Knitter of the Month June!

I've been remiss about running Knitter of the Month during spring festival season.  I hope you all will forgive me!  Without further ado, here we go for June!  You can vote from now until Friday, midnight.

Renee Feamster

Sunburst Hat (designed by Jackie Murton) in Rose Diva Sock

Renee runs a darling little yarn shop in her parent's old farm house in Lewisburg, WV.  Taking a trip to the Country Road Yarn House will reward the fiberista with gorgeous views and a nice selection of yarn (including Unplanned Peacock).  


Barbara Jacksier

Lazy Katy (designed by Birgit Freyer) out of Maypole Superwash Fingering Merino

Barbara is an avid lace knitter, and she has made a lot of shawls out of Unplanned Peacock.

Jennifer is an accomplished knitter who has helped Unplanned Peacock at shows.  She's been a friend and supporter for years!

Congratulations to Laura Goodman, November Knitter of the Month!

Laura is a terrific knitter and designer.  She has been a long-time supporter of Unplanned Peacock Studio, and she designs patterns as well.  She specializes in detailed lace and cable designs.  You can see her work at Dragonwing Arts and her patterns are for sale on Ravelry.

As you can see from her awesomeness in this photo, which was taken during last year's Unplanned Peacock Open House, she has knitted a lot of things from Unplanned Peacock Yarn!  She is one of the guest designers for this year's Victorian Vintage Yarn Club, and she is planning on returning to design for our 2013 yarn club.  Some of her designs include:

Victoria Socks for the UPP yarn club - Pattern will be for sale in 2013

Nasturtium Mittens done with Nasturtium Twisty Sock - these were from the Herbal Yarn Club 2011

Chicory Shawl done with Chicory Diva Sock - This was from the Herbal Yarn Club 2011

Spring's Beginning Scarf done with Bluegrass Twisty Sock

Aeolian, by Elizabeth Freeman, from Knitty, done with Moss Merino Silk Lace

Tapestry Socks done with Tapestry Peacock Sock for the 2012 Victorian Vintage Yarn Club

You can tell she is prolific AND talented!  Join me in congratulating Laura as UPP's November Knitter of the Month!
