Roadtrip part one

Hello blog friends. It’s been a couple of weeks of crazy fun, and I can’t wait to share it all with you! Firstly, Rhinebeck. In what has become an enviable tradition, Cooperative Press were once again ensconced in a cabin, deep in the woods at Lake Taghknic State Park. Shannon Okey, Stephannie Tallent, Heather Ordover, Anna Dalvi, Kate Atherly and …

Back in the groove

A wonderfully ’70’s adage that best describes just what’s going on around Chez Knitbrit! My Rhinebeck sweater was started on Saturday, and just flew off the needles, I’ll be posting pics and design details next week on it, but meanwhile, I’ve worked up a darling little neck warmer the last couple of days.

As well as launching my book (yes, finally!) …

Big Foot Knits class and Grandad’s Cardi

Her yarns have a depth of color that reminds me of a roaring wood fire: full of glowing warmth with a feel good factor that just doesn’t quit! If …

My week in stitches

Happy Wednesday Everyone! It’s been a rather momentous week for me  as far as knitting goes. As you may recall, I’ve really not enjoyed knitting for a couple of months. Picking up the needles has felt like a chore, not the joy or necessity it had been for so long. However, thanks to this little gem, not only is my mojo …

Reality Bites

Hello fellow knitters and friends, This is a difficult post to write and I thought long and hard before deciding to go ahead. On the one hand, I try and keep this an interesting, light blog, however, on the other hand, as a person, my knitting is an intrinsic part of my life, and it only seems fair that anything …
