I've picked a name for my new scarf pattern! Thank you again for all of the suggestions!
Introducing.... Le Petit Pont (little bridge in French). And when I googled it, this picture showed up, and I knew it was perfect. Notre-Dame. Eleven years ago when I was in Paris, I probably stood on this bridge. I have to thank Sandi Rosner for her fabulous name suggestion! Yes, that Sandi Rosner, the one who designed the Four Seasons Wrap that I happen to be knitting on right now. And I'm not sure I have yarn in my stash that Sandi would want, but I have a better idea of a prize for her!!
So I picked another random winner from the name contest too! Elizabeth D! Congratulations! Email me at irishgirlieknits AT gmail DOT com and I'll get a prize out to you!
When I was knitting this scarf and thinking of springtime in Paris, I also knew I wanted to knit this pattern in a worsted yarn. I just loved the texture the lace fabric created. And then I suggested my idea to Erica for an infinity scarf and cowl pattern out of Solace and she loved it! So, really, I needed two names, since I thought these patterns coordinated nicely.
The next pattern will be Pont Neuf, another bridge in Paris. I suggested a photo shoot in Paris, but for some reason, that didn't make the budget :) Maybe next time.
Here is a sneek peak of the infinity scarf version of Pont Neuf in progress.
It is blocking now! Phew! As the photo shoot is tomorrow.....
Patterns coming soon!!
