Knitting Recipes Sneak Peek

Our wonderful graphic designer, Anneliese, just gave me a flash drive full of photos from our last Knitting Recipes shoot, and I’m so excited to share them with you!

We had such a good time shooting at Mother Fool’s Coffeehouse on Madison’s eclectic East Side.

Can’t wait to share the patterns with you. Soon!

Keep cool,


Definitely Hers Hat Pattern

Newest Knitting Recipes: Hats and Cowls addition: the Definitely Hers Hat!

This fun-to-knit lace-and ribbing pattern is so stretchy, one size truly does fit all. Worked in a DK weight yarn (shown here in wonderful Sincere Sheep Equity Sport), this pattern is available right now exclusvely as part of the Knitting Recipes: Hats and Cowls e-book.

Sneak Peek: the Definitely Hers hat will have a companion soon: Most Likely His.

Have a wonderful evening; my day has been so full of Work Getting Done, I haven’t knitted one row yet! That’s about to change…
