Just barely squeaking it in

As part of my "if you pretend to have yourself together, eventually you will" method, I hereby announce the first official Black Bunny Fibers pattern download, the Faithful Companion Scarf. I designed this scarf with my friend Jim in mind; our annual pilgrimage to Rhinebeck has become a highlight of my autumn.






Jim likes to knit lace, so I designed a truly unisex lace pattern, using BBF Wool/Silk blend sock yarn (I'm adding more to the shop as soon as I get it photographed, but any BBF fingering weight yarn will do nicely). It's a nice way to ease into lace knitting, if you're new to it. No charts, and every other row is purled.

Right now it's available for PDF download on Ravelry, and I'm hoping it will be available on Patternfish soon, too. Since one of my personal goals for 2009 was to get my own pattern line started, I'm squeaking it in just under the wire... I've got some sock patterns and a hat coming soon, too, but not until after New Year's.

I would like to clarify that the model is NOT included in the purchase price. Also, iffen he starts acting like Tyra, he'll get a size 9 wide up his arse...

If you build it, they will come... I love your approach here. And the scarf is great - truly unisex. George Clooney lookalike not included, sigh.

I would just like to know if Tom was told for the purposes of the photoshoot, that he was the "Faithful Companion" - or, if he is a gracious enough person to pose in said scarf anyway?

Also -Facebook wants me to be Tom's friend ... the question is, does Tom???

What a great looking scarf (and the model's not bad, either). Congratulations on meeting your goal for 2009. Can't wait to see what else you've designed.

Thank you so much for the truly lovely post after your father's funeral. Sorry to be so behind in blog-catchup that my condolences are late. No matter what the family dynamics have been, these are powerful events, and you've written so gracefully about it. All the best, Carol, for the coming year.
