Le Petit Pont
I'll admit it. I'm enamoured with the infinity scarf version of Pont Neuf. I'm already on my second one (for me to keep!)! A big thank you to Nartian who test knit this in less than three days! Seriously, where would I be without my knitting friends?! The pattern uses approximately 300-325 yards (you'll need 4 skeins of Solace, but will use less than 3 1/2 skeins) makes me think of lots of yarns I can stashbust with. Can anyone say Christmas gifts??
The cowl version uses approximately 125-150 yards (2 skeins) and knits up in a flash. You can probably get both versions out of 5 skeins. Again, holiday gifts!
For a few minutes during our photo shoot, as we sat outside Pamplemousse Patisserie et Cafe, on a misty Sunday morning when the Bay Area got its first rain, I almost felt like we were in Paris. My dear friends, Thayer, aka Ilikecake, my gorgeous model, and Tricia, my photographer who is willing to climb ledges and chairs to get just the right shot, were absolutely amazing again. If ever there is a book (hey, a girl can dream), you know who will be on the cover and who will be behind the camera. And I promise to pay them in actual money, not just macarons and quiche :) Big hugs ladies!! I so appreciate it!
Both patterns are available for immediate download at Patternfish (Le Petit Pont and Pont Neuf) and will be available this weekend at Stitches East in The Fine Needle booth #218, 220, 222. You'll find me either in their booth or the Kollage Yarns booth so be sure to stop by and say hi and to check out the new patterns in person! The patterns will also be available at your favorite LYS that carries Kollage Yarns.
