Spring

Tuesday, March 11th, 2008 18 comments


You wouldn’t know it from the size of the snowbank in front of my house, but spring is here.

I hope you like it. And if you feel so inclined to visit the shop, use ‘knittyspring08′ until the 31st in order to save 15%.

ETA: I can’t believe how many have cast on already! I have a tip for anyone who wants loose bind off edges: use the stem stitch method instead of the conventional bind off, taking care to keep your stitches far enough apart from one another. It’ll be a much better match to a loose long tail cast on.

    WOW! What is that you are knitting? What are you knitting it with? Great site! Great projects! Great book!

    I love the pattern. Its been a million years since I knit a scarf, but I have some handspun that seems ideal for your new pattern.

    thanks for the new knitting notification!

    The patterns in Knitty are great but this issue seems better than ever… especially with your pattern! I wonder how it would look in Handmaiden Silken… I can’t wait to try it!

    I LOVE this scarf! I am a huge fan of spring scarves, as Minnesota spring days tend to suddenly slap one about the neck and face with unnecessarily chilly breezes. I want one in black and one in hot pink and maybe one in lavender….

    Oh that is beautiful! I want to cast it on now now now… (and I happen to have tons of sock yarn from a certain someone thats just “dyeing” to be used)

    I believe that this is going to be my first Knitty project ever!
    It is so beautiful; I have a hank of Malabrigo laceweight, and can’t wait to see the effect!!!

    I LOVE your new scarf pattern in Knitty, it’s gorgeous, and looks so wearable! It’s in my queue on Ravelry, for sure….

    That’s a beautiful scarf, Veronik.

    This is DEFINITELY one I want to make. (Geez, I’ve got a lot of your stuff in my queue!) I’ve been eyeing those wallpaper mittens too, so thanks for the shop code! I might just get them! :)

    It was immediately added to my queue. Absolutely gorgeous. And I am a total Sartorialist fan – I totally agree with what you wrote. So chic.

    Truly gorgeous. Saw it on Knitty. I am familiar with the Sartorialist. I’ll be making one of these – for sure. Good work.

    wow, what a beautiful scarf pattern you have created! I just had to come over and congratulate you! I think I’m going to have to cast on for this….

    V, this is truly lovely. Too bad I won’t be able to knit one of my own, as my brain has completely short-circuited. (If anyone wishes to make one for me, just drop me a line. Thank you.)

    I love the design of the scarf and it´s really nice to make! Thankyou for a great pattern!

    Wow, the scarf is gorgeous, and so is the model! I am a freelance casting associate for commercials and think that Isabella Geddes is outrageously beautiful! I bet she is quite photogenic too. Does she do any acting?

    your pattern is lovely. i need to find yarn for this. i haven’t wanted to knit a scarf in a looong time.

    It was the one Spring Knitty pattern that I went “ACK! Total gorgessity!!” and I hope to cast it on soon.
