I am literally the worst blogger in the world

Okay, maybe not that bad... but pretty damn bad!

I hope you've been keeping your eyes out for me on other formats - like my instagram (look me up under "softsweater") or maybe even just by friending me on ravelry (I'm also under softsweater there)

If you haven't and you're only following my blog then I am sorry. I have been a horrible blog-friend and I haven't been keeping any of you up to date on my knitting world.

I hope you'll forgive me and that I can start to update you all again now!

Fall is nearing! I've published two patterns this month that reflect my INTENSE EXCITEMENT about this fact.

Take a look!

First off was Late August. Which is a beautiful lace blanket which can also be a shawl. It is done in two weights and there are two different modifications for each weight. So you can really just go to town with the options for this beautiful thing. I have knit many (four now!) and they're all lovely - no matter what weight of yarn you choose. Inspired by my mother's back yard (which happens to also be my great grandmother's back yard) this pattern was named Late August because that is when the blackberries start to come out!









Then, this morning I published The First Few Fallen Leaves! This pattern is a very adjustable geometric shawl pattern, it can be made as small or as large as you'd like. Knit a shawlette version out of lace weight for the early fall chills and move up to a beautiful huge aran weight version for when fall turns to a more sharp crispy winter. This pattern can move from season to season with you.









I've started charging money for most of my patterns! I still have some residual guilt about this fact. I like to be accessible to everyone - but it's been really helping me to put my designing to a new though. I'm providing even better quality, and putting more time (which is awesome for me!) into my designs.

As always, just let me know if you don't have access to a credit card, or if you just can't afford the patterns and I will likely gift them your way. I'd rather you knit these lovely things than not!!

Hope all you lovelies are doing well! I will try and keep you more updated with my knitting world. I miss blogging!

  1. Please do NOT feel guilty about charging for your patterns! The time it takes to work out a pattern and then test knit it, is well worth charging a few dollars.

  2. I agree! Do NOT feel guilty! Charging a few bucks for something you put down a lot of work in will only raise it's value. Knitting is a area where people who don't knit tend to undervalue all the work that goes in to the garments. Be proud, girl! And you make really great and beautiful patterns, so take my money! :) ( I'll just have to wait for pay day... )
