    I’ve had so much fun with your sweater patterns! I can’t thank you enough for the directions and beautiful style. I’ve especially loved the creativity of the strange brew yokes, most of all I have had tremendous fun knitting for my granddaughter

    Thank you for sharing your collection of gorgeous sweaters with us! They are all so lovely. The green Love Note is my personal favorite. I made Love Note in an aqua DK this year, and I’ve received countless compliments on it. Next time, I’ll be brave enough to try it with fingering and mohair held together.

      I just finished the cartography hat from the Strange Brew book (one of my best Christmas presents). It was so much fun to knit using Malabrigo Rios. I can’t wait to start my next project from the book….but which one????

    Maybe it’s because a muted green is one of my favorite colors but Love Note looks like an absolute dream. Congrats! One of these days, I hope to be prolific enough to knit more than one sweater a year, LOL

    I wanted to have a collection of different coloured yarns before starting on a sweater (I’d like to do something like the almanac) but it’s going to take me forever. Are there any brands that sell mini skeins?

      I would go with something like Jamiesons or Brooklyn Tweed, or Lopi. They come in 50 gram skeins, which saves you a little bit because you don’t have to buy a whole 100g skein. Lots of dyers do minis, usually in sock weight BUT you can always double up sock weight to go with your worsted/aran, so that might make it all go faster!

    Great work, Alexa: they’re all lovely. I have my eyes peeled for “Love Note” yarn, and the Penny is very tempting. Happy knitting in 2020! 😊
