All three Curls books are on sale for 25% off on ravelry or payhip with the code COUNTDOWN (it works for any or all of the books, just put whatever you want in your cart at once if you want more than one of them). These books are why I'm doing this. Well, let me explain. These books were popular enough that they made me brave enough to actually say, out loud, in front of other people, that I was going to do this full time as my real job. Now to be fair, I was a grad student at [...]
Fine Things for Plain Occasions is on sale for 25% off on ravelry or payhip with the code COUNTDOWN. Every once in a great long while you get a chance to do something exactly how you want with absolutely no thought for whether anyone else will be as amused by it as you are. That's what this book was for me. Knitting patterns inspired by vintage etiquette books? Yup! Hardback book with a freaking ribbon bookmark because your inner six year old knows that ribbon bookmarks marks are the best thing in the world? Of course! Photos taken on a [...]
Silk Road Socks is on sale for 25% off on ravelry or payhip with the code COUNTDOWN. This is where it started. Well, sort of. Silk Road Socks was my very first book, many many years ago. But I published it with someone else (mostly because I didn't realize publishing books all by yourself was something a person could actually do, and I certainly not something I could actually do). And as I have always had more opinions than sense and I do not play well with others, I was never quite happy with the first version of the book. It [...]
All three Knitter's Curiosity Cabinet books are on sale for 25% off on ravelry or payhip with the code COUNTDOWN (it works for any or all of the books, just put whatever you want in your cart at once if you want more than one of them). These were my first books. Well, these were the first books I published myself. The first ones where I said, "look, if I'm going to do this thing, I'm going to do it...all of it." And I will forever have a soft spot for them. I mean yes, I do wish I'd been [...]
Firmament is on sale for 25% off on ravelry or payhip with the code COUNTDOWN. That thing? That thing where you played with a nifty technique for one pattern, but you're serious not done with it, so then you make another pattern. And another. And another. And then you're still not done so you sort of secretly come up with variations for each of those patterns and sneak them in all quiet like hoping maybe no one will notice. Yeah...this book is what happens when you do that thing. It started with one simple little hat, but good grief it [...]
Shoreland Socks is on sale for 25% off on ravelry or payhip with the code COUNTDOWN. This is my most recent book...and it's almost certainly my last book for a while. I've done at least one book a year, every year, since 2011. Taking away that structure this year felt really odd (a book takes about a year to create, and for the last nine years I mostly measured time by which book I was planning, writing, releasing, or promoting at any given time). Given the Series of Exciting Global Catastrophes that 2020 brought, it was probably really good that [...]
Tacit is on sale for 25% off on ravelry or payhip with the code COUNTDOWN. Somehow I've gotten out of the habit of doing stand alone mitts. Not out of the habit of knitting mitts you understand. I've got piles of them (literal piles, by the back door and by my desk for when my hands get cold while I'm typing and in my coat pockets and in the back seat of the car and probably somewhere else I'm not remembering). But lately I've been doing hat and mitt sets (because matching my hat to my mitts is about the [...]
Permutation is on sale for 25% off on ravelry or payhip with the code COUNTDOWN. This is, as far as I can recall, the only proper colorwork I've ever done (usually I limit myself to the stuff where you work with one color per row and manage everything else through delightfully sneaky slipped stitches). That's mostly because asking me to keep track of two yarns per row is almost certain to end in bloodshed or tears (not necessarily mine). But this is so damn nifty that I just couldn't help myself. Did it convert me to a colorwork fan? Nope. [...]
Penchant is on sale for 25% off on ravelry or payhip with the code COUNTDOWN. This is what happens when you have so much fun with hat one that you do not want to stop. But then you also do not want to actually knit the exact same thing a second time. So you tweak just a few very tiny things and somehow get a marvelously different end result. It's also the piece of knitting that had me saying zooooooooooom and swooooooooooszh and vwoooooooooop basically non stop as the swoopy lines on it revealed themselves. Which probably won't happen to [...]
