Off

Woohoo! A mystery project of mine is finally releasing today, so now I can tell you all about it. It’s so hard to keep these secrets, but I admit, it’s fun at the same time. I’ve really been enjoying working on a small and growing pile of secret things this year. Read on for the […]

Making 2-Stitch Cables the Easy Way … And a New Hat Pattern: Merry!

Off

Finally! The long-awaited cabled ear-flap hat is here! But first, let me tell you my favourite way to make 2-stitch cables. Did you know that you don’t need a cable needle for these tiny things? And you don’t need to rearrange the stitches, either? There’s a fun little trick for making them. Here it is: […]

Sock Stashbuster Slouch Hat

Off

I’m learning to embrace my quirks instead of trying to change them. One of them, dear reader, is that I loooooove sock yarn and, well, any fingering-weight yarn. I have lots of it.  Fleece Artist, Knit Picks Palette, Stroll, and Felici, some Lorna’s Laces, Indigodragonfly, more Fleece Artist, some Madelinetosh… Oh, yeah.  I’m a junkie. […]

Look what came in the mail yesterday! I finally got brave and submitted two patterns to the Knit Picks IDP program.  And they both got accepted! Very soon, both Merrick and the Knotty Baby Hat will be available on the Knit Picks website for $1.99 each.  You might notice that I’ve lowered their prices.  I […]

Merrick: Cabled hat pattern

2

How excited am I about this pattern?  Well, I’ve already knit it up 5 times, and I’m working on a sister pattern with integrated earflaps.  (I want an tangerine orange one for myself, if I can find the time to make it.) Merrick debuted on Ravelry this past weekend and made it into the Top […]

Impunity

15

When I was a kid, I remember reading a short story called “Impunity Jane.” I don’t know why I always returned to that story; maybe it was because I was a typical girl who loved dolls, and Impunity Jane just happened to be a doll. But really, I think it was the word impunity that […]

Super Mario Charts

Off

Feel free to use these two charts in any of your knitting projects! I had some fun making them up. 🙂 I have no idea what the copyright is for any of the Super Mario characters, so obviously these are free, and I imagine you should only use them in your own work and not […]

Mighty Warrior

Off

I just finished up this chemo cap for a small friend of mine. It’s a bit of a merge between Kate Oates’ free Cheery Scrap Cap pattern and my own viking horn design, with some modifications thrown in. I’m pretty pleased with the result. 🙂 If you’re interested in making a similar one, here’s how […]
