Elsewhere: Yarny links for your clicking pleasure

Happy Friday! This has been one of those weeks that I’ve felt like I was dragging myself through quicksand trying to get through my to-do lists, so I’m extra excited about the weekend and some creative time!

But first, I’ve got a healthy stack of links for you to click around in today—

– One of my very favorite projects from the #fringeandfriendslogalong is @sari_n_’s blanket (photo above), and she’s now posted an in-depth video on YouTube talking about how she’s going about knitting it

– Also, Bonne Marie Burns has published the pattern for her beautiful rendition of “courthouse steps” blanket (20% off with code LOG for a limited time)

– I’m so excited that the long-awaited Vintage Shetland Project has come to fruition, and can’t wait to get my hands on a copy

– How are your favorites faring in MDK March Mayhem?

Here’s a guest list I wish I’d been on!

– “I’ll try anything,” I told her. “Just don’t make me stop knitting.”

– Meanwhile, studies continue to show knitting reduces depression, anxiety and chronic pain (thx, Rach)

– Pretty excited about Denim Days

Yes, please

These swatches. And these.

– “If you have ever wanted to crochet an eyeball …” is my favorite random phrase from Insta lately

– and What’s in your tool pouch? A little or a lot? (Tell me here or there!)

Have a fantastic weekend — see you back here next week!

  1. Love reading your blog! Watching the video about Vaila was so peaceful and inspiring. The poem read by Louise Scollay was beautiful. Her English is enchanting! I have the day off and can’t pull myself away from your links. Thanks for such a lovely blog.

  2. Dear Karen; i can’t tell you how much I enjoy your Blog. I am writing to ask your permission to use the Log Cabin Mitts pattern to teach a class. Brown Sheep Yarn has just opened the Brown Sheep Fiber Arts Schoolhouse and I want to offer a class in Log Cabin Knitting using your pattern. With your permission of course. I feel your pattern will give my students valuable skills in picking up stitches. I have made 3 sets of mitts myself using Brown Sheep Prairie Spun DK. They are a delight to knit. Thank you for your consideration. Please let me know if I have your permission to use the pattern as soon as possible as I would like to offer the class this spring. Mary A.

    • Hi, Mary — thank you for asking! If you’re charging a class fee, I just ask that you donate some small percentage of it to a local homeless or women’s shelter, please. And make sure each student is given a copy of the pattern in its original, unaltered form. Thank you!
