Summer is on the way!

 

June has arrived and I have two new patterns for you. Also this month I'll be posting some videos about gardening. Stay tuned.

 
 
 The Sprite Tam

The Sprite Tam

It's whimsical and fun as well as a quick knit in traditional stranded colorwork. The Sprite Tam was inspired by cool and misty late spring mornings in the garden where the Fair Folk play. Try it out in any set of colors or even a solid (for the light green) and a variegated yarn for the dark green. See what kind of fun you can have and be creative. Knit in a heavy fingering yarn, it's light and airy, even though it's a stranded piece. 

 The Liath Scarf

The Liath Scarf


I wanted a design that would show off the beauty of this gradient dyed yarn. I think the Liath Scarf achieves that goal. This gorgeous Cormo Lace from Sincere Sheep was gradient dyed with logwood and iron, yielding beautiful purple to gray. You can use any gradient yarn you like for this pattern or a solid. Just be sure to swatch first to ensure the that the sequence knitting sections are highlighted well by your chosen yarn.

You can find both of these patterns here in the shop or on my Ravelry page.
