Announcements

The A Nice Cuppa pattern has been released! This sweet cup and teapot (or coffee!) set is written to minimize finishing (seriously – there’s just one end to weave in). Each item features just enough colorwork to delight. The colorwork is knit in portions where there’s no shaping, so you can focus on one technique at a time. Choose from one of four included simple stranded colorwork motifs, or if you’re a little more adventurous, design your own on the included graph paper chart. (If you’re NOT feeling adventurous, plain stripes would be equally fetching!)

I draw for the giveaway of the Zanzibar Doors collection by Kathryn Folkerth. Listen to an interview with her here!
