Exclusive Release: Lupine at The Fiber Gallery!

lupinerelease lupinerelease2

Seattle-area folks, the Lupine shawl pattern is hot off the presses and now available exclusively at The Fiber Gallery! The original sample is also at the shop for the month of August, so feel free to come on down and pet it. And for non-local folks, the pattern will be available for purchase from my Ravelry store starting September 4th.

The original is knit up in one skein of Malabrigo Mechita (which I highly recommend if you haven't tried it already!) but it's a great fit for Tosh Merino Light and other variegated or tonal hand-dyes as well. I have a whole bin dedicated to unicorn barf yarns in my stash - which are so beautiful, but can be absolutely confounding when it comes time to knit them up! - but this pattern has played very nicely with even the wildest of variegated yarns so far.

Thanks in abundance to my amazing test knitters, and to everyone who has squished the love button on Ravelry even before the pattern was released! I can't wait to see your versions knit up - please feel free to tag me on instagram @cory.ellen, or pop on over to the indie.knits Ravelry group to share!

Happy Wednesday, friends!

This is such a pretty design! I love all the hand-painted variegated yarns, but like you said, they can sometimes be so frustrating to work into a design. And I am a super fan of that beautiful bind off you used. Congrats on the great release.
