Details regarding projects
Photo (1): Debbie Cravets – Pullover
“My latest completed project. The pattern is from Ravelry and is called Gaudi by Julie Debrecen (Julie Knits in Paris). Lucky Julie! Yarn used: main color is Anzula Nebula in apricot and the contrast color is Malabrigo Sock Yarn in Arco Iris.”
Photos (2): Stacy Mann – Sunflower Hat
“The yarn is Ella Rae Cozy Soft. DK weight. The name of the pattern is Honoring Ukraine. The yarn is from Emy’s in Chula Vista. It is a combination of techniques: knitting in the round, intarsia, stranded and a tiny bit of embroidery and crochet. All explained in the pattern.” Stacy’s free pattern can be found here: Ravelry
Photos (2): Aunrey Bubis – Shawl and Pullover
1. Sahara shawl by Mary-Ann Lammers, knit in Malabrigo Rios Black and natural.
2. Chauncey pullover by Isabell Kraemer, knit with Miss Babs Keira in obsidian and 2020 DFW Fiberfest (pink).
Photos (4) – Sydnie Wauson – 2 shawls
1. “Your Slip is Showing, a Casapinka KAL, made with mostly stash sale yarns. It’s great TV knitting and I’ve already started ‘your scraps are showing’ from a variety of leftovers.”
2. “Hope Remains, the February 2021 MKAL from Boo Knits. Luscious Handmaiden ruby-red pure silk. Don’t judge me for taking a year to get ends woven in!”
Photos (2) Colleen Davis – patchwork cardigans
The first cardigan is composed of blue bias squares that are put together with chartreuse (3-needle bind off). The second patchwork cardigan has gray, mauve and orange shapes with bands of black and white stripes inserted randomly. Both cardigans are Colleen’s original designs.
How to submit your photos
Photos can be submitted either via text message (preferred) or email to Kerry Nare. (Kerry’s phone number and direct email address can be found in the Guild Directory.) Image file sizes should be as large as possible for clarity (ideally greater than 500 kb please). Keep in mind that projects show up best against solid backgrounds. Include a description of your project, pattern and designer name, yarn used, how you came to knit your project, and any other information you wish viewers to know, and when texting be sure to include your name!
* Did you know? Smart phones have much better cameras than iPads or tablets, so if you have a choice, take your photos with your phone. You can text photos directly from your phone, no need to download first.
While there is no set deadline for submissions, please submit your projects by the 4th Monday of the month to ensure it is posted before the next News Blast goes out.
