New Pattern: Pines Cardigan

New Pattern: Pines Cardigan

When your handknit loving 3-year-old asks you to knit her a sweater, how can you say no? My daughter V spotted some dark blue Berroco Remix in my tiny stash and requested a “blue sweater with a little bit of buttons”, so I thought it’d […]

Peaks and Summit Hats

(because someone always asks about the boots, they are Keens)

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.

Bright Spot

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.
