A new blog

To start this new series of blog I am having a contest :)

On July 16, I will ask 5 trivia questions. The first people to answer correctly will get prizes. More information comming soon. Each person can only win one prize. So five of you will be receiving prizes. The prizes are from my etsy store. First Prize is a surprise, but sets of stitch markers, and hand spun yarn are among the prizes. Feel free to take a look.

I would like to focus on a project in each blog. Our first project is the not so scrappy entrelac blanket. This has been an ongoing project. It is worked on a size U.S. 11 needle. 1/2 the yarn is
a solid colored yarn I used Karabella Super Yak. The other half is Saisons a L'Atelier yarn. The second yarn is a hand tied yarn. You can get the effect by hand knotting your stash yarns at 1 yard intervals.
This pattern will be available anytime after June 12. If you are familiar with entrelac, your base triangles are 90 stitches. I would love to see and share photos of your not so scrappy entrelacs. Or your variations of any entrelac. Feel free to post photos in the comments. :) If you follow my blog I will email you the pattern free.

Shop Talk

Not much going on this week. Any orders of three items or more will receive 25% off your entire purchase, or free shipping, (which ever is more) through June 15th. I will refund the difference back to you through pay pal within 24 hours.

I am updating color availability on my fast as my fingers can spin it.

  1. You make gorgeous stitch markers!

  2. Thank you so much. I hope we can have lots of fun! Feel free to post any ideas for directions the blog should take. What do you think of having a ravelry group, that way if we decide to do group projects etc.. You can share your photos? I don't see a way for that to happen here.

  3. Would anyone like to do this project as a knit along? It is a great way to put a dent in your stash!

  4. i love the colors you chose!

  5. i hope one of the changes with be the font colors if you continue with the black background. the current dark shades of blue and red are hard to read. if you continue with the colors, could you make the print larger (font size)...that might help. sorry to grunch but i have old eyes...and like to read!

  6. Hello! Found here through etsy, love your yarns and stitch markers, I'm considering of buying some :) -Terhi from Finland
