Tisket Tasket Entrelac Baskets

Happy Oestra, Easter, Passover, and April everyone!

My Tisket Tasket Entrelac Baskets pattern is now available! The pattern includes three sizes. These work up really fast!

This sweet set of three baskets is the perfect project for learning entrelac knitting! They are felted after knitting, so any number of tension woes are completely hidden. Worked in vibrant colors, they are the perfect household accessory for Spring! Use them to hold any trinkets you need rounded up. Bonus: they can store nested inside each other!

They call for Cascade 220 in three colors, and one skein in each of the three colors is enough yardage to make all three baskets!

I hope you enjoy them!

Next week I am in Dallas for the Dallas Fort Worth Fiber Fest! Yay! I will be sure to post updates along the way so you can see what it’s all about!

Until next time, Happy Knitting!

Lacy Shoulders Tee

I hope you’re having a good Monday so far!

Late last week Knit Picks came out with their newest book collection, Renew – a collection of spring/summer tees, and I have a design in it!

Here is my Lacy Shoulders Tee:

It is knit in one piece, from the bottom front hem, over the shoulders, to the bottom back hem. The tee has an A-line shape, a high/low shirt-tail hem, and short sleeves with a lace pattern over the shoulders. The tee is worked, then the sides are seamed and the neckline picked up and worked. Worked in Lindy Chain yarn, it is light and breezy and oh so comfortable to wear!

I had a lot of fun designing and knitting this one – it had been a sketch in my design idea book for way too long, so I’m really happy that it is off of paper and out in the real world finally! I hope you enjoy it!

Happy Knitting!

Free Pattern!

Hi all!

I hope you are having a great weekend so far!A special birthday was celebrated yesterday – my local teaching ‘home’, Cheers To Ewe!, celebrated its first birthday! While I (sadly) wasn’t able to be at the grand opening one year ago today, I was super happy to be at the party last night. Ladianne and Sheri have built a wonderful shop that is not just a shop to lots of folks – it’s a community. And I am so happy to be a part of it, albeit a very small part!

Anyway – as a little gift I whipped up a cupcake ornament, and I went ahead and wrote the pattern for it. So, here’s a free cupcake pattern for you! I hope you enjoy!

And Happy Birthday Cheers To Ewe! Here’s to many more!

Happy Knitting!

New Patterns!

Hi all! Did you see that the newest issue of Cast On magazine came out yesterday? I happen to have two articles and three patterns in this issue! Yeah… so now you see why I was so busy over the holiday season! 🙂

The Stitch Anatomy of this issue was Illusion Knitting, so I have an article on the technique in this issue, and a pattern for some Springtime Washcloths to go along with it:

 

I also have a pattern for an Illusion Argyle Scarf as well:

 

Then, I have another article on Crochet Finishing! And a pattern to go along with the article, my Delia Baby Dress:

I named this one after my grandmother because she was an avid crocheter, and she helped to teach me to crochet at an early age. 🙂 I like to think that she would have loved this little dress. ❤

So, if you aren’t already a member of the TKGA, you should go join now  – there are a ton of great patterns in this issue!

And check back tomorrow, I’ll have a post on grafting in garter!

Until next time, Happy Knitting!

New Patterns!

Hi! Don’t forget about my Winter Workshop hosted by the Charlotte Knitting Guild – coming up this Saturday! There are still spots available!

Go here for more info or to find out how to sign up!

I’ve published a couple more patterns over the last few days. And my very first e-book!

First up is my Thrummed Mittens pattern. This is a pattern that I wrote for my Thrumming class, and now it’s available for purchase. It doesn’t replace taking my class with me, but if you want just the pattern now you can get it!

Next up is my Arctic Cowl and Muff pattern. This was published last year in Cast On magazine, and now it is available for individual purchase!

If you like both of those, then I suggest you pick up a copy of my very first e-book, Thrumming. You get both patterns plus a wealth of information about thrumming! Plus you save $1 off the cost of purchasing both patterns separately.

That’s it from me for today! Until next time, Happy Knitting!
