summer preview

I’m so excited to see this sneak peek of the summer Interweave Knits issue. The Lace Chuppah I designed looks so pretty!

Edited to add: The pattern is now available as a PDF download from the Knitting Daily online store.

socks and flowers

socks and flowers, originally uploaded by kat coyle.

I love these flowers! The socks aren't bad but next to the flowers they pale. Ah well, can't beat Mother Nature. I just found out that the flower is a type of cactus: Epiphyllum. I've been growing it for years from a clipping. The flowers only bloom once a year and each flower only lives a couple of days.
The socks are Child's First Sock from Knitting Vintage Socks by Nancy Bush.

fun knitting

I bought a fun book of knitting patterns, Knit 2 Together by Tracey Ullman and Mel Clark. What can I say; I have to make those Witches Britches. So I am. Eek! Striped of course.
I haven’t worn shorts in over ten years, so I’m not sure if I’ll wear these. That’s why I sketched them to see if I’ll wear them. Ha ha ha. Hiding underneath the striped fabric is the part of the sketch where Felix is pulling me.
The style is a lot like the skirts I knit, which is why I like them and think there’s a chance I’ll actually wear them. I’ve lengthened the leg from 10” to 15”.
Stripe knitting is my current love so they have to be striped and striped britches are very witchy. They're worked in yarn from my stash, in two shades of Naturelle Cotton. I’m not crazy about the colors but striping them is giving them a new life that is just plain fun.
