...but I'm staying home!
Some months ago, Knit Culture Studio asked several designers if we wanted to debut a new design in their booth at Vogue Knitting Live in Los Angeles. Yes! What fun! So I designed the Buttonwillow Wrap, and then I had to keep quiet about it and not show anyone. That's always the most difficult part of what I do! But now that VKL is actually starting, I can show you all (even though I can't sell it online until October 11)!
Buttonwillow is knit in Road to China Light at a tighter gauge than I generally use for shawls.
The idea was to get the texture to pop. Usually my small shawls have some lace, but this one is all soft texture.
I think my favorite part is the spine. I love the little twist in there that keeps it interesting.
And there's the textured edging.
It is super easy to alter the size by changing the number of chart repeats.
So if you are at VKL this weekend, I hope you'll stop by the Knit Culture booth and see Buttonwillow in person! Now I'm off to my knitting group. I'll be working on my second Buttonwillow. :)
