Starting New

Here we are at a new location to start a new blog. I’m involved in a couple of design groups and would like to talk about all of them and let you in on new designs and techniques. I’ll still be talking about designs for Cabin Fever. More top down ideas are in the works.

I’m also part of the trio that makes up Knitacation. A new design team with Elizabeth Fallone (designer and owner of Eliza’s Buttons and Yarns in Barrie, ON), Annika Peloski (dyer & graphic designer, Dragon Strings) and me (designer and co-owner of Cabin Fever).

My new passion is working on Gauge Free designs. No swatching, no checking gauge. You can knit to fit without knowing how many stitches per inch you are getting. Great for stash busting and charity knitting. You can now use those odd balls of mystery yarn you’ve been given or end up in the bottom of your stash. These will be recipe patterns, a plan as opposed to a pattern with specific stitch counts. They will be easy to work and have lots of instructions.

I'm a Knitter. The capital K means every day, everywhere. I'm co-owner of Cabin Fever with my sister Lyn. We have published over 100 patterns and 11 books. I'm also working on a new set of patterns for Gauge Free knitting. This blog is all about modifications you can use to knit garments the correct size and fit.
