Pattern Description:

Last spring I stood on the bluff at Cloudland Canyon and watched the thunderheads billowing in the updrafts. It was tornado season and after the crazy twisters of spring 2011 I had my eye to the sky. I could feel the cool mist from the updrafts cutting through the warm, humid air and they were blowing the lightest strands of hair from my face as effortlessly as they threw cabling strands of cumulus heavenwards. I thought of spiraling cables, but they proved too binding, so I came up with this lace pattern that serves as faux cables. This beautiful cloud pattern fits like a second skin. Love it? There is a sister pattern: Cloudland fingerless gloves.

When I was 5, I saw a wall of wool, colors arranged in spectral order and it was all over. Mom taught me to knit soon thereafter. Both my parents were artists so they taught me all I could hold. When it comes to yarn in any form I simply cannot resist. Since then I've shown my knitted wearable art, written two books on knitting/spinnig and teach spinning on the national level.
