Welcome to Tortola KAL!
It’s time for this year’s Knit-Along!! I am so excited to start another KAL on my Ravelry group. There will be tons of teaching and fun, prizes and a great garment! Think of it like a sweater class for the price of a pattern! There will be HOURS of video tutorials to help you every step of the way.
Once again our wonderful retail partner, the local yarn store FiberWild, will be our official yarn supplier for our KAL (at an amazing discount, plus free shipping!) You can order your yarn, as well as any needles or notions you’ll need. I would not be able to produce these knit-alongs without the support of my retail partner, so supporting FiberWild makes this and future KALs possible! Show them some love 🙂
$8 – Use promo code: TOR17 during the pre-sale period before Feb 20 and get 10% off!
After April 24th the pattern alone will be $8, the KAL – sweater class versions (with all the how tos, video tutorials, and modification notes) will be $14.

So without further ado . . . introducing
Wow, that went fast! Thirteen weeks ago, I announced Patty’s Fall Knitting Challenge. I checked in four weeks in to see what everyone was knitting. We started out with 23 available patterns to work and along the way we added the Flagstaff Vest, Box and Beam Wrist Warmers, and I Beam Hat for a total of 26 patterns to choose from!
We had a final total of 63 projects cast on and now it’s time to award the final PRIZES!!
A huge thank you to every knitter in the Ravelry group who cast on and spent the fall knitting with me, and a HUGE thank you to our friends and retail sponsor Fiber Wild for sending out all that yummy yarn so quickly. Now with no further ado . . .

Last month we talked about how good finishing can make a project, and I promised you more posts focused on the all important topic of weaving in ends.
I’ve written several Tuesday Tips on seaming. We’ve looked as seaming garter stitch, shoulders, and even tackled the dreaded topic of selvedge edge and mattress stitch. No matter how wonderful your seaming, if your ends are not woven in well, your piece will look homemade. So the question is: how do you weave in ends? I wrote about “skimming”, and last month I wrote about how to clip the tail, but what USING that tail? Today we look at

2016 Knitting DesignsRead More»
A few days ago I wrote about all my amazing students in 2016. As I was going through all my pictures I also came across a lot of happy memories of the fun I’ve had with my fellow yarny friends.
I spend about 1/3 of my year on the road. I have a wonderful husband and great friends at home. I wouldn’t be able to do what I do without them. But I also have a huge support group of friends on the road.
Here’s a little peek at the
Life of a Traveling Knitting Teacher!Read More»
Another year of teaching, traveling, knitting and laughing has come to an end. I am so grateful that my job is to travel all over the country meeting and teaching (and being taught by) the most amazing knitters around.
This year saw travel to 22 cities, teaching hundreds of students live, thousands online, and 28 private students (live and streaming on the web). There were ups and downs, bad travel connections, lost luggage , and through it all, you were there.
