Houses Slipover Pattern Preview

This post is in celebration of the last row of Houses, a simple slipover knitted in the round, and the last line of Close Knit, the novel I have been writing for National Novel Writing Month. I wrote my 50,000th word while wearing the newly finished and blocked Houses Slipover (or vest if you prefer), and I can vouch for its cosiness. It is knit in 4 ply wool, as I have mentioned before, which makes it thin and drapey, while warm, and perfect for layering. I am in love. I have yet to finish writing up the pattern, mainly because I started thinking about pattern design, but it will be available very soon. Subscribe to the blog via Bloglines or Google Reader or email to be updated when it’s available. In the meantime, here are some photos (more will soon be available on Flickr), and some basic information.

Welcome to the Laylock blog. The purpose of this blog is mainly to keep you informed of what’s going on behind the scenes at Laylock. Please remember to subscribe via your feed reader to receive updates on when new patterns are made available.

That said, I am finally beginning to knit and write up designs I have had in my mind and in my notebooks for months, or in some cases for years. They will be available as PDF downloads, and grouped into ever-changing collections. The first collection will be knit in greys, blacks, whites and lilac accents. You can see the beginnings of a swatch for the first pattern above, in delicious Rowan Pure Wool 4 ply. Any guesses what it might be? :)
