The Kemmerer Cowl.

So at some point, I intend to switch over from my little amateur free blog to this Actual Website(tm), but it seems like I keep updating the to-be-abandoned blog instead of this one, because I don’t want to lose the (very small) momentum of that one, and no one is really reading this yet. Which is freeing, but also freeing from the incentive to try to build up the blog part of the site so people will have something to read. There’s something deep about that, man. Freedom and freedom from reward.

Anyway, I managed to get a second pattern published in January! This means I’m slightly behind schedule in terms of my indie design goals for this year, but it also means I’m not unrecoverably lagging. And I’m really pleased with this cowl design, although also honesty surprised at how popular it’s been in the forty hours it’s been available.


The Kemmerer Cowl is the latest design, available as an instant .PDF download via Ravelry! It combines simple garter stitch with an interesting seaming technique. It’s a good way to show off a fancy hand-dyed yarn (and it knits up in one skein, so you can even use those extravagant one-skein-dyelots), and makes a very wearable finished piece. DSC_0086.jpeg
It can be purchased via Ravelry as an instant .PDF download, and it’s 15% off through February 14th.
