It’s almost 2 weeks after first day of new year. My middle finger of left hand is healing well. It’s still looked ugly but no more pain and I can knit and draw. I didn’t post much last year in this blog. But, I have bunched of stuff to show and share.

Last late summer, I got an offer to work with Vogue Knitting magazine and I worked with them happily. Deadline was quite tight, and I was afraid to knit sample used limited yardage. Time’s run fast and I found a magazine on my PO box last Friday.

I used lovely Koigu yarn Pencil Box Collection. I love math and mathematical shapes like triangle, Hexagon, and spiral. It’s always made me feel to solve puzzles. I wish to design more often inspire from those mathematical shapes.

Leigh’s shawl is worked in a single KPPPM Pencil Box from Koigu Wool Designs and shows the colors off to stunning effect. Each hexagon is built using three eyelet diamond motifs and then sewn together into four tiers. Mattress stitch is used in seaming to avoid any gaps between the motifs. 
COLOR CUE 
Koigu’s Pencil Boxes come in myriad color variations. For this geometric wrap, follow our lead, or play around with different color arrangements 
that you find equally pleasing.

Belloguardo Cardigan

Belloguardo cardigan is my newest design published on Wool studio Vol.5. My blog was so quiet last few seasons because of my health issue. I did knit as usual all the time but I didn’t get a chance to publish new pattern or even finish Objects. Things are getting better slowly and luckily get chances to work with some publishers and yarn company early this year. But I can’t post or show photos before the issue is published. So, I had to wait till right time.

Return to talk about this Belloguardo cardigan, It was so fun to work. I love the concept of the issue and always had a plan to make hoodie cardigan for myself. Like monk’s cloak. Deadline was quite tight. But, I enjoyed whole process.

The Belloguardo Cardgian is an avant-garde interpretation of a traditional monk’s cloak with a dramatic oversized hood and billowing side wings. The shape of this cardigan is engineered with a sturdy broken-rib stitch that adds texture and interest to the fabric. The cardigan is worked from the bottom up, starting with each wide peplum.

Happy Knitting!

Wonderful FOs: Parallel module socks

I  had a Knit-Along Socks through last two months with Knitters in Kakao talk.

Here are Wonderful 27 FOs.

Korean blog is here.

I published Parallel module socks pattern a couple months ago. I had to update pattern almost 4 times within first week after I published. It wasn’t easy to write sock pattern in entrelac  technique.  I’m very happy and glad that many knitters love this pattern. They choose this pattern without hesitation and finished wonderful socks. It’s very thankful.

Parallel module sock pattern on Ravelry is here.

 

brickwork socks

I did upload brickwork socks file on my Ravelry store this afternoon. I designed color-work pattern chart 2010. its reminds me old PC game Brickwork. That’s the reason I named the sock I made.

When I wrote first sock pattern, I felt so difficult to find a way to express how built heel and gusset. I had get some help from old scadnavian sock pattern book. It wasn’t my own voice. So, I published first brickwork socks pattern as free until 2013.
Former sock pattern is no longer aviable as free.

I rewrote brickwork socks pattern in new view. I added unique heel and gusset idea in new brickwork socks. Also I used real sock yarn this time.

A pair of pretty socks made my feet and soul are happy.

Enduring Stripes

I made this beautiful Enduring Stripes Socks through last Monday to yesterday. It’s designed by Cat Bordhi on New directions in Sock Knitting (Interweave 2016). I have some left over sock yarn and it isn’t enough for a pair. This is a good design to use them.

I used each 30g of KnitPicks Storll tonel ‘High tea’ and ‘Pearlescent’,
This is the first time to knit Sweet tomato heel. W&t seems unique. It’s almost same as shadow w&t.

지난 월요일부터 어제까지 약 4일간 이 줄무늬 양말을 만들었습니다. Cat Bordhi가 디자인했고 인터위브에서 2016년 출간된  New directions in Sock Knitting에 수록되었어요. 자투리실중 한켤레를 만들만한 양이 안되는것을 사용했는데 이 디자인은 그런 실들을 처리하기에 좋았습니다.

사용한것은 약 30g씩 남은 닛픽스의 스트롤 토널 두가지 색상  High tea(분홍)과 Pearlescent(진주)를 사용했습니다. 경사뜨기가 특이하다는 세조각웻지가 이어진듯한 힐 다른말로 스윗 토마토힐을 이번에 처음 해봤는데 . 거의 섀도우 랩앤턴이었어요.

 

 

 

I stated Sock Knit-Along with Korean knitters through kakao-talk. Kakao is a kind of messenger app.This Enduring stripses are not a KAL socks. But I need something to warm up.

한국의 니터들과(대부분 네이버 블로거) 메신저 앱인 카카오 톡으로 양말 같이 뜨기를 시작했습니다. 이 줄무늬 양말은 함께뜨기를 위한 양말은 아니예요. 시작하기 전에 무언가 워밍업 할만한 것이 필요했습니다. 이제 일상으로 돌아가서 일은 일대로 또 함께뜨기는 함께뜨기대로 잘 균형을 유지하려 합니다.

Happy Knitting!

Winter park shawl

I’m back from long long absence. I am reboot this blog and would love to introduce my new design. It’s hard to say ‘new design’ honestly because it’s published early summer this year. I made a sample through last winter and published on Knitscene Handmade issue. Title of this shawl is Winter park. It’s worked from side to side in one piece, beginning at the left side corner. After the full height of the shawl is reached at the center point, the edge is finished with a knitted-on edging.

오랜 공백을 깨고 돌아왔습니다. 이 블로그를 리부팅하고 저의 새로운 디자인을 소개하려해요. 엄밀히 새 디자인 이라고 하긴 어렵긴 해요.  초여름에 닛씬 핸드메이드 이슈 Knitscene Handmade에 수록되었거든요. 지난 겨울 샘플을 만들고 도안을 만들었고 이름도 윈터파크 Winter Park, 아주 멋지죠? 끝에서 끝으로 떠가는 삼각숄인데 이등변 삼각형의 구조를 가지고 있어 중심이 제일 높아요. 그리고 마무리는 니티드 온 에징 Knitted-on edging이라고 불리우는 떠가면 이어주는 형식으로 되어 있습니다.
