Seagull Flight

I’ve spent all of Friday working on getting the 21 patterns in Brioche Knit Love set up on Ravelry. I’m still not done! But I’m close. After I get that set, I can start sharing the projects on other social media, and my test knitters will be able to share, too.

But I’m not all that patient, so I’m going to go ahead and show you Seagull Flight. It’s a half-pi shawl, and lots of fun to knit. It’s actually pretty easy knitting, because I already did all the math for you. (Blue yarn is Huckleberry Knits Gradient in Echo, white yarn is MadelineTosh Twist Light in White Wash)

I was at the coast at the end of July with some friends, and Becky took these pictures for me. She was a trouper!

It was really fun to play in the breeze! Seagull Flight is one of my favorite patterns in Brioche Knit Love. I found out yesterday that pre-orders are going to ship just a bit early, so you’ll probably have your book before the actual publication date (October 19). Or you can wait and get it from your local yarn shop (ask if they’re going to carry it), so you can support your LYS!

  1. Congratulations 🎉🎉🎉🎉

  2. GORGEOUS is the word for Seagull Flight, simply GORGEOUS.
    You are the cleverest of knitters, dear Michele !
    I think it’ll be The Book Depository for me (because shipping fees), but they ain’t listing it yet. :/

    • Awww, thanks!

      I don’t think the Book Depository will carry this; Library House Press is a small new publishing company, and the big stores won’t look at us until there are more than the two books that we have so far. The only way to get the book is either through LYS (if they carry it, and I’m guessing that’s a no where you are. We have a US distributor and a Canadian distributor), or direct from the publisher. I know the publisher can ship to Australia, but you’re right, shipping is very expensive! I wish I had a better answer for you.

    What a gorgeous shawl! Great job Michelle!

  5. I’m starting to rack up a pretty good list of books I need to buy as soon as I move, and this one is definitely on it! That shawl really is gorgeous, and I look forward to seeing the other patterns, too!

    You have out done yourself! I’ve looked at every pattern on Rav and favorite-ed each one hoping we can it you to the top of the HOT patterns list.

  7. That is a beautiful shawl! Can’t wait to see all the patterns 🙂

    • I really love it! The designs are now up on Ravelry, but I’ll be highlighting them here on the blog, bit by bit. I also have to figure out how to keep a page here on my blog for them, so knitters who don’t use Ravelry can see them, too. Working on it!
