Best Baby Socks

posted in: baby | 1

Back when I was still pregnant I blogged abut making baby socks out of SilverSpun. If you missed it, you can read the posts and find the (free) patterns I used here. Dash was born with giant feet, so the tiny ones I knit never fit him. He’s been wearing the larger ones quite a bit, and I’m afraid he’s about to grow out of them! So I thought I’d better take a photo while they still fit. These socks … Read More

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!

There’s a small amount of lycra, which means these socks are super stretchy. … Read More

I would spend half of my time catching up on emails, and the other half looking at knitting patterns and saving them to my flash drive. One of my favorite sources–Knitty. Fast forward a few years to when I started designing–I couldn’t imagine ever having my patterns published, seeing my name in … Read More

NC State Mill

A while back I had a wonderful opportunity to visit the mill at NC State. I knew that NC State was known for having a great textiles program, but didn’t know the extent of the amazingness that was there! I went with Laurie Gonyea, the owner of Feel Good Yarn Company. Her amazing SilverSpun yarn is spun here at NC State! The cotton is all grown here in North Carolina too. Thanks so much to Laurie for letting me tag … Read More
