And the winner is...

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!!

Happy Weekend!

So what is my prize? Is the photo of the pumpkin a hint? Glad you liked the name, and can't wait to see the Solace cowl. Have a great time at Stitches.

Love the names and the newest creations.

Erica said...

Glad you chose Sandi's name. Perfect name for a girl like you with a design so fab! And I'm super excited that the scarf inspired a cowl out of Solace.

We should really work on a budget for a Paris photo shoot. Just kidding!
