Announcements

Hello to blessedspeedy (Dianne in Mead, Australia),  (Manda from Hampshire, England), yarngirl32 (Joyce from Cincinnati, USA),  (Heidi from Fall River, MA) who introduced themselves in the Kino Knits Ravelry group Introduce Yourself thread!

Thank you to Greg Cohoon of the Unraveling with Greg and Joey podcast for sending me his new hat pattern, Smoke in the City.

My newest designs are under The Tolstoy Collection!

Anna Karenina (one color) and War and Peace (two colors) are live now. The Three Questions (three colors) will be released April 6. All feature garter stitch with added lace, texture or color play for interest, and all are based on weighing your yarn, so they are flexible in terms of yardage. This means they’re perfect for handspun!

Now until April 6, 2018, the entire collection is just $5 with the Ravelry checkout code LEV (or just click here to have the coupon code added automatically – will only work through April 6). The patterns will populate your Ravelry library as they are released.
