Happy Camper!

http://jessicaswift.com/pattern-camp/


Hi happy knitters!

Every summer I try to take a new course and try to challenge my creativity, have loads of fun, and enjoy experimenting with new tools.  This summer I took  Jessica Swift's Pattern Camp. It was all new for me, but Jessica made it fun and easy to feel free to experiment and practice. If you love patterns and want to learn more about how to create them in a supportive environment, this is the course for you. Jessica offers videos, pdf's, and so much more to keep you inspired.  You will learn the tools to create pattern art, create materials to promote your business or sell in your Etsy shop.  Jessica is an inspiring artist and business woman and one of my favorite designers.  She offers extra goodies with the course to keep your creativity and enthusiasm going.  Go to Jessica Swift E-course for more details.

Hope you're trying new things this summer and as excited about Fall 2015 knitting as I am.

Sock knitting for Spring!


I've had this mad desire to clean and reorganize house, car, and office, and most of all yarn stash.  The sock yarn has called out to me and I'm into the sock knitting zone lately.  I feel that some of you might also have sock knitting fever so here are some great sock patterns, books, and yarn to dive into.  Sock knitting is also super portable for traveling, baseball games, and poolside - you get the idea. Yarns come in all weights and fibers, including cotton blends which are nice for this time of year. It's a good idea to follow the recommended yarns in your pattern and to most of all enjoy creating them. 

Free Knit Pattern:  Geek socks from Knitty.com

Book:


Solefull Socks

"The eighteen patterns, most for three sizes (S, M, L), in this book will take your sock knitting in a new direction, literally! Instead of the conventional toe-up or top-down methods, you can now simply knit out from the middle of the sole, up over the foot and on up the leg, with no breaks for the heel and no stitches to pick up. You will view your sock toes in a whole new way when you knit from the ground up!"


 
Luscious Yarn:  Sock Yarn at Noble Knits!



Lovely Self Striping Yarn Selections on Etsy!

Enjoy!
