Small Shop Update

From So Many Vices, So Little Time:

“I’ve added a few things to my Etsy shop, most notably there is a sale on OOAK and prototype scarves going on. A little bit of handspun that I’ve been hoarding and a few tools and bits.

You can find KB Designs here: KB Designs And Knits
You can find a wider selection of my downloadable knitting patterns here: PSPRP Patterns
The full range is on Ravelry and Craftsy.
Enjoy your week 🙂

Aside

I’ve updated the free KeiB Designs pattern page and you can find those here:

https://pointeshoespunkrockandpurl.com/keib-designs/keib-designs-free-patterns/

This is still a work in progress, so please check back now and then.

ETA: Both pattern pages have been updated 🙂

This!

I think this may be one of the best new innovations for knitters ever.

Just like with crochet diagrams, the kind that you more often see in Japanese pattern books, it’s so easy to “read” the stitches. Browsing the website, you can get a much better feel for the way the finished fabric will look, much more so than with a grid-style diagram.

I love this and hope to try it out very soon.

Random Thought…

I would love… like, crazy, stupid love if the industry standard for knit and crochet patterns was to include the  “Negative Ease” measurement.

I’m actually more inclined to buy or make a pattern that includes it. Knowing the modelled size is great too. I think there’d be a lot more happy endings for some projects if Knitters knew that one piece of information before casting on.
