For those of you who are So Cal locals, I will be at the Patchwork Show in Santa Ana on Sunday, November 30.  Patchwork Show is Dear Handmade Life’s bi-annual, makers festival showcasing local emerging artists, crafters and designers alongside artisan food, DIY craft workshops, gourmet food trucks and indie music. All Patchwork shows are free to attend and family friendly.  Come out and pick up a knitting kit, like the Mosaic Cowl kit including Imperial Yarn Columbia, peruse the knitting patterns or just say "hi"!

Boot liners make great gifts!

Well, it's that time of year again for us to have that little talk.  Planning on giving some handmade gifts for the holidays?  If your answer is "yes", then it's time to get a-knittin', or at the very least, a-plannin'.  Here are some lovely suggestions.

For starters, how about Brooklyn Boot Liners shown here in Brown Sheep Nature Spun Sport: 1 skein of Stone and 2-3 skeins of Ash (2 for the 2 smaller  sizes, 3 for the larger sizes).  As of today, this yarn is $3.84 / skein on Craftsy who will also be carrying the pattern and yarn as a kit soon.

For those of you who are local to Orange County, I will be participating in the Old Towne Orange Famers and Artisans Market this Saturday from 9 am to 1 pm.  I'll be selling patterns and kits, like the Mosaic Cowl in Imperial Ranch Columbia.

Quilted Lattice Goodness

The Quilted Lattice Ascot has had a resurgence in popularity due to a Norwegian Facebooker, so I thought I'd share some of my samples.  The 2-color version will be available in my soon-to-be-released book.

Left to right: Shibui Merino Worsted in Ivory and Dragonfly (sadly discontinued), Cascade 220 in Silver Gray, Madelinetosh Tosh Merino in Cove (MC) and Paper (CC).  Buttons on blue sample are abalone shell beads, all others are from Textile Garden.
