I've been a die-hard crocheter for almost 16 years now, but I've recently become fixated on the idea of learning to knit, mostly because I have a huge pile of yarn I want to make a jumper out of. I should probably start with something smaller though.

I am going to highly recommend you give a try to Tin Can Knits Simple Collection! It was specially created for people that were just starting to knit! Be sure to practice your cast on and knit and purls before you start a pattern, make a gauge swatch basically just so you can get the swing of it!

Here is the link to the Simple Collection


Tin Can Knits 12 Days of Christmas 2015
The Tin Can Knits 12 days of Christmas is underway... Enjoy a free pattern every 24 hours till Christmas!

ALERT! HOW DID I NOT KNOW ABOUT THIS UNTIL NOW!?!?!?!? My favorite knitwear designers Tin Can Knits will be gifting a free pattern everyday until Christmas!! WOOHOO!

I’m devastated that I missed out on getting a free copy of the Sea Wall socks yesterday! UGH I’ve been looking for the perfect cable sock pattern.

But there are still many free amazing knits to come! Make sure you get your free Ravelry downloads with these directions.

Merry Knitmas!


Whoops, it’s been a while since I last blogged. I have no excuse other than being terribly lazy.

Here’s my new favorite summer cardigan. I’m completely in love with how this turned out!

Circular yokes look lovely but often have some fit issues (unless short rows are used). But this pattern fits just perfectly and no short rows are needed. The pattern is a bit pricey – $7 for a cardigan that’s mostly stockinette – but totally worth it. Highly recommended!

WIP Wednesday: It's Easy Being Green

Look, I’ve cast on a new cardigan!

It’s Lush by tincanknits, knit in perfect-for-summer DROPS Cotton Merino. I’m in love with this project – it’s all I want to work on despite the numerous projects on my needles.
