In Greek mythology, a phoenix is a long-lived bird that cyclically regenerates or is otherwise born again. A phoenix obtains new life by arising from the ashes of its predecessor.

Sometimes, that’s how I feel about these beautiful hand-dyed skeins. I see them, fall in love, bring them home… where they waste away waiting for a project that will work for its busy variegation. Thankfully, that hand dyed yarn will now arise from the ashes to be reborn.

Prefer to use your scraps? Yardage for each section has been included, so you can give life so some of those mini’s hanging around.

From the Ashes is worked flat, and the pattern consists of written directions. The design includes detailed instructions for the techniques used, and a handy-dandy progress tracker is included to help you keep track of each row and your stitch counts.

Emerson is the third sock in our Summer Sock Club 2018. How have you been doing thus far? Remember to enter your FOs into the rhyFlower Knits & Lofty Loops Ravelry Groups! We look forward to seeing your socks!

Emerson is worked in the round and the pattern contains written directions and a chart for the pattern stitch. Directions are for both cuff-down and toe-up. If you feel inclined to make 2 in the same direction, that’s completely acceptable, or one of each if you’re feeling particularly topsy-turvy! Emerson features 4 sizes; Small, Medium, Large, & X-Large. You’ll also find a sock worksheet, so you know how to measure your foot to achieve a perfect fit. Emerson has directions for an afterthought heel, but you may substitute whatever heel you enjoy using.

The pattern is written for the magic loop method for knitting socks, however, the pattern notes do contain details should you wish to use double pointed needles instead.

Petals from Lofty loops was one of my yarny birthday presents for 2018. The color couldn’t possibly be any more perfect for me. The gentle pinks with speckles makes me completely swoon. If you’re unfamiliar with Allison’s talents, I’d recommend checking her out!

Land of Lakes features the lovely squishiness of Log House Cottage yarns, designed for the Leeds Grenville Fibre Extravaganza. Developed for 2 sizes, as separate PDFs so there’s no confusion, you’ll be able to accommodate all the pretties you’ve picked up during your adventure.

Land of Lakes is worked flat, and the pattern consists of written directions. The pattern does include detailed instructions for the techniques used. A handy-dandy progress tracker is included to help you keep track of each row and your stitch counts.

A huge thanks to Shelly & Brenda for the opportunity to design this! It’s been a pure joy!

I’m so excited to introduce you to our first one skein marvel!

The Trip to Pirate’s Cove is an asymmetrical shawl that caters to that one off busy skein that sits in our stashes waiting for a project that will do well with their variegation. We all know we pick these hand dyed beauties up, being captivated by how stunning they are, but are always stuck with the task of finding a pattern that will work well with the yarn.

Since there’s no purling involved in this project, I found this worked up incredibly quickly.

The Trip to Pirate’s Cove is named after a Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers song of the same name from their Mojo album. It’s Curt’s all-time favorite band, so he is thrilled about the pattern name. ♥

Such a joyful color! Squee! Lofty Loops nailed it again with another fantastic colorway that just makes my creativity go into overdrive. If you’re unfamiliar with Allison’s talents, I’d recommend checking her out!

The delicate lace and soft blue truly come together to create a true Eternal Whisper. This shawl design keeps you busy from the start with lace work on both the right and wrong sides to keep you engaged, then eases up with a relaxing garter/stockinette combo that mindlessly sets you up for the final lace. Eternal Whisper has an applied lace edge, so there’s no dread of a long bind-off at the end of this project.

Eternal Whisper is worked flat, and the pattern consists of both written directions and charts. The pattern includes detailed instructions for the techniques used, and a handy-dandy progress tracker is included to help you keep track of each row. #knitting #shawl #lace #eyelets #french #english
