60 Quick Knits in Cascade 200

I, like many of you, I'm sure, love the simple practicality and awesome color range of Cascade 220. Also, it's one of those yarns that tends to always be in the stash, but not necessarily in sweater quantities. So how perfect to have a big book with lots of small projects using it?

I designed 2 scarves for the book-- here's one of them:

The other one is a mitered square affair using different variegated shades of 220. I'll put a picture up once I get my mitts on one. :)

New designs from Aslan Trends

I've been designing for Aslan Trends for the past couple of years, starting with a little boy's sweater I did for their pattern book Season's Change Volume 2. Since then, they've shifted their focus to individual patterns, which retailers can download for customers. Here's two of my latest for them, now available from yarn shops that carry Aslan Trends:

Cropped Lacy Jacket in Pima Clasico, a really nice to work with cotton yarn. Worked from the top down.

Del Sur Cardi in Del Sur, a super bulky thick and thin wool. Worked from the top down. Super fast yarn with a nice texture from the thick and thin.

I did a third design for them very recently in their new yarn Litoral, which a little bird tells me will be in an upcoming Aslan Trends newsletter.
