When I finish a knitting project, or even just finish a skein of yarn, I’m often met with a slight dilemma: what to do with my yarn labels. For the longest time, I’d just shove them into the middled of a densely-packed gallon zipper bag, end of story. Then I started designing.
I know a lot of you are already great knitters and are eager to see more of my non-beginner content. So now that it’s March and spring is in the air, I’ve got a couple ideas for transitional weather patterns. What sort of springy patterns would you guys like to see this spring?
As it’s officially March, we’re starting to see early signs of spring on blogs and in new pattern releases from designers. This transitional time tends to bring lighter outerwear, sweaters, and non-garment ideas.
Like many pattern designers, my design process begins with knitting (or crocheting) swatches. Since I’m designing this in conjunction with a publisher, my editor and I have been emailing back and forth to decide which motifs are working for us both. A big help in the design process has been my new HP Sprout.

Let’s look at some pretty yarn crafts as we look ahead to the weekend.
As usual, the first month of the new year has flown by in a a flurry of blog posts, new business adventures and a whole bunch of knitting and crochet. The most hibernatey month of the year, it’s almost like January was made for catching up on the things that fell behind during the holidays and getting ahead on new projects.
There will always be more yarn crafts I want to do than I can ever do. I should get that embroidered on some kind of pillow or on a print. Let’s add to that list right now with this list of yarn crafts that have caught my eye this week!
