Hi Folks - Yes, that's the name of the new collection, "Northwest Trek." I cannot forget my lovely home in Seattle for 21+ years just because we've moved to Chicago-land the home of our births. This collection is smaller than in years past, but is more meaningful to me personally than any other that I've created.
"Northwest Trek" consists of two scarf and two cowl patterns with names like "Northern Lights, The Palouse, Alki Beach, and the Cascade Forest. With each pattern there is a little story regarding it's name place and two options for yarn choices (one high end - one budget friendly, but good quality.) I would put all of these patterns in the "easy" category so that any knitter from beginner to experienced can easily knit up these little delights for holiday gifts or for their own use. I mean, we all know that we must have a new scarf for the season. The accessory can make the coat look new, lovely and festive, As the fashion industry tells us that this season ruffles are all the rage, there is a nod to the ruffle without being a full frill fest.
That's the latest news. Look for the patterns to be published within the next 5-7 days through Ravelry. Part of the proceeds for this collection will be sent to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, TN.
Peace and joy to you all....
The Green Girl.
