Hi. I'm Marci, the VP of Marketing here. I started in September and did not know how to knit. Over Christmas, my mom taught me on some fairly awful brown acrylic yarn and some straight acrylic needles. She found these supplies in the bottom of her closet--she hadn't touched any of it for about 20 years. I knitted a couple of brown squares, didn't really like it and quit. It was a lovely and fun mother/daughter moment, I just didn't know if knitting was for me.
Then, about a month… Continue

I was just messing around with pictures, trying to get a KP logo to paste onto my Windows Media album cover for my Knitpicks podcasts. It didn't work. I don't know if it is even possible. Oh well.
It's a beautiful day and I should be outside instead of inside trying to clean house and going from room to room getting sidetracked every 5 minutes. I guess I will go fold laundry, at least I can't get sidetracked from that as long as I… Continue

Every have those days where one thing just sparks another and another and ...... well, you get the idea. As I said previously, I had gotten back from a lace conference, where I got several ideas. I received a lovely shawl pin from a friend whos beading work is just awesome. But it got me thinking. I have so many shawls what if I could tat and bead a shawl pin in a similar fashion? I showed to my friend who is quite famous for beaded tatted work on a scale that is beyond my own. Perhaps not… Continue

We had a great 2 days away at our favorite camping/recreation area. Now it is time to come back to this house and dig in to the renovation, getting ready for DS's 7th birthday party this Saturday, and a new sewing job of hemming 6 pairs of curtains. At least I am not sewing them from scratch this time. The material is not a slinky chiffon like the last 8 pair,… Continue

It really is spring in Louisville. My 6th grade is going on a field trip to Newport Aquarium in Northern Ky. It should be a good day and we hope to eat outside on the Ohio River. I am hoping to order some Comfy yarn in the next week or so. Also going to order some Cotlin and try some hand towels. I am having trouble with my land line telephone and there is nothing wrong with the outside lines, so I guess it is my problem. I am going to buy a new cordless and hope it works. I keep my 5 year… Continue

Today I will finish another pair of socks. Next I'm going to start on a pair of socks for my honey. I'll be using a new sock yarn I purchased at Sheep Street in Ind. It's called Tiny Feet. Will knit on circulars size 2. The color is pretty. My honey picked it out!!

Mr. MuddyBin, our rolling composter, wishes you a happy Earth Day.
Tonight's celebration includes a viewing of "An Inconvenient Truth"
- my husband still hasn't seen it, and he thinks I just like it because I have a crush on Al Gore.
I also thought I'd share something interesting that I learned this week about… Continue

I am getting ready to make the Mason Dixon Moderne Baby Blanket
for a friend and need to select some colors. I want to use Swish Worsted
as they live in PA and it gets cold in the winter plus it has such low maintenance. I made one for myself when I was expecting and just love it because I just throw it in the wash with all the rest of the… Continue

I've finished the knitting for the ear or the rabbit but there won't be pictures yet because my other half still has to pick fabric for the inner ear. This may take some time. Excitingly Get Knitted has the knitpicks fixed circular harmony needles in 100cm and 120cm sizes yeah I’ve ordered them. Also this weekend is Wonderwool Wales and I’m going yeah. The only little blip on my horizon is that my PCR’s aren’t working and the knitpicks website is down.

My husband is meeting us there and driving home. Then I can knit!!

I went to visit her on my way to work this morning and she is much brighter. They are going to place a jujunostomy feeding tube today or tomorrow to get her some nutrition. She hasn't puked since Saturday morning, thank goodness. She's peeing, and has been all along, but still not eating on her own.
Thanks to all of you sending energy. It does help a lot. So does knitting...;)

I'm planning out our catalog themes for 2009. Each catalog's theme (there are 8 of them) needs to be a large enough topic that we can develop several related technique tutorials for it as well as a few free patterns fitting that theme and then, of course, lots and lots of projects to inspire you.
So, what I'd like to know is what topics would you like to see addressed in our catalogs? Are there any areas of your knitting life that need a pick-me-up? Is your… Continue

The drive to Spokane was great, uneventful, and I made great time as well as good gas milage. I went to Spokane to the Shuttlebirds 12 annual Tatting weekend. This year the theme was "A tisket, a tasket, my tatting basket". It had been several years since I attended this workshop. I saw some old freinds and made some new accquaintences.
Attendence was good and everyone had a grand time taking classes and learning new techniques. The class I taught was on a concept. Yes, there was a… Continue

What gorgeous weather! It has been such a great week for doing anything! PHilip was able to ride his motorcycle to work almost every day. It only rained one day!
Got a lot of things done this weekend. A good friend gave me some plants so i got those planted on Saturday. It already makes my little forlorn flower beds look better. Now to keep an eye out for weeds and make sure to water them. Also was able to clean out my car front to back. I even cleaned out the well in the back end.… Continue

I just found out about this organization. They send warm clothing and blankets, made by charity knitters and crocheters to kids who really, REALLY need them.
And if you don't happen to live in Denver, if you send them a baby blanket you made, or something similar, they will send you yarn to make more for their project.
I just found them this weekend, and have a small baby blanket going to them tomorrow.
They have a real need for socks and baby… Continue

Hey all! Thanks so much for leaving comments and being my internet friends. I promise soon I will put up pictures of the (very few) projects I am working on. I may have to call my husband in WA to ask how to do that, but I will. LOL
Yes, my dear hubby is, as we speak, (well, as I speak) on his way BACK to WA after a 2 1/2 day visit back home. I can't wait till June when the kids and I can join him up there. He might be able to visit one more weekend before then. Hopefully,… Continue

It's Sunday and snowing...again...
Spent about an hour with her this morning and looked over some radiographs and decided she's getting her tube today. She hasn't vomited since early Saturday morning, but I'm really starting to panic about hepatic lipidosis. When a fat cat stops eating, its a dangerous thing. Their liver starts to metabolize the fat in their bodies and their livers basically turn to pate. Not a good thing and it's very hard to bring them back from it.

I recently visited the page of Amy Knits, where she posted a discussion question, “Where do you knit?” As I thought about this question, I couldn’t help but think of a place where I once knit but am no longer allowed to - the courthouse.
Back in the early 1990s, I was called for jury duty. At the time, my daughter was only three, so after dropping her off at my parent’s house for a day with Grandma and Grandpa, I headed for the courthouse in a neighboring city with my knitting bag.… Continue
