Three Kinds of Addiction!


The first three of the "Addicted Two Ewe" series are now available for purchase on Ravelry!


All three patterns qualify for 15% off with coupon code LOYAL15 until August 31st!

What makes these patterns GREAT?
  • Each pattern uses only basic stitches: cast on, knit, knit two together, yarn over, slip stitch, bind off. 
  • The patterns are written to use two skeins of fingering weight yarn held together, helping you bust your stash, while creating exciting colors and textures.
  • Each of the scarf designs are flexible enough to "use it till it's gone" so that you don't have a lot of excess yarn.

Knit Up and Dye Episode 41 - Define "Vacation"



So, I'm the kind of person who stuffs my "vacation" full of work, as you will see here.
