Maryland Sheep and Wool

This is how Yarn Noir Superfluity Kit knits up
It's less than a week until Maryland Sheep and Wool. Are you going? There is so much to see and do. So remember to check out the Three Waters Farm booth in the Main Exhibition Hall, booth B-23.

This week I'll be adding previews for things to see in the TWF booth, so keep checking back.

TWF's customers at Maryland will receive a coupon code for 10% off all my pattern PDFs (20% off Heart of the Lotus, my newest pattern). Purchase any of the beautiful fibers and yarns in the booth to qualify for the discount, good May 5-8, 2012. Use the coupon code to buy the patterns in my Ravelry Store Lynne Vogel Designs from your mobile device and download them on the spot.

Mary Ann will have many new and exciting colorways available in Superfluity Yarn Kits. See previews here. 

I'll have two original pieces on display in the booth. More later.

Heart of the Lotus

delicate, scrunched
 My newest pattern! Fabulous armwarmers with three variations: Ornate (bottom left), Delicate (top left) and Sleek (bottom right) written for both fingering and sport weight yarns.

Ornate is shown in Verdant Gryphons gorgeous merino/cashmere blend "Bugga!". See it as a project (Bugga Heart) on Ravelry.

Delicate is shown in Malabrigo "Finito". Project here.
UPDATE: Heart of the Lotus is featured in Malabrigo's Online Patterns . What a great resource!

Sleek is in madelinetosh "Pashmina". Project here.

Want the pattern? Buy it here.

sleek, worn long


two versions

I wanted to see the difference between the Sleek and Delicate versions in Pashmina, a gorgeous sport weight merino/silk/cashmere yarn. If you look closely in the bottom photo (two versions), you can see the Sleek version on the bottom half and the Delicate on the top. My friend Amy fell in love with these and had to have them, and since she preferred the Sleek version, I just ripped out the extra tier. Couldn't even tell it was gone. I want to try it with three tiers next.
