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

Presenting to you, finally: Two Hands Make A Star This pattern is the final pattern in … Read More

Come hang out and get a free pattern, or two!

This may be strange, but I’ve never been on a yarn crawl before, officially or unofficially. So I’m super excited about the upcoming Triangle Yarn Crawl. I’m extra excited because I’ll be participating in a scavenger hunt! 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

So I can reveal what two of those pictures were of. The third item isn’t finished yet…but soon I hope! First off is a set of shoes and baby hat in garter stitch. I think these are super cute. The hat will be available in 5 sizes from preemie to age 2, and the shoes available in 3 sizes for newborn to 18 months. I just love these little apple buttons! The other picture is a pair of Cashmere fingerless … Read More
