New Pattern: Gray Matter Cowl

I wrote up a quick new pattern in celebration of fall for Lynn at Knit 1 using large needles and Skacel Tee Cakes yarn. Lynn was sweet enough to take the photo above, showing the ginormous stitches in high definition against a small burst of color that is one of the first leaves to fall this season.

The pattern is available for free at Knit 1 with the purchase of Tee Cakes yarn.

Speaking of Knit 1, the shop is in the full swing of things this fall--and last night I attended a special event featuring Cirilia Rose, designer dujour and creative director for Skacel.

In town for Vogue Knitting Live, Cirilia stopped by the shop for a quick Q&A, where she dished about Skacel, design inspiration, color theory, her upcoming book and The Fiber Factor.

An awesome night! If you're not familiar with Cirilia, you should definitely check out her amazing designs on Ravelry and look forward to owning a copy of her new book when it comes out--because it is truly special and lovely.
