  • ME on Knitting Daily TV!

    If you follow me on Facebook and Twitter, earlier this year I gave a hint to some exciting news that involved me, PBS and Vickie Howell. What that exciting news is, is that I'm going to be on the upcoming 1300 series of the Telly award winning show Knitting Daily TV with Vickie Howell!!!I will be a virtual guest during the Space to Space segment on the Fair Isle Style episode. During my virtual 'hangout' with Vickie, her and I chat about my modern take on Fair Isle knitting and about how my graphic design background influences my colorwork designs....

  • PATTERN: Wavelength

    My Wavelength pattern that was designed exclusively for The Plucky Shindig is live to the public today!  A chevron like wave embellishes the top and bottom of these fun fingerless mitts as well as the brim of this comfy hat. Inspired by The Plucky Knitter’s beautiful yarn and colors, these mitts are as much fun to knit as they are to wear!  This set is knit using one skein of Plucky Feet in colorway Lawnornament and one skein of Plucky Feet in colorway Charming. The yardage on Plucky Feet is so generous that if I switched up my main color...

  • Plucky Shindig 2014 Photobook

    May sure was a busy and fun month for me. Not only did I go to TNNA at the beginning of the month but at the end of the month I got to go and be a part of The Plucky Shindig! The Plucky retreat last year was a great time and this year's retreat was a wonderful time as well. It was beyond wonderful actually! I'm so thankful I was able to have my own Knitterella table within the Shindig Marketplace and so thankful to spend 2 full days with the wonderful Plucky crew. I just love Sarah and...

  • TNNA 2014 Photobook

    It's hard to believe it's already been a week since TNNA. TNNA is such a wonderful show to go to. It's great for business, networking and inspiration but my favorite part is being about catching up in-person with my friends in the industry that I usually only get to 'see' via the internet. It's so wonderful to be surrounded by people with the same passion for knitting! Below are some pics from the show…   Here I am in my happy place - my booth!   I made sure I snagged a signed copy of Wendy Bernard of Knit And Tonic's new...

  • GIVEAWAY: Green Gables Knits

    Although it's been a long time since the blog post of me starting my Diana's Hat, it really didn't take long to knit at all. This quick knit, slouchy hat was a fun and relaxing knit. The brim had just enough detail to keep my needles interested and yet I didn't find I needed to keep reading the directions on what to do next. This easy to wear hat will soon be giving to a friend for her birthday. I think she'll love it! This is just one of the beautiful patterns found in Green Gables Knits. Fellow knit wear...

  • Got Baby Socks?

    Got any baby knit sock patterns that stay on that is… Threw the years, and my 3 boys, I have had my share of cute knitted baby socks and booties that were both made by me and that were given as gifts.  I love knitted socks and booties for my babies but the problem is this… They start out cute and looking like so… but it doesn't take long until the socks are falling off… and I've got cool little baby feet to cover up again. I have yet to find a knitting pattern that produces a sock or bootie...

  • WIP: Diana's Hat

    Just like that the month of January is nearly over and I have yet to do a second blog post for 2014. So is the life of a WAHM of 2 businesses and 3 boys under 4 ;) Today, however, I am making a point to blog and not let January go by completely without at least one more post. I hope there are more posts in not so distant future too because so far 2014 is already shaping up to be a great year for Knitterella. Can't wait to share with you some new patterns, products and exciting news!...
