Stephannie is the author of The Wild West Collection, California Revival Knits and Hitch: Patterns Inspired by the Films of Alfred Hitchcock. She also teaches Aran Lace Knitting in the Aran Lace DVD & Aran Lace Online Class from Interweave Knits. She talks about Aran Lace in an episode in the upcoming season of Knitting Daily.
Her favorite type of knitting is colorwork...and cables...and lace...and twisted stitches. Yep, no favorite!
She's inspired by nature, architecture, and pop culture (she's a self-avowed movie geek). Find her at www.sunsetcat.com or as StephCat on Ravelry.
These adorable, fun fingerless mitts capture the surf vibe of sunny Southern California, featuring surfboards on the palm and back of the hand, palm trees on the thumb gussets, and waves on the top & bottom borders. Of course the surfboard and palm tree stitch patterns are original.
They're super fast to work up, with all the little details I like to include: comfortable, anatomically correct, offset thumb gussets; mirrored images; workable floats; lifted increases for the gussets; and more.
