Learn Brioche Knitting!

Craftsy Brioche Class

2 new sweaters and a sweet SALE.

It’s been a while since I’ve sent anything out, because things here have been INSANE.
My husband and I traveled to New Mexico in June (so amazing and gorgeous), and while we were gone, our apartment was robbed. Little did we know this was just the first incident in what we first dubbed “The Week of Doom,” which snowballed into “The Month of Doom,” and in reality was six solid weeks of stressful DOOM. More thefts, very sick pets (still reeling from vet bills), total chaos.

Things are thankfully much quieter now. *sigh of relief*

We’ve moved to a safer apartment in a lovely 1920s building in a cute Birmingham neighborhood. I’m writing you from my little screened-in porch with my dog, Leelu, at my feet. I’ve also moved my work stuff into a new studio space, so the apartment doesn’t look like a yarn shop blew up all over the furniture. Chris is very happy about this last part.

If you’d like to write to me, send cookies, postcards, whatever, I have a new mailing address. It’s a rented mailbox and they take all carriers’ shipments:

1116 20th St S #203
Birmingham, AL 35205

In the calm after the storm of June/July, I’ve been able to FINALLY finish up two sweater patterns that have been waiting in the wings. Both are sponsored by Blue Water Fibers, the US distributor for Erika Knight’s luscious classic British wool yarns.

Meet Highland Avenue and Cobb Lane!

Both of these sweaters, along with everything available in my Ravelry pattern store, are now 30% off, now through my birthday weekend, 9/21. Grab one (or three?) for yourself, gift a pattern to a friend, or perform a random act of kindness for a fellow Ravelry group member. No need for a coupon code, just shop to your heart’s delight and all items will be automatically discounted in your shopping cart. Easy peasy, rice and cheesy.

The Brioche Knitting Made Easy class on Craftsy is still going strong! If you still haven’t signed up, come on over and join us. I’m so proud of what my students are knitting up!

How has your summer been? What are you planning for autumn? Tell me all about it.

    I will be moving to Birmingham in the near future, as soon as our house sells, and I’m so happy to see you are located there. Do you teach classes in the Birmingham area?
