Giving Thanks and a Little Pattern Sale


I'm very thankful for many things. As we celebrated Thanksgiving in the US today, I was reminded of a few of those things for which I'm grateful:

The piles of dishes in the sink (which remind me of the bounty of food we have enjoyed). 

The mountain of laundry waiting to be washed, put off while I prepared for Thanksgiving (because it reminds me that we have ample clothing to provide for our needs).

The boisterous, occasionally annoying, wonderful relatives at large holiday gatherings (because it reminds me I have people in my life who care about me enough to spend time with me).

This year's cancer surgeries & chemotherapy treatments (because it reminds me that every day is a precious gift from God and we should love each other, forgive each other and live the day to the fullest). 

The alarmingly large pile of knitted and crocheted FO's awaiting blocking, like the fingerless mitts in the photo above (because it reminds me I have yarn and the physical capability to do something I love).  

I'm also very thankful for my friends, including the friends I've met through Ravelry and this blog! 

So, to celebrate Thanksgiving this year, I decided it might be nice to offer a discount on my Ravelry patterns. Starting today, and running through Sunday, November 30th, all individual patterns in my Ravelry store will automatically show a 20% savings off of the total in the shopping cart. No coupon code is necessary to receive the savings.

Thank you to everyone for stopping by my studio today, whether this is your first visit or you are a long-time friend, I am so happy you are here and I wish you happy stitching! 


  1. What a lovely thankful perspective you have Robin. I too am especially thankful for friends near and far that I have met in this amazing fiber community. Thank you for being such a beautiful person and inspiration.

  2. It is hard sometimes to remember what to be thankful of, & we need to slow down to realise it! I'm just thankful all I have to do is loads of washing that were affected by a huge sudden hail storm & not have to deal with any car/house damages or people injuries from it! Have a great weekend! And you know what I've just realised I have all your patterns, so might just gift one to someone who I appreciate! Thanks for the discount!
