About Me:
I help spread the word about all of Knit Picks newest products and promotions as a member of the marketing department.

I like projects that are cheery, a little quirky, and quick and easy to make. Legwarmers, fingerless mittens, hats, and pretty colors are right up my alley. I do not like size 0 needles

"Yarn Bombing"- what do you think?

Posted on March 19, 2010 at 12:30pm 22 Comments

We got an interesting call this week from a representative of a local park in Cape May, NJ.

Since late February, a team of mystery knitters has been "attacking" the park by attaching swatches of knitted fabric to trees and lamp posts. You may have seen the story on Facebook, Twitter, or Ravelry, CBS picked up the story so it got a lot of media attention. Most of the town's residents like the guerrilla knitters and don't mind the addition the park's…

If you want to snatch up a skein or two of our brand new Simply Cotton Heathers, but you're not sure what you'd knit with them, may I suggest a cute and cuddly Cheezombie toy...or three?

I choose Afterthought Thumbs!

Don't Kelley's mitten videos make you feel a little like you're in a choose your own adventure novel? They're so much fun! Some of you have already seen this video on YouTube, but for everyone else...


A few weeks back, Kelley was developing her outlines for the video series, and since I was knitting a pair of fingerless mittens for my sister, I asked her for a private lesson on Afterthought Thumbs. Her way of using the waste yarn to knit…

Now that the holidays are over and my sisters' birthday has passed (they're twins), I can finally blog about what I've been knitting since last summer!



When I cast on, I had no clue that my mom's socks would take longer to knit than my dad's Harry Potter scarf. That was my first project on size 0 needles (and probably my last!). Mom saw the yoga socks in a magazine and wanted a pair to wear with her flip flops now that she's moved from sunny Florida to North Carolina. Like a good… Continue

Christmas is right around the corner!

Can you believe that Christmas is only 10 days away? And Chanukah is already here!!

I'm 90% done with my holiday knitting, I have a few more ends to weave in, and two edges to reinforce with crochet, and then I am DONE! I think I'm going to make it, but if I don't, at least I have these cute downloadable IOU's as a back up. It's nice to have a contingency… Continue

Angela,
I'd talked to you so much online, I thought you were already on my KP friends list. Glad to have you along. --Susan

Angela,
Love the Pickle! I downloaded the pattern and was shocked. Do you have engineers designiing your patterns? Dear... this cold be done so, so much easier. I'll send you a pattern is a week or so, if my schedule allows... and I'll show you how easy a pickle can be. susan

I love the idea of charity knitting.
I have also given to charity. lately I have been trying to load up on baby gifts for my daughters freinds.
How do we join your charity group?

Angela, I also wanted to mention that one of the other highlighted homework projects was a pair of socks knit in Felici Meridian using Grumperina's Jaywalker pattern. The knitter thought they looked like Ravenclaw colors so she knitted an eagle right into the heel. You have to go to Ravelry to check it out, look in the group HPKCHC (Harry Potter Knit Crochet House Cup), the thread called May Prizes. They are very clever!

I've seen a number of socks knit in Felici using that pattern, all very attractive. I got a couple skeins of Essential Multi Jester just because I liked the purple and green together. After a search for the right pattern, I had also decided on Jaywalker. In the Multi, it is very different from the striped effect but I'm still happy with them...if I ever get my Harry Potter homework done, I'll get back to them!

Thanks, Angela--being the newbie is difficult when knitting has changed so much in the last 30 years!! I'm amazed to think that EZ was producing patterns while I was knitting my handspun --must have used some of them way back when!!

Angela, Sorry if I made you feel left out, but everyone who responded was pretty favorable, then I asked the lady I'm doing it for and she told me she didn't need anything that "hard" to knit. Since she is a non-knitter, I had to explain how much more productive you are when doing something interesting than something too boring (like plain garter stitch). She agreed and I started knitting. I need to start another one for my best girl friend from work (I've known her for over 30 years), and she deserves something special. I will be using Red WotA for that one.

Ok, Angela--I searched the site for Hemi facts,but can not find the size of needle nor the size of yarn--is it 900 yd. of lace weight, fingering weight, sport weight?? It does look like a doable first lace pattern?? Thanks for the info--the blog site is very entertaining!!
