Gather Shawl // A New Pattern

knitting, KNIT in COLOR, new pattern, saleAndrea Mowry4 Comments

I designed this shawl for Gather DTLA and the LA yarn crawl using gorgeous hand dyed yarn from Stimpy Lab and Quince & Co. Tern! Shawls are a year round wardrobe essential for me. I love trying to wear one of my handknits everyday of the year, and shawls make that easy!

Gather wears well thru out all of the seasons and in any climate with its open lace, great drape and generous size. Pair your favorite fun sock yarn with a solid, and the color combinations are endless! I am always looking for ways to use my coveted hand dyed yarns that I tend to hoard in my stash. I think a lot of us keep them as little trophies, as they are so beautiful all skeined up. But they are even better knit up - and such a delight to watch the color changes as we knit stitch by stitch! That being said, this shawl would be just as gorgeous knit up in neutrals - or even in a single color, really allowing the texture to shine!

I hope it will become a wardrobe staple for you, just as it has for me! The techniques used (even the lace!) are simple enough that any level of knitter should have no problem with this project. Using different colors and textures, it is such a fun knit that it just flies off the needles!

To celebrate the release of this shawl, I am offering the coupon code GATHER for 15% off of this shawl pattern until Wednesday, May 4 at midnight EST!

Gather DTLA still has a limited supply of the yarn that was hand-dyed by Stimpy Lab for this pattern! I believe there are just 5 kits left, and she can ship anywhere! And if you are in the Los Angeles area, they are hosting a KAL for this pattern beginning on Wednesday!!

Naturally Straight Forward // Spring Fever Flash Sale!

knitting, NaturallyStraightForward, saleAndrea Mowry2 Comments

As some of you may know, one half of Naturally Straight Forward (By Annie Claire) lives in Northern California, where they are already seeing signs of spring. The other half (yours truly) lives in Michigan - where we just got 12 inches of snow! The snow is beautiful - but my heart strings are tugging for some green - some afternoons spent outside with my daughter, and some sunshine on my skin. To help us get thru the rest of winter, and to celebrate what is coming soon, we wanted to have a little sale!

Use the coupon code SPRINGFEVER in my pattern store or on Ravelry for 15% any and all Naturally Straight Forward patterns 2/26/16-2/28/16 at midnight! Enjoy and Happy Knitting!!!
