It’s Giveaway Day! The most wonderful day of the year! Woo Hoo!
So, to catch you up, if you weren’t paying attention: Last week, Knit Picks’ new collection Charmed: Whimsical Knitted Accessories launched, featuring 23 adorable patterns!
And (more importantly) featuring two of my patterns! Choose Your Own Adventure Mitts and Ride the Rails Scarf.
Also, featuring this important cat-themed hat. Too cute for words.
10 of you folks entered the drawing, and that means instead of going to some online number generator, or printing out a million little slips of paper, I get to bust out my favorite 10-sided die!
(What? you don’t have a selection of oddly-shaped dice among your knitting supplies? How do you make random stripe patterns?)
I gave it a roll, and…
FogKnits! You’re the winner of a copy of Charmed! I’ll send you an email, so be on the lookout!
If you aren’t lucky-duck FogKnits, and want your own copy of this freaking adorable pattern collection, head on over to Knit Picks (it’s actually on sale right now!).
What? Another new pattern?! (I said I had two patterns in the new Knit Picks collection… did you catch that?)This one is awesome, too (if I say so myself).
My Ride the Rails Scarf is a double-sided scarf, complete with three-color colorwork and knit with sock yarn on teeny tiny needles. So, I’d say it is slightly more “tricksy” than my usual patterns.
But, as much of an undertaking as it may be to make one of these scarves, the finished product is totally worth it. The double-layer knitting makes the scarf lovely and warm, the gauge makes the scarf feel totally luxurious, and the three colors can be customized to match your favorite winter coat.

It’s new pattern day!
(Actually, it’s new patternS day!)
I’ve got two brand-spanking-new patterns in the new, ridiculously adorable collection from Knit Picks: It’s a collection of two dozen insanely cute whimsical knitted accessories. Want a hat with a cat chasing a ball of yarn that’s actually a pompom? They have it. Want cap adorned with tiny french men? They’ve got it. Want cute, customizable mittens?
Of course you do. Let me tell you all about my pattern.
These little guys are my new favorite! My “Choose Your Own Adventure Mitts!”
They are simple, striped mittens that are 100% customizable. Want thin or thick stripes? Want long mittens? Want short fingerless gloves? These guys are for you!
And, since they’re knit in super-soft sock yarn, they’re not only comfy and soft, but also super hard-wearing! (Which is great, since you’ll want to wear them every day.)
