Knitter’s Spotlight: Robyn Chachula

Robyn Chachula claims that her transition from structural engineer to crochet designer was relatively smooth. She simply changed her medium from concrete to yarn! Read more

Ashley’s Adventures in Knitting: Holiday Gift KAL

I’ve been dying to get my hands (or more accurately, my needles) on Berroco Kodiak, so I was thrilled that Aude was chosen as the project for our Holiday Gift Knit-Along! Now I get to play with Kodiak and I don’t have to feel bad about buying more yarn, because I’m making it as a present!

Knitter’s Spotlight: A La Mode by Lori Versaci

With the name a la mode, it’s no surprise that Lori Versaci’s handknit sweater was actually inspired by a look on the runway at New York Fashion Week.  It was few years back that she saw a metallic pullover sweater paired with a stiff, straight skirt. It looked like a kind of fashionable armor. Soon, Lori was mixing pattern stitches and knitting her new design. Read more

Ashley’s Adventures in Knitting: Caley

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

Knitter’s Spotlight: Coffee & Yarn Hat by Kathy Ticho

If there are two things Kathy Ticho knows, it’s coffee & yarn. In fact, she owns a combined yarn shop and coffee house called Knitche, which caters to knitters, crocheters and spinners in the Chicago area, who also enjoy a good cup of coffee or tea. So it’s no surprise that her most recent design combines both these passions. Read more

If you’re new to cables, too, or just looking for a beautiful project, Angela Dickson’s Braid Station is a perfect place to start! Read more

Knitter’s Spotlight: Baby’s First BFF by Mary Triplett

Mary Triplett’s latest design was something of a personal challenge. She often sews teddy bears for people, but this time she wanted to see if she could knit a teddy bear on a blanket using a variety of stitches. “I even had to invent some new stitches because I couldn’t find a stitch that worked just right.” Read more

Norah’s Knits: Cable Cardigan Tips and Tricks

If you’ve been following our Merle Cardigan KAL, you know that both Ashley and I have been knitting right along with the rest of the Ravelers and we’re both looking forward to wearing our FO’s. Making a Merle for myself was a great reminder of the all the places along the way that might be tricky – that I have a few tips for and opinions about.  I posted some of these thoughts in the thread of the KAL, but I thought it would be a good idea to gather them together in one place, for easy reference.
