Scarves, Etc. 2014 is finally out, and when I first saw it, I nearly stopped breathing. My Warble Cowl is on the cover!

This design hibernated for a while before suddenly coming together in a flash. From the first time I saw it in a Japanese stitch dictionary, I wanted to use the pretty lace stitch at the center of Warble in a design. But every idea I had for lace stitches to pair with it didn't seem to work. So I filed it away in the back of my mind, trusting that I'd figure it out eventually.
As I was looking at cable patterns and mulling over ideas for the Scarves, Etc. submission call, my mind cast back into that "figure it out later" file drawer and I had one of those proverbial "lightbulb" moments: pair it with cables, not more lace!
Within a couple of swatches it all came together: a central lace panel, with cables on either side, framed by plenty of crisp seed stitch.
The patterns can be purchased individually, or get all 14 together in an ebook, either from Quince & Co. or on Ravelry.
There's also a Scarves, Etc. 2014 KAL starting March 17. Check out this thread in the Quince group on Ravelry for details.
Thank you very much for reading!
