Knitted Cephalopod and Bug Armada

Hi everyone - I'm thrilled to let you know that my Octopus, Squid, Kraken, Inchworm, and Pillbug knitting patterns are now available at String Yarns in NYC! I did shop samples in Koigu Kersti, which is a fabulous worsted weight multi-colored yarn. So gorgeous! So soft! Such brightly colored little critters! But I'll let the pictures speak for themselves...

If you work in a yarn shop and would like to sell these patterns, I'd love to hear from you. Or if you'd like to see them at your favorite yarn shop, ask them to get in touch!

Knit-Treat Reminder

Happy Fall, everyone! Even though I haven't been in school in forever, Labor Day week still feels like Buy a New Notebook and Think Hopefully About the Next Few Months time of year. And this fall has lots in store. First up, I'm making my festival teaching debut at the Fall KnitTreat in Bedford, PA November 5-8. I'll be teaching two of the three designs from my Oh Christmas Trees pattern, which is going to be a hoot of a class. And I'm psyched to be teaching alongside such talented folks as Candace Eisner Strick, Kathy Zimmerman, and Harriet Knox. It promises to be a wonderful, relaxing time in a gorgeous resort setting. Hope to see some of you there!
