If you put three of my patterns in your cart for purchase, the fourth pattern will be free.

Quindici is an interesting and relaxing boomerang shawl that consists of 15 segments (quindici is Italian for 15), with textured, seed, slipped and lattice stitches. Each segment is a memory souvenir from a special trip to Italy with my daughter this summer. The first 8 segment memories can be viewed here.

Cut ends are minimized by doing some of the adjacent segments without changing colors. The Magpie Swanky Sock yields a a phenomenal drape and the yarn will flow off your fingers like buttah while knitting. I suggest 2 neutrals and either a variegated or bright contrast color.

The pattern was introduced at Stitches South and in the sidebar you can see some color combinations that people bought at the Magpie booth.

No fair laughing at the pictures of me. There was a snarky tween taking them while her brother was shooting a water pistol at her ear from the side. If it looks like I’m going to strangle one of them, well, let’s just say that is pretty accurate.
