I'm feeling quite guilty that I abandoned my blog for almost 2 months. Today I'll be a good girl and will tell what I was busy with all these weeks.

First, I am happy to introduce my very first top-down raglan pattern: Rye Field Pullover. Knitted in Anzula Sebastian, it became one of my favorite projects at the moment. I took the inspiration in I. Shishkin's picture "A Rye Field", which many of Russian students are very familiar with.

Once I saw this lace pattern I couldn't take the idea of rye ears off my head. So when I made the swatch of the pattern with this particular yarn color, this project's destiny was defined.

Pattern can be found on Ravelry, Etsy, Craftsy and Patternfish.

The other design called Distant Lights Top and this is my first summer knit pattern. Yes, there is a life of aspiring designer – so many things happened for the first time!:)
Distant Lights is super-fast project you could bring on the vacation as a project and in a few days actually wear it! Pullover is worked in the round from the lower edge to the underarms, then the front and back are worked separately back and forth. Shoulders sewn together using Kitchener stitch or 3-Needle Bind-Off. 

Pattern also available on Ravelry, Etsy, Craftsy and Patternfish.
And there is $1 discount on Distant Lights available exclusively on Ravelry until the end of May 2015.
