Icarus Shawl pattern Available! and SALE!

A few of housecleaning bits:

  1. Thought you all might like to know, that the Icarus Shawl pattern is FINALLY available as a download! You can find more information here as it is now in the shop. The link has also been added to the sidebar under “Design Portfolio”. I understand that issue of Interweave has become harder to get a copy of, so I thought I’d better get it out sooner rather than later.
  2. I’m all set to start selling paper patterns to yarn stores, so if you have a yarn store near you that you think would like to carry them, please send me an e-mail with their contact info. I’ll be making up brochures to send out.

As you can see from the ticker, winter is dragging on. I keep thinking to the new beginnings of spring, but they seem so far away. So I’ve been thinking about January and New Years. Not only is it Cara‘s birthday (go give her some love, she could use it), but it’s the start of a new year, and with the New Year should come new beginnings, no?

So in honor of the new year and the promise it brings, I’m having a sale. From now until the 15th of December, you can get 10% off all the patterns in my store except the new Woven Cable Scarf & Wrap. To help ward off the January Blues, buy something nice for yourself and start it on January 1st to make yourself happy :) Click through to the store (link also in the sidebar with the 4-square logo) Enter the code JANBLUES in the discount box during checkout and get the 10% discount.

Thanks for the lovely response to the Woven Cable Scarf & Wrap :) It was a lot of fun to knit, even though it has a lot of ribbing.

I’ve filled another spindle full of the BFL! Probably another one, plus maybe a partial and I’ll be done with it! Then on to knitting SOCKS! I can’t tell you how excited I am to be knitting something with my own handspun!

And the book proposals have been accepted, so as soon as I get yarn, I’ll be working on those. It might make for very sketchy photos of WIPs, but I’ll try to keep things interesting here.

Have a great weekend!

p.s. Go give Margene some love too. Her lovely dog Murphy has passed on. I know she’ll miss him. He was sick though, so at least now he’s not suffering.


  • DO NOT MISS Claudia‘s finished Icarus all blocked and lovely! I think I may have to get some of that Sundara-dyed silk! What a fabulous birthday present to herself!
  • Elizabeth finished her Icarus as well! And get this, she SPUN that yarn herself!

    Oh man, this cold is just dragging on! I’m trying not to think about spring. Instead I’m trying to envelope myself fully in whatever is right in front of me in an effort to become more fully aware. I don’t know if it’s working.

    more congratulations on the contract – having an actual book, that can be found in a library or a bookstore, is amazing.

    Hi Marsha, the Icarus shawl is $6.00 and can be purchased here. This post was imported from my old site MANY years ago.
