Hi there!

Wow -- what a fantastic response to WOOLADDICTS . It is n awesome line, and I am glad you love it as much as I do. I'm so honored to have the line in the shop, and I'm especially excited about the Not a Plain Jane Cardigan KAL starting next month. It's going to be great.

It's been so busy, and I must admit, I've been pretty stressed lately. All the stuff. New product launches, classes, retreats, events, social media, and more. It's all good, and I'm super excited about everything, but life has felt a little overwhelming. And then there's the not so good stuff, like my beautiful puppy dog nearing her end. I haven't been exercising, or eating right, or doing those mindful things I always say we should do.

I'm even using highlighter tape to mark my row. What the heck? This is not a super-complicated pattern continue reading

This is a beautiful free pattern that Mary has chosen for her latest knitalong. It takes about 300 yards of each of 4 colors. You can go with a soft muted palette, or you could choose three neutrals and a pop, or 4 shades of your favorite color - really, whatever you want. Mary is using beautiful Aalta Truth, but it would also be stunning in Shibui Pebble. Pick your yarn and join Mary Thursdays at 2 pm

Not a Plain Jane Cardigan Knitalong

The standout piece from the WOOLADDICTS collection for many of us was the Not a Plain Jane Cardigan. Worked in lovely light Air, it's a perfect garment for every day of your life. It works with jeans, leggings, skirts, dresses. Probably even your pyjamas, which is good because once you put it on, you never ever want to take it off.

Join us to knit the Not a Plain Jane Cardigan Sunday, September 16th at 1:30. We'll be working on is Sundays and Mondays for about 6 weeks.

It's a quick knit on US size 10.5 needles, so you'll probably be done pretty quickly. Can't wait!
