You know I’m a fan :)
So, congrats Jenna on your newest publication!
Knitters, if you happen to have 1 skein of Manos del Uruguay lying about not destined for greatness yet, you could get a head start on your holiday knitting (I know, can’t believe I’m thinking about that either in July!). If you’d like to see these in a luscious tangerine, see the Knitscene photo on Jenna’s blog Knits & Wovens and on Ravelry.

November 2012 News: All of our labels are coming together under one umbrella and an exciting new label: Impeccable Knits
Some of you may know that I publish patterns under a few different labels: currently South Mountain ~ Naturally, PurpleSage Designs and Cranberry Ocean Knits. It all started with one little pattern — a celtic knot I had envisioned for the Celtic Jenna Rose pattern — I wanted to chart a closed-ring cable and with the patient assistance of Jenna H of Knits ‘n’ Wovens, it came to be.
I love yarn. I adore hand spun, hand-dyed yarn from indie dyers and designers; the talent that abounds in that community awes me! I could spend days in a yarn shop like Gaspereau Valley Fibres and have to be dragged out! However, I am a practical person who fully knows that yarns that utilize economy of scale are a very important part of the knitting world, too.
The three pattern lines just slowly emerged — all on their own, honest!! Because each line focuses on its own special types of yarns:
~~ South Mountain ~ Naturally patterns are written for 100% natural yarns;
~~ PurpleSage Designs patterns are natural yarns /blends and
~~ Cranberry Ocean Knits patterns focus is on easy-care, easy-on-the-pocketbook acrylic and acrylic blends
My intention was to keep them separate. However, as the pattern lines expand, the thought of keeping 3 websites up-to-date seems a little daunting and will take way too much time away from my knitting ;)
So, over the next few weeks/months you’ll see some changes to the PurpleSage Designs website as it becomes the portal to all three pattern lines.
Here’s a picture of the sample that was sent to YF to be photographed for the publication. For the whole story and more pics see Jenna’s blog post for today. Thanks, Jenna, for allowing me to post this pic — and thank you to your photographer, too.
Edit May 5/09:
the preview pages are up on the Yarn Forward magazine site so you can see the pattern picture here — it’s the 4th one down. The modeled cardi was knit using recycled yarn which Jenna over-dyed. For those of you on Ravelry, here’s the pattern page link.
How exciting is this!
Jenna’s Leaf Lace cardi (#22 in the 3rd thumbnail) can be seen on the preview pages for Issue 13 of Yarn Forward magazine. It’s a beautiful cropped, short-sleeved cardigan with an asymmetrical closing — perfect for when you need just a little touch of warmth!
