Erica Heusser  Adventures in knitting and knit design! Here's a link to my pattern shop:

Playing with colors on a rainy day 🐈

One more sample of the Featherlight Beanie! In my effort to knit a more saturated, higher-contrast version of the pattern, I’ve realized I also inadvertently made myself a great little hat for the Super Bowl! 😆 The yarn is @luxadornaknits’ Cashmere Sport Weight in the gorgeous Gypsy and Kitten colorways. I’ve never really been a sports fan, but I’m pretty excited for Philly! 🦅💚

Four years ago, my dear friend and then coworker, Katelyn (@knknits), inspired me to learn how to knit. Now, she and her husband Christopher continue to inspire me with their partnership in creating @fairmountbagco! They’ve put so much work and ingenuity into crafting the beautiful Rittenhouse Tote - which is tailored to knitters and fiber artists, but also totally generalizable to everyday use. 🤗

I feel so lucky to have the chance to test out a prototype of the bag. The waxed canvas exterior is beautiful and super sturdy. A magnetic closure at the top of the bag provides easy access to the interior. Inside, there’s a detachable sleeve to hold patterns, a variety of pockets for needles and notions, and a reinforced pocket for scissors. The bag has weight and structure to it, which speak to its quality and durability. I can’t wait to see how the bag wears over time - I’m a big fan of the weathered look of the waxed canvas.
Katelyn and Christopher have launched a Kickstarter campaign, where you can pledge to support their business and receive an Early Bird discount. See @fairmountbagco for more details! ✨

We had our first snow this past week (and second, and third!) - so I’m feeling pretty fortunate to be equipped with warm woolens! This pair of Songbird Mittens knit in #brooklyntweed Loft is my go-to on snowy, windy days ❄️ (Yarn from @loopyarn)

I’m loving @knittingsarahs’s Crystal Sky Hat pattern! 😍 This is my first completed Gift-a-Long item, knit in Tosh DK (Coal Seam). The pattern is written for sport weight yarn, so I adjusted my needle size a bit, and made a squishy, slouchy version of the hat. Thank you, Sarah, for the lovely pattern! 🙏🏼 #giftalong2017 #gal2017

Taking advantage of some quiet time to get started on my own Gift-a-Long knitting!
