The Spring Meadow Scarf Knit Along has come to an end, friends! You can visit the giveaway host, AllFreeKnitting, to find out who won the giveaway, and if you missed the week 6 tutorial video, it’s in this post!
In the new episode, I unpack the math behind one man’s journey to create a knitted short film. Allyson interviews designer Emma Welford and talks about design inspiration and cat photobombs. Leah and Allyson tag team the huge summer trend of lace panels in knitting. And all three of us share what they can’t wait to cast on right now.
Weaving is having a moment this year, particularly for those wanting to DIY wall hangings, cushions, and other home decor items. I jumped on board this trend by taking a workshop and checking out some vintage weaving books, not wanting to miss out on this beautiful trend.
I’ve never met a Worldwide Knit in Public Day I didn’t like. For one, it affords me lots of opportunities to take fun pictures of my favorite thing, knitting. For another, it’s a great excuse to hang out with friends for an extended group session, and – added bonus – WWKIP meetups are usually outdoors. Here’s a run-down of the action at Saturday’s Chicago meetup on Worldwide Knit in Public Day.
Fern lace is one of my favorite lace patterns of all time, and in today, week 5 of 7 of the spring knit along, we’re getting the chance to knit another scarf section with it!
I’m very excited to announce that I’ve listed my first for-sale pattern on Ravelry, launching the Hands Occupied pattern shop. The inaugural pattern is for Turtle Mitts, a pair of hand warmers designed to fit close to the skin, but doesn’t lay so high on your hands that they affect dexterity.
The second episode of YarnTalk just went live! I attended my first National Needlearts Association tradeshow last week, and conveniently, so did Leah & Allyson, the other hosts of YarnTalk. Watch our video for our full take on the action at the TNNA show.
