the big reveal

the secret is out. part of it, anyway.

i’m sorry it’s not a box with an embarrassing spongebob photo inside. but it’s pretty sweet anyway.

please give a standing ovation to my first published pattern. let me repeat that last bit. it’s a pattern. which i designed. on my own. i’m awesome.

i give you nineteen twenty.

as of today it will be available for your purchasing pleasure on ravelry or the sweetgeorgia shop for a very reasonable price of $6.

it’s a weird but oddly fascinating combination of a wrap, and a shrug, and a cardigan, and is modeled here by the ever-gracious jing, who makes everything look good, for which i hate her.

it’s made with 2 skeins of sweetgeorgia merino silk fine, in a brand new fall colourway called mink (i know it’s not fall yet, but we’re thinking ahead, like newton, or vanilla ice). it comes in two sizes, both of which can accommodate a wide range of female anatomies. the pattern comes with instructions on how to customize the sizes too, to make it more or less drapey and to fit those oddly shaped bodies which are still (mostly) beautiful.

    Gorgeous! Must try! (Last winter, I knitted a shirt that I can actually wear, my first of the kind. Now, of course, I'm growing a stomach, so I don't even want to try it on, but this looks like it'll go with a large mid-section too…)

    1. oh, it's just perfect for baby bellies – congrats for which thusly extended! the sizes are mostly dependent on back proportions so it should fit divinely.

    I made a version with cheap yarn (and in a hurry), and it doesn&#39;t look too bad. Will have to try later with better-quality yarn :)<br />
