Thanksgiving Shawl kit in madder

Ecrit par [email protected] le 19 février 2008 sous Dye House News, Lace Knitting

Lace knitting kits from Miriam Felton

Yes they are here. Ready for the the run up to Christmas and the chilly weather, when it finally arrives! Two wonderful designs by up-and-coming young American designer Miriam Felton.

It is also possible for you to e-mail me and change the colours in the kit to those of your choice. Tongues of fire through asphalt? Flower beds in between a box hedge?

Lace Knitting with naturally hand-dyed yarn

Ecrit par [email protected] le 24 mars 2007 sous Lace Knitting

I thought that today, being Bastille day here in France, would be perfect to launch the lace knitting page. Yes, Renaissance naturally hand-dyed crewel wool has been discovered by the lace knitters!

Young American knitting designer Miriam Felton has been busy adapting her impressive Mountain Peaks design to be knitted with Renaissance wool. You can view and buy the pattern here. The shawl below is knitted using 3 x 250m hanks of Dark Green (1511). The pattern for the shawl is inspired by the magnificent Rocky Mountains where Miriam lives.
