Pumpkin Ale from Ysolda

For a little design break, I start working on Ysolda’s Pumpkin Ale.

Im impressed with how easy is to follow the pattern and make the cables… Its look so difficult, but I was totally wrong!

At this moment, I’m finish the back and have no problems with the pattern or with the cables… the best is I’m loving this pattern…

 

Winter is coming!!!

Winter

This pattern is inspiring by the color of the amazing Road to China Light- Blue Tourmaline from The Fibre Company. When I saw this color, i remember those cold  and bright Winter mornings when you scream for a soft, warm and luscious knit.

The Winter shawl is worked top-down in a very easy lace pattern. The pattern is completely written and you can knit it without the beads.

Hope you like it and enjoy this little Winter luxury!
