The Tech Bag

I can finally see the finish line for writing the pattern for this bag. As much as I love the whole process of designing, from concept to knitting to writing the pattern, for some reason the last couple of weeks, events have conspired against any attempt I make to finish. I’m close – the pattern is written, I just need …

Rhinebeck

Well, I really don’t know where to start, it was an extravaganza of fun, fiber, fall splendor and frenetic laughter. (apologies for the alliteration, it seemed somewhat apt.) Amy, Adrianne, Martha, Shannon and I had a blast on the drive down, although Shannon had to work, and we took a break for her to do a remote podcast with Vickie …

sock class

I’ve been teaching a sock class at StitchCleveland for the last few weeks, and I have to say, I’m enjoying it so much. Right now, I’m teaching four wonderful women the joys of heel turns and kitchener stitch and I’m not sure who’s getting the most out of it. Watching their knitting skills blossom and their confidence grow is such …

A busy knitting day

Today, I decided to treat myself and spend some time knitting. Strange as it may seem, knitting has been so far down my “to do” list recently, and I felt I needed a fix. I spent some time working on the lovely Fire On The Mountain chevron scarf. I have the STR yarn paired with some black swtc bamboo, which …

goodbye, Rae

Last night, our snb group said goodbye to our founding member, Rae. Ann, Amy, Adrianne, Juniper, Martha, Rae, Stacey and I all celebrated at our favorite sushi house, Sakura and between drinks, good food and great conversation, it was a wonderful night. I am always astounded by this group of women. They each have incredible strengths and skills, as well …

FotM

Last year at Rhinebeck, Heather, Amy and I were early to the show with one prime directive – Socks that Rock. We knew demand would be very high, so we got up early with the express intention of Rockin’. Success was at hand and yummy yarn was purchased. I drooled over mine, so much so that I had to sit …

Birthday Teapots

The lovely ladies from my local snb group threw me a fantabulous birthday party last night. AND all gave me teapots – my favorite thing! A beautiful collection, each one beautiful, just like the women themselves. Thank you ladies.

Knit and Spin

Welcome to the launch of my new blog. After much procrastination I have to say I’m really happy with this new venture. The hubby has done a great job of interpreting my ideas – think I’ll keep him around! Lots on the needles right now, and after a six month dry spell, where for the first time in more than …
