UPcycled Tshirt Yarn patterns are LIVE on Ravelry

Finally uploaded the patterns to my Ravelry shop!

I have now formatted and uploaded all four of the new Tshirt yarn patterns to Ravelry. They range in price from $2 to $3. CHEAP. My contribution to encourage people to recycle or, even better, UPcycle!

In case you missed it, you can watch my “how to make Tshirt Yarn video” here. And, if you are really inspired, you can sign up for the next offering of the class.

PS: I’m designing a kids’ Tshirt yarn pattern for the winter issue of Petite Purls.

Feisty! A child's Aran sweater in two versions (PATTERN'S READY!)

This one is named after my feisty little one! Mazie is 21 and a half months old, and well into her “feisty twos.” They’re really not terrible at this age, just opinionated, all grown up, and really full of energy!

The last few days have been great! I’ve gotten so much checked off my To Do list, I can’t believe it!

One of the yarns I’ve been working with this week is Classic Elite Sprout.

This 100% organic yarn is so soft and lofty. It’s going to make a lovely sweater for Mazie!

Maybe you can tell from the “winder” picture, we’re getting more and more moved in. As we finish painting one room, we can fill it up and shuffle things around and eventually, everything will be unpacked. At least that’s what I’ve been telling myself.

Here’s a sneak peek of a shawl that I just finished, to be released as a pattern in a new Stitch CoOp Shawls / Scarves booklet that we’re working on. Knit in Cascade 220 Superwash Paints.


I’m in a blue phase. Blue is so calming.
