If you've been following me on Instagram (@coldcomfortknits) you know that earlier this year two of my designs (two!) were selected by The Fibre Co. to be part of their Yarn Support Program for Indie Designers [insert happy dance here].
And so, a few months ago, my mail box was graced with eight deliciously wooly skeins of pure Romney wool, all the way from Cumbria!
In exchange for this delightful gift, I got an early chance to experience the magic of Lore; an honest woollen spun DK-weight wool courtesy of the Romney sheep breed.
Lore is the newest addition to The Fibre Co.'s dreamy natural fibre lineup. One of those skeins was destined to become a pair of warm and rustic pair of fingerless gloves: Celtic Charmers.
And, now, I'm so happy to announce that the time has finally come to release this design into the world. Well, almost. The pattern will be live on Ravelry this coming Monday, October 22, 2018. But I couldn't just release such a special pattern without a bit of fanfare, could I?
No, I could not! So...if a free skein of Lore and a free pdf pattern for Celtic Charmers seems like your particular cup of tea, head on over to my Instagram feed and enter to win! You have until 8pm EST on Friday, Oct. 19, 2018 to enter.*
*Unfortunately, because to the outrageous cost to ship from Canada, the giveaway is open only to residents of Canada and the USA. Sorry rest of the world! I promise, it's not personal!
Hello & Welcome!
I'm Alexis, the knitter/designer behind cold comfort knits. My favourite animal is a sheep (obvi). Second in line? Alpacas. But not llamas--those guys are mean! As for house pets? I'm a cat person, 100%. Other things to know about me? My primary knitting fuel is vanilla-hazelnut coffee. And my inner child is actually more of an inner senior-citizen. I'm an old fogey at heart. Nice to meet you! Happy knitting!
