An Amazing (Knitting) Day!



Today has been just wonderful! I was lucky enough to be selected a winner in the Elann November / December design challenge for scarves.

This is the first contest I’ve entered and I was very nervous, some of today’s winners have won previous contests and have had their patterns published in national knitting magazines. It’s a very talented group (the gals that I know) who enter these contests, I was actually very humbled to be chosen as a finalist. Being part of this talented group means the world to me.

Nefertiti Scarf was my entry (be kind Jessica!) I love cable work, the colour was mostly for fun – and to keep with the theme. It is relatively easy to do, if you have some experience with cables and colour-work. The pattern will be available on the Elann website on February 23rd.

Despite the nervousness (really, you’re kind of putting yourself OUT there), I enjoyed the challenge. It was fun coming up with a concept and putting it together into a pattern. Thank you to the “Elann gang” for all the kind comments back at “our” watercooler.

  1. Yay Karin! I hadn’t realized it was you (did they spell your name wrong maybe?) but I am so very happy for you. Your scarf is amazing & I will be knitting it for sure. Don’t sell yourself short, you deserve to be in the group you are in!

  2. I wasn’t sure it was YOU! I like your scarf—-I secretly christened it the scarab scarf, and I hope you don’t mind! So COOOL that you picked up the design cred, because you ALWAYS put yourself out there.

    So excited to be up on the Team Elann podium with you!

  3. I didn’t realize it was you either. What a creative scarf. Love the cables and the color work.
    All the scarves are so different, and unique. Just like their creators
