I am so excited about my newest pattern, the Ballerina Shawl knit up in 455 yards of Knitted Wit's Featherweight yarn! The incredible photography was made possible by Patrick Hough with sincere thanks to Theresa Knudson, Principal Dancer, Holly Gold, Event Producer, and Lois Ellyn, Artistic Director, Nouveau Chamber Ballet, Fullerton, CA.

The Ballerina pattern will be available for sale first during my talk at K2tog in Albany, Ca on Wednesday evening and throughout the weekend during the Stitches West Marketplace. Digital copies will go on sale next week.

I'll be out of the office starting today through next Tuesday. If you have a pattern question please visit my group on ravelry or my facebook page. I'll be tweeting about the event all weekend, you may follow me on twitter here.

    Beautiful I love it. I’ve just taken a lace class so maybe something like this won’t scare the bejeezus out of me( i’ve had bad experiences trying to do lace in the past). Your pictures of the shawl with a dancer are fantastic great way to get it out there!
