Mystic Sunset KAL

On June 28, 2016, in KAL, lace, Mystic Sunset, pattern, shawl, by Anna

IMG_0850New Mystery KAL for the summer of 2016.

The golden yellow sun grows heavy after a long day and sinks lower and lower. It lingers on the horizon and then dips below, leaving the sky a brilliant cascade of colours – orange to red, fading to pink and into a deep purple night sky.

Mystic Sunset pairs a tangerine to ultraviolet gradient set with a solid colour to create a spectacular sunset shawl in which to wrap yourself.

More Love

On June 16, 2016, in fingerless mitts, gloves, More Love, pattern, by Anna

We need more love in the world. After one more mass shooting, one more senseless display of hate – this time in Orlando, FL – I’d like to make this pattern available to spread the love and in show of support for the LGBT community.


This glove-design is inspired by the Aroha hat by Kelly Brooker of Pekapeka. If you want to knit a matching hat, make sure to check out her pattern.

1 skein of Classic Wool DK Superwash from Paton (100% wool – 125 yds/114 m per 50 g) or similar yarn
approx 10 m each of 6 different colours of fingering weight yarn for the hearts
4.0 mm (US 6) needles
tapestry needle

The More Love pattern is available here for $3.00.
