I promised a while back that I’d post pix of finished projects done from the patterns here, on wiseNeedle, or adapted from The New Carolingian Modelbook. I’m tickled to say that I’ve gotten pix from a couple of people recently.
First there’s Frieda, who worked up these little blues from the Tiny Sock pattern I posted here on String. She’s got a red one artfully posed on a present, too. Very cool!
This kiddie-size Taco Coat was done by Dana. She took the general principles of the thing, then invented her own. Great job!
I hope I’m not breaking blog-etiquette by posting the following links, as I’ve been too lazy this afternoon to write and ask permissions from the various original posters. But I’m posting links to the sites themselves, not pirating bandwidth, so it should be o.k.
Works from TNCM patterns can be found in several spots.
- Two handkerchief borders in blackwork embroidery
by the very accomplished Lady Ethelind of Darkwind Keep (an SCA member from Caid)
- A magnificent blackwork panel, worked by Linda. Very nice!
I’m also wildly impressed by these knit things:
- See Saw Socks, knit by Marilyn (a pattern I sold long ago to KnitNet, that has been reprinted by them twice)
- Jelly Bean Toe Ups, also knit by Marilyn – pattern here
- The Knitting Geek took the basic texture pattern from my See Saw Socks and adapted it for a beautiful lacy scarf
- Impossible Socks done at a human gauge, knit by Katherine (who in an amazing coincidence, happens to be the highly talented mom of an old friend) – pattern here
Since I’m in this for fun not money, my biggest thrill is seeing what my pattern "children" are up to out in the real world. If you’ve ever knit or stitched something inspired by a work I’ve published, please let me know (and make my day). If you’d like me to post a picture or a link, please let me know, or leave a comment below.
