Early Mist

My new design for Artesano has been published. Early Mist is a stole knitted in Manos del Uruguay Serena and is part of a collection of easy/intermediate patterns using just a few skeins of yarn available as a pattern booklet.
Early Mist features an easy zig zag lace pattern which actually consists of only 4 pattern rows. It really is very easy if you know basic lace skills (yarn over/yarn forward, k2tog, ssk).
If you've not tried Serena, I highly recommend it. It's so soft and light and gorgeous to knit with and the new colours about to launch are to die for.
This pattern is available from Ravelry and I expect it'll be available from your local UK/European Manos del Uruguay/Artesano stockists. The e-book with all the 5 patterns in the collection is only £3.50.
Artesano have gone for the 'light as air' photos again which I just love.
I didn't manage to get any pics before I sent it off but I did get a pic of it blocking.

A big thank you to Leni for knitting this sample for me. Leni is one of my new sample knitters and is doing a great job. She's an amazing spinner too.

I'm still taking sign ups for my new online Continental Knitting Course starting on Thursday. You can go through the lessons at your own pace & you'll have indefinite access to the course material. There's more about the course in the post below.
