DK DydeeKnitsComment

DK Windowpanes is a textured shawl, triangle shape, knit flat, in one-colour or in a 3-colour combination. Both colour options create a beautiful textured shawl featuring horizontal and vertical contours. The 3-colour combination utilizes colour to further enhance the textured stitches. The pattern is recommended for intermediate level and the instructions are provided in written format as well as chart format …… so one gets to choose which format works best for you!

Adventures, research, exploration and finds were enjoyed in my travels to the southwest of AUS this past month.  Coastline views, rural countryside, botanic gardens, architecture, artists, storekeepers and crafters were some favorite moments.  Collectively all of the days and experiences contributed to a renewed sense of excitement and encouragement.  All of which is bountiful and influential to one's creative process and energy. It is always rewarding and a worthy investment to take moments to feed the soul and enrich oneself.  Those moments are gifts and I look forward at the horizon ..........  to that which is yet to be!  Do come along and join me in unfolding another chapter in designing knitwear.

DK Harris workshop

DK DydeeKnitsComment

Knitwear designer Bonnie Lefebre, DK Knitwear/DK-DydeeKnits, will be at the LYS Wooly Ewe on Saturday February 4th for the DK Harris workshop with local knitters of the Bulkley Valley.  The DK Harris design is a luxurious textured shoulder cowl, featuring colourful tweed and garter stitch patterns, accented with a cable detail.  The DK Harris design was inspired by the traditional Harris Tweed knitted stitch and the colourful Clan Tartans of Scotland.

Thank you to all the knitters who participated in the DK Bellabean workshop class at the Wooly Ewe yarn store in Telkwa, BC,  this past Saturday!  Everyone enjoyed learning a couple of new stitches and working the cable cast on.  All colour choice combinations in the Zealana Rimu DK, were wonderful and each showcases the texture, versatility and personality that the DK Bellabean design offers.  Enjoy the rest of your knit everyone ...... and we all look forward to the project picture posts on Ravelry!

Today I reorganized the DK workspace, dusted off the furniture, freshened up the yarn stash, decluttered the swift and cakin' station and adorned "the ladies" in some DK Knitwear designs!  Yeah!  It is so rewarding to have bright, natural light beaming in the windows on a such cold winter day, some beautiful fresh colours of yarn on the shelf, and an freshly organized workspace in which to dream, create and design in.  Feeling blessed and revitalized.


Happy Holidays!
