Pianissimo scarf designed by Thien-Kieu Lam

The Pianissimo Scarf is my official debut as a hand-knit designer, and I am over the moon to have it published by Pom Pom Quarterly. The magazine is lovingly and beautifully produced and a joy to peruse and savor. I can’t wait to hold a print copy in my hands!

I was also thrilled to work with Baa Ram Ewe’s brand new yarn Dovestone DK. It’s a blend of Bluefaced Leicester, Wensleydale Longwool, and Masham fibers. I love wool and am always excited to work with yarn from different breeds. BFL is a favorite of mine, and the Wensleydale and Masham are new to me. The long fibers create a durable fabric, and the sumptuous sheen adds a touch of luxury. Dovestone would be great for garments as well as accessories.

Publishing a design was one of my goals this year, and now it is a reality. I hope  you enjoy knitting and wearing Pianissimo. And make sure you check out all the designs in The Wool Issue of Pom Pom Quarterly – it’s a lovely collection!
