Build-a-Block Series: Knit Stitch Block #1- Lacy Eyelet Vines

I’m excited to announce my Build-a-Block Series, where I will post a new knit stitch block pattern each Wednesday for the month of January.  Not only can you learn some new skills on a small scale, but you and your friends can embark on a meaningful project, and knit individual squares that can be joined together to make a beautiful afghan which you can donate to the charity of your choice.

Each week, I’ll also post tutorials and tips, so check back often to stay in the loop.  While you explore each of these stitch patterns, please feel free to post your own knitting tips or questions. We’re all here to help each other, so let’s share the love together!

Just think, by enjoying the craft you love, you can keep someone warm this winter. When you’re ready to donate your finished blanket, visit and click on the Charity Resource page. I can’t think of a kinder way to share your caring and compassion for others!

    Thank You for such a lovely block to knit. This is a really great idea, and I am looking forward to next week’s block. I’m excited to get started!!

  2. Thank you, I’ve been looking for something like this for my knitting group. We will donate it to a breast cancer patient that is inpatient for treatment/complications.
