For years, yarn companies have been developing yarns to be softer and more snuggly than the one before. Our most popular yarns have been super soft merino blended with silk, alpaca, and cashmere for added luxury. There is no doubt about it, these are wonderful, beautif...

My designs are born in various ways. In some cases, I get inspired by art, nature or even a TV show. Sometimes I see a yarn that seems to already know what it wants to become, all I have to do is make it happen.

I have a confession to make and it will rock the knitting community. Well, not really but doubtless some of you will think I’m nuts. I have always found scarves to be a bit ridiculous. Store bought or hand-made; it doesn’t matter. When I wear a scarf it always seems to...

I always start out with the best of intentions. I have big plans and even write several posts in advance, just like all the ‘How to Write a Blog’ articles suggest. In the beginning, things are great. For a few weeks or even months I’m posting on a regular schedule, and...

It’s almost time for the next pattern release for A Knitter’s Gallery of Mitered Squares. Allow me to introduce you to Bella of the Ball. This charming shawl is the largest of the club projects but also the simplest to knit. The color and texture within the yarn requir...
