How About A Free Pattern? How About Several...

Abundance has been released into the world...

Can you believe summer is almost over?  In my part of the world, anyway.  I know my southern hemisphere friends are gearing up for spring, but where I live the days are starting to get shorter and the night air is a bit crisper - a portent of the new season to come.   

Fall is my favourite season and to celebrate it's imminent arrival and to help you bulk up your sock drawer for the cooler days ahead, I've teamed up with the amazing people at Knotions to release Abundance! 

I'm humbled to be in the company of some very talented designers in this issue, and I hope you'll find knitting inspiration from all the lovely designs they've contributed.  

This sock was actually designed late last year while I was reflecting, soul searching and contemplating on the feelings and experiences I want to manifest in the new year that was about to start.

I considered choosing a word of the year, but I couldn’t narrow it down to just one word. So I’ve decided to focus on a word each month.

The word for this month is abundance. I want to approach life from an abundance mindset. I want to focus on the abundance in my life and not the lack, I want to find opportunity when faced with an obstacle, and I want to share my abundant love, joy and happiness.

I hope you channel an abundance mindset while you knit this sock.  

Happy Knitting! 


New Pattern Alert!

I'm happy to have my design, Perigee Socks, in the Fall 2016 issue of Knitscene Magazine!
These socks are worked from the top down and feature a slipped stitch pattern on front of the sock and slipped stitch stockinette on the back of the sock and sole of the foot.

The yarn is Ancient Arts Sock yarn in Aztec Gold.  It was wonderful to work with.  They are one of my favourite yarn dyers (have you seen their meow and woof range?!?!?!)

The Fall 2016 issue of Knitscene should be available this week wherever you purchase magazines or at your LYS.  It looks like this:
Happy Knitting!

I'm In A Magazine!

Ok, I am not in a magazine, but a small piece of my creative manifestation is; my design, Crestwood socks can be found in the Fall 2016 issue of Love of Knitting Magazine.

These socks are knit in one of my favourite go-to sock yarns, Berocco Ultra Alpaca Fine in the 'Steel Cut Oats' colourway.

The pattern features slipped stitches for textural interest, a square heel and rounded toe.

I think the magazine is in stores now (I have asked the Husbeast to please pick up a few copies at the New Agents near his office).  The cover looks like this:
I am in great company in this issue: Melissa Leapman's Clear Skies Wrap is gorgeous and going into my Ravelry queue immediately along with Kirsten TenDyke's Autumn Leaves Cardigan.

Happy Knitting!
