Meet Anna

You will remember that this summer, I participated in a mystery KAL with designer Anna Dalvi. Anna is a fellow Canadian and her designs are beautiful!

I first discovered Anna's talent for myself, earlier this spring, when she contacted us about using one of our yarns for one of her designs.

A quick look at her design page - and you know there was no way I was saying no.

So Anna chose her yarn (Twinkle Cat Gold in Dragon Heart), it was sent off, and I waited to see what she would do with it. Last week, she unveiled her creation...
I was not disappointed. The pattern is Eragon. (I love the little detail up the side of the thumb)! It's part of her "Seven Fingerless Mitts" e-book - and the other designs are just as lovely (and there are still three more to come!).

If you haven't checked out her design page on Ravelry, I seriously suggest you do. She's just put out a lace book that is truly magnificent - it's going on my Christmas wish list!

It is definitely an honour to have our yarn featured in one of her designs!

OMG those are awesome!!! And I've read those books so have an extra appreciation! That may just be another e-book I have to add to my collection!

Gorgeous design! Too bad I'm too lazy to knit those little finger bits.I especially like the ribbing across the top of the hand - looks like they wouldn't be baggy like so many other gloves are!

I will have to check her out. Your yarn knitted up beautifully in that design too.

Ooh, I like those! I've been a little frustrated with fingerless mittens and was thinking fingerless gloves are the way to go. Will have to try some of these patterns. Thanks for the introduction!
