Hope everyone is enjoying this first full weekend of October! The weather is getting cooler, so I’m sure you’re doing a bit of knitting and internet exploring. For this Sunday’s ‘Meet the Designer‘, I’d like to introduce Rebecca Roush from ChemKnits, her knitting blog.
So why the name ChemKnits? Rebecca went to college for biological chemistry, and designing knitting patterns helped her keep cool and collected. You can learn more about Rebecca and see all of her patterns on her AllFreeKnitting designer profile.
In addition to patterns, Rebecca has some wonderful tutorials which we’ve featured on Stitch & Unwind in the past! We’ve presented you with her tutorials on how to kettle dye yarn and how to do an I-cord bind-off.
