Timenoguy – Pattern In the Works

Timenoguy - FINISHED

I’m so proud of this new design and so so SO happy that it turned out just as I was hoping it would! I actually several times during the process thought it wasn’t what I wanted, but I knew that was just my “you suck, this sucks, why are you doing this?” voice that likes to crop up while I’m designing at times (seriously, am I the only knitter who hears that voice every once in a while?), so I just tuned it out. And lo and behold, it actually worked out exactly as I was expecting it to. Amazing! 😉

I set out on this project with three things in mind: lace, cables and ruffles. As those are three of my most favorite things to knit, I wanted to incorporate them all into a single design, while not making it too complicated or “busy” looking.

For sure, I wanted a triangular shawl that was nice and big – something I could wrap around myself on chilly Spring/Summer/Fall days or as a scarf on cold Winter days.

I also wanted it to be made in a gorgeous yarn – something soft and heavenly. Sundara Fingering Merino Cashmere totally fit that bill. And it just so happens that I have two skeins from a while ago that I just love – Aged Oak Barrel and Cabernet Grapes. And they played off of each other so nicely too!

I can’t wait to get this one published! I’m looking at late June/early July for a publishing date, but will know more as I get the pattern actually written and find some test knitters. So excited! 😀

  1. I can’t wait to get my hands on this one! I’m thinking handspun! I’ve been looking for a shawl with lace and cables! The ruffles are a bonus.

  2. this is beautiful! i love that you incorporate 3 of your favorite things to knit into one piece, and none of those items distracts from the other. seriously gorgeous! 🙂

  3. Love, love love the shawl and am waiting for the pattern. Hope I have enough yarn to make it! LOL. We all have that little naggy voice inside just give it a glass of w(h)ine and tell it to have a nap!

  4. Everyone has that little voice- I have it every time I sit down to write or anytime it takes more than 2 tries to cast on. But you kept going any way and guess what? You made something beautiful and unique that no one had ever done before. Thumbs up!

  5. I love to knit cables and lace together too. This is such a pretty shawl, and I’m sure will be very popular! That voice can be so pesky and hard to ignore (I know from experience, LOL), glad you pushed on through. 🙂

  6. Gorgeous!! Can’t wait until this one is available. 🙂

    I too get that voice in my head, though it comes along when I’m knitting from patterns and not just trying to do my own thing. Glad you chose to keep going and ignoring that voice!

  7. Beautiful! I love how you incorporated all three elements yet the design is understated and elegant. It is also a great size, very versatile. Those colors are amazing!
