February, the shortest month of the year, certainly seemed to fly by quickly this month. For me it was a month of new beginnings, specifically I started a new job. You can hear all about it - and what I do for a living - on my Knit Tea Live! . Fair warning, moving into March I am still committed to updating Fiber Happenings on Friday, BUT, having a new ball to juggle I may be late on occasion. Thank you for understanding. For now, let's look back at the amazing work indy designers brought us!
February Pattern of the Month: The Snuggery Hat
Lauren Rad of A Bee in the Bonnet is one of my favorite designers. I featured her work in a designer spotlight during the February 14 Knit Tea Live! . What I love about Lauren's work - aside from he photos that I want to daydream in- is the way she combines texture with lacy details. Her work strikes an elegant balance of cozy and light. I think her latest pattern: The Snuggery Hat perfectly illustrates what I am talking about. (Even the name feels light and comfy). Also, I've said it before and I will say it a million times more. Follow Lauren on instagram. Not only are her knits beautiful, so are her blooms!
Of course, there were more patterns in February. Read More to see all the pretty things made of pretty string.
I love knitting in the round, and this book taught me a lot! I refer to it often and where I first learned about helix knitting!

One of my New Year's resolution is a monthly post of the new patterns released from the past month and appeared on Fiber Happenings. There are so many beautiful, original designs that come out each year that it's hard sometimes to keep up with it all. So, make sure to check back at the beginning of each month to see what patterns you may have missed OR to take a look at the pretty things again.
Liz Corke Knits: Nathair-Sgiathac
I discovered Liz Corke while creating The Fiber Indy List and she is now one of my favorite knit designers. Her work just speaks to me, even if I can't always pronounce the Gaelic names. (I'm the problem, not the Gaelic) This pattern blew me away when I saw it. It features two stranded color work patterns: one side the tough hide of a dragon, the other side the soft belly.
