Shawls, shawls, shawls!

In August I started my Thunderstruck Mystery KAL but couldn't show a photo - here is the finished shawl at last!

In September, the secret pattern for Club Awesome was released featuring Dragonfly Fibers Pixie. It is still exclusive to the club but will become available to everyone in March 2014.

Finally, for October I've released Edge, and I can show it to you Right Away, LOL!

I know I know - garter stitch all over the place! But I have two more in the works for this year and neither one is in garter! Both were actually inspired by all the swatching I did for Pebble last spring. I had a panicky moment when I couldn't find that looooong swatch I did -
but I did find it and also the directions for the stitch pattern that I made up and want to use for one of those shawls. There are a few sweaters in the pipeline ahead of them, but I'm hoping to get them released before the end of the year. (Lots of downtime waiting for sweater test knits to be completed!)
