Hello, my fellow knitventurers!

Thank you so much for your support and encouragement, it received more likes, queues, and purchases than I thought it would being my first paid pattern.

The Terra Firma Scarf pattern is just about wrapped up and is being sent off to tech editing on Monday. This means that there will be a new test knit opportunity opening up later next week. If you’re interested in applying to be a test knitter for me and receive test knitting opportunities by email, sign up for test knitting by clicking on the button below.

Conquer Cables Knitventure Quest

Do you think cables are beautiful but have been afraid to take the leap into trying them? Maybe you found this beautiful cabled cowl pattern, but you don’t want to learn to cable on the cowl itself.

I’ve been planning the Knitventure Society’s first Knitventure Quest: Conquer Cables. During this knitalong, I’ll guide you through the techniques via video and Live Stream to make the Plaited Gift Card Cozy pattern. This pattern only takes an hour or two to make, and so I’m dividing up the pattern into five days. Each day of the quest, I’ll be sharing some insights about cables to help demystify them and uncover the secrets of how simple they really are to construct (and fix!). There will be two sets of videos – one for traditional knitters, and one for mirror knitters, so everyone can play!

Conquer Cables is in the planning (and video recording) process, and I’m aiming to open it up later this month for kickoff in early December. It’s the perfect time to take on a little project to help break up the monotony of holiday knitting, and you’ll end up with some pretty packaging for a gift card you might give out for the holidays.

Keep an eye out for more information coming soon. If you want to be the first to know when the Knitventure Quest is happening, consider signing up for the Knitventure Society. You can sign up by clicking the button below to learn more.
