Glace Bay

| Monday, March 2, 2015
Happy Monday Readers!  I am so excited to share an amazing and versatile pattern that I think you are all going to love.
"If ‘knitting designer’ had been one of the job choices for those aptitude tests they give you in high school, I wouldn’t have spent so many years trying to decide what I wanted to be when I grew up. My best subject in high school was math; my best classes in college were logic, drawing, and a commercial art class. After careers in computer programming/analysis and child-rearing, knit design snuck up on me, but I think it’s the perfect use of my odd skill set! I love every step of the process, from figuring out how to actually make what I’ve envisioned to putting the finishing touches on a pattern, not to mention all the knitting that comes in between!"
I am thrilled to share with you one of Laura's newest patterns. 

Glace Bay

I fell in love with this shawl the moment I saw the pictures.  (By the way, her photos are just stunning and they really give a great representation of the pattern!!)  The shawl is so warm looking and really has a unique stitch pattern to it.  Who does not love a delicate ruffle on any edging, I know I sure do.
The construction of the pattern and how it is written is brilliant.  Laura does a fantastic job of making her directions clear and very easy to understand.  She takes the time to do some really detailed charts but better yet, goes the extra mile to write out all of her charts/directions.  That is such an extra for ma as a knitter just to be able to refer back to either one as I need it. 
I am really excited for my shawl already.  I have chosen to go rustic and use a fisherman's wool.  I am knitting mine with two different colors to give the stitch definition a pop with a coordinating color on the ruffled edge.  I am really excited to wrap this shawl around my shoulders this coming fall.
If Laura is a new designer to you, I hope you take the time to look at ALL her patterns.  She has several patterns and a wide variety of what she has to offer.  I know I could find several other sweaters and accessories to knit of hers.
