The freshly revamped and rereleased pattern for Colophon is now up on ravelry. Pics first, then info, but do read on because I've got yarn to give away too! I know these are simple little bits of knitting, but I admit I'm rather taken with them. They work in any sock or fingering weight yarn and need shockingly little yardage. The sample shown here used 125 yards of Space Cadet Creations' Ester (shown here in a custom club colorway, but if you are looking for a purple, their Plume is smashing and will fill all your purple needs). In addition [...]
Zip zoom zowie. I swear that took no time at all. It took no time, and holy smokes is it cute, especially after a bit of a block. See? The yarn is Space Cadet Creations' Ester, and it is a delight to work with. It's a little skinnier than what I like for socks (my fondness for fat sock yarn is well documented), but it's lovely for projects like this.

And if you've been here for a very long time and have an alarmingly good memory, you may recognize the pattern as a very old one of mine, Colophon. That is not an accident. You see, one of my big (alarmingly big...possibly verging into the realm of daunting) projects this [...]
I got overly ambitious and went ahead and released these early! These are simple and fun fingerless mitts designed to use up leftover bits of sock yarn. The airy pattern makes the most of limited quantities of yarn, and the ribbing makes for a very stretchy finished product. These are prefect for gift knitting! The pattern is for sale here, but until the end of the month (11:59 pm eastern time September 30th 2009) it will also be available for free if you buy another of my patterns! To claim it, just buy another pattern and forward a copy of [...]
