Free Pokémon Go Knitting Pattern Roundup!

Have you caught them all yet? Even if you haven’t caught the Pokémon Go bug, I’m sure you know someone who is glued to their phone or talking about the nearest Pokéstop. I went out to walk one of our beautiful Central Florida lakes with a friend, and every 200 yards or so she’d whip […]

It is from M. L. Stedman’s novel of the same name, which I gobbled up in one day (and stupidly not too long after […]

HOW TO: Make a Trivet out of I-cord

Father’s Day is just around the corner, so from Nemcsok Farms is a really cool idea for making a trivet out of an i-cord. I don’t know about you, but I LOVE making i-cords. I typically just use two DPNs, but I’ve also employed a French knitter that is also a ton of fun. I […]

FREE PATTERN: Intarsia Moto Wall Hanging

I usually post free pattern links to blankets/afghans or clothing, but KnitPicks recently featured a cool free pattern that was neither. How about a wall hanging? I’ve quilted wall hangings before, but I’ve never knitted one before. This pattern is from designer Allyson Dykhuizen, and here is the blurb from KnitPicks: Whether you’ve knit yourself a sweater […]
