One of my designs, a scarf called Killigrew, has just been published in Quince and Co.'s new Scarves, Etc. collection:
Pattern: Killigrew by Bonnie Sennott
Yarn: Quince and Co. Chickadee, in the Carrie's Yellow colorway
Killigrew is all about knits and purls—playful triangles framed on each end by an asymmetrical garter stitch rib. I envisioned it as a unisex scarf that could be worn by young and old, men, women, and children.
The more I knit Killigrew, the fonder I became of this sunny colorway. It's the color of daffodils and dandelions, a real burst of sunshine in mid-winter.
It's an honor to be included in Scarves, Etc. The lookbook is absolutely stunning thanks to the gorgeous photography by Carrie Bostick Hoge. I especially like the still-life pages interspersed among the patterns: orange peels on a platter, a cup on a windowstill. They're so simple and perfect. And the scarf designs are so beautiful—I'd love to make them all!
To celebrate, I treated myself to lunch today at the place I named Killigrew after—the Lady Killigrew Cafe at the Montague Mill in Montague, Massachusetts.
Sun pouring in big windows, fresh salad, good coffee, a gluten-free muffin ... I was a happy camper.
The whole time you're there, you hear the sound of the Sawmill River rushing by. Much of this former mill houses the Book Mill, a fantastic used bookstore with a crafts section always worth checking out. (A recent find: an old Harmony stitch dictionary with stitch patterns that aren't in any of my other books.)
Miles of books, comfy chairs, sunshine ... just an all-around great place to hang out, with lots cozy corners perfect for knitting!
