Yarn Shipment: Frabjous Fibers

And the second package of yarn that I was waiting on has finally come in. Its funny timing; I just released a pattern that uses gradients and the next project I'll be working on involves another set of gradients! This is Frabjous Fibers Cheshire Cat mini skeins pack in the gradient color way "Shilling and Pence". I love these blues so much and they have a slight shine!

Stephanie of Frabjous Fibers contacted me after I had released my Arius Shawl pattern, asking if I could design a pattern for their yarns and of course I said yes! The moment I laid my eyes on the yarn I knew what I was going to design with it (well, what type of design): a triangular shawl. It's been a while since I've used this shawl shape and working on the Maia tee reminded me how much I've missed it! Now I've just got to think, what design do I want to work into it? I've got all next week to figure that out, since I'll be out of town for a few days for a much needed vacation...

Pattern Reveal - Aura Stole

Today is finally the day when I can reveal to you the secret project that has been in the works for the past couple of months! Introducing... The Aura Stole, an airy and light wrap, perfect for feeling one with the wind!

However, this project was not done alone! Everyday Peacocks made a matching "Aura Collection" of shawl pins and stitch markers. Here's a look into the gorgeous shawl pin. The pins and stitch markers will be available in five different colors.

The Aura Stole was also designed specifically for Julie Asselin's gradient yarn set, a lovely fingering base blend of merino wool and silk. The pattern will be released this Friday, July 17th, for $4.99, with pre-orders available on Everyday Peacocks' website for the Aura Collection.
