Windfall is my third collection of patterns featuring the wonderful yarns from the Wisdom Yarns' Poems Collection. I'm thrilled that several of the colorways that I have developed for the line are featured in these pages!
Herein you will find a cardigan using my distinctive surface weaving technique, a lacy shawl, a large scale mitered serape, and several other designs combining the Poems Silk Solids and the self-striping Poems yarns. You will also find a twisted stitch pullover and hat and scarf combo featuring Forte, the new super-bulky yarn in the Poems Collection.
The names of the patterns are female characters out of the Cervantes novel, Don Quixote. The name Windfall represents my feelings about establishing a home in America once again. For a long time the idea seemed quixotic, which led to the names of the designs. Oddly enough, Ulrika, my unwitting stylist showed up at the shoot with a pin for the Maritornes design depicting Don Quixote riding his donkey! Happy knitting!
