Firebird rising…

Hello!

Some of you may remember my post where I mentioned designing some books, one based on Russian folklore and fairy tales. Well, I’ve been working hard on one design, my Firebird shawl. A classic triangular shawl in fiery orangey red, with a flame/feather motif to start, larger “peacock” feathers, some beads, and a lot of glamor.

For those of you who don’t know about the Firebird, or Жар-птица (Zhar-ptitsa), it is  a magical bird whose feathers glow like fire, often an omen (of good or bad).

I’m hoping that the pattern will be ready for test-knitters by mid-March, and for sale online soon thereafter. The plan is to work one-by-one on the patterns, releasing them as they come, and then compiling them into a collection with accompanying illustrations and stories. It should be great!

        Yes, I would definitely be interested! (and by mid-March I should be done with the commission knitting that is currently consuming all my time)
