While I've Been Busy . . .

During the winter I spend a lot of time on decision making, planning and dyeing.  It's a time to confirm show dates, select new yarns and patterns, restock inventory and add new colorways.   

The spring show season is right around the corner, and the pieces are coming together.  I've mentioned before that I have some wonderful friends who pitch in and knit booth samples.  They work like knitting elves, and they've been busy. 

Belle Nuit is the latest addition to the collection.

I've wanted to add a beaded shawl for quite some time.

I considered several options but couldn't make a decision.

Then I turned to Sivia Harding, the queen of beads and knitting.

Belle Nuit caught my eye.  I took a break to let the idea marinate, but I kept coming back to it.  The decision was made.

This shawl is knit with Mavis, colorway Perplexed.

Mavis is a blend of Superwash Merino and Tussah Silk.  It will be listed on the website soon.

Belle Nuit will be available as a kit this spring.

Beads, silk, elegance.
