Winners Announced and Charlatan is Almost Here!

I can’t tell you how excited I am about today’s post!  I’ve been waiting to share pics of Charlatan with you until it was closer to launch day, and it finally is!  This design is so much fun to knit, and has a really interesting construction that is simple and relaxing to work on.  It’s the second pattern in my Looking Back E-book (you can read all about the significance of the collection here)!  There are two different size options and it’s designed specifically to show off the beauty of a mini-skein pack or a skein of variegated yarn.  I’ll be posting again later this week with more details!  If you’d like a special newsletter reminder on launch day (with an exclusive coupon code!) please consider signing up for my Knit Design Newsletter.

Linking up with Ginny for Yarn Along and Nicole for Keep Calm, Craft On.

Also–thank you so much to all of your who offered name suggestions for my new hat design!  I was really inspired by your thoughts.  While I didn’t pick a name from those offered, I do want to send a complimentary copy of Fabled Forest (yay!) to both Laura G. and Cathie J. — their suggestions helped me to arrive at the final name!  Thank you ladies!  Email me at alovelyhomemadelife (at) gmail (dot) com with your Ravelry names and I’ll gift you the pattern when it releases later this month!

  1. How neat! No wonder you’re excited to share this one! I’m wondering, would this also be a good choice for combining and using up several big-but-nowhere-close-to-full-skein leftovers? You’ve got me thinking.

  2. This shawl is beautiful. This actually may be the first shawl that I knit as it is the first shawl that has really piqued my interest. I love the rust colorway.

    • Thank you Cathie! My testers really seemed to like it (in fact, one of them knit 2 shawls–in the large size even!–in the 5 week testing period)
