Cat’s Cradle

Cat's Cradle for Zealana Yarns!

Cat’s Cradle for Zealana Yarns!



My design for Zealana Yarns in Air Chunky.  A wonderful yarn to work with – perhaps the lightest and warmest ever for me.  A chunky yarn with about 140 m per 50 grs – amazing!

All tied up!

All tied up!

I started calling this design Cat’s Cradle because of the shape and the pattern detail – Cat’s Paw – a traditional Shetland lace pattern.

Cat’s Paw is another short-rowed pattern, similar to Saracen in shaping, it is designed to sit on the shoulders and stay put!  The tie detail adds a bit of a Vintage feel to the shawl  and just a little bit more lace.

Happy Knitting

I also have designed for Vogue Knitting, Koigu Magazine, Zealana, Jimmie Beans, and Malabrigo, As of the beginning of 2015 I also became creative director of the Buffalo Wool Co., a new job that just flows along with what I already do. I am a knitting teacher and knitwear designer. I work full time in my LYS, Mad About Ewe Fine Yarns. I recently was 1st runner up in a Vogue Knitting Design Competition called the Magic of Mohair. My design was featured in the Early Fall 2011 Vogue Knitting. I will have another design in the Vogue Knitting Winter 2011 edition. I have recently purchased a Canon Rebel Camera and have started taking way too many pictures. I love this site for sharing my thoughts and pictures. Life is good!
