Custom Fit: Fun with Sweaters

I am super excited to finally start my first Custom Fit sweater. The brainchild of designer Amy Herzog, the Custom Fit program allows you to create sweaters that fit perfectly because they are created for your specific measurements. If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you know that during our recent yarn crawl I ended up with a ridiculous amount of …

TKGA Level 2 Cables

You might remember from a previous post that my friend Cindy and I are slogging working our way through the TKGA Master Hand Knitting Program‘s Level 2. I hate to whine, so let’s just say the Greek myth of Sisyphus has been much on my mind lately.  Every time I get through another section of the program I fool myself into thinking …

New Video – Binding Off in Pattern

Now that it’s available in Small, Medium and Large, it makes for great fall and winter knitting for children, women and men. You can deck out your entire family! The huge variety of colors available in worsted weight yarn makes this a good go-to …

Knit Picks Pattern

I’m excited and grateful to be part of Knit Pick’s Independent Designer Program! The Knit Picks version of my Smock Top Sweater uses their beautiful Merino Style yarn. I’m crazy for the Kenai color seen here:   I have a Japanese Maple that leafs out red in the spring. Doesn’t it look like fall? I appreciate Knit Pick’s including me …
