We finally have Winter here in Northern California, which means dreary rainy days. I am craving color, and my loom reflects it. I have decided to put together another e-book of patterns, this one to be focused on texture and color. The first photo shows a large shawl pattern for the new e-book, called "American Paris."
In the second photo, the "Steamer Shawl" pattern is shown. I finished this some time ago, but had to go through quite a few ribbons before deciding on a simple, wide satin ribbon to contrast with the somewhat rustic yarn. The yarn is Beaverslide fingering, a wool and mohair blend, in "Chokecherry Heather." The photographs do not do the rich purple - red color justice.
The third photo shows my "Sweet on Ruffles", unblocked, made for the Ravelry Loom-a-long. I used Wool of the Andes worsted weight in "Nevermore", on the purple KK hat loom. The loom-a-long is running through March, so please come and join in.
On my loom, the fourth photo shows a Deco themed colorwork cape, for the new e-book. This has been a lot of fun to work on ... after the first 5 tries. Now that the pattern is settled, I am enjoying it very much.
The fifth photo shows my 90 peg baby afghan loom with a little asymmetrical lace shawlette called "Venetian Lace." The yarn is a fingering weight Zauerball in a perfect-for-February color combination of pink, white and mint green.
