  • Knitting Rewards

    My latest pattern, Ripple Effect Fingerless Gloves has been out for nearly a week now and do you know what I've be doing to reward myself for releasing a pattern? Well I've been knitting of course! But the catch is, I've been knitting someone else's pattern. It's a true way to relax with my knitting. There is no designing involved, no note taking, no ripping out, no nothing but just plain knitting and it's been great! I've made a lot of progress on this sweet lil' knit. Hopefully, I'll have my Gramps Cardigan done within the week — it will...

  • NEW PATTERN: Ripple Effect Fingerless Gloves

    Woo-Hoo! I'm so happy to release my newest pattern, Ripple Effect Fingerless Gloves! This pattern is very special as it was designed in celebration of The Plucky Knitter's upcoming Plucktember. Plucktember is basically a month-long festival where we'll celebrate all things Plucky. There will be KAL's, contests, new patterns, sales and prizes! You are all very familiar with my absolute LOVE for Plucky so being contributing designer to Plucktember was a no-brainer! Being that I'm constantly inspired by Plucky yarns this new design came naturally.  Designing my Ripple Effect Fingerless Gloves was a lot of fun. I really like the centered cable with...

  • Hello, Shibui!

    Boy, did I get some lovely yarn mail today… Hello, SHIBUI! My breath was taken away when I opened this lovely package. A box full of beautiful Shibui yarns! I have to say, I'm kind of embarrassed that I haven't worked with Shibui before. I don't know how I could not have either… This.Yarn.Is.Goregous. I'm very close to releasing my next pattern and once that happens, this is the yarn that I'm going to be designing with next. I'm thinking colorwork, for sure!

  • New Stationery!

    I'm so excited to share 4 new stationery designs with you today! This new card design and the 3 new gift tag designs debuted at TNNA a couple weekends ago and they got really great feedback - and orders! It's a totally new look to my line and I had the idea for these designs but just couldn't execute the 'look' I wanted myself so I commissioned my friend and fellow designer Shell Stoll to do the illustrations. I knew she'd knock it out of the ball park right away and she did! She is an amazing artist for sure. This design set has more...

    I'm just back from an amazing TNNA weekend! I got back home late Monday night. Tuesday was spent hanging out with family and today i'm back to my studio trying to both mentally and physically sort through all the wondering things that happened at TNNA. So many new and exciting adventures and opportunities are a head for both Knitterella and Jill Zielinski Designs and so many wonderful, new friends were made.   Below are some (blurry) pics from the weekend captured through my phone… (Here's a shot of my booth.
