Rivers run through the desert here: the Truckee, the Carson, the Walker. And the first time you come upon one, it’s like finding a treasure: a private oasis of greenery and sparkling water hidden away just for your eyes, the water bubbling and rippling over rocks and washing down into deep pools.
This wrap, with its rippling stitch patterns and bubbling spine of increases, pays homage to the water in this beautiful part of the world. Worked in lovely soft fingering weight yarn and two colors of blue, River Walk stretches your skills with lace (some worked on both right and wrong sides), cabled increases, and wave patterns.
Welcome to year three of my subscription series! The idea for my first ebook subscription (year one: the pleiades) was born in 2010 while reading posts on Ravelry: people knitting 10 shawls in 2010. I decided to design and knit 10 shawls that year, and at the time I released my first subscription, I had 7 left to do. I made my goal that year, so the next year I was back for more. Today though, I have realized that I simply love doing these subscriptions so much, I won’t even pretend that there’s any other reason to do them! The number 7 is one of my favorites, and I like including the extra accessories. So here comes year three!
I am still addicted to small shawls using sock yarn and my sock yarn stash is still growing. And growing. It seems to be bigger every day! And I must admit, I love feeding it. This year’s subscription will celebrate the beauty of my new home in northern Nevada, and Jimmy Beans Wool is celebrating with me! Stay tuned for all sorts of good fun from both of us as we take you on a tour through this gorgeous area!
The patterns for this eBook will be delivered to subscribers within a subscription period ending June 30, 2013. There is no specific delivery time for each pattern, but look for the first pattern in late August of 2012. All patterns will have charts and written instructions, and you will be able to make them out of one skein of sock yarn or an amount of sock yarn comparable to that needed for a pair of socks. Some will be two colors, and one is even three! But you won’t need more than one skein of any color. There will be a few little extras sprinkled throughout and all patterns will be available to purchase separately!
Are you ready? Happy knitting!
