It's the 35th anniversary of me today. Let's all celebrate with the second pattern in the Container Ship Club, Ioanna:
Andrea Frank's collection of photographs, Ports and Ships:
It was serendipity that the ladies of Spincycle Yarns contacted me around the time I was thinking about this design and mentioned that they would be happy to work with me. Which is just crazy, because I've followed Spincycle Yarns since 2007, since before I had a blog or wrote down a pattern. I would never have had the courage to contact them and ask for yarn support. Working with Rachel and Kate has been an honor for me and an indication that my work and ideas are resonating with others whose work I admire.
You can purchase Ioanna for $5.
Or you can join the club and get Ioanna, Chittagong, and at least two more forthcoming patterns for $13 (price to increase with release of next pattern, which, by the way, will be a cardigan pattern. That's right, a cardigan pattern inspired by rusty tankers. Unless I decide to make a surprise design first. Which I might).
EVEN BETTER, you can purchase the very yarn I used for Ioanna from Spincycle here. Save 10% on this yarn and anything else in the shop by using the coupon code IOANNA when you check out.
I'm 35. Lately things seem to be coming together in a way they haven't before. I believe this year will be golden.
