On Jan 23 registration opened for the Tortola KAL – Sweater class. In the following weeks our ranks quickly grew to over 300 knitters working on their gauge swatch! On Feb 20 clue #1 for the Tortola KAL Sweater class came out and we are now 365 knitters strong, with new knitters joining us everyday!
Knitters who join us before April 24 will still get 25 video tutorials (over 3 hours of filmed sweater instruction), all the sweater modifications and knitting how tos for just the price of the Tortola pattern – $8.00!! Let’s see how everyone’s doing.
It’s happens to all of us, our holiday knitting kinds sneaks up on us. In case you need a little help, I’m offering a 25% off coupon for all my accessories, including my brand new Box and Beam Wrist Warmers and I-Beam Hat.

I am so excited to be running my first (of many) video sweater classes on my Ravelry group. There will be tons of teaching and fun along the way. Think of it like a sweater class for the price of a pattern!
The new Twist Collective came out recently, and I thought I’d give you a glimpse at the elements that went into inspiring Ziarre. As with my last Twist Collective Design, Sachertorte, I was inspired by a vintage silhouette (read about my last Design Inspiration) as well as a bit of nature.
Designers get inspiration from many places. Inspiration can come from nature, from art, from the runway or even from the streets. Sometimes a design can start with a stitch pattern, or grow out of a silhouette.
