  • Kelly of KnitSwag has come up with a cool new software that allows her to create illustrations in printed knitting. Think of it like graph paper, but it is accurate knit stitches and the image is created with those knit stitches. She takes these designs and puts them on fun stuff like mugs, water bottles, note cards, fabric and more. You can find her shop on Etsy and follow her on Instagram. DISCOUNT CODE: Kelly is offering listeners a discount. Simply use the code UNRAVELING15 for 15% off almost everything in the store. The code is good through May 7, 2020.
