What with viruses (does anyone use the plural viri?) and near-constant migraines for the past week, I’ve been a little out of the loop. Maybe more than a little, if we’re being honest. Well, logged into ravelry and noticed another design had been added to my designer profile:
The Buttoned Up in Lace Shrug from Creative Knitting, Summer 2013. This design was a source of pride at the time (not that I could talk about it), because it utilizes three traditional reversible lace patterns (two are Madeira and one is Shetland), worked on a garter ground with two sets of knitted-on button bands so the “shrug” can be worn in several ways as different garments. Which is why I was a little disappointed to see it only modeled as a shrug (love the photos, though, they did a fantastic job styling!).
Good thing I snapped some pictures on Gertrude before sending it in, eh?
For other ideas, see my ravelry notebook listing. The yarn was Imperial Yarn’s Tracie in 114 Dusty Rose. Loved the color and the yarn – and currently have quite a bit stashed. The buttons are antique shell lovelies from my grandmother’s stash.
In other news, several patterns are imminently forthcoming from Rose City Knits. Keep an eye out!
