…..but I have finally managed a design of my own. This is Bowland and I’m ridiculously proud of it. It is knit in Tall Yarns Soliloquy Sock Lace in the “To be” shade and I used about 3/4 of a 600yd skein.
Tempting as it would have been to accept help from the knitting fairy, I was absolutely determined not to wimp out that way. Instead I turned to the most unlikely of assistants – my husband Dave. Turns out his head for maths makes light work of short row calculations.
Bowland combines the ease of garter stitch with the spice of lace. Short rows adding extra width make this very comfortable to wear too.
I am really hoping to have this ready for release within the next few weeks and would absolutely love to see more Bowlands out there. Don’t hesitate to give me a nudge if I am slow to deliver.
Oh, and I must to say a huge thank you to my gorgeous model, Saskia. She was a real pro at very short notice!
