Carolyn's Spiralling Leaves

Carolyn just finished her Spiralling Leaves Fingerless Gloves. She spun the yarn (which she calls "Green Card" from a carded blend of her handdyed wool. These leaves are cushy, deep, a real stand out. She says: " I do love the way they fit. They are very elegant. In fact, I love everything about them!" Way to go Carolyn!

My new ETSY Shop

Check out my new ETSY Shop! This should make it much easier for you to buy my patterns. Soon I should have some handspun yarn posted here as well, so keep checking back. Am adding new stuff all the time. You'll find my newest pattern there, Spiralling Leaves Fingerless Gloves (top). These are so fun to knit, with leaf motifs that spiral in opposite directions...right for the right hand, left for left. I knit these from Capistrano Fiber Arts superwash merino sock yarn.
Please see the new link to Three Waters Farm. If you haven't checked this out yet, see some of my official colorways that Mary Ann at TWF is dyeing on fiber and yarn. The gorgeous winter blend "Mansock", featured on my Tiny Triangle Fingerless Gloves  (bottom, pattern available on ETSY) is available at Three Waters Farm. You can get it in fingering weight, sport weight, or fiber. If you don't see it, just email Mary Ann and she'll dye it up for you. She also has fiber kits for my Justify pattern on Winter 2007.

Yvonne's Version of "Zylie"

Check out this beauty!!! Yvonne, better known by her Ravelry handle "lavendersheep", finished her version of Sandy's Sweater for Zylie. She painted her own roving for her handspun too.  As anyone knows who has tried to change a colorway for a pattern, it isn't always that easy to balance a whole new set of colors and have them look the way you want. Yvonne did a lovely job of that here, toning the brilliant colors into a frosty pale version that still has plenty of punch. Great work, Yvonne. Thanks for finding the errata in the pattern too! This helps everyone.
