Classic Designs for the Modern Knitter

Knitbot 2011

Wow, I can't even believe we're wrapping up 2011.  But we are!This was a big year for me.  I remember back in January telling Alana, "I'm really going to try this year."  And try I did!

First, I hired a new technical editor, Tana Pageler, who went through all Knitbot patterns with a fine toothed comb and made them, well, better.  Neesha Hudson created some new illustrations for me, and with these in hand Mary Joy Gumayagay designed a beautiful new pattern template for Knitbot.





I created a mini design collection using The Fibre Company's Savannah. Spring Ribbed, Sycamore, Sunnyside

And after all this, some how, some way, Alana and I created Coastal Knits, which has been more successful than we ever dreamed!








What's on the horizon for 2012?  So far I can tell you that I have a collaborative project in the works with Quince & Co.   On a personal note, I am expecting my 2nd child in June. So 2012 is sure to be filled with lots of excitement.  Stay tuned, and thanks for your continued support!

As the year draws to a close, I'll be posting round ups of some of my favorite finished Knitbot projects from you knitters completed in 2011.  Watch for those over the next few weeks!

Also, a note to let you knitters know that effective January 1, 2012, Knitbot garment pattern PDF rates will be going up from $4.95 to $5.95 each.  All my patterns received an overhaul earlier this year, extensive technical editing and graphic design, but I hadn't yet adjusted my rates to reflect this work.  Feel free to take advantage of these last weeks of December to grab a pattern you've wanted at the old price!
