Contest winner and new pattern release

Our winner of the Tippi Toes, Hitch contest is CelticNana! Please email me ( with your mailing address and ravelry name so we can get your prize to you.

Now for new business...
May I introduce Annadele Wrap.

 Photos by: Logan Williams
Annadele Wrap is a mitered square, mobius wrap. Two colors and two mitered square designs are combined for the back of the wrap. One side is straight while the other is jagged. The squares are worked in a V-shape to allow them to drape over the shoulder.

The front panel is a combination of 2 lace patterns and garter stitch. Stitches are picked up along one edge, then the panel is twisted before sewing to the other edge, creating the twist.

Join us in January for a Ravelry KAL of Annadele Wrap. More information on that coming soon. In the meantime,

Midnight Waterfall

Meet Midnight Waterfall, the newest release from A B-ewe-tiful Design.

Midnight Waterfall is knit with Madlinetosh Tosh Merino Light in Stargazing, Jade and Kelp. The mitered square design with fingering-weight yarn allows for a fit, flattering style.

Two-colored, slipped-stitch mitered squares run throughout the front and also highlight the sleeve. Stitches are picked up along the mitered square panel and worked sideways to complete for front sections. 
The back has narrow mitered panels and a chevron patterned panel which are sewn or crocheted together. 

Sizes run from 31 - 52 inch chest. So that the overall look remains balanced over such a range of sizes, mitered square and chevron panels are adjusted to fit shoulder width of all sizes.

Welcome to the second to last stop on the Hitch Blog Tour. So sad it’s coming to an end.

When I first got news Cooperative Press was doing a book based on Hitchcock movies I was thrilled. You see, I am a bit of a throwback. I long for the days when men wore hats even though I did not actually live through those days. When my friend had crushes on various New Kids on the Block, I had (still do) a crush on Jimmy Stewart.

And I love old movies, especially Hitchcock movies. I love being on the edge of my seat, waiting to see what will happen next - so much better than constantly hiding your eyes from all the gore of some of today’s movies.
Hitch was a great excuse to dust off the VCR and bring out all my Hitchcock movies – I have nearly a complete set. While watching, I sketched about half a dozen ideas based on North by Northwest, Rear Window, Vertigo, and The Man Who Knew Too Much before I even played Marnie. As soon as the movie began I knew, Tippi Hedren would be my inspiration. Lucky for me, she is in two Hitchcock movies so I was able to pull from both Marnie and The Birds.  The result is Tippi Toes.

The best part is now I get to have my first blog contest. Sweet Georgia Yarns has generously donated yarn for Tippi Toes and CooperativePress has donated an ebook. Leave a comment about your favorite Hitchock leading man or lady to enter. Free shipping in Continental US and Canada.
A winner will be picked Dec. 1.

Don’t miss the last stop on tour Nov. 25

Pattern Updates

Color Your Own Diamonds Scarf was one of our first mitered square patterns.
Originally, there were a whole lot of words. Now there are some very pretty charts. While we used two colorways of Noro Silk Garden Lite and cut up the yarns a little to get the colors just so, it's also a great way to use up all those bits of left over yarns.
In the weeks to follow, we will also be updating Lacey and Miters and Lace Scarf - the original miters and lace design.

Introducing the Sherborne Scarf

Introducing the Sherborne Scarf

The Gothic style architecture can be seen in the Abbey Church of Saint Mary the Virgin in Sherborne, England, more commonly called Sherborne Abbey. The Abbey is know for it's bells, choir and ceiling.
The Sherborne Scarf echos the diamond detail of the Sherborne Abbey ceiling. This scarf, which uses lace-weight wool and super-fine kid mohair, is made of mitered squares and mitered triangles built on the previous one, no sewing required. You can personalize it by adding more colors to use up leftover bits of yarn, adding more squares for a super long scarf, or changing the yarns for a chunky look. The possibilities are endless. 
It is also a simple way to experiment with the mitered square patterns in A Knitter's Gallery of Mitered Squares. Just swap out the mitered square pattern for a different one in the book, or use several in one scarf.
The best part is, Shreborne Scarf is free pattern for 'liking' us on Facebook or subscribing to this blog. Already a friend or subscriber? Like this post on Facebook or comment on this blog and we'll send you a link.
