SALE on Yarn and Books and FREE Shipping! 

Drew Emborsky is having a sale on Iconic Yarn this week. Each $16 skein is only $5!!! I love this hand dyed merino yarn. I featured Iconic Yarn in "Knitting Outside the Swatch"'s Tindra Herringbone Scarf:

The cabled tiles that make up this vibrant scarf are embellished with knitted Xs and Os,symbolizing hugs and kisses. While the scarf would be beautiful knit in one color, I wanted to emphasize the herringbone texture created from the unique configuration of the tiles by using two 
shades of yellow. You might assume that the motif pieces are knit separately and sewn together, especially because they are knit in two separate colors—not so! Each new tile begins by picking up and knitting into the previous tile and, on the interior edge, joining as you go on every other row.

You can order two skeins of this yarn ON SALE this week for only $5 each HERE! And in celebration of this incredible sale, you can also order a signed copy of "Knitting Outside the Swatch" for only $20 with FREE SHIPPING HERE: 


Think Spring!

Technically, spring has already begun. But we all know it starts slower in some places than others. If it's still snowing and cold in your area, why not jump start the process and get your spring-y knit and crochet projects started? Here are a few selections of light summery projects to inspire you! If you are interested in information on any of the patterns, just click the link attached to the photos.

Kristin's Newest Crochet Patterns: Lace Maxi Dresses!

I am very excited to announce my new latest designs are crochet lace maxi dresses and the patterns are now available!

The COSMO DRESSTINI: A Crochet Dress to Paint the Town Red
This gorgeous dress is crocheted seamlessly from the top down with beautifully graphic and figure flattering vertical striped lace. The increases are worked within the stitch pattern for a gorgeous sunburst effect on the lower skirt and v-back detailing. Due to the nature of top down construction, the beauty of this garment is that you can try it on as you go and make the hemline as short or as long as you like! The yardage shown is based on the ankle length dress shown in the photos.

You can purchase the pattern as an instant download either at Craftsy or Ravelry here:

The FANDANCER Crochet Maxi Dress Pattern
This simple, chic maxi dress is full of figure flattering details. The dual, front-thigh slits are overlapping for a more modest reveal; the relaxed waist begs for a chunky hip slung belt or cropped denim jacket, and the a-line fullness in the skirt flows beautifully when you walk. The exquisite lace pattern in the skirt is modified for a simpler pattern in the bodice but still reflects the stitches used.
