Announcing Betwixt Mine Eye & Heart and giveaway!

Just published! Betwixt Mine Eye and Heart, a cowl for someone special ~ whenever they see or wear it, they’ll be reminded of your love and friendship.

photo-jan-03-7-20-22-pm

Inspired by William Shakespeare’s Sonnet 47:

Betwixt mine eye and heart a league is took,
And each doth good turns now unto the other:
When that mine eye is famish’d for a look,
Or heart in love with sighs himself doth smother…

Knit in the round with worsted weight yarn, the intertwined lace hearts make it a quick, yet interesting, knit.

You can adjust the length and width of this cowl by increasing or decreasing the number of repeats. Keep in mind that doing so will affect the amount of yarn you’ll use.

The pattern includes written instructions and a lace chart.

This lovely sample is knitted with one skein of Tanis Fiber Arts Orange Label Cashmere/Silk Worsted in colorway Plum. Cashmere, silk and merino wool make this worsted weight cowl perfect for a Valentine’s Day gift!

For more information, visit my pattern page here.

Or, you can purchase this cowl in my Etsy store here.

About Sonnet 47: For those interested in the complete Sonnet 47 and it’s current paraphrasing, check it out here.

For CSI fans: I was geeked about naming my cowl, Betwixt Mine Eye and Heart, because in an episode of CSI (Las Vegas), Grissom quoted Sonnet 47 in his love letter to Sara!
