sea to sky revisited





I've been on that Sea to Sky Highway again! No, not really but I have knitted up another version of my new Sea to Sky hat pattern. Firstly I wanted to triple (and then some) check my pattern writing but also to see how it looks in a different colour way, with a different yarn. You can never go wrong with Madelinetosh and this Pashmina Worsted, in Silver Fox, is proving itself perfect for the job. It really shows off the stitch definition to the max. Can you see the motion of the sea and the birds flocking between the ocean and mountain range? I am so excited to say the pattern is now live in my Ravelry store so please, do check it out and let me know what you think?

Ooh, before I forget. Are you knitty/yarny types aware of Unwind Brighton? In case you aren't, you really need to know this. Dani of Lioness Arts is organising a knitting festival over the weekend of 12-13 July. She has put together the most amazing set of classes to be taught by a prestige selection of designers, there will be talks to attend and a 'marketplace' (note to start saving the pennies). I am so excited about this because it so happens I shall be in the UK then and have just booked myself onto a couple of the classes. Do let me know if you're planning on being in Brighton that weekend, it would be fun to catch up with you!

Now, what else to tell. Ah well, to be honest life is pretty sedate at the moment and not much activity has occurred so far this year. I have only just managed to shake off the lurgy that has bothered me since Christmas and now, unfortunately, the Model has succumbed. That's exciting isn't it? So go on then, what are you up to?

  1. Congrats on your second pattern Kate, you're becoming quite the knitwear designer !! :) It's a very clever design, I love the rib!
    Nothing much exciting here either, except that we have sunshine today which makes a lovely change from rain!!!

  4. Late January and early February are a collection of low sunlight days that do test our energy levels.

    Playing around with various forms of creative media can bring a bit of inner sunlight to us. Thank you for the link to the Unwind Brighton link. Sounds like fun, and I know Brighton is a very interesting place to visit.

    Please do keep us updated on the Unwind Brighton offerings.

    Now...back to one or the other of my knitting projects. More snow due in NYC this weekend.

    Cheers!

  6. I adore the subtle patterning of this hat, and you're right the yarn is perfect. You look so pretty.

  7. Just catching up here. I love the cardigan in your last post - their yarn is amazing isn't it - and this new version of Sea to Sky is stunning. I'm working on something hatty of my own at the moment but then, I think, I might rather like to knit one of these for me :D

  8. So lovely to come across your blog, totally by chance, when looking at Merchant & Mills patterns and pictures. I lived in Canada many years ago and have a lovely story that sustains me to this day many years later and I love catching any glimpses of that lovely land. Combine that with your gorgeous craftiness, I'm hooked!
