I thought it was time for a wee change….hope you like it :)
in Stitch Mastery Knitting Chart Editor!
Do you see those beautiful little red numbers — they identify groups of the ‘same type’ of stitch to be worked within a row. I know this is a fairly easy sample (since you can see the stitch count at the bottom and top of the chart and these particular sequences run all the way across the chart but…the possibilities. No more counting when you’re knitting!
This chart is a stitch from Knitting Stitches: Over 300 Contemporary and Traditional Stitch Patterns by Mary Webb. It’s found on pg 189. It’s also a stitch that’s part of one of the designs I’m working on at the moment — A Celtic Quilt 1 (to be released in November 2014). Here’s a sneak peek:
You can keep tabs on the latest news in the Impeccable Knitters Gathering Place Ravelry group. If you’d like to know when pattern for these Celtic quilt blocks will be ready, just pop into the chat thread in the group and leave me a short note – be more than happy to send you a quick message when the pattern is released.
Here’s another example:
I changed the font and colour…the annotation frequency can be set within the program; in this case it will annotate any run of 5 or more stitches.
How clever is that then?
from the magic of Faeriegood’s Etsy shop.
3 beautiful knitting project bags — fully lined — a generous 14″ tall and with an inside pocket to store lots of little goodies. I can easily fit a whole sweater’s worth in here with room to spare.
Carol’s eye for matching design and colour are fantastic – I gave her a general idea of what I liked and she created these three beauties for me…and very reasonably priced, too!
A happy dance was in order today!
Faeriepaw used her own hand-dyed yarn — she dyes OOAK (one-of-a-kind) yarns which you can see in her Faerieknitz Etsy shop. Oh, and there’s a chance to win one of her beautiful skeins in this KAL. There’s still lots of time to join — KAL goes until the end of October 2014.
Lost Kingdom: Celtic Love Song shawl
Once again the beautifully lilting tunes of Portuguese composer BrunuhVille spring to life and share their story in this richly cabled shawl. Intricate melodies and harmonies translate into intertwining cables in the Celtic Love Song shawl.
A rectangular cabled shawl that can be knit with or without the end panels. Full details on the Ravelry pattern page.
Today my Come Fly With Me shawl is featured on the Elann.com website. So exciting! Elann even has a yarn special on today that will allow you to earn enough yarn for this shawl. See full details at the link above.
The response has been fantastic! The Permin Estelle yarn used for this shawl sample is so buttery soft it’s unbelievable. The colourway I used is the 605 Cobalt, so wonderfully indicative of the blue skies that the Silver Dart must have flown.
