50% Off My Aran Skull KnitCrate Through September 30!

This month's KnitCrate features my new Aran Skull Hat pattern and two skeins of a beautiful Suri/Huacaya alpaca blend, just in time for Halloween knitting! I wanted to let you know that there is a great deal for 50% off until the end of the month -- that's just $14.99 plus shipping (and international shipping is available). Simply go to this link (it tells them that I sent you there!) and add the $29.99 crate to your cart. That will activate the deal: I have been playing around with cabled skull motifs ever since I saw a ready-to-wear skull sweater by Alexander McQueen. My husband wanted it so badly and the price tag was so ridiculous that I decided to make him one as a birthday gift. Though other knitters have charted this out, I decided to challenge myself to make this entire pullover just by looking at several photographs. Wow, that was an interesting experiment! I'm still convinced there are things done in the sweater that seem impossible by hand, but I did ok. :D Ch
