I blogged the arrival of Firefly from Classic Elite Yarns last week and I now have a brand new store sample to show you! Annis by Susanna IC is a simple and lovely shawl pattern available as a free download from Knitty.com. After knitting it at my leisure over the weekend, I have to say this really is one of the quickest little high-impact projects you can make. I opted not to include the nups in the original pattern and I’m glad I didn’t – they wouldn’t have been easy to do with the limited elasticity of this linen and viscose blend. That said, the Firefly yarn has a wonderful crispness and sheen that shows off the simple lace motif in this pattern to perfection.
