Meet Ciel!

You may remember that RainCityKnits collaborated with Heather Sebastian of Joey's House for the Simple Sock Knit Along last fall. The outcome of this was the Doge and Parry sock pattern.

I'm quite partial to simple socks myself but they can be so boring to knit, especially with a solid colour. Heather's Dodge and Parry pattern is simultaneously intricate enough to keep one's focus, yet unfussy in design. I heart it so much.

When Heather approached me to work on another pattern - this time using our DK Babycakes - it was a no-brainer. She is an amazing toy designer and her hipster Ciel is no exception:

As taken from the pattern's description:

Not for those who are beige of heart, Ciel is a sweet monster who likes bright colours and the latest fashion trends. Use up to eight colours to make her really eye-popping!

We'll be selling Ciel Kits for the first time at the Knitter's Frolic in Toronto at the end of April. Be sure to come say hi to hipster Ciel!
