Knitting Savannah TSC Artyarns

It’s been awhile, hasn’t it?

Whew! I’m finally settled in from moving, and it’s been a busy post-holiday season. I finished my “Creature Park” (Central Park Hoodie and Creature Comforts hybrid), and it has made its way to its new home in Michigan, where it’s been getting a lot of wear. (Sadly, I did not get to snap a photo of it before I mailed it, as it had already not made it in time for Christmas. Hopefully I’ll be able to get one from the recipient.) My current project is the Bridgette Skirt by Alex Capshaw-Taylor, and I’ve finished one of the chevron panels so far. I started the second one trying to make the colors match, but quickly realized it was a lost cause. I fell in love with this skirt because of the zig-zags and polka dots, plus it’s a good use for Noro. I’ve never made a skirt before, so this will be fun. It’s a really fun knit, and it’s progressing quickly enough. I need to get it done before the Savannah weather decides to snap out of this cold spell.

On another note, I have a new design out! It’s called the Teardrops Shawl, and it’s part of the TSCArtyarns Little Luxuries collection. Funny story: it was photographed with the wrong side facing front, as you’ll see on Ravelry. It doesn’t look terrible that way, and it’s nice to know that it’s easily reversible. The shot featuring the right side is at the bottom of the photos.

I hope to be better about updating this now that it’s not Christmas and I’m not dealing with boxes. I’ll keep you posted! I’ve got a new design in the works that I should be able to share soon.

Trailing Vines Shawl

I’m beginning this blogging journey on the advent of my first knitwear design being published. It is the Trailing Vines Shawl, featured in the TSC Artyarns Second Collection. It’s knit in the oh-so-soft Tranquility yarn, a wool/cashmere/silk blend in the rainforest colorway.

This colorway is one of my favorites with its greens and blues mingling together, but with no unpleasant pooling. I’ve already made this ball into a cake, as I’m planning to make another one of this shawl out of it (when I find the time). The finished product is so light and lofty, and only uses one skein of the yarn. I absolutely love the lace pattern, which is a vintage lace edging, and the garter stitch body is simple enough to complement the lace. You can comment on this TSC Artyarns Ravelry thread for a chance to win a pattern from the collection.
