New release: The Light Cycle Collection

Light cycle

I’m very excited to have released the last pattern in my second collection this week. The Light Cycle is inspired by the different qualities of light at different times of day, and all four shawls are designed particularly with gradient yarn in mind, so they are highly customisable to make best use of your yarn.

Each shawl will incorporate two patterns which explore the intriguing paradox of light as both a wave and a particle. In each design, the two parts can be extended to any size, allowing you to make use of the whole skein.

I’ve always been fascinated by the concept of paradox. Perhaps it’s because it calls to mind my own internal inconsistencies of thought, or perhaps because it is an example of the unknowable within everyday life.

Clair de Lune (Moonlight)

Clair de lune shawl

Super quick and easy knit, very relaxing, and let’s the yarn do all the work. Would be beautifully ethereal and cobwebby in lace weight but I opted for sock to show that this works too. Not formally beaded, but I scattered some little beads randomly in the mesh section for a little starry twinkle here and there.

Soleil d’Or (Golden sun)


Much simpler than it looks, this shawl knits up surprisingly quickly, and is adaptable to a range of yarn weights. Switch between the two main patterns when you like.



Nightfall creates a dynamic effect with a more bold pattern set with twinkling stars. The edging is simplicity itself, just the one row repeated as many times as you like until bind off.



The last in the set, daybreak is a soft, romantic knit, with a gently flared edging. Shimmering and lacey, but deceptively simple.

All Nimble Knits patterns are currently $1 off until the end of the month to raise awareness of the Ebola crisis. For each pattern sold, $1 will be donated to the Red Cross, to help with their efforts. More info here Donations also being collected, for those who don’t need a pattern, but still want to help the cause.
