This is not a drill. YES, another bonus was added to the Cool Classics Knitting Pattern Bundle, and I wanted you to be the first one to know about it.

The bundle is worth well over $200 in value, and you can get it for only $19!
Can’t wait to know what the new bonus is?

On top of the Bundle, bonus blanket knitting tutorial + pattern, and the free Spring Color Chart PDF, when you sign up for the bundle, you’ll also receive the Ideal Me Knitting Cheat Sheets.

The ultra-popular cheat sheets will help you get quick reference information about yarn weights, needle sizes, and knitting terminology. These three worksheets are really helpful for when you’re tackling your next project or trying to read a pattern.

Remember, the sale is only open for one more day, so time is running out. Tomorrow the bundle is ending and once it’s over it’s gone for good.

If you’ve already purchased the bundle, you can STILL access the bonuses on the same download page where you accessed the patterns that you were taken to after purchasing.

Grab yours before it’s too late.

I’ve had some questions come in about the bundle, so I wanted to take a second to answer them for you!

Question: I already bought the bundle. Do I get the bonuses too?
Answer: You bet! We wanted to sweeten the deal even more. Sometimes, we decide to release an extra special bonus, but you never know when. That’s why it’s important to read the daily emails so you don’t miss any.

Question: Are These Patterns Beginner Friendly?
Answer: Many of the projects in the bundles are designed for beginners. Though there are an assortment of levels among our patterns, many of them are perfect for beginners, and then you can work your way up to the more intermediate designs.

Question: I’m not sure yet, will I be able to get the Bundle at a later date?
Answer: One of the reasons we’re able to offer the bundle for such an amazing discount is because it’s only available for a few days. The bundle sale ends on May 4th and after that, the bundle will never be available again, so make sure to take advantage of the bundle now!

Alright, that about covers it. If I missed any questions, just hit reply and let me know and I’m more than happy to answer!

Motif of the Month and 4th Month Knitcrate Newbies

I’ve been busy this past month remodeling our kitchen, pantry and laundry room (still not done). So, though I did upload the motif of the month yesterday (which was the last day of April), I only had time today to put out a post today. So here is the “April” motif:

square

This is the Traveling Square Motif and it’s made with super bulky yarn. I used a smaller hook to make it very dense and warm. You can use a larger hook to give more drape to the square.

Help Me Pick What’s Next

My 1st Pair!
My 1st Pair!

I finally finished my first pair of socks and am ready for even more. The class I took: My First Socks, was absolutely fantastic for learning how to knit a basic pair of socks. The instructions were very clear and showed common pitfalls and why things were done. The first pair is in worsted weight yarn so you can see all the stitches you are making. The class also included a pattern for a sock weight yarn pair that I’m working on next.

Now that I’ve finished these, I want to learn a new technique, but I can’t decide which one. So, I’m asking you guys to help me out by voting. What do you think I should learn next? Or what would you like to hear about? If you’ve ever wanted to knit socks, what would you want to learn?

My choices are below. I pay for all these classes myself, so consider that as well when choosing for me. If you happen to try one of these classes, these links will give me a little bit a moola that I’ll use to help me pay for my classes, so be sure to sign up if you are interested.

I did sign up for the class below already. It is a free knit along and has the same instructor from my first socks class. She was a great teacher and I think this class will be just as fabulous.

Knit-Along 2016: SocksFREE!!

Let instructor Lucy Neatby guide you to sock-cess! In this one-of-a-kind knit-along, you’ll receive two new lessons and a new design each month, so you can knit your way through three exciting knitted sock patterns. Start with the smocked Guernsey sock, as you learn how to work from cuff down, create a sturdy slip-stitch heel and work a toe chimney. Then, move on to the toe-up Serpentine sock, where you’ll knit beautiful cable patterning, the garter short row heel and even a nifty I-cord cuff. Want a project with a little more color? You’ll complete your knit-along with the Windowpane sock, as Lucy teaches you how to work a double-thick cuff, a two-color slip-stitch leg and the swirly star toe.

 

So here are the choices:

Knit Original Cuff-Down Socks – $39.99

Master the traditional method of knitting socks with expert knitter and author Donna Druchunas. Donna guides you through sock fitting, heel shaping and stitch pattern choices. You’ll learn to use three different needle types (double-pointed needles, two circular needles or the magic loop). Even super-experienced sock knitters will discover inspired variations on heels and toes, stitches, yarns, needles and colors. Whether you customize the universal pattern, or tackle one of Donna’s three bonus sock designs, you will love the results.

Knit Original Toe-Up Socks – $39.99

Embrace the time-tested method of toe-up knitting! Join popular instructor Donna Druchunas, and learn how to create your own seamless sock design by mixing and matching different features. Start class by learning about the anatomy of a sock before moving on to the shaping and stitch patterns you can use. For toes, Donna will lay out the steps to the moccasin toe, the wedge toe and the short row toe. When you move on, you’ll discover how to create afterthought heels, gusset heels and short row heels. Want to ensure sock success before you start? Donna will guide you through taking accurate measurements and planning your sock using an included worksheet. Plus, you’ll learn great tips and tricks for polished finishing and receive three free patterns included with class!

Knit Sock Workshop – $39.99

Designer and author Donna Druchunas walks you through knitting socks from the ground up. From casting on to binding off, Donna details simple steps to make intricate sock patterns easy and enjoyable. Once you’ve worn handmade socks, your feet won’t be satisfied with anything else. Donna introduces you to knitting from the toe up so you can try on the sock as you knit and adjust the height of the cuff. You will discover two techniques for starting a sock, three different heel techniques, and usefuls tips and tricks like the figure-8 cast-on and stretchy bind-off. Learn to read charts and use double-pointed or circular needles to create lace and stranded colorwork in the round.

Essential Techniques for Sock Knitting – $29.99

Conquer sock knitting essentials that ensure success! Join designer Ann Budd and learn little details that make things easier at every step. During class, you’ll see how to knit identical socks toe-up and cuff-down, and find out how to troubleshoot any tricky situations that pop up along the way. Ann will begin by demonstrating how to take accurate measurements before helping you conquer popular sock cast-ons and bind-offs. For variety, you’ll discover new heel and toe styles, and Ann will share methods for shaping. With these skills you can accommodate for the unique features of any feet! Plus, throughout class you’ll learn the classic techniques that lead to great socks, from picking up stitches to grafting.

I’ll be making my choice once I finish the sock weight pair I’m making, so hopefully within a week or so. I’ll let you know how it goes.
