I love purple – sneak preview of new design

It seems like a long time ago when Clair was released. I have done lots of bad stuff (mouwahaha) with this latest project of mine – frogging many times and taking lots of breaks.
Does the stitch pattern look familiar to you? It is based on the lacy shells of Ada that I really like. I definitely love the purple with the lace.  I hope you like it too.  (Please visit again for more details when the pattern is released in this fall.)

Another Irene

I’ve just finished my fifth Irene cardigan, and I still enjoy making it.  This is a full length long sleeve version that can be buttoned up all the way.

Flower Power – sneak previews

Arianna – two-way floral lace cardigan

After designing Angela for my daughter, I wanted a similar cardigan (but with floral details) that is easy to throw on in a rush for the morning or going out.  Arianna sure does the job for me!
In drapey kimono style and with elbow length sleeves , Arianna is full of flower power – dainty cheery blooms brimming all over, plus a beautiful floral lace yoke on the back.
It can also be worn “upside down” (as shown in photo below on the right) with extra fabric around the neck for additional warmth and coziness.

Also, thanks to Mr Antonio Gonzalez-Arnao’s generous support, the beautiful Malabrigo Sock yarn used for this cardigan has made my project a wonderful experience.

Julia – floral lace tunic

I love the floral stitch pattern I specifically designed for Arianna so much that I have restyled it into a more open lacework for a spring/summer garment. Julia is the end result – a chic feminine A-line tunic with moderate hi-lo hem and yoke, made with breezy cool linen. I’m so ready to say goodbye to the Winter with all this blooming flower power!

Iris – fern lace loop scarf

Iris came about when I wanted a simple scarf to loop twice cozily around my neck in one of my favorite colors.  To add interest, I decided to embellish the scarf with a lace border in off-white. In the end, I liked the fern lace border so much that I extended it to the remainder of the scarf but in a simpler variation. Though a tad more elaborate than originally planned, the final rendition proved to be more interesting to knit. Above all, it is as beautiful as it is fun to wear.

Irene – floral lace yoke cardigan

Loving the floral lace of Cynthia and Jennifer, I have carried the floral theme into Irene. To complement the beautiful floral lace yoke, a simpler lacy stripe pattern was designed for the rest of the cardigan. Irene by far might be my most favorite pattern as I am planning to make another one with summer yarn. It’ll probably be fun to wear it to the Tulip Festival this spring to see the lovely blooms.
