I am thrilled to be releasing my Goldfinch shawl today! This shawl came out of the pure necessity of having a fun shawl on my needles! I wanted something super enjoyable to knit - the kind of pattern that you just can't put down!

Originally, I had hat plans for these beautiful yarns from O-wool, but as they lay there all snuggled up together, I just couldn't bare to separate them! This is one of those designs that I did very little preparation for - instead choosing to let the yarn tell me what it wanted to be. Short rows just felt right! And then stripes, yes stripes. How about some simple lace? Yup, perfect! I hope you have as much fun with this shawl as I did! And I can't wait to see all of the amazing colors everyone chooses to use! So what are you waiting for?? Save 15% with the coupon code Goldfinch until 7/6/16 at midnight EST! And don't forget to share your progress and finished pictures with us all by using the tags #goldfinchshawl and #dreareneeknits!!


I am also thrilled to announce that I have 2 more of my favorite patterns up in the shop!

This is Nascha - the perfect layering piece to knit up in preparation for fall! If you have yet to try your hand at brioche, this is the perfect beginner pattern. Even better? The two-color brioche gives you a completely reversible fabric, making it a versatile piece in your handmade wardrobe! Knit up in Quince & Co. Owl & Owl Tweet, it is pure, woolly heaven!

This is the Om Shawl! This large shawl can be worn in so many different ways, and is SO.MUCH.FUN to knit! Squishy texture, colorwork, relaxing garter stripes - what more could you ask for? How about worsted weight yarn that results in a surprisingly quick knit?? It's not too late to join the Om & Yoga Shawl knitalong taking place in my Ravelry group! We will be knitting together until August! And once you have bound yours off, make sure to check out this video for a peek at a few of my favorite ways to wear this style shawl!
