Our special Holiday Sale starts tomorrow, November 26!

Dear Knitters,

This going to be brief: our ten-day Online Sale begins tomorrow, November 26! Stephanie and I are scurrying around, getting the word out and finalizing the details. Please have a look below for specific offers - there will be great bargains to be found in the following departments:

The special price on my DVDs is a first: we have never before reduced their price out of respect to the stores that sell them. I hope you will take this opportunity to complete your DVD collections, as there are still times when virtual just isn't enough!

As of January 2014, my Tutorials prices will be increasing. This is your last chance to download them for $5 each: at over 20 minutes each in video instruction, they are amazing accompaniments to some of my most popular patterns!

My Sunburst Blanket: available exclusively at Patternfish until January 2014 My Newest Pattern
The Sunburst Blanket pattern and Tutorial have now been released, and will be available exclusively at Patternfish until the New Year. They are dear friends of ours and this is a token of our appreciation to them.
Now that the weather is cooling down, I see this as a perfect time to cast on for a double-knit blanket. You can even get a great deal on the Kauni Yarn during the sale!

I have to admit that I have missed knitting the Sunburst Blanket, it having been a constant companion since March. I held out for a full 6 weeks before giving in and casting on another one. I finished my wrangling with a deadline project and needed something on the needles to help me through the last few travel trips of the year. You guessed it, I cast on another blanket! I started on a new variation and it's turning out gloriously. This one will be the Zinnia Blanket. It's growing at quite a pace considering its already significant number of stitches and I've been immensely grateful for it during the many visits to the hospital (we are not out of the woods yet). Progress pictures of the new blanket will appear on Facebook and my blog as it grows.

Our in-person Sale shopping days are November 28, 29 and 30, from 1pm-4pm daily. As I will be largely manning this myself, please check the Newsbox on the website's Home Page prior to attending in case of any last minute emergencies here.

Wishing you Happy Holiday Shopping and, as always,
Happy Stitches,
