Why There was no Update Last Week
Last week Lacie and I celebrated our 2nd wedding anniversary. We were able to spend a couple of days hanging out in Denver eating some awesome food and exploring the Mile High City. I tried a rattlesnake and pheasant hot dog and we visited the Yves Saint Laurent Retrospective at the Denver Art Museum.
Here’s a short video from our wedding day:
Just a quick note, Next week’s update might be late too since we’ll be moving back to California on Sunday.
Welcome to Our New Email Subscribers
We had a lot people join while we were away. 345 people came on board New Stitch a Day! Great job to all of you who are telling your friends about the site on Twitter, Facebook, Ravelry, Knitting Paradise, and at your local yarn stores. Keep up the good work!
Unfortunately there were just too many people to list over the past couple of weeks, but I promise we’ll keep recognizing our new members in the future.
Show and Tell!
I got a lot of photos from people of their projects so let me share them with you.
Subscriber of the Week
This week’s subscriber of the week is Jordan C.
She’s only been knitting for a little over a year but made this amazing Humpty Dumpty for her son. And it’s knit with embroidery thread!! I was very impressed.

The Past Couple of Week’s Stitches
How to Knit the Sweeping Cable Stitch
Love this HUGE cable stitch. Super easy but has a big impact.
How to Knit the Granite Stitch
Want to increase and decrease without changing the shape of your fabric. This is the stitch for you.
How to Knit the Perforated Lace Stitch
This is a very basic lace pattern, but quite pretty.
How to Knit the Simple Garter Lace Stitch
I love the look of the lace rib pattern.
I Need Your Help!
I’m considering hosting LIVE online classes on topics like colorwork, lace, cables, crochet blankets and amigurumi.
I’m not sure if this is a good idea so I need your help to decide.
If there’s enough interest we will start opening classes next month. But if not enough people respond then we’ll shelve the idea for another time.
Your Turn: 1. Do you like this idea? Meaning would you pay to have me help you improve your knitting skills in a live class?
2. What do you want to learn most?
