Exsanguine

Apologies, dear readers, for my absence. I'm afraid the hustle-bustle of the holidays and an acute case of The Plague (or maybe it just felt like it) have kept me away from the blog for a couple weeks. I'm feeling much better now though and plan to get back to your regularly scheduled programming soon. But first! Knitting!

Exsanguine Shawl

Take a gander at my newest knitting pattern, the Exsanguine shawl, now available for purchase and download through Ravelry. Its upside-down hearts and aptly namely colorway - "My Bloody Valentine" - call to mind the darker side of human emotions. So whether you're commemorating the upcoming anniversary of the Saint Valentine's Day Massacre or secretly dreaming of that guy who dumped you on February 13th last year meeting a slow, painful death, you can do so in style and warmth with your very own Exsanguine shawl.

Or hey, maybe you'd like a cheerier accessory for upcoming holiday of romance. Worked up in a solid red or pink, the lacy heart pattern would take on a whole new aesthetic. You could even use a fun rainbow gradient yarn to celebrate the USA's first Valentine's Day with nationwide marriage equality! #LoveWins!

  1. Sorry you were feeling poorly. Perhaps you have gotten your seasonal bug out of the way and will have an ick-free winter from here on!

    Lovely scarf, although I'm the suggestible sort and now can't get past the name of it!!
