Stitches TexasStitches Texas is coming up at the Dallas Convention Center in Irving, Texas September 14-17, and I’ve taken over the Stitches Events Instagram for a few days! Here are some more details about what I shared:

Crochet ConfidenceAt Stitches Texas, students will leave my Crochet Confidence class with their crochet questions answered, techniques mastered, and “what if’s” explored. In other words, we will be creating a lot of new Crochet Bosses!

Edie Eckman designsCheck out some of my self-published designs—both knitting and crochet. Clockwise, from top left:

a) Folly Scarf, a zig-zaggy knit featuring a unique closure and which can be worn a bunch of different ways;

b) Cascade of Color Scarf, a crocheted riot of color from a single skein of yarn, with both text and charted instructions;

c) Modern Granny Scarf, a new take on a classic, using long color-changing yarn;

d) No Gauge Custom Knit Gloves, gloves that really fit in a variety of yarn weights—no gauge swatch required!


Solve your too-tight foundation chain problem by leaving out that pesky chain altogether. Find out how in Foundation Crochet Stitches at Stitches Texas on September 15.
My cute knitted Halloween Neckwarmer in Sueño Worsted from Skacel HiKoo features Jack-O-Lantern, Ghost and Skull Motifs. Start knitting now, and you’ll have it ready in plenty of time for October festivities.
Stitch Dictionaries are my favorite type of knitting book, and we’ll explore LOTS of them in Treasuring Stitch Dictionaries at Stitches Texas. We’ll look at lace, cables, textures and more. Bring your favorite stitch dictionary (or three) and join the fun! 

Melbourne Shawl close-upMy brand-new Melbourne Shawl pattern gets compliments wherever it goes. A five-sided open square creates the generous drape of this season-spanning wrap. The extra side means that it wraps securely and stays in place. How many different ways can you style it? Choose your favorite three colors of fingering weight yarn, or go for broke with a novel color combination as shown here. The sample was made with the yummy Haiku from Anzula Luxury Fibers.

And, of course, join us for knitting and crochet fun in Irving on September 14.
