Knitting Today Magazine

Psst, there’s a  new knitting magazine in town, and it’s a sister publication to Crochet Today–which means it’s got a little bit of everything for knitters of all skill levels. The very first issue of Knitting Today officially launched this week, and what do you know, I have a design in it. That’s right, a [...]

Land’s End FeelGood Campaign

I got an email yesterday from my friend/crochet celebrity extraordinaire, Brett Bara. She’s the spokesperson for this year’s Land’s End/ Warm Up America FeelGood Campaign, and she asked me to help spread the word. In a nutshell, Land’s End will donate their FeelGood yarn to charitable knitting and crochet organizations with every FeelGood sweater purchased. [...]

Great Turnout!

Last night was my “Meet the Author” Event at Westfall Library here in San Antonio, and holy crap, a lot of people showed up! Enthusiastic crocheters (okay okay, and my mom and sister) filled up the room and it was a pleasant surprise! I talked a little bit about how I got started with crochet [...]

Yarn-Cation + Upcoming Events

All’s quiet on the blog front because I took a break. A real true break. We were supposed to go on vacation but since my other half’s employer seems to be… let’s say, less than helpful, when it comes to vacation requests, I ended up going to Austin to hang out with my sis+nephew instead. [...]

Take Along Sewing Kit

The Fall 2010 Issue of Interweave Stitch is out!  This is easily one of my favorite sewing magazines because of the modern, fresh feel of both projects and fabrics.  I contributed one project, a Take-Along Sewing Kit, for the One-Yard Gifts story.  I used an adorable fruit+flower corduroy gem that I found hiding out at [...]

Hip, Hip Beret!

Late last week, after the zillionth request for help finding the  issue of Crochet Today that contains the popular Raspberry Beret pattern, I decided to design another worsted-weight beret. Because who doesn’t love a quick, fashionable accessory? And thus was born the Blackberry Beret. This hat takes just one skein of worsted weight yarn– I [...]

A Great Day for Crochet + Knitting

I’m super excited to announce the launch of a new online knitting AND crochet magazine, Tangled. The mag contains both free + for purchase downloadable patterns, and it truly gives equal billing to knitting and crochet. The best part? Each issue has one design that’s “cross threaded“–that is, written for both knit and crochet. Each [...]

Temp: 94 degrees.

Yarn: Superbulky Malabrigo Rasta.
Knitter: Hot and bothered.
So I finished–except for the collar–my Cropped Cardi. To my dismay, it did kind of come out as a knitted fat suit. I left all of the ends loose after sewing up,  just in case the whole thing needed to be unraveled. And then I put it back in [...]
