I'm the newest member of the Knitpicks Design Team! I've been knitting since I was a little girl, I knit English, love wool, and used metal needles until our Zephyrs came out and I was finally reunited with my first needle love, acrylic! (yes, it's true.) I look forward to getting to know you all!

Hi Nina! This is Laura from Argentina. Do you have any pattern interesting to knit shoes in two or five needles? I've recently bought pure wool in Patagonia and I want to make a pair for my mother. If you enter to my profile you can see my lace and knitted items. Thanks a lot!
Nina, I contacted you many months ago talking about some knitted lace that I have done and I wanted to send you photos but I don't have your e-mail to do it... can you tell me where I can send them? I also finished a shawl with an Australian technique called Intarsia that I can send to you to see it. Many thanks in advance, Laura
Thanks Nina, I do hope the Decision Makers see our need and release the pattern. It is such a lovely garment that I am sure KnitPicks will receive many compliments as we finish the shawls and begin wearing them often. Thanks for your prompt response. Norma
Unfortunately, it is not up to me when and how the pattern is released. I'm passing your messages on tot eh decision-makers and they are aware that there is a great demand for this pattern. I'm not sure when it will be released but assure you that you all will be the first to hear about it when it is!
Hi Nina, I agree with Margaret----please make the pattern for the Fall/Winter Shawl available to purchase. My sister wants me to knit this for her but she waited too long and lost out on the kit. She has purchased the yarn and now I desperately need the pattern. Thanks so much, Norma.
Fall/Winter Shawl. Okay, Nina, either you need to offer the kit again or make the pattern available for purchase. The sooner the better. I am starting to feel so left out. I saw it this past Sunday. Gorgeous! Must have. Help!
Just finished and posted my Lace/cable (Germaine St.) Tomten!! It worked!! So far, I started with Garter to follow EZ directions, then did a stranded Tomten (posted) and I keep getting more daring!! Like your Raglan sleeve classic pattern for our class, there is so much potential!!
Have you seen Burda's Verena S/S 2210--#52 for a striking internal shaping with ribs!!
I started with the vertical stripes--but just the midrift section--(stockinette 3 rows, pbump in CC)repeat--gives an echo stripe rather interesting!! Think I'll do a 2 or 3/1 rib for the yoke and sleeves--great fun playing with stitches!! I'll probably do another Tomten trying yet another stripe variation--there are no end of possibilities!!
Nina,I'll ask here and not clutter up the Knit the Sweater group. Have been reading Barbara Walker's work and am curious about her Mosaic patterns--they look like slip stitch patterns, and why can't they be done in stranded work. You'd save a whole pass per pattern row by stranding. Those vertical stripes still fascinate me--what would happen if I followed the Tomten sweater plan and did it on its side to make the vertical stripes. Would the stretch of the stitches on that large an expanse be unstable? Designers are coming out with the areas of "turned" knitting for horizontal cables, etc. But are keeping it to defined areas--this makes me wonder "what if"!! Thanks so much--I'm really enjoying your class--great info!! much better than reinventing the wheel!!
