Great news! I just uploaded .pdf files for all the current cold comfort hat patterns. I hope that offering the patterns in this handy, downloadable, format will make it easier for everyone to indulge in that all-important knitting "me time".
four hats to get you thinking about Fall...and more to come!
On a personal note...like life, www.coldcomfortknits.com is a perennial work in progress. As a recovering perfectionist, it was really hard for me to hit Publish before everything was "perfect". But when I decided to launch this website, I made a conscious decision embrace the work-in-progress model, and resist the urge to wait (forever) for "the right time". FYI, there is never the right time.
When I'm not working part-time at my local yarn store, I work full-time for cold comfort, where there is precisely one employee...me. I source the yarn, wind the yarn, design the hats, knit the hats, photograph the hats, write the patterns, create the pdf's, post to IG, write this blog, and occasionally sleep. Oh, I also design paid patterns for Raverly. Yes, my life revolves around string. Part of the decision to wear all hats ("all hats" lol), meant accepting that I can't do everything...well, at least not all at once.
So, instead of a "perfect" site you can use "one day", I give you this incomplete & imperfect website today. Plus, my promise that, every day, I'm doing my best to add content that you'll find useful, and enjoyable. If you're enjoying this site, please feel free to leave a comment below...apparently positive reinforcement is good for my recovery, lol, lol, lol!
Hello & Welcome!
I'm Alexis, the knitter/designer behind cold comfort knits. My favourite animal is a sheep (obvi). Second in line? Alpacas. But not llamas--those guys are mean! As for house pets? I'm a cat person, 100%. Other things to know about me? My primary knitting fuel is vanilla-hazelnut coffee. And my inner child is actually more of an inner senior-citizen. I'm an old fogey at heart. Nice to meet you! Happy knitting!
