Holla Knits Knitting Savannah

On new designs and moving

I’m writing this in the midst of a sea of boxes (and two cats that jump into them), in the middle of packing up my house for my next big adventure: moving to Savannah.

So why yes, being part of a blog tour is a nice break from packing. I’m really happy to be a part of the Holla Knits Accessories Collection with my design No Glove(s) No Love. I knew from the second I saw Allyson’s Pinterest board for this collection, that I wanted this glove to happen. And I’m so glad it did! It’s a perfect knit for a little challenge, but it still only takes one skein and not too much time. Plus, short rows make the knitting go even quicker. And frankly, I’m a sucker for unusual construction. Why use the same methods when a new one can create the same end result?

This is only my second published pattern ever, so everything to do with designing and publishing is so thrilling to me. I keep watching the number of favorites climb up, and I was so excited to see another project for this pattern. Here’s hoping to see many more.

Since getting my sample back, I’ve been wearing them everywhere. I’m loving the bright pink of the Copper Corgi’s beautiful yarn. Never mind that it’s in the 60s in Georgia, and we don’t really need gloves yet. They’re just that cute.

Well, that’s it for me. Gotta keep packing. Be sure to check out the rest of the stops on the Holla Knits blog tour! Tomorrow’s stop, Baah Yarns, has a yarn giveaway! And who doesn’t love winning yarn?

Holla Knits Knitting

It’s a Holla-day!

I’ve been waiting for this day for quite a while now. My newest design, No Glove(s) No Love, is live and available for purchase as part of the Holla Knits Accessories 2013 Collection! The pink ones are knit in Copper Corgi Fiber Studio Fingering/Sock weight yarn, and the grey ones are knit in Knit Picks Capretta. You can find it on Ravelry and Craftsy, and it will be available on Knit Picks soon. I’ll be talking more about my pattern on November 20 as part of the Holla Knits blog tour. I’m so proud to be part of such a great group of designers and indie dyers! See the rest of the Holla Knits Accessories Collection here.

Apocketmitts!

Congratulations to my friend Flossie on her new design, the Apocketmitts! A perfect knit for the apocalypse survivor, with hidden pockets in each glove to hide any number of small items. It’s part of the new pattern collection, Doomsday Knits, coming in December. Her design is today’s stop on the Doomsday Knits blog tour, which I’ve been following with interest. Looking forward to what’s coming next in this awesome collection!
