I expect that 2016 will be similar to 2015 (in a good way!).
A lovely gradient shawl, Isn’t It Romantic?, is due to be released any day. It’ll be available exclusively through local yarn stores through Lorna’s Laces through 2016. Â If you’re going to TNNA, catch a peek of it in the Lorna’s Laces booth.
One small collection, Brewery Hats, should be out this month. It includes 4 unisex hats, all worked in gorgeous Anzula For Better or Worsted. The patterns will be available individually, with a discount given for purchasing all four.
The peek on the left is of the border of a shawl in Anzula CloudÂ in Seaside and Victoria. Â (Their Victoria colorway, the dark blue, is that indigo/twilight blue that is one of my favorite colors.) Â I’m hoping to finish it in the next couple weeks and having it up for testing in February, with a goal of a March 2016 release.
I have yarn for several more shawls and accessories (mitts, hats, orÂ cowls) in the design queue. I’ll be doing a hat as part of the Indie Untangled yarn club. Â I may be doing a design for a yarn company for summer TNNA. Â I have several designs coming out through Knit Picks collections this year as well.
Other than that, I’d like to do at least one additional sweater this year. Â I have a black shell I got from Old Navy that I wear all the time, and I’d like to do Â a sweater that will fill that gap in my wardrobe when it finally kicks the bucket. Â It’s one of those simple basics that can be a wardrobe staple, and adaptable to various styles depending on how you accessorize it.
