Perforation & Misdirection

Say hello to two more new patterns premiering at DFW Fiber Fest this weekend - Perforation...

...and Misdirection!

I worked with Amanda of Lone Star Arts on both these designs, using her DFWFF show exclusive colorway along with a coordinating solid. A mixture of simple stitches and unusual construction gives the Perforation shawl the ideal balance of interest and mindlessness for that meditative knit you’ve been craving! The shawl is made with her Monarch Silver base, and while the photos hardly do it justice, the stellina sparkles in this sock weight yarn made this shawl such a fun knit!

The Misdirection cowl features her Armadillo base, which is a fantastic fingering weight yarn as well, if sparkles aren't your thing (though you could easily use either yarn with either pattern if you like). Two strands held together make this cowl super squishy and a cute quickie project to boot! The simple fade effect is achieved by swapping out one strand at a time for the second color.

If you happen to find yourself at DFW Fiber Fest this weekend, look for both samples in the Lone Star Arts booth. And keep your eyes peeled for me too. I'd love to meet you!
