Stitches with Style

by ysoldateague May 02, 2009


Yesterday I spent the afternoon at Stitches with Style in Newark, DE. This was a nice big store full of wonderfully welcoming knitters and lots of my knits.
Sara, the daughter’s owner picked me up from the train station and I quickly roped her into modelling my sample Matilda Jane – which fit her perfectly. She’s already bought the pattern to make her own. This one’s in New Lanark’s silk tweed double knitting weight and my friend Mel knit it before I left.
Another, rather glam, Matilda Jane showed up.
Isn’t it pretty?
They had a potluck dinner, with lots of tasty dishes – I left very full, but couldn’t get into this Delaware specialty. ‘Pretzel salad’ – pretzels, cream, jelly with strawberries. Hmm…
I considered feeding mine to this guy.
Or maybe this one
There was a brilliantly colourful Ishbel, who’s knitter wasn’t sure about wearing it – tell her she should!
I helped this knitter pick out yarn for her Liesl
and there were more in progress
and ready to be swept dramatically away from my camera
Later I met this gorgeous vintagey adaptation of Little Birds.

Thank you to everyone at Stitches with Style for having me and to Liz and Jen for hosting me and ferrying me around so graciously.

Introducing DK versions of Ravelston and Stockbridge

We’ve just released DK gauge versions of my popular Stockbridge and Ravelston patterns, which were originally published for a fingering weight yarn.They’re essentially designed around the same basic construction and with a similar fit, Stockbridge is a cardigan and Ravelston a pullover.  My goal with both is that they’ll be staple patterns you can use to build your handknit wardrobe, the kind of basic patterns that work for lots of different looks.

Lightweight cowls

Lightweight cowls are the perfect alternative to a shawl or scarf when you want to be able to toss something on quickly and know it will stay in place. I’ve really enjoyed designing them over the last few years and now have a few options to fit different styles.
