Two Free Patterns
At the beginning of April I decided to document my knitting and designing life. What a decision it was! Through this blog I have received warm encouragements and informative feedbacks, and interactions and friendships have been established. I just want to let all of you know that I feel extremely grateful--I know how lucky I am, and will always do my best.
I had planned to put together something for the three-month-birthday of the blog. However I caught a cold a couple of days ago and didn't find time to do this. I didn't even finish Indigo Flowers Vest. Fortunately, Connie told me that two of my patterns, Birdie and Jellyfish, just appeared on MagKnits. So here they are!
Birdie is roomy enough for a book and a bunch of pencils. I used Filatura di Crosa Millefili Fine, a silky smooth 4-ply/light DK weight yarn for the bag. For a chubby bird, I used a worsted weight yarn (Reynolds Saucy). In case you are wondering, the book is Someday, a moving essay with unique illustrations.
Jellyfish is made from one skein of Lana Grossa Baby Kid and bordered with Knit Picks Andean Treasure. The shrug is now my favorite piece to wear to garden parties and weddings. To my disappointment, no one asked if I've made it myself :(
Finally, thank you for all these thoughtful suggestions on Indigo Flowers, I appreciate your help, and will get back to it soon.
Have a great day!
