It’s Never Too Late: Fixing Your Knitting

Last month I was thrilled at the release of my first class with Interweave Patty’s Knitting Bag of Tricks (reviews found here), now I’m happy to announce my second: Advanced Fixes in Knitting.

Fixing Your Knitting

In this two DVD set (or digital download) we go over fixes on the needles in lace, cables, in the round, color work, shaping and more, AND fixes after your work has been bound off . . . that’s right, it’s never too late to fix your knitting!

Year In Review 2014 – My Students

I can’t believe 2014 is has come to a close. I just wanted to take a moment to thank all of my amazing students.  That includes all of my online students from Craftsy, Annie’s and Interweave (but I don’t have pictures of you guys).

Year in Review 2014 (can’t believe it’s done!)

You all have taught me so much and inspired me to work even harder to keep providing you with fun classes. I had a new Annie’s class launch in November, and I’ll have three new DVDs coming out in 2015 with Interweave and I’m working on several new live classes to launch this spring.

Here’s a look back on all your shiny faces. I wasn’t always great at taking photos (somehow have virtually no Stitches South or West photos).

If you see yourself in a photo, leave a comment and say hi!

See you somewhere in class in 2015 (maybe on a Cruise) 🙂

Somethings Coming, Something (I think) Good


A few weeks ago I got on a plane for the 44th (and last) time in 2014 to head to Colorado to the set of Interweave.  Yup, that means I have . . .

New Knitting DVDs coming out soon!

I can’t tell you what the new titles will be, but I can tell you I filmed 3 new classes . . . a shocking 6 1/2 hours (approx) of content in 2 days. Thanks to the awesome Interweave crew, we got it all done before heading off to our holidays.

Make sure you sign up for my newsletter HERE to get the first announcement of the upcoming classes.  You’ll be able to get them as digital downloads or DVDs.

Here’s a few sneak peek at me on the set

Such Concentration!

Make up cloth

Ever wonder what a day’s worth of video make up looks like?

A big thank you to all of my live students.  I’m excited for you all to see the new classes. There are just so many things you can teach on video that you would never have time to teach in a live class.

One last hint . . . for all of you who have asked me over the years about a certain signature class of mine, that is pretty jam packed, “Is this a video class” . . . I’ll now be able to answer – yes!

Why spend all that time knitting a garment, only to stop short of making it look great! Blocking is an essential part of finishing your garment off perfectly. Blocking evens out your stitches, sets your size, and in some cases can even mask your mistakes.  Patty has spent years teaching thousands of students to consider the importance of every step of knitting, such as yarn selection, gauge and blocking.In this webinar we will go over the three main methods of blocking (wet, steam and spray) and learn how to use all the tools such as blocking boards and wires. We will go over the importance of blocking your swatch and how we make choose our blocking method. We’ll also discuss blocking unusual shapes, special stitch patterns, as well as learn a bit about different fiber properties. Come on, don’t stop short of the perfect finish!
