A while back, I accidentally felted my 4-year-old daughter’s favorite sweater, her Little Hiker’s Cardigan. I know, I know, I should definitely know better. It had gotten balled up in a pile of muddy clothes, and being a distracted mom, I tossed them all in the…
I have a new pattern out this week! Good Cheer is an adult-sized hat, knit in Madelinetosh Farm Twist in “Hydroponic” and “Candlewick”. The pattern is 50% off for the first 3 days, no code needed. See it here.
I used a simple tool to make a perfect giant pom pom on top. Scroll past the photos if you’d like details.
I have no natural talent for pom pom making, so I use these Clover tools to make mine.

In 2011, I knit what would become a favorite sweater of mine. Agnes, in cozy Quince and Co Puffin is a classic top-down raglan pullover with a little something extra…contrast-lined pockets! At 3 sts an inch, it flies off the needles. The original Agnes pattern…
My new pattern in the Miss Babs fall collection is here and my Elm Blanket is in it! It uses one massive skein each of 2 colors of Killington for baby or lap blanket sizes. The pattern is $2 off until August 27th with the code ELM at checkout. There’s a link to apply the code in the pattern notes on Ravelry.
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 Robin’s egg blue Agnes sweater. But, I ripped and re-knit this skein so many times, trying to make a hat design that I’d wear all the time. Finally, I realized that what I really wanted was the texture of simple knits and purls, so that’s what I went with. We’ve been experiencing sub-zero temps in Massachusetts this week, and this hat has been a permanent fixture on my freezing skull. I LOVE it.
First Night uses just 1 skein of Cumbria, and is a combination of just knits and purls for the design, finished with basic decreases. The pattern is both written out and charted. And, if you use the code NEW at checkout on Ravelry, it’ll take 50% off your purchase until January 10th. See First Night on Ravelry.
I’ve released another new hat pattern! Good Tidings is another adult-sized colorwork hat knit in 2 colors of Malabrigo Rios. You can take 50% off this pattern, and any other in my Ravelry store, by using the code NEW at checkout. This code will work…
