i made this!

i just remembered something! it's almost time for...

my second-ever published knitting design is coming out soon. the book is called "knitting scarves from around the world" and it features some really beautiful work. i had the privilege to be asked to design the only pattern for handspun yarn (i spun and knit the sweater in the book) AND to style the model shots during production last winter. talk about a cold, snowy day. we were shooting at the american swedish institute and there was a huge blizzard the night before. the snow was several feet deep (notice how the snow is as tall as the park bench!) and we were freezing outside during photography. it was an awesome experience though. do check out the book if you see it at your local yarn store or bookshop. my pattern is this one... a super easy cowl made with bulky handspun. it looks cute around the shoulders like below, draped in front as a scarf or pulled over the head for a very lion-king statement!
