Catherine’s Work

21 Aug

Well, I have been working on these for almost 3 years.  I started them around the time   of our squirrel contest, during my squirrel obsessed phase that has never really subsided.  I started by designing them in my little graph paper sketch book.  I made the left hand first, then changed the design a little for the right hand.  Finally, I created the pattern with Stitch Painter, flipped the oak leaves and came up with my favorite pattern after I had finished the right hand.  As you can see, I am not one for making swatches.  Good thing my right hand is so much longer than my left.  I used Canopy from The Fibre Company with a little trim of Raumagarn.  I am happy to share my pattern charts for anyone wanting to make these.  Just send me a note or come in to the shop.
