It's happening!

I'm so excited to let you know that I'm included in the newest installment of the "60 Quick" books from Sixth and Spring: "60 Quick Luxury Knits." I've had my first looks at the other projects in the book and I'm definitely in great company, some very beautiful projects have been selected and mine is one of them.

Introducing the Solid and Stripes Infinity Scarf.

It's knit with Cascade Yarns Venezia Sport in two colors. The denim blue and spring green are a bright and cheerful mix of colors but I could imagine this in so many other great color combinations: think school colors or black and white or monochrome or one self-striping and one solid or even variegated. It's knit in the round, a long tube, and then grafted together for a seamless tube. And the intarsia section (switching from one color to the other) is so simple you will hardly need to keep your pattern handy once you get started.

This is a super exciting time for me and everyone (okay, it's just me) at Rodeo Knits. "60 Quick Luxury Knits" will be released in August and I just learned last week that I'll be included in another exciting project. Of course, I can't talk about it yet because, well, mainly I don't know much but as soon as I do/can, I'll post here first. Actually, probably on Twitter first but then here. Definitely.

If you want your own copy of "60 Quick Luxury Knits", check out your local yarn store or, if you want, you can order from Amazon here: 60 Quick Luxury Knits: Easy, Elegant Projects for Every Day in the Venezia Collection from Cascade Yarns® (60 Quick Knits Collection). (Side note, if you order by clicking that link, I get a little tiny bit of thank-you from Amazon.)

Happy knitting!
