Have you all seen the new Twist Collective?
http://marniemaclean.com/blog/2015/04/zaida.html
Regardless of what the calendar would have you believe, it's been Spring in Oregon since February, when the first daffodils started poking their heads out of the ground, but it wasn't truly Spring for me until the new Twist Collective went live about a week ago.

Yesterday, I released a new crochet pattern, Phosphene. This crochet shawl is worked as individual motifs that are joined as you go. Since it's worked in lace weight yarn, it's a great project for these hot summer months. And since it's made of a series of motifs, you can adapt it to almost any ...

Happy anniversary to me! Allow me to get sappy, again.
http://marniemaclean.com/blog/2014/06/ten-year-blog-anniversary.html
Today, my blog turns ten. I was twenty-nine years old when I started it, a relatively recent transplant to Los Angeles, and just learning to designs knitting patterns. My website was three at the time. If you want to take a trip in the way-back machine, you can even see the first version of my ...

The new Twist Collective is up. Have you seen it yet?
I blogged about it here:
http://marniemaclean.com/blog/2013/11/twist-collective-winter-2013-is-live.html
The new Twist Collective launched last night and there's a lot to love. Check it out here. Everything in the edition is probably brand new to you, but I've been looking at these designs for months, and I know it's a strong edition when I'm still really excited about so many of them.

fall13_TwistCollective-1.jpg. Twist has been around for 5 years with 17 editions and I've just published my 19th pattern with them (20th, if you count the fact that Doppler is offered in both a men's and women's version). In some ways, I feel like I've been working for Twist for a much longer ...

Guess who redesigned her site? 
http://marniemaclean.com/blog/2013/05/the-new-digs.html

If you are a knitter, I'm offering 20% off all my ravelry patterns to celebrate. If you aren't a knitter, I posted some pictures of our humble little garden and, um, briefly talked about responsive web design. So, yah, something for everyone, or someone, or maybe no one.

This year my parents gave me a generous gift certificate to Amazon, for my birthday. Leo and I don't exchange gifts for holidays and life events. If we want to buy something we do so when money permits, at the time it permits, which works for us, but it is nice to still get a little spoiled by ...

There's a Gift-Along on ravelry, where you can get hundreds of knit and crochet patterns for 25% off until November 15. More details in my blog post.

I know, it's literally the day after halloween and I'm about to mention the gift-giving season. But let's be honest, if you are going to knit or crochet something for someone, especially if you are looking at hitting one of the gift-giving days of Hanukkah, there's not much time to wait.

Check out the racing stripe. I'm excited to announce that my first serious self published crochet pattern is available now. Aasha starts with a long chain from which the border is worked and then the main pattern is worked into the same foundation chain, up to the neck, decreasing periodically ...
