I’m thrilled to introduce you all to Barnabas Notes!
How Does Your Garden Grow
Stashing down for the move to Maine, I came across this beautiful skein of 100% cobweb weight linen yarn from a discontinued yarn company. It has been in my stash for years! And over the years I’ve tried to make several different design concepts from it. But nothing really stuck.
Into the Unknown has been a year of unexpected blog customizations. The newest release, Bubbling Interplay, has some fun options to reveal too! At the bottom, a bubble of a different kind invites you outside to play. Same amount of yarn, more bubbles Little Bubble CablesIf you’d like even more bubbles on your Bubbling Interplay and follow the charts, print up these two snippets and paste them anywhere you want where there is 6 plain Garter in a row for 3 rows. (Thanks to Denise who asked for even more Bubbles… more of the ones sized in the pattern won’t fit, but these little gems will!) Written additions – mini bubbles cover 4 sts with 1 st on either side …
Take the Plunge Challenge
Summer is coming and it’s time to cast on for the “Take the Plunge” 2022 photo challenge.
With the release of my 40th birthday design, Depth Perception, in the Malabrigo’s Quickies program, Malabrigo interviewed me on their blog.
Crossing Borders Virtually
An exciting 10th anniversary celebration I wasn’t expecting was to be invited to interview with Antionette.
Please join me in welcoming Karista of Sweet Mountain Crafts to the blog today. I’ve followed Sweet Mountain Crafts on IG for a while and love the gorgeous yarn and beautiful scenery.
What do you do when you can’t decide whether you like the right side or the wrong side of your cowl better? Transform the pattern from a right side/ wrong side design to a fully reversible one!
Interview and Review
A quick blog this week for International Dog Day and news on “Take the Plunge.”
Meanwhile in Maine…
A site photo from the ground clearing company was sent to me this week and I was so excited to see where my future first nest is going! It made me reflect upon the joy of the process and not just the end result so I decided to try something a little different with my next design. Puddles and I invite you to join along in the process of designing a sweater worthy of Maine’s forecasted winters!
