Ashley’s Adventures in Knitting: Udina KAL

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! Read more

What to Knit: Nancy

Nancy Bacon is not your typical grandmother from Minnesota. She’s 61 going on 20, full of energy and enthusiasm! We all had a great time getting to know Nancy as we filmed our latest episode of What to Knit. Read more

Norah’s Knits: What I learned in the Yarn Shop

In March and April I managed to carve out some time to visit a few New England yarn shops. Andra, the area’s sales rep, and I traveled with a trunk show of sweaters in a variety of sizes and encouraged knitters to try them all on. It’s a fun, party-like atmosphere with sweaters and compliments flying freely from knitter to knitter. We’ve done this a bit in the past, and there are always surprises. Read more
