In the New Year I’m going to be taking all my patterns offline for an extended period so I can re-do layouts, photography, some samples and reorganise my store to take into account new tax laws applicable in the EU from 1st January.
The patterns won’t be available for quite a while so if you want to grab anything do so now!
All patterns are 25% off until midnight on 26th December (no coupon needed) after which they will be deactivated for a while. Here’s the store: http://www.ravelry.com/stores/patricia-martin-designs
Feel free to spread the word**
This shawl pattern prints over 5 pages with two photos and 4 charts.
The sample in the pattern photos uses Wollmeise 100% Superwash (approx. 340 yards) for the main part of the shawl and Yarn Yard Clan (approx 160 yards) for the ruffled border.
The name comes from my sister J who is one of the few people in my family who can wear red successfully. The Wollmeise yarn seemed like a very J colour so I thought this should have a J related name. When I was growing up my sisters were very influential and pretty much brought me up. One of the life lessons J taught me was that making personal comments about people was wrong and spiteful something that I try (and sometimes fail) to bear in mind in adult life. So this one is my J shawl and might, just might, be the first in a series of sisterly inspired shawls.
