Tomorrow I will be on First Street, Space #552 – the second on the left as you enter the street from West to East. This is a fun event and I will be bringing my new coats, so you don’t want to miss them (before they are sold and gone forever!). Plus I have made some new Dragon Tail Shawls in new colors.

New Plaid Sweater Jacket – Beautiful on the Outside AND the Inside October 6, 2017

Posted by myblueheavenknits in Uncategorized.

This has been a marathon of calculation and measurement for me.  Yes, you could knit a plaid using a double bed, or punchcard, but those are not as challenging as this single layer plaid.  Shown here is the Small – Medium size on a Size 8 model.  It can either be wrapped, as shown, or you can sew in a zipper (suggested for the Medium size).  The challenge was to create a fabric that would not have those pesky strands on the backside which would catch on everything, using yarns that are available to everyone.  This is a similar style as for my coats (previously posted), but with sweater weight yarns and using a unique way to make a plaid fabric.  The plaids MATCH vertically and horizontally.  Below are pictures of the Front, Back and Inside.  Oooh, yummy.  Yes, you could do it any slap-dash way and not match the plaids, but that would not be a masterpiece that you would be proud to wear.  This has a classic appeal and will be flattering on everyone.  Now to begin calculating the size Large – XLarge……Cover me girls…I’m going in…..

New Coats and Jackets – Patterns Coming September 30, 2017

Here’s some quick pics of my new coats and jackets, but I am still working on another version of the jacket which I am making in a Small-Medium Size. I will be writing a pattern for the coat and another for the jacket. I hope everyone will like them. I spun all my own yarns for the coats as they needed to be thick and dense. Finished, they weigh a lot, but that is what you want for an outer garment. For the jacket, I am using Caron’s new Big Cake in the Plum Pudding color. They are lighter in weight. I am also doing another one with a interesting hand manipulated plaid – trying to finish that one by tomorrow. I will put a pic up when I am done with it.
