Lousia Top #2

I originally knit this design using a yarn that unfortunately has been discontinued.
Kat Coyle, who owns The Little Knittery in Atwater Village, CA, asked me to design a version using Juniper Moon Farm’s Zooey Aran yarn. I made the stripes wider starting with the dark color stripe and ending with the light color stripe, so each sleeve edge is a different color stripe. It’s knit side-to-side which give this top a wonderful drape.

This Pattern is listed on RAVELRY

ON THE NEEDLES

One of the three Designs I am working on at the moment.  A shawl using Malabrigo Rios Super Wash.  I did a Baby blanket a years ago with Rios and I Loved knitting with this Beautiful Yarn.  Making Progress actually I'm in the home stretch.

Invisible Weaving

I do sweater repair and finishing for THE LITTLE KNITTERY in Atwater village where I work every weekend. It just happened, since we have a considerable amount of moth eating here in Southern California and we were getting a lot of requests. Turns out I really like doing this kind of work. 
Here is a tip--store your wool items in an air tight container! and you won't need my service.

Something Really Cute

One of the knitters who purchased my Earth Lap Blanket Pattern sent me photos of the two blankets she knit for her Dogs.  SO CUTE I had to share.
