The Winter 2014 Issue of Knitty is up, and ModeKnit Yarn was used to knit a featured pattern!
A few months back we received a request for yarn support. We sent off some ModeSock to New York to designer Joyce Fassbender, and we waited to see what would be created. Would it be socks? Or a cowl? Perhaps some gloves? Or something else?
It’s something else, that’s for sure!
It’s a shawl. A stunning lace shawlette inspired by childhood walks on the beach, combing for treasures. Comber was knit in both Flow and our Semi-Precious hand-painted yarn. We love each version but we admit to being just a little bit obsessed with the Flow shawl. Which one is YOUR favorite? (Click on each picture to make larger.)
We love the gradient shading in the Flow version of the shawl. The flow from dark to light to dark and back to light reflect the waves of Joyce’s childhood beach inspiration. We also love the all-over dark-to-light effect in the hand-painted version. Such a pretty, pretty shawl!
In other news, we have some lovely yarn up on our SALE page! There is some pretty MCN in Flow that would make a great Comber shawlette (just sayin’), and at a 25% discount! Pop over and check out the sale yarns!
