2017 LA County Yarn Crawl & Trunk Show

It's that time of year! The LA County Yarn Crawl starts today, Thursday April 6 and as part of the crawl I'm having a trunk show at The Little Knittery featuring my designs from the Interweave book "Highland Knits, Knitwear Inspired by the Outlander Series". The trunk show is from 4-7pm with a raffle being held at 7pm for a copy of "Highland Knits" and a skein of Cascade Magnum (there's a surprise raffle too!) If you're in the area, come on by!

The Women's March on Washington


My daughters think that soon to be President No. 45 hates girls. I was at a loss to find something that would show them regardless of how powerless they feel with things beyond their control they can still contribute to a cause that makes them feel they are being heard. 

Inspired by the efforts of Kat Coyle at The Little Knittery (who wrote the original Pussyhat pattern) and nudged by Instagram friend @obliviousknits it makes me happy, for many reasons to contribute a pattern to the Pussyhat Project in Tunisian Crochet; though mainly because it shows my daughters that even the small act of making a hat has a larger impact when combined with others who have the same concerns yet feel powerless as well. 

Find the pattern for the TC Pussyhat here.
