Gifting Zen


I’m participating in the Indie Designer Gift-A-Long on Ravelry starting Thursday 13 November.

You can see my designs that will be 25% off as part of the event on my designer page.

Some great gift knitting patterns there 🙂

Knitvent 2014 will be starting next week!

The Festive Mystery Knit Along returns!

Join in each week as we take the stress out of holiday knitting and cheer each other on with Knitvent 2014. Each week another pattern is revealed which is perfect for either a gift or your own selfish desires. The collection will feature 5 accessory patterns with each pattern offering a choice of at least two sizes or tips on how to modify them. It’s time to release that special skein from your stash to lavish on someone you love, even if that someone is you!

Still undecided? Join in the KnitVent 2014 chatter and fun with our Ravelry group, inspirational blog posts and a newlsetter packed full of discounts and goodies, thanks to the Curious Handmade seasonal challenge.
