  • Coming Soon — A Quick Update from Mwah.

    I know I’ve been a little in and out this summer, more so than I would prefer. What can I say–LIFE has been happening. Like any mother, woman, maker, human, I always aspire to achieve more than perhaps is realistic given the current State of Things. I sat down today to write my seasonal bucket …

  • 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 …

  • On A Mission

    I am a knitter on a mission. Focused. Driven. Determined. To finish this cowl. It’s all I want to do, knitting-wise. I love how the pattern is shaping up, and I can’t wait to share it with you. (Even though BOTH times I cast on my 300 stitches, I accidentally twisted before joining…so now it’s …

  • Essential Knitting Accessories

    Oh knitters. Yesterday on the way to preschool, Reed and I were listening to a children’s story podcast about a little girl having an adventure in the forest. The little girl just happened to be wearing a scarf. When the story was over, Reed asked:  Mama, will you knit me a scarf? My heart pretty …

  • When Blocking IS a Good Idea

    Call me a hypocrite. I know. I can’t even follow my own advice on the matter. I didn’t want to block this cowl because I feared the honeycomb stitch would wither flatly away. Before blocking, it was so plump and dimensional. And I loved that. I developed this cowl in a big, fat loop because I wanted to avoid …

  • 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 …

  • Knit Dispatch From the Road

    It has been a beautiful, busy weekend, with much more to come. We’ve left the drippy weather up north and headed south in search of sun, arriving in lovely Monterey, California. There has been a bit of car knitting, a bit of knitting by the dim lit morning light of the hotel window while the …

  • Denial in Knitting–Let’s Face It!

    This may be ill-advised, but I have come to the realization that denial is a fairly essential part of life. At least my life. As in: No, my pants are certainly not tighter today that than they were a weak ago. (And no, the cookie I just ate that was as big as my face had nothing …
