KAL’ing this fall…

I love a good KAL. There’s nothing like being held accountable to ensure you actually work on a project. My life is all about knitting/designing on deadline, so it’s really easy for me to set aside a non-design project in lieu of either more designing, or, more frequently, a sock (because you all know how I feel about socks)… But, …

How to: fringe it up!

My latest pattern, That 70s Shawl, is a fringerrific piece of dreamy squishy radness, and as I was adding fringe, I snapped some photos so I can share how I do it with you. (The verbiage below is in the pattern, but the photos are not)… Block your shawl prior to adding fringe. Once it’s blocked and dried, grab some …

When in doubt, sock it up.

I’ve been immersed in socks this summer; I’ve made a bazillion socks (ok, so not a bazillion, but close: I’ve made twenty-two single ones since Memorial Day), and have taught three different classes at two different shops, with a total of seventeen new sock knitters loosed upon the world. I published four new sock patterns throughout the summer; the Socks …

Socks on Vacay: the socks so far

We are about halfway through Socks on Vacay, give or take, and I’m super happy about my sock-knitting progress thus far. My goal is 6 finished pairs (12 single socks), and I’m sitting pretty at 9. I feel like I’ll surpass my goal, but there’s no telling, right? Last year, I made 17 single socks. Wowza, eh? I’ve got six …

Thanks so much!

OMG, friends! Because of you and your support, I am able, today, to donate $403.44 to organizations working to help reunite the families separated by our horrendous administration’s racist and ugly policies at our southern border. We need to keep on doing this kind of work, people. Those of us who can donate money should. Those of us who can …

I’m teaching this summer!

For both classes, we’ll be using my Sundae Sock pattern, and the description/materials list is pretty much the same: Throughout this three-week course you’ll learn how to work Judy’s Magic Cast …

TNNA!

We are knee-deep in trade show life, y’all! I love being a part of this community, and spending time slinging yarn and meeting shop owners and hanging with other wholesalers and feeling the vibes and laughing and funning and connecting. It’s all so so good. These are all of the projects I’m bringing (and hoping to finish) while at TNNA …

Build-your-own-Ebook!

I’ve been meaning to do this for a while, and finally, a few weeks ago, I did the set-up necessary for a build-your-own-Ebook promotion on Ravelry! All you have to do is put five of my self-published patterns or Ebook collections in your Ravelry cart, and the least expensive one is free! This counts for all of the Socks for …

One down, five (plus) to go!

Earlier this week, I had a friend-date with Lorajean and Debbi and it was so fabulous. We drank a bottle of Rosé, ate a table-full of yummy appetizers, gossiped, laughed, commiserated, and knitted. Because of that night, and those giggles, I am now finished with pair #1 of my Socks on Vacay Socks. Introducing my Mermaid Rainbow Down Times!! All …
