New Pattern & Discount: Silver Lining Gloves

Last year I published the Connectivity Gloves, and this year when Feel Good Yarn Co asked me about creating a new glove pattern for their new sock yarn I thought about how I could make a super warm and also multi-functional glove like the Connectivity, but with more options on how to wear and use it.    And thus, the Silver Linings Gloves were born! It’s a glove, it’s a mitten, it’s everything you need to keep your hands toasty … Read More

There are 9 shops in the triangle (I’m ashamed to admit I’ve only been to 3 of them!) at each shop there will be a TYC logo, and there will be letters attached to each stuffed TYC logo, and you have to record … Read More

New Pattern: Two Hands Make A Heart

It’s here! The second pattern in my Two Hands series: Two Hands Make A Snowflake. The first in the series was Two Hands Make A Heart. I really love this pattern. I think that snowflakes are much more gender neutral, and I love the fingerless gloves with the flip top because they are great for when you are out and about and need your fingers to use your phone (or pick your nose?). Once again I am indebted to Katy … Read More
