My darling design partner Emily is coming out with a new collection! I’m so excited because while Emily and I are design partners I’m also a huge fan of her stunning lace work. She is working away on a collection of garments, accessories, and shawls set to come out in September 2012, Handmade in the UK. I’m a big fan of Emily’s shawls, I’ve knit the Photosynthesis (which my mother absconded with) and the Sunflower and I love them!
Tin Can Knits is running a contest until the end of May (as well as offering a 20% off coupon on all patterns from Tin Can Knits, Gourmet Crafter, and Modern Lace). The prize is a skein of Gourmet Crafter lace yarn dyed to your colour liking and a chance to design a piece of lace with none other than Emily herself! For more details on entering the contest and what the design work entails you can check out the Tin Can Knits blog here.
Just to keep you all updated on my current knitterly status Emily and I are also working diligently on our next joint design project. I will be seen swatching, cursing, doing some math, watching the weather closely for photo opportunities, and talking incessantly about certain stitch patterns.
