Yesterday I came across Quince & Co’s Scarves Etc 4 Publication, and came across this gorgeous scarf that made me completely re-think my thoughts of Entrelac. So after seeing this scarf I did a little digging on Pinterest & the internets and came across these other lovely entrelac designs.
I’m particularly in love with the Vivienne Westwood design, and I’m thinking of knitting up a version for myself for next fall. I love the blend of the soft oatmeal color of the yarn, and the wood buttons create a warm accent.
For a quicker project, try Purl Bee’s Just Triangles Scarf – garter stitch lace in soft pastel colors? Who could say no to that?
And for those itching for a lot of a challenge, check out the Forest Path Stole – Lace stitches & entrelac? Challenge accepted!

I’ve been ticking away slowly at the second front for Timberline, and with nothing but the button band & shawl collar to go, I can’t wait to finally finish this monstrosity. It’s been great to knit, and I’m excited about finally being able to gift it, but I desperately need to look at something other than a dark grey yarn.
Also on my plate are some mitts to be finished for my design collaboration with @sillylittlelady, a commissioned design for Knit.Purl, and a commissioned design for Holla Knits.
Once these projects have been completed, I can’t wait to be selfish and just knit a few things for me. There have been a few projects sitting by the wayside that I can’t wait to get started. Some of these projects include Alloy, Ondawa, this blanket (to be self-published), and a handful of other Klever Knits designs like this and this.
Later this week: Design launch of Blanca Negra!
I am so excited to announce that one of my designs was accepted for Knit.Purl’s Winter 2015 Issue. This is the first time I’ll be in a major US knitting magazine, and I can’t believe how lucky I was to be chosen. The garment is named Okemo, after the ski resort in Vermont – a perfect winter weather destination for wearing this design!
I also got pegged to work with Allyson again at Holla Knits, and I am SO excited to work with her again, especially since I get to work with such a fun, bright yarn! I’ll be using Knit Picks Shine Sport in Reef, a crazy soft cotton blend. The design is called Backbone, and once it’s released, you’ll know why!
While I can’t really share much yet about either design, I will be able to share some teaser shots once in awhile, so stay tuned for those!
As I have been knitting away on Timberline, I notice myself being more and more drawn to the simpler knitting stitches. When knitting so many intricate cables, the thought of a simple stitch with almost no focus needed is so appealing. And with that, I’ve compiled a collage of projects using the ever so simple Moss stitch.
The simple structure of the sitch just begs to be used when creating garments that need a little bit of structure, like the Peplum jacket from Kim Hargreaves, Steed. Or, when you want a warm and cozy pullover with a hint of intrigue.
You can bet you’ll be seeing some more moss stitch from me soon!
