March 14th is Pi Day! 3.14 – get it? It is also Einsteins’ birthday just to make it better for math geeks! I love the mathematical aspects of knitting! I guess that is why designing and writing knitting patterns is such a passion of mine! I have actually designed three different hat patterns that are obviously based on geometry – though sadly not on pi (I’ll have to design something based on circles someday). So how about a flash sale? 30% off any of my three geometrical hat patterns: Fun With Triangles Hat, Baby Triangles Hat, and Garter Geometry Hat in my Ravelry Store only. Use coupon code: pi to get the discount. In consideration of other time zones this promotion will run from 3pm Monday, March 13, through noon on Wednesday March 15th, 2017 – times being Eastern US time zone.
What a fun way to celebrate Pi Day! Start a geometric knitting project! Of course baking an actual pie would be good too.
Winding Trail Headband is my newest design – released just in time for a windy March in Maine! Even with the snow and cold you can feel Spring in the air. All my adult children are active outdoor types, and headbands fit the bill for keeping their ears protected from the wind. My son, Joe, served as photographer for this design with his lovely Katie as his model. You can see more of his close-up photos on the pattern page, but I just love this photo of Katie playing in the snow with the dog and wanted to feature it here. It sums up how I imagined this headband being worn when I designed it. But I admit, I’ve been wearing mine around in the house! In the soft, cozy Malabrigo Merino Worsted it just feels so good!
You can find out more about this design HERE or on Ravelry.
My first pattern is up on Ravelry! A one page pattern called “Beginning Knitter Hat”. I am offering it as a free pattern through the Ravelry pattern store. It is a pattern I designed to teach a beginning knitter class here in Lubec last summer. To see the hat and link to the free pattern you can go to the “free patterns” page here on my website – under “Designs” on the menu.
