Knit on with confidence and hope
through all crises.
I’ve activated my new website: atimetoknit.com. One of the many good things about publishing online is that a Website is endlessly expandable. Currently, the site only offers free patterns, premium patterns and my two books, but I have plans.
More Premium Patterns
I have a list of seventy three designs that are in varying stages of development. My main challenge in getting these ready to sell is doing the math. In order to offer sweater patterns in at least three sizes, I need to calculate.
The patterns that excite me the most are my Great Lakes Chill Chaser Collection. These patterns will be my focus for the rest of the year. The premium patterns are currently sold through Ravelry.com. Although it is a membership site, non-members can access the pattern store. These are also sold through participating yarn shops.
Classes, Workshops and Seminars
I’ve taught a number of classes and workshops over the years. This is an activity that brings me as much joy as knitting. A number of the seventy three patterns I mentioned were developed to enable knitters to hone skills. I plan to add a section to the Website that will describe each class I offer with photos of the class projects.
It has long been a dream of mine to offer simple videos that show how to execute various knitting techniques. I want the videos to be clear, concise and easy to replay.
Starting this month, I’ll compile a list of my favorite knitting links.
Those plans should keep me out of trouble for awhile. Of course, I’ll have to take knitting breaks. For some folks, comfort congers up a vision of favorite food or an easy chair. For me, I maintain my mental health with a set of knitting needles and a lovely ball of fiber. It also helps that I have no TV or cell phone.

Is your “Anslow’s Vest” pattern available for purchase anywhere? I’ve been looking for a tiny vest pattern and it looks perfect for me but it is no longer available on Revelry. Thank you.
I agree with Mary Jo Doig. Katherine, I first heard your name mentioned by Elizabeth Zimmerman on a DVD I own. I believe it is Knitting Workshop where she holds up your knitted shawl and says, Katherine Misegades. I would LOVE to take a class with you.
Thanks so much for your comment. We would have great fun in a knitting class. Wouldn’t we? If EZ mentioned a Misegades on a DVD, she was probably referring to my mama, Rachel Misegades. They were friends and corresponded for many years. I never met her but I do know her daughter, Meg Swansen.
Thank you, Mary Jo. It is so good to hear from you.

So glad to hear you have plans, Katherine! I’ll be watching with expectancy. Today’s quote brings a smile to my face and peace to my heart. Thank you!
