Sweet Pixie Tunic
About 2 months ago I spent a day at Yarns in the Farms, a favorite nearby yarn store of mine, for their annual Yarn Crawl. While there I got to see the beautiful design Jill Stover (the owner of the shop!) came up with using our yarns and yarns by Be Sweet. I immediately fell in love and put the tunic on right over my jeans and clashing turtleneck. If you're interested in purchasing this pattern, please contact Yarns in the Farms. Take a look at Jill's Sweet Pixie Tunic and the one I made below.
The tunic is a super easy and quick knit. It calls for 1 skein of our Pixie Dust yarn (see it at the bottom border) and 3 skeins of Be Sweet's Baby Boucle yarn. I picked up some Be Sweet yarn in a pretty periwinkle blue color and decided to make one of my own. I love the combo of these yarns together and the creative way Jill incorporated our bulky yarn into the design. It only took me about 1 week to make, another plus. Here's my finished tunic! I can't wait to wear it.
Bottom hem detail- I used Pixie Dust color Boho Blush!
Our first pattern for sale!
Today has been an awesome day- we set up our Ravelry Pro account and now we can sell patterns! Yay! It's taken me a long time to get that set up so this is huge news for us. I couldn't be more excited to share a gorgeous cowl pattern with you. This pattern is now available here to download and purchase. I know it's a little bit hot to be thinking about chunky cowls knit in our Pixie Dust yarn right now but with something this pretty, why not?! I plan to knit up a few in different colors for our next tradeshow in June and make them for Christmas presents too! This is a first time collaboration between Knit Collage and the fabulous designer Tanis Gray! In case you missed my last blog post about her, Tanis has just written a beautiful book called Capitol Knits and has some amazing experience in the knitting world. This pattern uses 3 skeins of Pixie Dust yarn and is knit in a gorgeous cable stitch. It is the perfect wow accessory for a cold winter day! There is a cable chart included in this pattern.
I love the cable texture! The pattern is available on Ravelry here. Also, more patterns coming soon so stay tuned!
My Andromeda Sweater finally finished!
I finally knit an entire sweater! It's lame that it's taken me this long in life to do this but now that I've done it, there's no turning back. My first sweater project was a pattern by Army of Knitters called Andromeda that uses our Stargazer Silk yarn. The pattern is availale through a ravelry download here and uses about 7 skeins of yarn. It is the perfect first project because it's just a big rectangle with holes for my head and arms. The stitch pattern is pretty complicated though (at least for me!) but totally worth the time. It's gorgeous and shows off the yarn really well. I plan on wearing this all summer long. Below, some pics of me wearing the one I knit in Blue Lagoon and the one my co-worker Susan knit in Antique Coral.
Susan's sample in Antique Coral- beautiful!
