Doing a new shawlette a month has been an insane learning experience. My design process is just plain mad. There is no other word. Today is the 28th of July, and I have an wonderful, fabulous shawlette in the works in the gorgeous Opal yarn from ilLOOMinated Yarns. When I say in the works, I mean I have cast-on and did the set-up tab. I've swatched so many different patterns, and none of them were quite right. But I finally found the perfect combination of border and body pattern. It is going to be amazing! But apparently I work best when under the gun, because this will be released on Monday, August 1st. I was wrong about the diamonds by the way. This yarn does not want to be diamonds. It wants to be something else entirely. Something even prettier.
Speaking of ilLOOMinated Yarns, they are at Sock Summit. (Yep, I'm jealous!) Karen is at Sock Summit, peddling her gorgeous yarns in booth #208. So give visit her if you are lucky enough to be there.
And in honor of Sock Summit, I'm having a little pattern sale. All of my sock patterns are 50% off! No coupon code required. Just go browse the pattern store.
