I’m so thrilled with the responses I’ve gotten to my newest dk blanket design which was pre-released last week!
I’ve been working on the SnowFire Blanket for many months–I started this project at home in Nova Scotia, it was my constant companion throughout John’s and my time on the UK Canal system, and I’ve been happily knitting on it since my return.
This project makes for wonderful travel knitting: interesting, colourful, technically pleasing, but still portable and fun. My blanket is certainly well-travelled: as a matter of fact, it is with me in Quebec right now!
The SnowFire DK Blanket pattern is more of a workshop-in-a-pattern, as it includes 15 instructional videos and detailed Stitch-Maps charts.
I had such fun choosing the KnitCircus gradient yarns I would use for the blanket, and am thrilled with the results. The yarn is gorgeous, a treat to work with and so extraordinarily soft.
How exciting, too, that the good folks at KnitCircus Yarns have put together a yarn pack based on the colours I used for my blanket!
I am nearing the end now, and am applying edge treatments as we speak. It’s been a gloriously enjoyable project, one which I will miss.

Please note that the SnowFire DK Blanket is currently a pattern-in-progress.
While it is still on my needles and the pattern under construction, it is fit for use. I will continue to update it until it is complete with final pictures, video links and layout.
Happy DK Stitches!
