Felici Socks

Over the years, I've noticed that www.KnitPicks.com fans LOVE Felici sock yarn. I've always thought it looked okay, but I didn't understand what all the fuss was about. So I bought a couple of skeins of the Harvest colour from their latest release and now I get it. This yarn is beautifully dyed and wonderfully soft. I will buy more Felici in the future.

Happy Valentines Day!

Valentines Day inspired me to knit up this simple pair of Heart-motif Mittens just because they have a heart.

Playing with Patterns and Colours

This month I took a break from working on my own designs and participated in a mystery knitalong hosted by Kathy from www.justcraftyenough.com.

Her Shetland Peerie Mittens pattern was a great way to play with different colours, while trying out some Shetland style pattern elements.

All The Reindeer Mittens Now in Four Sizes

The latest in my work to update my patterns to make them suitable for a wider audience is my All The Reindeer Mittens, updated to include three sizes - Women's Small, Medium, Large and Extra-Large.

Here's a sample using the instructions for the medium size. Anyone who previously purchased a pattern should have received an updated version. 

This is one of my favourite patterns.
