New Pattern: Jeyna

I have a brand-new pattern for you all, and it's one of my favorites so far:
Meet Jeyna, a super warm, super soft, wide shawl with stripes and a ribbed border. I've been on a neutrals kick lately, so mine is knit in oatmeal and grey, but I might need to knit another one in more wild colors.
Basic top-down construction includes spine increases on the right side and edge increases on every row, for a nice, wide wingspan.
It's available for $5 on Ravelry now.
I've been working on some other stuff, too. I finally got pictures of my finished Tubularity, and I have another project blocking that is either absolutely perfect or laughably messed-up. We'll see.

I've also started the process of preparing to apply to graduate school. I finished my bachelor's degree in 2012, and I've been meaning to go back and get my master's in library and information science since then, but I've been putting it off for several different reasons. But now I'm in a place personally and financially that I'm prepared to take the leap and embark on this new adventure. First up: registering for and taking the GRE (yikes!)

For those of you interested in my progress on my vintage lace medallion shawl, I have 6/16 medallions done, and a buttload of knitting still ahead of me.


  1. Ooh, it looks so cozy! I love the proportions.

    And congratulations on starting the grad school process, that's huge!

  2. Beautiful! I'm such a sucker for stripey shawls.
