I'm happy to announce the release of Finley; a scarf that combines intarsia, stranded (color work), and locked floats. It's the type of project that I teach in my stranded intarsia class which I'll be leading again at Vogue Knitting Live in NYC in January.
It's no secret that I love the concept of locked floats. The secured "reverse" of stranded knitting looks so beautiful. It means no chance of snagging, and also makes for a more even tension throughout the piece. Want to give Finley a go? It's available via Ravelry now as a digital download, and the print pattern will soon be available for wholesale distribution through Deep South Fibers.
Here's hoping you have a beautiful rest of the week. I'm heading to Reno on Saturday to visit with the fun folks at Jimmy Beans Wool! I'll be there with a mini trunk show of the pieces from my book, and I'll also be signing copies of Urban Knit Collection as well. If you're in the area, be sure to drop by and say HI!
