It’s starting to warm up in NYC, and the Spring knitting season is REALLY heating up! My Tortola KAL is off to a great start, and I’m traveling all over the country. I hope this is the year. I’m crisscrossing the country, so I’m bound to be someplace near you! Leave me a comment if I’ll be seeing you.
For those of you that have taken classes with me, you know all about “Patty’s Big Box of Knitting Fails”. I seem to have an example of something tragic I’ve done in my knitting for nearly everything I’m teaching. I recently gave a talk about my fails and students are starting to send me in some hilarious fails of their own. Today’s episode, two never to be forgotten . . .
Knitting Fails – (Guest Edition)
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.

Spring 2017 is going to huge! Eleven events in March – May (yes you did that math correctly, that’s 11 events in 12 weeks)!! If you’ve never taken a class with me, I hope this is the year.

2017 Spring Knitting Events
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!
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.
Year in Review – Knitting Events 2016
It’s bitter cold here in New York, and it’s hard to believe a week and a half ago I was sailing the Caribbean with Melissa Leapman, Laura Nelkin and ship full of amazing knitters! It was also the sneak peek of my next Knit-along top, Tortola!
