Amy’s Thread: Knitter Style – Sislana

Finished projects from Berroco's Fall/Winter '14 collection are popping up on Ravelry - and I am super excited to see this amazing Sislana from Norah Gaughan vol. 15 in Berroco Elements knit by Amy (threadpanda on Ravelry).

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

Knitter’s Spotlight: Sweet Tart Poncho by Aimee Alexander

“Twirliness” may not be a word, but it was a key requirement when Aimee Alexander knit the Sweet Tart Poncho for her 5-year-old daughter. She was so pleased with her design that she also knit a smaller version for her 2-year-old. Still, Aimee was surprised to receive a number of requests for an adult version… Continue reading Knitter’s Spotlight: Sweet Tart Poncho by Aimee Alexander

Knitter’s Spotlight: Centre-Ville Dress and Cardigan by Nancy Eiseman

Nancy Eiseman must have creativity to spare. By day, she designs jacquard-woven fabrics that are used for upholstery. By night (or really, whenever she’s off the clock) she designs with her needles and yarn. Eiseman has been knitting since she was nine, but she says she’s become more focused in the last few years. She’s… Continue reading Knitter’s Spotlight: Centre-Ville Dress and Cardigan by Nancy Eiseman

Knitter’s Spotlight: Comfort Scarves

I’ve used Berroco Comfort to make a lot of winter accessories.  Most recently, I crocheted a hat for my nephew and knit a pair of fingerless gloves for myself. It seems only natural that a scarf would be next on my Comfort “knit list.” As I was looking for patterns on Ravelry, I noticed that… Continue reading Knitter’s Spotlight: Comfort Scarves

Knitter’s Spotlight: Avi by Eileen Vito

Eileen Vito’s first knitting project went to the dogs.  I mean that literally, of course. She knit sweaters for her two dogs.  Unfortunately, both dogs gained weight and the sweaters got too tight.  Eileen says she’s pretty sure this is just a coincidence and not a reflection of their feelings about her knitting!  Either way,… Continue reading Knitter’s Spotlight: Avi by Eileen Vito

Knitter’s Spotlight: Colorful Mittens

I’ve been a glove girl for years, but I’m ready for a change.  Mittens are on my “Must Knit” list this winter because they’re warmer, easier to slip on and tend to be more colorful – so I can easily spot the one that inevitably falls out of my pocket in a dark parking lot!… Continue reading Knitter’s Spotlight: Colorful Mittens

Knitter’s Spotlight: Kat Coat by JessieAtHome

When I was a little girl, I would have loved to have a knitted sweater coat like the ones Jessie Rayot made for her four-year-old twins.  Okay, if I’m being totally honest I still want one as an adult!  With beautiful colored panels, a full skirt for spinning and an adorable elfin hood, Rayot’s Kat… Continue reading Knitter’s Spotlight: Kat Coat by JessieAtHome
