Pattern RollCall: The Knits You Loved at HSYP!

At HomeSpun Yarn Party, we had finished two pieces that got so many comments, so many questions, so many compliments, that I knew they had to be showcased in a Pattern Rollcall!

Paint the Sky

The first was the Paint the Sky wrap by Susan Wolcott of Y2Knit, a beautiful rectangular scarf with delicate yarn overs that rise up the length of it like bubbles through water.  Knit in a semi-solid yarn, the pattern would really shine, but done in a varigated yarn, it becomes an absolute gorgeous riot of colour.

We knit ours in one skein of Lucina yarn in a gentle pink-and-purple colourway called Sweet Dreams, and it was gorgeous!  But it would look stunning in any of these yarns that have just gone in the shop:

The second finished piece that got so much attention was the Fleurdelise One Skein Triangle Shawl by Michelle Miller of Fickle Knitter Designs.

This was knit for me by my friend Natalie (as my birthday present!) using one skein of Lucina in SouthEasterly,  a yarn that is varigated but all without a great deal of contrast in the colours.  With a more complicated lace pattern like this, it often works best to use a yarn that’s either semi-solid or has a simpler change of colours.  Personally, I’d love to see how it comes out in two of our most popular colourways, Sugared Violets and Beguile.

You can see why these patterns got so much attention at HSYP, can’t you?  So beautiful!
