasons why the posts in this blog are few and far between. Another reason is that I hate to stop knitting long enough to type up patterns and post them online.  :) 
This summer has been quite productive. Since my last post I have converted several of my patterns to be compatible with mobile devices, designed a triangular shawl in knit, a triangular shawl in crochet, two rectangular wraps, three hats and a very silly pair of slippers.
I have even gotten around to writing up the patterns for the knit triangular shawl, one wrap and a hat.
First up, my homage to the late, great Miss Elizabeth Taylor.
She inspired me with her elegance, her style and her stunning Violet eyes. Knit with Blue Heron Yarns "Rayon Metallic", this shawl sparkles and shines like her signature diamonds.
Mobile device compatible version available.


Next we have:

Super slouchy, very textured and ultra hip.

And finally a wrap that can also be worn as a scarf and is named for a very special lady, 
Mette over at Ranch of the Oaks. 
Go there, visit Mette, Tom, the Alpaca 
and the Sheep.
