Angels Club Part 3

So June saw the third and final instalment of the Tri'Coterie Angels yarn club being sent out. The 3 months seem to have flown by and it's almost a little sad that is it all over. It was very exciting to be involved behind the scenes - a wonderful experience for both my knitting and my designing/tech editing and test knitting skills. It was awesome to "watch" all the parcels arrive at their destinations all over the world and see the WIPs begin to appear.

The third package was inspiried by Xi - a character in Nalini Singh's Guild Hunter novels. He first appears in book 2 of the series and the description of his dark grey wings with bright streaks of red lends itself well to a yarn colourway. Maylin dyed this on a base of merino/cashmere/nylon (fingering weight) which made a beautifully soft and squishy fabric.


The pattern "Wingspan" was designed by Maylin, inspired by wings and is an ingenious construction involving short rows. Loved knitting it - very quick and not at all complicated but a unique and interesting end result.


I wear mine wrapped like a scarf but it would also work well as a shawlette if you used a button to secure it. Its 25cm at the widest points so happily for me also counts as one of my 11shawls in 2011.


The pattern is a club exclusive until Jan 2012 but after that will be available for general release.

Next up for us is a Mortal Instruments yarn club based on characters from the books by Cassandra Clare. I'm in the final stages of pattern development for my contribution and looking forward to seeing it all come together!


  1. Oh that's fabulous! Perfect for variegated sock yarns. I actually have some in a very similar colour way. This is going straight to the queue, heh!

  2. Love that shawl/scarf. And another club, huh? Interesting. Good luck and have fun! Can't wait to see the results
