New Pattern, Coupon Code, & Giveaway! Perspective Cowl

posted in: contest, cowl, knitting, knitting pattern | 24

This pattern has been written and photographed for nearly a year. The final part that took so long to finish–the layout. Why? WHO KNOWS. Let’s just say, I work well under pressure. I spend a lot of time writing, knitting, editing, and preparing patterns for publishing under deadlines, so when it comes to publishing my own patterns–which don’t have deadlines–it can be hard for me to finish those final steps to getting them done. Finally, I’m excited to share with … Read More

Up, Down, All-Around Winner!

Help me name this shrug

posted in: contest, design process, new patterns | 17

So remember how I kept on posting about the design process for the green shrug? You can see it from the beginning: it started with the yarn, then came the swatch and ideas, a sketch, a nearly finished shrug, and now here are photos of the lovely Katy Doyle wearing the shrug. For me the last part of the design process is naming the shrug. Since I’ve been going through the process publicly I thought I’d give everyone the chance to give … Read More

Bunny Mail Project Continues: Bunny Kits!

I wish I could mail you all little bunnies as part of my bunny mail project, but alas I don’t have time to knit so many little bunnies (not that I have a huge following, but enough to make knitting everyone a bunny a scary thought).
