On Naming Knitting Patterns

It’s not easy, coming up with creative, catchy and memorable names for 12-14 patterns a year. There’s always a moment in the design process (usually when I’ve reached the ‘miles of stockinette’ or ‘make second sleeve’ section) when I look down at the project in my hands and think “What am I going to call this?”

KAL: Galorealong

Announcing my first-ever KAL - knit-along, that is. I'm finally over my grief, thanks to finding five beautiful skeins of Tanis Fiber Arts Purewash DK in stunning shades of blue, teal and violet, and I'm ready to face down recreating my lost Galore sweater. And I'm hoping you'll want to knit along with me!
