To celebrate Valentine's Day, selected patterns in my Ravelry shop are available at a 25% discount until February 16, 2018 using coupon code VAL2018.
The colorwork in these mittens needed blocking to even out the stitches so I decided to make my own custom mitten blockers. It worked perfectly and needed only the sacrifice of an inexpensive plastic or vinyl placemat. I've created a tutorial that gives step-by-step instructions for making these mitten blockers. They're so quick and easy that you could make a set to fit everyone on your gift list.
Winter’s back! Grab your needles and enjoy a 25% discount on patterns to help you bundle up against the winter cold. You can knit while I tune up the snowmachine and dig out my parka.
The discount applies to all of my self-published patterns in my Ravelry store, so take your pick and knit something warm! The discount is valid until October 27, 2017.
The pattern for Ice Blink Socks was originally designed for and published by Ancient Arts Fibre Crafts to showcase their gorgeous sockweight yarn. The exclusivity period for the design has now expired, so I have self-published the pattern and made it available in my Ravelry store and on Loveknitting, Patternfish and Craftsy.
Just in time for gift knitting... a new scarf pattern! Hidden Gem Scarf is a luxurious little scarf requiring just a single skein of laceweight yarn. The sample is worked in qiviut, yarn spun from muskox fibre, which is incredibly light yet delivers exceptional warmth and softness.
I've just released the pattern for Pebbled Pathways Fingerless Mitts. These fingerless mitts feature a lovely knotted cable pattern interacting with basic ribbing. The resulting fabric is close-fitting yet comfortable. The stretchy fabric will accommodate a variety of hand sizes although fit can be further adjusted by changing needle size.
Introducing a new hat pattern... Backwoods Hat! This casual unisex hat features staggered layers of ribbing intended to provide extra warmth over the top of the ears. The ribbed borders are worked separately and then joined together before working the body of the hat in stockinette.
This hat is intended to be worn with negative ease and pulled down so that the double layer of ribbing covers the top of the ears. My model claims that he might actually wear this hat! I'm hoping that the matching one that I made for myself in burgundy and beige will fit under my snowmobile helmet.
