I have been artistic all my life, but no medium has obsessed me more than knitting. I live with my needles in hand! After leaving a career in social work, I decided to make fiber art central in my life. I got started in the fiber craft industry managing Mary Maxim Boutique in Toronto and as a Designer Assistant for Americo Original. In May 2012, I moved to Guelph, Ontario to further pursue an artistic life. As a newer indie designer, I am building my brand, Ash Kearns Handknitting and publishing regularly. I currently display my designs and teach regularly in Guelph, Ontario at All Strung Out Fine Yarns.
Ospringe Cabled Wrap is a versatile garment for the colder months. Wear over a winter coat for extra warmth or about your shoulders in a drafty room. The cable is fun to knit and will keep you on your toes, undulating back and forth across the center panel. The top length of the wrap is built up with a wide ribbed shawl collar that tapers at each end. This design allows for many wearing options such as open over each arm (perfect for a chilly office); thrown over one shoulder (effortless chic); or wrapped around twice and punctuated with your favorite pin (to keep the coldest winds at bay). Knit in your preferred aran weight wool, Ospringe will be your favorite cozy wrap this winter!
