We feel so very blessed to do what we love and share it with others. This year, for the very first time, we are hosting a Christmas sale to share the joy with our friends and readers. Our autographed books make lovely gifts and can be personalized for your recipient. All books ship free within the US.
We are delighted to announce our next book, Sherlock Knits!
Continuing in our tradition of literary knitting books, Sherlock Knits is a collection of garments, accessories, and home decor knitting patterns inspired by the world's most famous consulting detective.
Final details, including chart-making, photo-taking, art-creating, and layout are happening right now. We cannot wait to show you the details of this new title!
Also, Eric and Joanna will be at Rhinebeck on Saturday and would love to see you there! Give Joanna a shoutout on instagram (username joannajohnson) to connect with us! We have brand new bookmarks for you all!
We launched our fourth knitting storybook, Henry's Hat, this winter, and have been overwhelmed by the kindness of bloggers, podcasters and knitters who have been so kind as to review our work, give us a shout out, and share us with their readers, listeners and followers. We appreciate you all so very much! Without further ado, in a completely random order, here are some of our favorites! (click to watch, read and listen!)
Last year, the talented and intelligent editor of Piecework Magazine, Jeane Hutchins, asked me if I would consider designing a pair of buff mittens in a child's size for the annual Historical Knitting Issue of Piecework Magazine. How could I say no? I have written about Buff Knitting here on the blog in the past (see here!) and also for Jeane's Knitting traditions magazine, and jumped at the chance to reinvent this shaggy mitten for a sweet little pair of hands.
If you haven't yet received your copy of the current Piecework, I highly suggest picking up a copy. It is a lovely issue, perfect for deep winter knitting, including patterns for mittens, leg warmers, socks, and a winter coat for a child, to name a few. Accompanying articles about Shetland knitting, the Greek women of Pindos, and sister Matthia (an amazing cenenarian sock-knitting nun) will give a rich background of interest to the patterns themselves. I am honored to be a part of this issue!
On a related note, I am thrilled to be teaching another variation of the Buff Mitten, my Timber Mitten pattern, at the Loopy Ewe's upcoming Spring Fling! This is just the kind of winter knit we have needed in Colorado this week!
