Knitting Pattern for Fiona, the fly

Fiona, the fly
Fiona, is an adorable fly, approximately 5.5" / 15 cm long.

She is knitted in the rounds, with two very big eyes and legs and proboscis created of I-cords. Two wings are knitted separately and sewn on.
Don't like flies? Use black and yellow stripes to create an adorable bumblebee placing the proboscis instead on her face on her other end, thus creating the stinger.
The pattern is available for purchase in my Ravelry store or by clicking on this button:

Gift-a-long 2015


I have missed the Gift a long activities in 2013, because I was busy working on my thesis. But I managed to participate in 2014.
And I am participating again in Gift-a-long 2015.

It is an awesome collaboration between many independent designers and it is just about to start.
Gift a long is a collective gathering of more than  300 knitwear designers, and has many fantastic activities.

It started on Thursday, November 19th with a sale period of thousands of knitting patterns offered on Ravelry by the participating designers.

After the sale period is over the gift a long continues with KAL, fun games, and prices to win every day.

You should try it if you are on Ravelry by visiting the Indie Design Gift-a-long Group.
It introduces you to new designers, techniques, and you may win something fabulous, learn and try something new and perhaps you may meet even new friends (even if only virtual).

Some important dates and times:
The sale period runs Thursday November 19th 8pm (US-EST) through Friday November 27 at 11:59 pm (US-EST).
Discount is 25% off.

Knitting Pattern for Autumnal Equinox Blanket

Autumnal Equinox Blanket
I have been fascinated by the simplicity of old quilts and the way small pieces are sewn together to create larger pieces.
This Autumnal Equinox Blanket was inspired by the process of sewing triangles  together to create squares.

This particular baby blanket uses 10 skeins of Cascade Superwash Sports Multis in Browns.
The blanket is knitted in one piece, with I-cord attached along the edge to create a nice finish.
Size: Square with 33"/ 84 cm long sides.

The pattern is free and available in my Ravelry store or by clicking on this button:
