The thing I really love about sewing/knitting/crafting is that there is always something new to learn. You could choose never to repeat a project and you wouldn’t run out of options. I think that’s why it appeals to both adventurous people and those who like to stick to their routine once they learn a particular […]

  • As someone getting into knitting more seriously I cannot recommend adding Elizabeth Zimmerman and Barbara walker to your library. You will learn so much about knitting and garment construction, those women were/are true geniuses.

It’s more time consuming but a lot easier to seamlessly add length to a knit garment than a sewn one.ReplyCancel

  • Meredith! That is so awesome. I remember your first hats. You are a lovely knitter.

    Enjoy your knitting.ReplyCancel

Speaking of whirlwind, I cannot imagine time passing any faster. I swear it goes faster with each child. I wish I could […]

You are the month that really got away from me. At least, mentally. December began with what was probably my most major commission of the whole year. It was a rush job that had to be in the hands of the intended recipient by the 13th of the month. This gorgeous quilt was commissioned by […]
