Making Things: a new way to…make things!

The Making Things app is finally here! It’s a whole new way to knit and crochet.

For $11.99 US per month you get unlimited access to all of the patterns from 150 (and counting) designers. You also get innovative tools that help you work with the patterns – row counters built right in the patterns, notes, highlighters, live support, tutorial videos, and more. And it’s only getting started.

I’m really excited to be one of the designers they chose to partner with to launch this new service. When you click through to the link above you’ll notice that there are a good selection of my designs, including the incredibly adorable gnomes, and more are coming. They are working around the clock adding new patterns to the library, formatting them to work with the app so that you can track things on computers, phones, and tablets as easily as possible.

  • My India trip is booked! Looks like I’ll be spending a few days in Munich on my way there – still debating heading to the Wollmeise store since I’ll be 45 minutes away by train, but am not sure that my pocketbook would appreciate that (plus it would eat into actually seeing Munich.)
