Fall is passing quickly as it always does. I was away on holiday for about half of October so it seems to be passing a little faster than usual this year.
Here is a peek at where I spent my holiday this year.
Once again this year I was lucky enough to be asked to design a pattern for Wooly Wonka 2013 Heroines Clubs. For 2013 Anne has chosen favourite literary heroines as the theme for her popular club. There are two year long clubs to choose from, accessories or shawls. And they should both be spectacular. Each kit includes a pattern and a beautiful skein of hand dyed yarn especially dyed for that pattern. Anne also runs KALs for each kit on her group on Ravelry. These KALs might be just the incentive you need to get knitting while you chat with some of your fellow club members.
My pattern begins the new year with the January shipment for the Accessories club and my heroine is Anne of Green Gables. Anne is the girl that everyone loves and I sometimes still delve into Lucy Maud Montgomery’s books for a glimpse of childhood. I sent Anne at Wooly Wonka some images of the color (green, of course) that I wanted for my design and soon after a package arrived with the perfect shade of green. The yarn is fabulous, an organic merino that is so soft and satisfying to knit with. Perfection. And that is all I can tell you now. But please visit Anne at her group on Ravelry for more details about all the kits that will be included in the 2013 clubs (follow the links above). She gives awesome customer service!
This back yard might look familar to you as the setting of most of my pattern photos. Today, no knit wear, just fantastic colors.
