I love knitting and crocheting all year round – day or night, no matter the weather. That said, I do find it hard to balance my desire to knit with my desire to soak up the all-to-few beautiful days of summer. Read more

If you haven’t heard, our latest knit-along started this week featuring our new free pattern, Udina. This beautiful sweater – designed by the one and only Norah Gaughan – features an interesting new cable pattern that requires two cable needles for one of the stitches. Luckily, it only sounds hard!

I pretty much knew I wanted to knit Caley from the moment I saw it on our model last spring. It’s the only garment designed with our new fall yarn Berroco Brio, and it was just the kind of mindless knitting I needed after (finally) finishing my Merle from our Knit with Norah KAL! Read more

I’ve paused my knitting to write this post, set my needles adrift in the sea of stockinette stitches that is my Merle project.

Have you cast on for our Knit with Norah KAL yet? The project is Merle from Norah Gaughan vol. 13 and Norah is sharing special designer notes along the way! I’m really excited, not just to knit with Norah, but also because this project offers a few new knitting challenges for me. Read more

I’m pretty sure I created the most massively horrible dropped stitch of all time (I haven’t done any research on this, but I’m confident it’d at least crack the top five).
