knitting on leather

Hey, folks! I’ve been writing a few posts for the Craftsy Knitting blog. Six have been posted already, including a tutorial for knitting on leather. I have covered crochet on leather here on this blog, but the Craftsy post shows another method for those not so inclined to use a crochet hook.

I also wrote about the short row heel. It’s a post for those who aren’t quite sure how to knit it up. It can be added to pretty much any sock pattern!


You can see my other super amazing posts on Craftsy HERE! I love writing tutorials and posts for beginners. It’s my life’s mission to spread the love of yarn.

Knitting: mason jar cozy

This little jar has been getting a lot of use lately. I thought I would spruce it up a bit by knitting a little cozy. You can make this in under an hour, I’d imagine. It’s the perfect beginning knitter’s project! A giant swatch. No button holes and you don’t even have to add the duplicate stitch design, but why wouldn’t you? It’s cute as heck.

Download the free pattern from the Craftsy pattern page, here: Knit Mason Jar Cozy.

If you aren’t familiar with the duplicate stitch, check out this tutorial I wrote up for the Craftsy knitting blog– [HERE]






A word of caution: glass jars are pretty slippery. I made the cozy as snug as I could without distorting my stitches. I also made sure my fingers could still touch my glass when the cozy was in use. It just makes me feel more confident that the jar won’t slip out while I’m carrying it. I don’t think they’re too practical for children!
