Wandering Cables Throw aka Eugene Throw

(c) naturallycaron.comYay!!  In summer of 2008 I attended my first ever CGOA Conference in Manchester, New Hampshire.  I had an absolute ball, and scared myself silly meeting all these editors and publishers!  What?  Me waste their time with my piddly designs?!  After seeing all the marvelous things other people can put together?! 

Well I sold two patterns to Caron International Yarns that year, Cabled Crossroads, a scarf that was renamed Aqua Blue Scarf, and Wandering Cables, a throw that was renamed Eugene.

Aqua Blue Scarf came out on Caron's site,, this past fall, and Eugene has just now come out on the site last nite/early this morning.  WOW!  The pictures of this throw look great!!!  :D

                                                     Eugene wa(c) naturallycaron.coms done with 12 skeins of's Country yarn, a mix of microdenier and merino wool.  It's super soft, and easy to work with.  It also shows off the stitches nicely!

I also have my first-ever "for sale" pattern up on my new site, NLS Stitchings.  You can find it in the "Store" department.

It's a mother/daughter hat and scarf set, with the sets being available in three sizes.  Molly was my little model, along with her youngest sister and her mother.  Molly was a little imp, of the bestest sorts! (c)

Everything I asked her was answered with a smile/smirk and a negative shake of the head.  Until Mom said she really means yes, even when she says no. 

Right now I'm working Molly's payment for modeling - another hat and scarf set in her favoritest color - (bet you can't guess what it is!) - pink.  But not as dark as the hat and scarf.  Just like her shirt.  That's the perfect pink color.  Ask her, she'll tell you which is the right one!  lol
