My first sweater pattern! by Meghan Kelly

My first sweater pattern, called Hidalgo, was published by Kelbourne Woolens and released yesterday!   Its a breezy square shaped tee, with punky cap sleeves and a zigzag lace back.  Turned hems and split sides make up the rest of the details.  You can purchase the pattern on Kelbourne Woolens website or on  It's knit with Fibre Company Meadow, a linen and alpaca blend 2-ply lace that is lovely to work with.  It's crisp but soft and has lovely drape.  The sweater is meant to be worn loose with 2-4" of positive ease.  The fit, yarn choice and lace back are meant to keep you cool and comfortable in the summer months.  For the same reasons, it's a great summer knitting project. This pattern is included in a great collection called Summer Sweaters put out by Kelbourne Woolens.  The other sweaters are just as breezy and cute, perfect with jeans and summer dresses.  Check them out, I hope you'll enjoy them!

It's a good day when.... by Meghan Kelly

you get everything done on your list.  The career fair is just around the corner and I want a shot at some summertime internships.  Today was filled with impromptu photo-shoots, presentations and lots of computer aided design.  

Here's a peak at the most fun part.  Thank you Sri and Page for huge help!

My very dear friend Sri Raghuram is taking the photos of a project I worked on last year promoting sustainability in ones wardrobe.  I collaborated on this project with two very talented and lovely ladies attending Heriot-Watt University in Scotland, Imogen Broadbridge and Janet Irons.  In this little shoot, the very charming Page St. Clair is modeling.    Our idea was to cut up, sew up, change up old sweaters into new interchangeable accessories.  You can read more about it on the projects pages!
