Jessica Anderson


Jessica M. Anderson started knitting about 8 years ago when her husband thought it was silly to spend $60 on a pair of longies (he has since spent well more than $60 on yarn and knitting supplies!). After spending about a year sample knitting for Blue Sky Alpacas, she decided to try designing her own patterns. She has been designing every since. When she isn’t knitting, she is juggling homeschooling her 5 kids, sharing coffee with friends, or studying as a student midwife.

Cozy Does It Cardi

This cardi has it all ― beautiful colors, secret pockets, cozy front panels and sleeves that stay in place.

Firefighter Set KAL: The Final Patterns

Today is the day when all the firefighting accessories will join the vest and hat from last time: an adorable Dalmatian, a squirting hose (just yarn, not water), and a soft but realistic axe. This set is the perfect way to bring your child’s playtime to life, and I’m sure the anticipation has been high all month. The many different pieces of this design make it one that your little one will be able to interact with in many different ways—you might have trouble convincing the new firefighter to wear anything else!
