ETA: The new Debbie Bliss Donegal Luxury Tweed Chunky (as well as its little sister DLT Aran) can now be found on the website HERE!
Woo hoo - check this out. Recognize the above picture? It's from the Fall 2009 Vogue Knitting, and it is designed by our very own Nichole Reese! Many of you know Nichole from seeing her here in the shop, but did you also know she is a successful knitwear designer? Her entire pattern line, bluegirl knits, can be found on our site, available as instant downloads. One of our favs? The Machu Picchu Hat:
This warm earflap hat is knit with one skein each of Alpaca With A Twist Big Baby. . . delicious.
Another favorite, (and I swear I'm not biased just because it's my cutey-pie modeling...) the just-released Little Miss Sunshine:
This lovely is knit out of Bambino, the good-feeling and make-you-feel-good yarn by Be Sweet. Its blend of organic cotton and bamboo is perfect for kids' stuff. This pattern would also work with any other dk or light-worsted weight yarn.
So let's all give Nichole three cheers for her first published design - and keep your eyes out for more great designs by Nichole in upcoming publications!
Nichole can be found on ravelry as yarnpusher.
