good morning gang! sorry for the long delay between posts; david and i have been traveling. we crossed the country and have landed in sunny san diego for a little R&R break. i wanted to get out and take pictures yesterday, but we crashed when we got here and woke up a little too late in the day for that.
today though (once it gets light) kim and i are headed to la jolla to meet up with our good friend jocelyn and i’m sure i’ll be coming home with pictures galore.
for the meantime though, erica from kollage yarns wants to extend a fun offer to all of you.
remember the susanna shawlette that i designed a few months ago for kollage? well, the pattern has finally been released and is being sold by kollage on patternfish
in fact, i was honored that kollage celebrated its 150th patternfish release with this design
it’s a very versatile and fun piece to wear, knit up in kollage riveting sport, a 100% cotton yarn made from recycled blue jeans.
shown above in the storm colorway and below in the lava colorway, this piece knits up quickly from one skein in simple openwork patterns that will appeal to both beginning lace knitters and experienced knitters alike.
i offered that blue one to david to wear when he commutes by bike and he’s almost never seen without it now (it looks super cute with his stretchy pea coat and slouch hat; he wore them both for traveling yesterday, keeping the draft from the plane off his neck and bare head).
so here’s the deal: erica has a copy of the shawlette pattern and a skein of riveting in the winner’s choice of color to give to one luck person who visits the new kollage facebook page, “likes” it, and leaves a comment on the CONTEST post (it will be clearly marked CONTEST). you must leave your comment there (not here) to be in the running. the deadline is 12 midnight on tuesday, jan 17.
and we’ll be back soon with more san diego fun.
