Patterns For Sale

 With some help from my friends, I've been able to publish patterns on Ravelry, these four just now.  Reminds me of the Beatles' song, "I get by with a little help from my friends"...

These first two scarves were designed to be featured at next weekends Black Sheep Gathering in Eugene, Oregon, by Art by Eve.  She creates this wonderful, drapey fiber of baby Alpaca and Silk, that is meant to be cherished by it's wearer.  The purple one is listed in my designs on Ravelry as Luxury Scarf and the pink is Circular scarf.     Just for your knowledge, the pink one is easier as the pattern is only worked every fourth row.  The purple is knitted ends first then the center from one end to the other.

These last two designs were done for Wynona Studios, in Oregon City, Oregon, with their participation in the Rose City Yarn Crawl. This years them was the areas bridges.  The  Blushing Bride Fingerless Mitts were part of four items that were designed this year based on the wedding that took place at the opening of the local bridge, the bride from one side and the groom from the other.

The bag is from last years Yarn Crawl, the theme of which was the local flora.  The Dahlia bag is inspired of the local Dahlia Festival that takes place at the end of August each year. If you can find this on Ravelry you'll be able to find it as well.

I'm considering also adding the first project I designed for the yarn crawl and a hat for another shop of this years crawl.  Meantime, back to work designing for Oregon Flock and Fiber festival.  Thank you to JJ at Wynona Studios for encouraging me to be an official designer, and Delia for her help creating the beautiful files people will be able to download.  To both of you I know I cannot say 'thank you' enough, but let's pretend it is anyway. For now.

Happy Knitting!
