Rhymes With Fuchsia

Thursday, December 11, 2008


Yesterday was the most thrilling day of my knitting career thus far: the latest Knitty is finally up, and I have a pattern in it! So. excited.

It's only fair to note that Gwynedd would never have seen the light of day if not for Danielle, who asked me to write it out and who had the infinite kindness not only to knit the scarf (beautiful job) but to lend it to me so I could take pictures. So, gimme a D!... Yaaaaay, Danielle!

Thanks also to Miss B, my favorite model, and to Grant and Brian, two of the most secure men I know. (Brian's picture didn't end up in Knitty, but that's hardly his fault; he was most gracious and patient, and he doesn't even have to live with me.) It is possible that Miss B has seen Ed Wood one time too many.

There are a lot of great patterns in this issue of Knitty. I love bijouterie, fish hat, fargyles, plaited points, and those were just the first ones that caught my eye... I could be busy for quite a while.


  • WooooooHoooooo!!! Congratulations, my friend.

  • Congratulations! :) That's such an awesome honor and the scarf is GORGEOUS. Very Lucia, Queen Of Cables. :)

    Ms. B needs to stop growing. She's starting to look like a Real Live Teenager! ;) Seriously, though, she's got the knit model thing down pat - the distant look, the neutral expression.

  • Saw your scarf first thing on knitty this morning! Then said to Bill, "Bet you never thought you'd see Grant modeling a scarf in an online knitting mag!" We both thought the scarf was lovely. Congratulations!

  • OH.MY.GOD. From the prose, to the models (go girl! go hubs!), to the scarf, and the pattern, it just heaps on. Like this comment. And we both are serious, your knitty induction and this comment. I'm impressed.

  • Congratulations. I guess this means I can add the scarf to my Ravelry projects now, huh?

    By Blogger Danielle, at 5:31 PM  

  • Congratulations! It's a stunning pattern that I suspect will become very popular.

    By Blogger Wool Enough, at 5:46 PM  

  • Congratulations again Lucia! The scarf is fabulous; I am loving it in the lighter weight. Miss B. is gorgeous and the the other model ain't half bad either!

  • Oh, well done, Lady! It's a gorgeous scarf.

    By Anonymous Chris, at 8:40 PM  

  • Wow, it's just GORGEOUS, Lucia! Well done, and congratulations. And Miss B did such a beautiful modeling job.

  • congratulations! the next time I make it to knitting I'll have to buy you a drink to celebrate.

  • Just had a good long sit-down with the new Knitty. It's a great collection of patterns-- they're up to the standard your scarf had set!

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 11:50 AM  

  • Fantastic! And it is a beautiful scarf!

    By Blogger Nicole, at 12:35 PM  

  • I'm just here because I saw Gwynned in Knitty and had to see who designed it. I love cables, and it has left me almost speechless, so I'll just say that it might be the most beautiful scarf I have ever seen.

    By Anonymous Erica, at 8:02 PM  

  • So many congratulations! It is the first pattern I printed out from the Winter Knitty. Pure genius.

    By Blogger Laurie, at 8:46 PM  

  • Most excellent! I generally don't use patterns for anything, but I do believe I'll have to make an exception. Just gorgeous!
