Free Learn A Stitch Washcloth ~ My Present To You.

Mini Shell Washcloth
Mini Shell Washcloth

Here is the 3rd Learn A Stitch Washcloth.

This one is called the Mini Shell because the super simple pattern repeat makes these cute little shells throughout.

I also happened upon a cool new edging that is really fun to do. It gives a crab stitch (AKA reverse single crochet) look, but thinner and you don’ t have to work backwards.

Check out the pattern and video here.

Winner Of The Needle Keeper

Congrats to Katherine who won the “Magic Wand” Needle Keeper with the following comment:

Thanks for the reviews! I’m considering a subscription and this was super helpful. 😀

As for my last project — a Stephen West hat, named Precocious Briocheous, that was my first time using brioche stitch! Lots of fun, and very very warm. I did manage to lose a couple stitches after throwing it (while still on needles) in my bag. I recovered though, phew.

There are still two other giveaways happening here and here. Check them out and enter to win, and be sure to follow the blog. I have a yarn giveaway coming up very soon!

Just Got This New Blocking Mat

I wanted to share with you a little video review of this new blocking mat I just bought. It’s called the Block and Roll by Bag Smith.

I first saw it at the Stitches West show a few years back and was intrigued with it. I like it’s portability and size, but the cost was a little high. I finally took the plunge and bought it and I’m very glad I did. I go more into what I like about it in the video below.

Do you have a Block and Roll? How do you like it, how well is it holding up? I’d love to hear below.

A Couple of Reveals And A Giveaway

I got a little behind with the holidays, but also wanted to try something new. So instead of full blog posts of the values of all the items in my yarn subscriptions that I receivedlast month, I made up two videos with the breakdowns already included.

My first is from Yarnbox. It is the November 2014 box. I got some really nice yarn from New Zealand (spoiler alert: more possum yarn.)


The second is from Knitcrate. It is the November 2014 Int/Adv Knitter crate. It had an awesome scarf in a scarf kit and a item that I’m giving away below, so be sure to head below the video for that.
