I’m excited to have a design in At the Spinnery, a beautiful new book of patterns featuring Green Mountain Spinnery yarns. There’s a print edition, for all of us who love to hold a book in our hands and savor its pages. You can order it from either the Spinnery or the publisher, One More Row Press. There’s also a digital version, which you can get on Ravelry.
Catharus, a triangular shawl worked in fingering weight yarn, features a wide rib flowing gracefully into sculptural lace, ending with a scalloped edging. I named it after the state bird of Vermont, the hermit thrush (Catharus guttatus) — as a tribute to the Spinnery’s home state (they’re located in Putney, Vermont).
The shawl is knit in two skeins of Green Mountain Spinnery’s Forest, a fingering weight yarn that combines the warmth and bounce of Targhee fine wool with the gleam of Tencel® Lyocell (from trees). It blocks beautifully, creating a light, airy fabric.

In other news: I’m putting the finishing touches on my Bay Road Mitts pattern. The mitts, a companion to the Bay Road Cowl, will be released very soon. The two designs will be available as individual patterns and as an ebook set. Stay tuned!
