A New Blog, A Free Pattern and a Cyber Monday Sale!

I’m so excited!  Today is the first day I get to not only reveal my new website to you all, but also, I get to offer you, my readers, a free, new pattern!  If you like free stuff as well as discount codes be sure to sign up for my mailing list!

I’ve never run a full website before, so I’m hoping that it doesn’t prove to be too intimidating.  My hope is, to be able to give you inside scoops on designs that I’m working on, to be able to introduce you to new techniques, new friends and some of the wonderful yarnies and yarn companies that I’ve been blessed to work with!

Be sure to browse through the links above, particularly the Forum link.

My friend Alicia and I run an online group called Plum Dandi where we talk about upcoming releases and where we offer test knit opportunities as well as fun giveaways!  You won’t want to miss out on the things we have in store for the upcoming months!

Today, Dec 2, 2013 we are running a Cyber Monday Sale in our Ravelry stores.  All of our patterns are 50% off today only by entering the coupon code:  cybermon at checkout.

What?  Did I mention a free pattern?  Well I certainly did!

Let me introduce you to Fezziwig.  Fezziwig File For Download

Fezziwig is a big, cozy sweater knit that whips up in a jiffy due to the fact that is knit with bulky yarn on large needles.   There is cable detailing and deep pockets for stuffing chilly hands into (or keys, or maybe even a cookie if you’re like me!)

I wrote this pattern up last year, had it edited and test knit, but found that I wasn’t happy with some of the larger size ranges, so I sat and sat and sat on it….   I’ve been so busy lately and while I plan to at some point make it available once more in larger sizes, I’ve decided to offer it for free at the moment, in an abbreviated range of sizes from XS to M.

But WAIT!  THERE’S MORE!   Remember my friend Alicia that I told you about?  Well, you’re going to want to hop over to her website as well because she is also offering a new free pattern!   http://aliciaplum.com/
