…than I’m off again. It feels like I just got back from DC (wait, I did just get back—I’ve only been home a week), and I’m packing to head up to Toronto. This trip is for fun: my sister, who lives up in the T dot, is getting married to a lovely man, and the clan is gathering for the event. My other sister has rented a cottage, so there will be city time and lake time and family time and time with old friends from the punk rock stompin’ around town years. Many of my internet friends are gathering…
Contrariwise actually started as an idea for a cowl: squishy, double loop cowl in stranded colourwork, which evolved to include bands of texture made with slipped stitches. As it happens, it took longer to get the cowl ready for release, so here it is, the first started and the last finished: Circular Reasoning.
Huzzah, hooray, I’ve got a new pattern out today, and since people really liked the pattern release sale for Firenze, I’m doing it again for this one. The Jazz Age Mittens are inspired by the fabulous geometric designs of the Art Deco period.
Some time ago, for a design contest, I came up with these mittens: I love these mittens. I love the texture of the fabric, I love the way the 2-colour cable looks like embroidery, I love the whole sort of Renaissance textile feel of the things. There was just one problem: they only came in small.
