During February and March three project morsels moved across your computer screens - just little bits with no beginning, middle, or end.
Do these look familiar? The purple lace shawl which prompted me to reveal my matchy-matchy tendencies? The Crystal Palace Panda Wool with amazing stitch definition? The playful Classic Elite Alpaca Sox yarn which pooled in the skein, but not in the knit fabric?
I'm very excited to place those knitting morsels into context:
(I did not ask Chrissy for permission to use those photos. I'm very bad. Do not follow my example. Chrissy, please don't kill me!)
Three new Gardiner Yarn Works designs, debuting at TNNA very shortly!
Knitting these samples was absolutely delightful! Let me sing one praise in particular - I am 100% certain that the purple shawl will be the next Swallowtail, Flower Basket, Shetland Triangle, Icarus, Leaf Lace... what have you! The IT triangle shawl worked from the nape of the neck down. (Toe The Line was the pattern's working title, not sure if it's staying...) It's a brilliant one, Chrissy ;).
