Unicorn Stripes

The latest Wool People patterns from Brooklyn Tweed came out today. Check them out on Ravelry. I've already packed up a box to go to Lynda.
Pattern: Gyre (purchased on Ravelry)
Yarn: 3 skeins of Mrs. Crosby Satchel in the colour Wild Huckleberry
Inspired by a line of poetry from William Butler Yeats, this modern honeycomb lace stole is distinguished by rays of stockinette bursting from one corner.

Bristol Ivy is known for garments and accessories with innovative, geometric forms, such as Thorn (Wool People 4), Svalbard (Wool People 6), and Keel (Wool People 8). Now she gives us an inversion of the positive and negative space relationships often found in asymmetric shawls.

Gyre is worked entirely from charts in three skeins of Loft; choose a bright, fresh hue for the perfect summer accessory. The pattern includes a photo tutorial on the Russian Join, a technique that joins a new ball of yarn with no weaving of ends and without the thickening and stiffness of a spit splice.
And it is perfect timing because a box just arrived from Lynda. Unicorn Stripes (pattern purchased on Ravelry) is done.
You can knit the pattern as a scarf or you can join the ends to make a cowl. It takes 30 skeins (one each of every colour) of Unicorn Tails.
I'm kind of jealous of Lynda - she got to play with all the fun colours. If you don't like a colour or two, you can take them out and double up on ones that you really like.
Beth just walked in from golf with subs and then it's TV time. Master Chef and Big Brother. Happy knitting time.
