This week we’re talking about the Siren Seafoam, which will always have a special place in my heart because it’s the first garment I ever designed. I was so eager for the beach (not much has changed) and I wanted to knit something for it!   One of my goals this year is to update all of my older patterns in more sizes. I started off withe an update of the Rockaway Cardigan, but for this one I wanted to do… Read more »

One thing that every pattern has is a yarn recommendation under supplies. And every single knitter at one time or another has looked at that yarn recommendation and said, “Nope, I’m using another brand.” But which brand to use if you want the same outcome as the designer? There aren’t hard and fast rules, but I made a few guidelines for you. Have the pattern handy because you’re going to most of your information from the pattern supplies. Weight. Typically,… Read more »

As I mentioned in my video last week, I’ve had a few comments about the Demoiselle along the lines of, “Oh, I love it, but I’m just not sure how to style it…” Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered! I came up with a couple of different fashion boards with ideas on how to style it. Whether your style is fancy or super casual, I have a few ideas for you. This is the first time I’ve done this, and I… Read more »

When I think back to January, I had huge and high hopes for 2017. I don’t exactly make resolutions, but I picked the word “expand” for the year. I figured I would just keep on working towards the goals I made the year before and grow everything along the way. Simple enough, right? When I started We All Knit Here over 3 years ago, my intention was to create a community around knitting. Having taught myself to knit, I knew there… Read more »

June’s issue of I Like Knitting is extra special for me because I have 2 patterns published in it! If you missed the Summer Sweetheart Sweater, check it out here.
