Semilla

The Semilla pullover is a basic seed stitch pullover with easy eyelet accents evenly spaced throughout the body. The eyelet accents are also added as a decorative detail on the sleeve cuffs. The seed stitch is rhythmic to work and the eyelets create a fun break in the knitting. With an attractive boat neck and an easy fit throughout, Semilla can be worn alone or easily layered.

Mollis Shawl

The Mollis shawl is named for the latin translation of “soft” or “tender”. A few months ago I had driven south of Charleston to a small town in Beaufort, SC as they are home to the closest yarn store that I could visit. While I was browsing the shelves I came across Wool Addicts’ Water (by Lang Yarns) in a soft, muted rose-pink color. In March, we are planning an epic ski vacation in European in the Alps of France, Switzerland, and Italy. I knew I wanted to create a shawl that would work great for the après lifestyle in the early evenings but that would be functional and keep me warm as well. And thus the Mollis shawl was born.

Illud Shawl

The Illud Shawl has to be one of the easiest things I have ever made. For 90% of this project you are doing the same thing every row in beautiful, mindless garter stitch. The beauty of this design lies in the 2-ply cashmere. It is simultaneously soft & sharp. The cashmere blurs the stitches a bit but the picot bind off adds a little bit of crispness to it. The name “Illud” comes from the latin translation of points - a name that is cool & sophisticated, just like the shawl.

Gorgette Shawl

The Gorgette shawl provides a great introduction to shawl knitting. The stockinette stitch body is rhythmic and quickly becomes a mindless project suitable for travel or just something to pick up casually in free moments. The lace edging is worked after the crescent shawl is completed and may pose a challenge for the newest of knitters, but can be quickly mastered!

Captain

I can't believe it is already mid July, this summer is flying by! Over the past few months I have been on a few whirlwind trips from Charleston to Israel to LA and back again. I don't know about you, but the first thing I think about before a trip is which knitting project I am going to take with me. Sometimes it's impossible for me to make a choice so I end up taking a few with me. If you ask me, it's better to have too much yarn than not enough!
