I was a guest blogger and designer on Tolt Yarn and Wool’s blog today. It was a lot of fun to put it all together! The post includes a sweet little freebie pattern called Medicine Pouch. I hope everyone enjoys it!
Wow! It's been awhile since my last blog post! To make up for my absence, I have a fun little giveaway for you today. The sweet and talented Joanna Johnson of Slate Falls Press sent over a copy of her newest release Green Gables Knits., and I'm so happy that she did. It's a lovely and unique knitting pattern book that is filled with eight sweet patterns. The collection was inspired by Anne of Green Gables and is so thoughtfully put together. There are quite a few favorites in this book that I have added to my ever growing queue...
Tolt Yarn & Wool, the shop I work at, is having their first sweater KAL and guess which pattern we have chosen! We'll be knitting the Anne's Sweater and we have well over 20 folks signed up to participate. It's going to be fantastic!
Leave a comment by 1/21/14 letting us know which pattern in the book is your favorite. One winner will be randomly chosen to receive a signed copy of Green Gables Knits.
I love knitting for wee ones. It's very gratifying and little garments are just so darn cute! Friends of ours recently had their second baby girl, so what better way to celebrate the arrival than with knitted goodies?! I knit a tiny baby sweater + hat for baby and a sweater + this doll for the big sister, so she wouldn't feel left out. I got to drop off the gifts last week and hold the day old baby. It was amazing! I honestly don't remember my girl ever being that little, but she was. How quickly it all goes...

My favorite knit out of this bunch was the Wee Ambrosia! Gudrun is a master and now I want to knit myself the adult version. A customer who came into Tolt this past weekend actually bought some Cascade Superwash 128 for a child's version (chest size 27", Ambrosia pattern, not Wee Ambrosia) and I'm excited to see how it turns out. Also, the mama was thrilled with the gifts and that made my heart sing.
