Les Cloches CannelĂ©es Is Live In The Shop

Les Cloches Cannelées or The Fluted Bells scarf is finally available for purchase in  my Ravelry shop.

You can find it here: KeiB Designs on Ravelry Soon to follow on Craftsy and Etsy.

Les Cloches had different working names through the design and prototype phases but I think this one suits it best 🙂 The two culprits are pictured below:

If you do make one of my patterns, please be sure and post photos to our little group on Ravelry. I also have a tab way-y-y-y up top there under the “KeiB Designs” tab, to post reader’s knits, if you’d like to share them here.

I’m still sick as all get out but the enforced home time was good for a little productivity and it’s Hump Day! I’ll be going back to work tomorrow – ugghh – out of pace now but well fortified with cold meds for the battle.

Cheers all 🙂

WIP Wednesday

The holidays and winter have swept me up! Here it is Wednesday again and I haven’t posted in a week. I’ve been working away on my Marisol cardigan but have hit a snag with deciphering the difference between the charted and written instructions. As I’m still a bit of a newbie with Tunisian charts, I’ve set it aside until I can put my hands on a stitch dictionary.

Having been bitten hard by the Tunisian bug, I decided to use up some more stash and have been working on another KB Design that uses it. I know… still haven’t edited the other two patterns yet. I’ll get there. If only the days were longer!

Progress to date looks like this:

My front garden looks like this:

My wee purple smoke bush, thorns subdued with a sheet of ice. Very pretty 🙂

Where To Find KB Designs Patterns

Weekends mean my Hanging Garden Stole gets lots of undivided attention. I finished up the third repeat and am still in love. Now halfway through Dahlia’s first sleeve but not rushing this lighter, summer-weight cardigan and really enjoying its unusual construction.

I’ve spent a fair bit of time on my newest design, a knitted scarf that is a joy to work in Posh Yarn’s “Miranda Sock” and that lead to this post. There are several links to follow that will take you to my Designer profile, a shop or pattern description – I’m hoping you’ll take a moment to look.

I try not to inundate this space with advertising but I’ll do one of those posts today for anyone who may have missed or doesn’t like to click through to other sites. I’m Karin Bole Tupper of KB Designs and I sell knit and crochet patterns in my Esty shop, my Ravelry shop and on Craftsy. I’ve made a few the Ravelry connected patterns available on a tab at the top of this page. I’ll be expanding the selection as time permits and you can make a purchase with a click.

Some of my better known patterns are: Two Weeknights With Warrick (scarf) and the Mad-tini sock (designed for the very first “Sock Madness” KAL). There is a complete list of all my designs on this page: KB Designs Ravelry List.

I also have acquired a vast amount of lovely yarns, often in the name of design; that I sometimes put up on Ravelry to destash. If you’re looking for something, please check out my sales on this Ravelry page. Or you can click on the lovely Ryan Gosling below (who is not only a handsome Canadian actor but also a knitter!) and he will escort you to my stash sales and my wishlist for trades. Who could ask for more? 🙂

Thank you Ryan!

Thank you Ryan!

A quick note about shipping:

People are sometimes set back by the cost of P&P. Just wanted to clarify that I ship based on the size and weight from my door to yours. I get a quote from Canada Post based on that and I am always glad to share their website and my Post Code. I don’t charge for the brand new boxes, envelopes or tissue (and try to recycle as often as possible) and I consider the half hour walk to the PO as aerobics :). It often costs more to ship within Canada than to some points in the USA – a shocked response from a fellow Canadian prompted me to include this information. I hope that getting a great deal on some beautiful and sometimes discontinued yarn offsets that. For the most part, the cost is not unlike P&P costs in the UK.

If you have any questions about my patterns (design process, suggestions, etc.), yarns for sale please feel free to message me at the newly added “Message Me” tab at the top of this page. You are welcome to find me on Ravelry as well. My group there is: Pointe Shoes Punk Rock And Purl and we welcome knitters and crocheters.

New Pattern Release

For my fellow crochet enthusiasts: Carré Glace is now live on Ravelry!

This warm and lofty scarf is a quick crochet in 12 ply bulky weight. Perfect to have done well in time for all the various gift-giving celebrations that will be here before we know it.

Perfect too for my neck of the woods where the two seasons are Hot (barbecue, bellinis and bikinis) or Hockey (icicles affixed to most body parts).

Come join the Pointe Shoes Punk Rock And Purl Ravelry group to ask questions , share photos and to let me know if you find any errata. The threads are developing as required 🙂

Carré Glace will also be available on Craftsy and in my Etsy shop very soon.

 

Cheers and have a lovely weekend!
