  • Ten MORE Knitting Lessons I Learned the Hard Way

    Oh knitters. I hate to say it, but the year is winding down. I am glancing at my calendar (with tremendous angst) and realizing just how close we are to the end of December. Maybe, for you, 2016 was your best year ever. Or maybe it was your worst. Either way, I am guessing knitting …

  • On the Precipice of Something

    Have you ever come to a place in your life where you pause and realize you are on a precipice? All you have to do is leap, although where you will land is unknown. Uncharted. Maybe it will be greatness.  Perhaps it will be an utter and total flop. There is no choice but to …

  • Knit Early and Often

    Things that make me grouchy: Not being able to knit every day. Not being able to walk or exercise every non-working day.  (I just spontaneously bought this GoKnit pouch to finally try walking and knitting socks. I believe this might fall under the category of two birds with one stone. Or, a future broken ankle. Remains …

  • Knit Your Way Around the World

    It looks like a bomb went off, but we are home, complete with dirty laundry exploding from every which way, suitcases tossed aside precisely where they don’t belong, and and a fridge that offers only mustard, almond butter, and stale sour cream. The return landing may not be pretty, but it was worth the pain.In cased …

  • I Actually Knit A Latvian Braid Without Screwing Up

    How’s that for giving away the punch line in the title? I figure, might as well cut to the chase. Waterlily finally resurfaced after a long siesta, cast aside for holiday knits and pattern development. I am not sure what inspired me to drag this poor babe out. I was itching to make a random …

  • How To Attack Your Knitting With Scissors. And Live.

    So. I can’t say that I have ever before likened myself to a brain surgeon. Or a heart surgeon. Or any kind of skilled miracle worker of the life-saving variety. I am just not brain surgeon-smart. Or talented. (Don’t get me wrong, I know I am awesome. I knit, for goodness sake.) But this week. …

  • Blueberry Waffle Socks (Pair No. 3)

        I have been knitting so many itty bitty sock stitches of late that I think I have officially lost my mind. As in, I drove away from the grocery store in the middle of a full blown mother-toddler meltdown (it was ugly) with my wallet flying!!!! off the top of my car*. I …

  • My 2016 Knitting Bucket List of Must-Knits!

    As I wrap up my final stitches on my holiday knits, I promise myself I will never knit socks for Christmas gifts again amidst a barrage of under-breath-muttered profanity, tense neck muscles, and dark thoughts, calmly allow my mind to wander to the future with poise and patience not unlike a Buddhist monk. My next …

  • On Winter

    I know winter isn’t technically here yet (really?!?), but it feels like it is here. I can tell when it is time to get up at 7:00 because the light finally starts peaking through the curtains. Just barely. Mornings feel slower, unless it’s a school/work day. There’s just no hurry to get up and go …
