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. I’m crisscrossing the country, so I’m bound to be someplace near you! Leave me a comment if I’ll be seeing you.

Tuesday Tip copyThe cross back (or shoulder to shoulder measurement) is the most important measurement in a set in sleeve sweater and the hardest to get right.

On my Ravelry group we are getting ready to start the Corcoran Knit Along (starting June 20th, 2016). * The KAL will be filled with video tutorials and how tos (exclusive to the KAL participants) including one on how to read a schematic and choose the right size.
