Dreaming of…the Bridgetown Cowl

Dear knitting friends,

I am so excited to introduce this upcoming design to you.  This cowl pattern was so much fun to design, and it’s very fun to knit.  I just want to share pictures with you right now.  The pattern is to be released next Monday, June 4.  Then I think I’ll tell you the story of its genesis and the inspirations for the design.  For now, pictures.  And an invitation to come join the KAL also starting June 4.  We’ve started a thread in the Ravelry group, here:  Bridgetown Cowl KAL.  As always, there will be prizes and encouragement.

And now, pictures!

A New Pattern and a Knitalong


Passport Mitts, my new design, is now available on Ravelry.  This pattern was originally written as an exclusive design for Tangled Purls’ Passport program.  The exclusivity period is now over and so I am able to offer the pattern for sale to everyone.

The mitts are long and elegant with details that make them a great additon to your fall wardrobe.  They make a perfect project for your holiday gift giving!  The pattern is written in two sizes.

To celebrate, I am offering a discount to readers of this blog.  For 20% off the $4.50 purchase price through September 30, 2015, use the coupon code PMblog20.    Click here to purchase the pattern now, and enter the coupon code at checkout.  You do have to belong to Ravelry to purchase patterns, but it is free and easy to join, and it is an amazing website with a huge database of patterns (among other fantastic features)!

We’re also having a knit-a-long (KAL) in my Ravelry group starting October 1st.  A KAL is great fun.  We discuss our progress, ask questions, post pictures – and at the end, there are prizes.  I’ve found some gorgeous yarns that will be the KAL prizes.  Winners are chosen from among the finished projects randomly.  We truly have so much fun!  I hope you will join us!  You can sign up for the KAL here.
