Read and knit along with us! The Read Along Knit Along starts October 10. We’ll be reading The Smell of Other People’s Houses by Bonnie-Sue Hitchcock and knitting the free Other People’s Houses Shawl pattern.
It’s fall so things are getting SERIOUS in the knitting world. There are gorgeous new patterns being released practically every day from independent designers. How to choose what to cast on from among all of theses stunners?
A showstopper during baby shower gift opening, a hand knit or crochet baby blanket makes one of the best gifts. This perfectly squishy baby blanket is a relaxing and beginner friendly knit!
My newest pattern was released this week. Measuring in at one foot by 12 feet, the Plaid Super Scarf lives up to its name!
This wee lightning bolt makes a great baby toy, gift topper, key chain or holiday ornament. Knit in two pieces which are then stuffed and seamed together, it comes together in no time.
Like many yarn crafters, I’ve got roughly a thousand and one works-in-progress laying about, so I regularly find myself in need of more project bags. As I knit and crochet over the years, I realized that the best project bag is nothing more than a simple rectangle with a drawstring top. You can toss the bags in your purse to keep your skeins in order, you can toss them in a suitcase, and you can easily store them with your other WIPs without worrying about yarn running amok.
Fabric yarn doesn’t always make the best clothing due to its heaviness and potential for stretching, so for me, home and fashion accessories are where it’s at when it comes to working with this unusual yarn! This new pattern is a foldover clutch that is perfectly suited to fabric yarn.
