Knit (and Crochet) Local

I’ve got to forewarn you that this month is going to be a parade of projects. Book projects, mag projects, lots of projects that I worked on quite some time ago are finally published. And my slightly-lazy-when-it-comes-to-blogging self has been remiss in posting. Mostly because I actually took a few days off like the rest [...]

A Healthy Dose of Inspiration

As a designer, I do a lot of swatching. Whether just for fun or with a specific idea in mind, making swatches gets me in the groove of crocheting, and in an almost meditative way, lets my mind wander to think of new ideas.

Sometimes I look at the swatches I have already made, and am [...]

Heady Affairs Blog Tour

Edit: The Giveaway is now over, and entries are closed. Thanks for reading!
Today I am a stop on the blog tour for Shannon Mullett-Bowlsby’s new collection of designs–Heady Affairs: 7 Impetuous Hats to Crochet. I first “met” Shannon through a mutual gardening friend on Facebook, and then shared lots of laughs with him at a [...]

Blog Book Tour: Modern Log Cabin Quilting

I first met Susan Beal through the internet, back in the early 2000s. I sometimes miss that time–the internet was small and a whole lot of sharing went on in a seemingly private space. So much has changed since then! We met in person at a get-together in Brooklyn, and I bought a pretty necklace [...]

Blog Book Tour: A Knitting Wrapsody

Every so often a knitter will come into the local yarn shop where I work and admire some of my crocheted samples (both my + others’ designs). They’ll ask if there is a way to create similar textures in knitting, and until now, there really wasn’t a good reference I could give them. Enter Kristin [...]

My Maine Mitts

I’ve been scouring ravelry lately, looking at all sorts of interesting things as I’m in a place where I have a chance to catch my breath and maybe, you know, make something for myself for once. I wanted to make some fingerless mitts because my hands literally feel like they might crack off when it’s [...]

Applique Your Way!- Giveaway

ETA: We have a winner, and it’s PJ (comment #24)!! Thanks to all who entered, the drawing is now closed.
If you ever read Adorn (RIP),  you probably know the work of Kayte Terry (or, perhaps you know her blog, This is Love Forever). I’d known Kayte for a long time via my crafty internet circle, [...]

Giveaway #1: Wrapagami

If you’ve ever cleaned up the wrapping paper after a major holiday, you know a thing or two about how much waste is created in giftwrapping.”But but!”–you might say, there’s something so wonderful about the presentation when it comes to gift giving, and Jennifer Playford would agree. She’s the author of Wrapagami: The Art of [...]
