Karen had been to Stitches on Friday…and she purchased a dynamite pattern Liesel  from CocoKnits. This vendor/designer had models to try on of the patterns that she has designed….lovely…lovely…lovely! Karen was so excited with the design and she found the yarn specificed in the pattern,  Euro Flax Linen.  Not only is Karen H excited but so was Karen K from our Skein Lane knittng circle as well as  myself. I tried Liesel on and I felt quite trendy! I have some Euro Flax Linen in my Skein Lane inventory…it’s red and I think it will be stunning. I will embark upon it as soon as I finish the Tomten sweater jacket, a design by Elizabeth Zimmerman, for my newly born nephew, Carson Louis…..Louis is our dad’s name! Brings a tear or two!

I am pointing you to Meg Swansen’s site to learn more about the Tomten Sweater Jacket and Elizabeth Zimmerman – Meg’s mother.


During our 4-hr sprint Karen took Connie and me to the CocoKnits booth…and we both fell in the designs…just as Karen had. Connie tried on Carlie, seen below, and she then went shopping for the yarn – Elsbeth Lavold’s Silky Flame. Her color choice was a red-orange. It’s beautiful and Connie will look terrific in it.


More to come in the next post!
