When Woolgirl asked me to design a capelet inspired by Nathaniel Hawthorne’s novel, The Scarlet Letter, I was intrigued by the idea of interpreting a Romantic novel in a knit that would be wearable and relevant to modern knitters.

When Miss Babs asked me to design a shawlette with an island theme for her new knitting club, I searched many images for inspiration. The most beautiful image that I found of the Seychelles shows an island cove with a pristine beach and incredibly blue ocean waves rushing to the shore. The waves are topped with frothy white crests and sparkle i...

When I first saw this beautiful yarn, hand dyed by Miss Babs, I wanted to create a lace pattern with plenty of solid areas allowing the gorgeous yarn to shine.

Thaw makes the most of one-of-a-kind hand painted yarns by allowing their brilliant colors to take center stage. As stunning as these yarns are, they are often difficult to work with because the pooling of colors can obscure a stitch pattern. To avoid this problem, Thaw is worked primarily in a simple stockinette stitch.
