New Pattern, New Resources, New Interview

Hello Knitventurers!

I can’t believe it’s the end of December already. This year has flown by, and has been filled with such wonderful changes in my life and such a great start for daisy chain knits. My appreciation for you joining the Knitventure Society tribe is large and wide – thank you for being a part of the spirit of knitventure.

If you are wrapping up your holiday gift knitting, I wish you the best knitting speed and accuracy!

Here’s a little recap since we lasted ‘talked’. 🙂


Conquer Cables Knitventure Quest Recap

Thank you to all of the brave knitventurers who participated in the year-end Conquer Cables Knitventure Quest. We had some fun demystifying cables and putting our newfound skills into action by creating a gift card cozy.

Congratulations to all who earned their Conquer Cables Knitventure Badge and also to our winners, Debra, Kelli, and Christy. All 8 participants who finished received a copy of the Terra Firma Scarf pattern as a thank you for their participation.


Terra Firma Scarf Pattern

Speaking of the Terra Firma Scarf pattern, I released it this past Monday. 🙂 You can find it here on Ravelry. I can’t thank you enough if you’ve already favorited the pattern, purchased it, or added it to your queue. It’s a design that I love, and I’m happy to see so many others love it too!


Knitventure Survival Guide Video Resources

I’m adding a new resource for you both for patterns and your general knitting adventures – video tutorials! I started this with the Terra Firma Scarf pattern, and will be updating old patterns to include this as well. There is a new “i” icon in the pattern that you can click on in the digital version to be taken to videos which will show you how to accomplish the technique or section of the pattern.

You can check out the Terra Firma Scarf’s pattern page here to check out the video resources I’ve created and will be creating for patterns and general knitting adventures for you in the future.


An Interview on The Needle Bee

Ever wonder why I started designing? Where the name daisy chain knits came from? Here’s a hint – it goes back a ways!

Why I’m doing what I’m doing? Brenda from the Needle Bee graciously offered a spot in her designer highlight blog series. I’d love it if you went and checked out the wonderful feature on daisy chain knits if you want to learn more about who I am, why I’m doing what I’m doing – and of course, what’s in it for you! 🙂

Happy Holidays!

Whether you celebrate the holidays with immense cheer, or whether you don’t celebrate them at all – I wish you all the best weekend, filled with cheer, lightheartedness, laughter, love, and people you cherish. (And here’s a peek at my next-in-line design – the Terra Firma hat!)


Knitventure On, and I’ll talk to you soon!
