This week’s got me feeling all festive! Two weeks from today is Christmas, and I can’t wait.
I once again teamed up with discount craft supplier Blitsy to bring you a set of free video classes for their site. They’re high quality, and both projects I did for this year’s holiday season are quick, fun and beginner-friendly. If you’ve been meaning to pick up crochet, these videos are a great place to start.
Get your hands on this fun, free & easy pattern for a square knit shawl, perfect to show off those fancy, one-skein yarns you haven’t quite found the right use for!
Colder temps mean that whipping out your phone to check a text can be a chilly business. There are a lot of touchscreen gloves on the market, but why not DIY some, especially since there’s a such a thing as conductive yarn these days!
I’ve been thinking a lot this week about the upcoming Worldwide Knit in Public Day, which I wrote about last year. This year, it’s coming up on Saturday, June 13, and what I’ve been thinking about maybe hosting a stitch’n’bitch session in Chicago that weekend. Would you come?
I’m hosting AllFreeKnitting‘s first knit along, and I designed a really special lace scarf inspired by the season just for it. Take a look at some pictures of the Spring Meadow Scarf in this post and get excited to cast on this one skein, perfect-for-the-season project!
Check out this free pattern for a knit blanket that works up quickly and is totally beginner-friendly!
Who doesn’t need a slouchy beanie? They’re great for everything from keeping warm to making a fashion statement to even covering a bad hair day!
I have wanted to knit a bulky area rug for my office for years, and I finally found the right combo of yarn and needles to do it. What’s so great about this design is its beginner-friendliness. You only need to knit and purl to make this room-warming 5×7′ rug.
