2017 will likely not be as prolific as 2016 — 26 new designs is a hard number to beat, and much of what I’ll be working on won’t be published til spring 2018.

Having said that, I am working on a collaboration with another designer, and that should go live in fall 2017!  I’ll let you know more as things progress. I’m already testing some of the patterns (there will be five from me altogether) in my Ravelry group. That sweater-in-progress pic, above, is one of them. It’s now finished and will be up for testing soon!

I’ve had a couple patterns accepted by a third party…when those come out I’ll let you know. I’ll keep notes and in progress pics so I can show you the design process on those after they’re published. 

For self publishing, I have some lovely Anzula Ava. Expect to see a hat and a cowl in that. I also reviewed what yarn I do have in my design stash. Some gorgeous stuff! Expect to see some accessories and shawls with yarn from companies like Bijou Basin, Dream in Color, Koigu, and more.

The updated Wrought Cardi should be available in a few months. That’s being redone in Dragonfly Fibers Valkyrie; same gauge as the discontinued BFL, but I’ve updated the charts to eliminate the wrong side cable crosses. If you already have the Wrought Cardi as a single pattern in your Ravelry library, or the PDF of California Revival Knits in your Ravelry library, you’ll be getting the updated pattern as well. (The original pattern, in the print edition is still a great pattern, lol!)
