This yarn is Indigo Moon. Sorry that I forgot to take picture when it’s still in a skein. This yarn is given to me by the owner of Indigo Moon, Trish. This is the first sock yarn that I have. She gave me Majestic Purple colorway, and it’s very pretty. When the yarn arrived, I was still busy designing “Garden Path Shawl”, so I have to put aside this yarn for a while.
Since I am successfully managed to design a nice crocheted shawl, I was thinking to design a knitting shawl. I know that there are tons of gorgeous knitting shawl designs out there from experienced and famous designers. But, I have this pretty sock yarn in my possession that is simply a sin if I don’t use it. I don’t like knitting socks since I don’t wear socks. I can’t make cardigan or sweater using only 1 skein sock yarn. So what other choice to I have except use it to knit a shawl or scarf.
I grab my knitting stitch dictionary, and immediately I like this “Cathedral” pattern.
I live on a tropical island called Penang which is one of the states in a country called Malaysia, but it does not stop me from learning how to knit. I knew how to crochet since I was 6 and taught myself to knit about 4 years ago and after a couple of projects, I began designing my own patterns. I just love the process of designing my own patterns, from the imagining of the design to the drawing and even the math part of it. I love to wear something pretty and feminine and it is reflected in all of my designs. I have 2 small daughters that need a lot of attention besides my full time job, so I am happy enough if I can publish 3 patterns a year. My patterns can be found on my blog
and through Etsy and on Ravelry.
