The Spring + Summer 2015 Issue is live! My design Mia is featured in it!
Spring is the perfect time for lighter fabrics such as linen and silk. It’s also a time for renewed life. So, Shibui’s newest yarn, Twig, is perfect for your spring knitting. Twig’s linen and recycled silk create a light, refreshing look that bends and bows with grace, like new branches in the Spring. It knits up into a beautiful fabric — soft and cool, with the kind of drape that is effortless.
All of these qualities are captured in Mia, an a-line top with a flowing skirt. The drape of the yarn along with the feminine details of the seed stitch and crochet edging form a flattering top. The skirt swings and dances around your hips. The union of the yarn and design creates a very wearable top that is simply elegant.
Mia, a simple elegant name for a simply elegant top. Mia has several origins with varied meanings such as mine, beloved, dear or darling. Once you wear Mia you will be calling it “my dear beloved top!”
Here are some of my test knitters showing off their Flannery’s at Stitches West! So fun!! It is Dana, Jamie and Jamie. Dana and the first Jamie are there with Polka Dot Sheep yarn. This is their first time to Stitches West. Jamie in the middle made her Flannery with Polka Dot Sheep Stumptown DK in color Bitterroot. It is a beautiful yarn that really makes the stitches pop. The other Jamie is there having fun.
Did you get to go, I would love to hear about it!
Here is Flannery, my latest design!
This is definitely a wear every day pullover. It is warm and cozy and of course pretty!
The seed stitch filled horse shoe cables and seed stitch rib add a blank rustic look.There is also seed stitch mixed in with reverse stockinette stitches making the design a study of different ways to use seed stitch.
I picked the name Flannery because it means ruddy and valor. Ruddy fits the rust color and the set up needs a little valor.
The set up of this pullover can be challenging, but there are lots of notes to help and once it is set up the knitting becomes intuitive.
So take courage, plunge in and enjoy the knitting! Your prize will be a lovely comfortable sweater that you will not want to take off.
