3 new plucky patterns and a special sale!

I’ve had a backlog of knits just waiting for me to write patterns, and I’m starting to get through them. First up, 3 new accessories, coincidentally, all in Plucky Knitter yarns.

Frozen Leaves (ravelry link) is a quick to knit, bulky beret with a lacy leaf pattern.


Hatfield Cowl (ravelry link) is a worsted-weight, reversible textured cowl / infinity scarf, that uses just knits and purls for its lovely pattern.


and the Winter Market Cowl (ravelry link) is a bulky cowl / loop scarf with a reversible rib/cable and garter stitch pattern.



All 3 are quick knits, which makes them perfect for gift knitting. And they’re all 30% off for the rest of November 2013. And… because they all happen to be in beautiful Plucky Knitter yarns, I thought that I’d also take 30% off all of my plucky patterns for the rest of the month (there are 15 patterns total!)

See them all here.

This and every year, I am thankful for the knitters who choose to knit my patterns and buy my books. By doing so, you allow me to continue to do what I love which is knit and take care of my family. 🙂

Weekend Hats Giveaway!

I’m expecting baby #2 in early April (another girl!). Lately I’ve been moving things around getting ready for my toddler to move into the bigger bedroom and I unearthed a few extra copies of my books, Weekend Hats, and New England Knits, left over from the last book signing we did a couple of years ago.

I thought it’d be fun to give a copy of  away, and the folks at Fairmount Fibers and Eucalan were kind enough to share some of their good stuff to go along with the book!

The a copy of  winner will get a copy of Weekend Hats, some individual-sized Eucalan wool washes in several scents, and 2 skeins of Manos Silk Blend to make my pattern, the Greenery Beret, from the book.
