Ever have one of those skeins of yarn that is just so beautiful, that you agonize over what to make with it? This yarn, Fibre Co Cumbria, is a lovely 90% wool, 10% mohair, and my absolute favorite shade of yellow that goes perfectly with […]

My newest knitting pattern is up on Ravelry and it’s 50% off until December 4th. Winter Blooms uses 2 colors of beautiful Malabrigo Rios, using under 1/2 a skein of each before the pom pom. I used the blue pom pom maker from this set to make my giant pom. (disclaimer: I use amazon affiliate links to help cover the monthly cost of my website, but only link to items I have actually used and would recommend. Thanks for understanding!)

My little family of 4 has been passing around a cold this week, and we’ve been glued to the couch and our hot water bottles. I’ve been all about the instant-gratification knitting, and WEBS’ Valley Yarns Superwash Super Bulky is a new favorite, knitting up at 2.5 stitches an inch. Even this mama, with almost no free time, was able to whip up 2 hats in just a few days. I finished them with huge fluffy poms, which I used to be terrible at making, thanks to these great pom pom makers that I read about on another blog.
These patterns, along with all accessory patterns in my Ravelry store, are 35% off until Christmas, no code needed.

Sometimes, those little leftover bits of special yarn beg to be knit up into something special. I’ve been hoarding my worsted-weight Plucky Knitter leftovers, for just this kind of thing.
Meet Bright Spot, a worsted-weight fair isle hat that is a great use for those leftover bits of hand dyed yarns I used a black for the background, so it would mimic stained glass.
I finished it with a faux fur pompon, but you could make your own and use up even more leftover yarn!
This pattern is 50% off (no code required), until September 20th, 2016! You can purchase it here.
