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.

3, 2, 1 Blast-Off!

Welcome to the new and improved everything Pam Powers Knits.  I have a new logo and website thanks to the unbelievable talent and vision of Amy Sullivan. 

I hope you take the time to look around.  There's a Tutorial Section that includes photos and instructions on some of the techniques that frequent my patterns, that I will be adding to as I go along.

Check out my book (look to your right) that will be released in January 2015. I will be doing photo previews in the coming weeks.

To kick off the new look, I have many exciting happenings coming up.  Please subscribe (box on the right) so you can get all of the latest news and did I mention free stuff?  If you happened to have signed up during the last month, you may need to sign up again.  I had some issues with importing my subscriber list of recent.  If you are already subscribed, you should not get a duplicate email (or that's what MailChimp has told me).

And lastly, I have a new pattern out, Chambray Headband.  It's a really sweet and simple headband with scalloped edge that buttons in the back.  This one is done in Big Bad Wool's Weepaca that comes in some great colors--I love the names.  I am offering this pattern at a 50% discount for 1 week.  Just place the pattern in your cart and use the coupon code KICKOFF.  Coupon expires October 20 and only applies to purchases made from pampowersknits.com.

Smaller size in Ashes and Raw White Weepaca

Larger size in Stop and Raw White Weepaca

Adjustable buttons in the back

FOREVER 21?

Forever twenty-what? For me, that would be a very bad situation—if I were stuck in my 21-year-old brain and lifestyle. Let's see, I would be dating some jerk…flaky, broke. I would prefer maybe Forever 32? Anyways, if you can get pass the embarrassing name of this store (and possibly the annoyance of shopping with some really young, ahem, obnoxious women ((no offense please, if you are actually 21, but don't think a lot of you are reading this))), you can find some really great pieces at prices that make the clothing almost disposable. Here are some of my sweater faves:9-13-14

1. Heathered Batwing Turtleneck Sweater $24.80 2. Longline Shawl Collar Cardigan $22.80 3. Heathered Dolman Cardigan $22.80 4. Knit Dolman Cardigan $17.80 5. Relaxed Dolman Cardigan $27.80 6.

So here is the deal. VERY soon, I will be unveiling a "new me". That is, I will have new branding, new logo and of course a new beautiful, modern website (RIP little knitting girl under the umbrella). If you hang with me (i.e., subscribe by email above), you will get first glances at new releases, updates on what I'm working on, tips, tricks, reviews and GIVE AWAYS!!!! That's right, free stuff. So if you like free stuff, sign up for my newsletter and wait patiently at your computer or mobile device.
