NEW PATTERN - THE KAPSEL CARDIGAN!!!

NEW PATTERN - THE KAPSEL CARDIGAN!!!

K A P S E L

With an all-over textured pattern and modern silhouette, Kapsel is a versatile cardigan that is perfect for the office, outings with friends, or cozy nights in. It features a flattering modified drop shoulder, big front pockets, and a comfortable fit that’s as stylish as it is snuggly. Whether paired with favourite jeans or pj’s, you’ll find yourself reaching for Kapsel over and over again.

KAPSEL is a cardigan that has been a true testament of my love of modern, yet comfortable silhouettes. I set out over a year ago to design an everyday essential cardigan with a textured, clean aesthetic and a flattering fit that works on a variety of figures and with a wide range of silhouettes. I wanted it to be worn to work, at home - heck even to bed. Dressed up or down, paired with ready to wear & your fave handmades - I hope it works with your capsule wardrobe. I truly want you to enjoy your best life in it.

To celebrate the release of KAPSEL use code “kapsel15” to save 15% OFF your purchase on Ravelry (only). Coupon valid until 02/18/2019, midnight, PST.

BONUS Your purchase of KAPSEL also includes a link to our Kapsel Help Webpage filled with helpful important information in regards to gauge, pattern stitches and more! You’ll find tips for choosing your size, modifying Kapsel, and technical videos showing you how to work the main pattern stitch as well as the German Short Rows used in this sweater. We hope this ensure you enjoy knitting KAPSEL as much as we do!

REGEN SHAWL - SPECIAL RELEASE SALE!

"Some people feel the rain, others just get wet" ~ Bob Marley

MEET REGEN

The Regen Shawl is now live and sold individually just in time for holiday gift making season (or to treat yourself)! Previously only available in Making: Volume Three - DOTS, this texture-rich shawl pairs soft circular combos of knit and purl stitches with a border that mimics the dots of falling rain. Regen shines in Phoebe by Quince & Co. and is a versatile and light accessory that is both engaging and relaxing to knit. Regen was inspired by the patterns that raindrops and frozen water make on windows and I hope you'll enjoy both knitting and wearing Regen as much as I do.

KNITTING || stEEk-ALONG! TAKE THE FEAR OUT OF STEEKING!

KNITTING || stEEk-ALONG! TAKE THE FEAR OUT OF STEEKING!

So I'm turning 40 this year and I thought it would be fun to tackle my "I'd love to learn..." list! One of the top things that I've been wanting to finally get the courage up to learn is steeking! Yep - you got it! The dreaded cutting of our knitting! It sounds and looks scary but also fun! I remembered when I first learned to sew I thought zippers and buttonholes would scare me forever...but guess what - they aren't so bad once you learn. So once I reminded myself the same goes for steeking I knew I could do it. 

But who wants to learn to do something a bit scary and intimidating alone? Not me! It's always more fun to have friends for support, people to learn from, lean on, and laugh & cry with! So Andrea of Drea Renee Knits and Caitlin of Boyland Knitworks and I are teaming up to take on the steek! We're going to have a EEK stEEk-along!!! That's right! We're going to take the "eek" out of the steek and we want YOU to join us! So don't fear the steek,

PATTERN || KEIRNAN - QUINCE & CO.'S SCARVES ETC. COLLECTION 2014!!!!

Last fall I went after all sorts of dreams. I just bit the bullet, closed my eyes and hit send...on more than one occasion.

One of them was to submit a design for the new Scarves etc. 2014 Collection for Quince & Co. Now if you read the blog and know me you know how obsessed I am with Quince & Co. It was a DREAM of mine to be published by them and I'm so EXCITED to say now that's it's one that has come true!!!!

To design with their yarns is always a joy and to have one of my design/styling/photography icons - Carrie Bostick Hoge, photograph/style my pattern...I swear I almost fainted! I honestly jigged around the house yelling like a loon with my kids staring on thinking this is it...mom's finally lost it! I have had to pinch myself on numerous occasions!

Keirnan is such a fun knit! And guess what - it's a great one for beginners too! So all you sewing readers looking to jump into knitting you CAN so make this! You all know my passion for geometrics and texture and Keirnan does not disappoint!

This reversible scarf is filled with geometrics and texture and is suitable for a beginner & beyond! Knit up in one of my fave weights - Osprey, Keirnan is lofty & stylish! It's the kind of scarf that can take you all year round! It's just perfect for this time of year with our endless rain and grey windy days! It's a wonderful layering piece!
