New Knit and Crochet Patterns by Kristin for Black Bunny Fibers

I had the pleasure of meeting Carol Sulcoski, owner and artist of Black Bunny Fibers, a few years ago at a knitting convention. She is intelligent, hilarious, warm hearted, a good person, and an absolute pleasure to call my friend. She sent me samples of her yarn recently, and I quickly winded the skeins into balls to begin creating right away. I used one skein of the Blue-Faced Leicester sock weight superwash wool (650 yards per skein) to make a beautiful crochet lace shawl. Nothing tickles me quite like large, one skein projects...

And I sued one skein of the Blue-Faced Leicester superwash DK weight wool (240 yards per skein) to make an interesting lace stitch pattern scarf using dropped stitches. It is a really cool technique and I hope you enjoy making it as much as I did!

Here are some snapshots and ordering information for each of the PDF instant download patterns:

SALE on Yarn and Books and FREE Shipping! 

Drew Emborsky is having a sale on Iconic Yarn this week. Each $16 skein is only $5!!! I love this hand dyed merino yarn. I featured Iconic Yarn in "Knitting Outside the Swatch"'s Tindra Herringbone Scarf:

The cabled tiles that make up this vibrant scarf are embellished with knitted Xs and Os,symbolizing hugs and kisses. While the scarf would be beautiful knit in one color, I wanted to emphasize the herringbone texture created from the unique configuration of the tiles by using two 
shades of yellow. You might assume that the motif pieces are knit separately and sewn together, especially because they are knit in two separate colors—not so! Each new tile begins by picking up and knitting into the previous tile and, on the interior edge, joining as you go on every other row.

You can order two skeins of this yarn ON SALE this week for only $5 each HERE! And in celebration of this incredible sale, you can also order a signed copy of "Knitting Outside the Swatch" for only $20 with FREE SHIPPING HERE:
