Spread Your Wings

How was your New Year's celebration? Mine was fantastic. I spent part of it getting this ready:


As promised, I present my 2015 exclusive design, "Butterflies".

Butterflies is worked in two colorways of Kauni Effektgarn in a large circle, then cut at its steek to form a rectangle. Applied knitted cord finishes all four edges, and can be knotted or tied at the corners. Finished size is approximately 12 1/2" X 82"; it's almost a stole.

The kit, which includes the pattern and four (4!) whopping skeins of Kauni Effektgarn is available for purchase to attendees of the Madrona Winter Retreat. It works like this:

Students in my Eeek! Steeks! class will receive their kits via US Mail (shipping later this week), so you can begin knitting your homework.  Remember: you don't have to actually finish the entire project to have a great time in class and learn all you need to know. But if you are a maniac (and I know you are, because you signed up), you can actually leave class with this finished project if you knit to the specified point in the pattern before we meet.

01-06-15, Breaking News: 2 slots have opened up in class! Click HERE to sign up, and get your kit right away!

Everyone else, If you are attending the retreat, (or have a friend who is), you can order a kit from me and pick it up at the retreat. Kits for non-students this year are $75. If you'd like to purchase a kit, please send me an e-mail using the contact tab above, and I'll let you know how to proceed. While there is no limit to the number of kits I can provide, I won't have any extras for sale at the event, so let me know as soon as you can if you'd like to reserve one.


And non-Madrona-attendees, you know I love you too, so if you wait for a year, I'll make the pattern available to the whole wide world. Can't wait that long? Check out Wisteria, Violets, Thistle and Dragons, from prior years, available now.
