Etsy Store!

Open for business, a new etsy store under the same name I use in many other places, Odacier. Also, I have named the yarn that I have been having spun for the last few years:

I have long admired Julia Farwell-Clay's Nordic Star Cowl featured in Knitscene a while back -- so much that I often use it as a teaching example of best use of variegated yarn. Julia has translated that design into a sweater pattern. It is Spectacular I tell you, called Winter Traveller, and it is worked in Doc Mason's Wool!

I uploaded the remaining yarn from the 2015 clip to etsy, but it sold out before I made this post. There are a few skeins of yarn left from the 2014 clip though.

I have also been picking away at writing my first garment pattern, called the Ann Carolyn smock. It's the same yoked smock that has seen many iterations here and on my instagram. 

The learning curve is big, but big learning curves are fun to me.

I plan to release the paper pattern as soon as I get back from a trip to Scotland (I am going to the Edinburgh Yarn Festival!), that will be the end of March. It will be for sale in my etsy store.

There are more, but you get the idea. 
Enjoy your day!

This is all such a great way to bust out in 2016! Exciting. Go Ellen!

If you have any extra time, take the train from Edinburgh to Glasgow, then get to Paisley (just outside Glasgow). My great-grandfather emigrated from there; it was a weaving town, and the museum has a beautiful sampling of looms and fabrics. Also: I can't wait for you to get back and release that pattern! I am eager to make one!!

I may have just done my part in your shop. You know I love Doc Mason's Wool. I also grabbed those Addi's. I am always hunting for longer circulars, and these were a steal.

Love the dresses/smocks. Based on your amazing skill with knitting patterns I am sure that your sewing patterns will be awesome.
