Posts Tagged ‘Silk Mist’

It’s been a while since my last blog.  I have been over at the TCJ Inspiration Place Blog these days.

Full collection gridI have very exciting news that I have to share with you.  Last week, August 17th, 2016 I launched my first 7 piece mini collection publication!!  I have been working on it for the past year and I am thrilled about it, and I know you will be too!

The Crafty Jacaklope: Vol. 01 ~ YARN

The_Crafty_Jackalope_Volume_01_YARN

The collection consists of 6 original pieces and the Portobello Cowl which I re branded/redesigned for SweetGeorgia yarn.  All the pieces in the collection feature SweetGeorgia Yarns; the yarn inspired the collection!

Royal_Flounce_Shawl_The_Crafty_Jackalope_3_sized

Royal Flounce Shawl is a lace-on-lace creation.  The way I wrote the pattern is in easy to follow sections.  One of my test knitters had never knit lace or a shawl before, when she asked me if she could test this design I said, “of course!”  She made it though smoothly, and I think that is a great testament!  I used SweetGeorgia Cashlux Spark and Silk Fog.

Color_Fade_Shawl_The_Crafty_Jackalope_2_sized

Color Fade Shawl is a great knit.  The best part is switching between colors and the easy to knit rhythmical pattern.  Use either an Ombré yarn or contrasting stripes, both transition nicely! This project is a great stash buster project (abut 105 yards per color).  For this shawl, I used SweetGeorgia Party of Five Gradient Mini Skeins.

Bandana Rocks…well, rocks!  This is such a fun piece, to make AND to wear!!  With short rows, bobbles and slipped stitches, you wont get bored knitting this piece!  I used SweetGeorgia Superwash Six.

Honey_Stone_Cowl_Fingerless_gloves_The_Crafty_Jackalope_10_sized

Honey Stone Cowl & Fingerless Gloves is a gorgeous set.  The Honeycomb pattern gives these pieces some interest while showing off the texture of the yarn beautifully. Knit with SweetGeorgia Tough Love Sock & Silk Mist.

Ribbon_Rock_Cowl_The_Crafty_Jackalope_6_sized

River Rock Cowl is the must-have-piece of the season.  Perfect for doubling or keeping full length, this cowl is full for texture and we love the stripes! The possibility of color combos is endless!  Knit with SweetGeorgia Superwash Worsted & Trinity Worsted.
