My Owl Drink to That pattern for a crocheted wine bag is now LIVE and for sale on Knit Picks!
The pattern teaches the crocodile stitch, and includes schematic and stitch drawings.
It’s a great, quick 1-skein project, perfect for a last-minute gift!
It was another 4-year project, but I finally finished the red version of Joe’s Garden!
It is made with a single continuous strand of JaggerSpun Zephyr Wool-Silk 2/18, and I have 36 grams left, which by my calculations, is about 400 yards. The beads are gold glass seed beads, and there are about 680 of them on the whole shawl.
It measures about 6′ across.
My Mosaic Sampler Hat pattern was published at the Knit Picks Independent Designer site today!
I designed and made the first prototype, which I gave to my niece Julia for Krismas, in response to Get Excited and Make Things, which I read about over on Wil Wheaton’s blog back in November.
The pattern costs $1.99 to download in PDF format, and includes instructions for knitting this awesome, cute hat in two colors. The pattern uses mosaic knitting, which means that, although you’re using two colors, you never have to use more than one color or strand at a time.
I classify the pattern difficulty as intermediate because it requires knitting in the round, increases, decreases, and picking up a rolled brim. The nice thing is, if you really balk at the rolled brim, you can leave it for later and just whip-stitch it down (if you’re tidy, no one will notice).
And here it is on my wacky little self:
Go check it out, you majestic knitters, all!
I’ve finished the cape I was making for my mother, and am releasing it on Ravelry as the Raggedy-Lan Cape:

Hooray! My Sonrisa Sock pattern, which I’ve mentioned before and shown here, is now available for sale! It’s $3.50 on Ravelry, and on Patternfish.com. 10% of the sales will be donated to the American Diabetes Association to help fight diabetes.
Also, over in the Handknit Heroes land, I’ve started selling a great knitted mask kit, modeled after the mask our superhero Alex wears:
These were a huge hit at the TKGA Knit and Crochet show last weekend! We had tons of visitors to the booth to get their pictures taken in the mask!
And as a freebie, I released a freeform superhero mask pattern:
Both are available in the Handknit Heroes online shop!
