new things.

Whoosh. That's the sound of fall entering and carrying on at break-neck speed.

It's been a whirlwind around here, lately, making it tricky to find time to write.  But I wanted to fill you in on a few new patterns available:

The Laburnum Road Scarf - by Katherine Matthews,



the Waterlily Shawl,



a Mystery Shawl KAL pattern - clue #1!  This one will be released as a series of three clues, via Ennea Collective.  Join the spin-along and knit-along on Ravelry!  As a bonus for Issue 6, publishing very soon, Anne and I spun the same fibre without comparison during the process.  We managed to come up with very different yarns.  The KAL for Anne's yarn will be a nifty sock pattern, available shortly.



and......

here is my version of the Posies Shawl - by Anne Podlesak, a very fun knit!



We have a new Ennea Collective issue publishing  very soon.  It's always exciting to see a new issue published.

Next week, I am off to New Mexico to hang out with Anne.  Hopefully there will be some breathing time involved, but I'm very excited.  It's been about 8 years since I've traveled anywhere without boys in tow.

Earlier this month Oceanwind Knits was at the KW Knitters Fair with Katherine Matthews of Purldiving.  Thanks to everyone who popped in to say hi!

New yarns at Oceanwind Knits:  hand-dyed Merino iii (worsted weight)



and Merino One Lace (single ply).



More goodies will be added to Oceanwind Knits over the coming days.

And, whoosh!  Back to work for me.
