Free Lace Patterns, and a Single Skein Club update

Knitting Daily (Interweave Knits) is giving away 7 free lace patterns. It’s a free download, but you have to register on their site. I particularly like the Tailored Scallops Cardigan by Pam Allen. It’s from the book Lace Style, published by Interweave. I haven’t chosen my next big sweater project yet, but this is in the running.

Go get your download!

In other news: It’s April, and that means that the second installment of Twisted’s Single Skein Club is ready for pick up! DH bought my membership for me for Christmas; it’s nice to have a surprise every other month, all year long.


If you’re a member, and haven’t picked up your package yet, don’t look any further. You’ll want to be surprised by this lovely project.


Here’s the package:

A very interesting sock pattern from Chrissy Gardiner, some Louet Gems sport weight merino yarn (my favorite yarn weight for socks, hooray), and the coolest pen, ever. (This is all part of the universe’s plan to get me to knit toe-up socks…)

What makes this pen the coolest pen ever?


It has a tape measure in the top. Put *that* in your knitting bag!

The yarn is sage green, with a nice twist. (Green in the first two pictures are more accurate than the one below.) I’ve used this yarn before, and it is great to work with.


Looks like spring!

  4. What a wonderful project club! I wish I could join something like that >_< I have to really butter-up my boyfriend so hopefully he’ll want to get it for me for Christmas next year…I have to think of some way to convince him it is a necessity…haha.

  8. What a cool pattern! Gotta love Twisted!

  9. Thank you for the tip on the free lace patterns! I already downloaded it.

  10. Neat little pen! What happens when the ink runs out, is the pen refillable?

    Cute ankle socks. Wonder how much yarn it takes to knit ankle socks. Would 50 gms be enough? Hmm, prolly not. Perhaps a 100 gm ball, with enough leftover for fingerless mitts then.
