I love to encourage knitters to try a swatch or two before embarking on a project. In today's blog, I use the Paradoxical Mittens pattern as an example. A little bonus: the pattern is on sale for half-price this week only!
Lucy added two new videos to the Double Knitting Technique Club this week!
In Videos 25.1 and 25.2, she demonstrates a controlled method of knitting with two strands of yarn held together to create a single knit fabric. Upon mastery of that technique, you will learn a unique way of adding small double-knit caches, or pockets, to your project.
The Canadian dollar has gone down; it is at its lowest value in 5 years versus the US dollar. Since our prices are in Canadian dollars, this means almost 20% savings on every product for all our US knitters. Warm up your winter with a new project!
For some high-tech fun, check out the latest addition to the Notebook tabs: QR Codes. Generate a knitting pattern for a QR Code that can be read by a smartphone. Deliver a link or a personal message. (Be warned, the longer the message, the more complex the chart.) How about "I love you" on a scarf? Or "I am a geek!" on an iPad case?
The Blossom PIP Club is still going! Knit along with Lucy as she completes this lovely centre-out DK design: create your own Blossom hotpad, chair pad or beautiful blooming blanket!

"Lucy's designs are so tempting -- knit, learn, have fun, knit some more, learn some more,
admire the design, learn, knit, admire the colours you've chosen ...
until you have something amazing that's a Lucy-and-you creation."
