Last week we announced the launch of my new yarn, Sheep(ish), on BuyCaron.com, and this week I'm happy to be able to offer you an amigurmi pattern for Mr.Fluffs the kitty, the crochet version of the Craftsy mascot logo. Craftsy is an upcoming web venue for all that is crafty, including education across the genre. As of today though, you can take part in my Crochet Lab video workshop on their sister-site. Whether you want to learn the basic stitches, learn how to make a granny square, or just see supplies like Sheep(ish) yarn and Tulip hooks in action--my workshop is there for you! Check out the Crochet Lab trailer here, get crochet supplies here, and nab the kitty pattern here. Enjoy!
When our model slipped on this beautiful knit cardigan from Ann E. Smith, she looked so comfortable, we had to call it the Comfy Cardi. Knit in an all-over lace stitch pattern and edged with a wide garter stitch band, the Comfy Cardi features three-quarter length "bracelet" sleeves and a stylish two-button closure.

Every time we publish an adorable crocheted design, our knitters want to see a knit version. And, of course, when we publish a darling knit design, our crocheters, well, you get the idea. This week we are ready with a knitted companion to the Lullaby Granny Squares Baby Blanket (above), Marilyn Losee's knit Lullaby Baby Blanket. Knit in a classic eyelet ripple pattern, This precious piece is a keeper.
