Celebrate Kristin's 10th Anniversary with TWO Volumes of Knit and Crochet Patterns!

Ten years ago, I left a volatile marriage and the Middle East with a 22 month old baby, a suitcase filled with clothes and knitting/crochet supplies and travelled 8000 miles with the dream of safety and a better life. I wanted desperately to be a stay at home mom to my son and work around his schedule -- into the middle of the night if needed -- creating a business out of my knitting and crochet designs.

I have made mistakes along the way. Oh boy, have I ever! I have also been in the right place at the right time, and made incredible contacts. I have worked hard, developed a solid reputation as a professional, and given my blood, sweat and tears to making a living for my son and me.

Ten years later, I am proud to say I have the experieces of 10 seasons on a crafting TV show! And I'm the published author of 8 books! I have designed well over 300 knit and crochet patterns for magazines and yarn companies in the industry, and written dozens of articles. My Wrapture product line (delicate wash and solid perfume) make me so proud and happy. Not only do I love them, but hearing how much others love it too makes my heart smile. I have worked with some of the most talented and creative people on the planet and I am proud to call many of them my friends.

Thank you to every single person who has supported my career over the last 10 years. Every pattern, every book, every episode watched, every bottle of Wrapture sold -- it is YOU who have supported my little family and kept us going. To commemorate the first ten years, I have created two volumes of eBooks.

Volume 1 Knitting is a collection of the first 10 years of patterns from my PDF pattern line: 9 accessories, 21 shawls and 10 garments for only $7.99! That is less than a quarter per pattern!!

Volume 1 Crochet is a collection of the first 10 years of patterns from my PDF pattern line: 19 accesories, 12 shawls and 7 garments for only $7.99! That is less than a quarter per pattern!!

Here are two slideshows showing you all the patterns in each collection. Below is a link to more information on each instant download eBook pattern! Also, if you share this information on your social media accounts, you enter to win a prize package of yarn and books and tools, too! Thanks again for all you do for me!

Love always, Kristin

Two New Video Tutorials for Crochet Lace Shawl Patterns

I had the pleasure of designing top down crochet lace shawls this week, using yarn created by two wonderful friends of mine: Drew Emborsky and Carol Sulcoski!

The first shawl is Lilaberry Crochet Lace Shawl and it features Carol Sulcoski's Black Bunny Fibers Yarn, BFL sock, which is a handdyed superwash blue faced leicester wool yarn. The shawl uses only one skein of the sock yarn which comes in at a whopping 650 yards per skein! I only had two ends to weave in, as the beautiful edging I created exclusively for this shawl is crocheted seamlessly right onto the last row of the top down, triangular shawl.

The second shawl is Lava Lamp Crochet Lace Shawl and it features Drew Emborsky's Inappropriate Yarn, which is a hand dyed sock weight superwash merino. The shawl is top down construction in a beautiful 3-petal floral lace pattern and I created an edging exclusively for this shawl that is a larger scale version of the same flowers. I am so excited about this edging. It is absolutely gorgeous.
