This November Puddles and I celebrate 10 years of publishing!!! God has been so faithful to provide many designs and such wonderful collaborations and community through the medium of knitting and the Internet. As we wrap up July, which turned into our celebration month, we have a few more treats to share, including a very special yarn discount.
Our newest release, Butterfly Silk, features optional colourwork with some beautiful colour transitions! But that necessitates the question, how to carry the yarn? I know there are tons of methods out there – from the “no carrying, I cut and weave in ALL those extra ends” camp to the super sly “hide it in my knitting” camp and everything in between.
Total indie coverage from neck to toes, this week saw the final two patterns in our collection released – Vacillate and Phoenix!

The next two releases in the Rise Up Collection both feature fabulous colorwork! “Shooting Star” by Marcela Chang Knits and “Garden Cowl” by Knit Equals Joy.
The Rise Up Collection, a 7 indie designer eBook, brings 4 stitch patterns together on a variety of handknits.
The tie that binds all of our 2021 releases is “Hems and Ends”. We’ll be exploring a variety of cast on and bind off methods as well as a few tricks and tips for what do to with yarn ends.
Wow, 2020 is almost hindsight! With the wild ride the world-wide pandemic is, I’m so thankful for the vivid colors of “gorgeous gradients” to awaken each release. As I prepare for the nephew invasion (which will see us here until the New Year), let’s recap what 2020 brought to your knitting needles.
