In case you didn’t notice, my very first third-party published pattern was released today in Knitty! I am beyond excited about it! From the front page, click on patterns and then find mine – Lilah. But be sure to check out all the other fantastic designs in this month’s issue as well! I really like the Rivercat Socks and Julia. And Verdant is very intriguing, too!
Designing this shawl was an absolute joy from beginning to end. I had what I wanted pictured in my head, and when I couldn’t find an existing pattern that fit what I wanted I decided to take the plunge and design it myself. It took a few swatches and several iterations of charts before the design started to come together. Once I had the design tweaked to my satisfaction, I knit all three version in record time – and truly enjoyed knitting each one – but especially spinning the yarn and knitting the large handspun version.

This is the perfect expression of how I know you to be… you see something, and you bring it into being. I cannot express how happy I am for you, and proud of this accomplishment!
It is beautiful. Congratulations. I know you are walking on air—and you should be.
Thank you, Jane!
the bi-color is a stroke of genius. Straight to my (very long) queue it goes 🙂
Thank you so much, Beth!
It is a beautiful pattern and has landed on my Rav queue. Thank you for sharing it!
You’re very welcome!
Was finally back on Knitty today, and catching up. Read Lilah pattern, and my jaw dropped. This is gorgeous! I must knit one. (after the socks I’m working on, and the birthday scarf, and….) I love the feathers. Maybe I’ll feel like I’ve got an angel hug like Lilah’s Noah! But my favorite Archangel was either Gabriel or Gaaron 🙂
So glad you like it!!
Yes, I have to say my favorite Archangel is Gabriel. Maybe because he was the first one I was introduced to. Or because I love the Rachel/Gabriel story so much. But the Gaaron/Susannah story is one of my favorites, too!
