Every Way Wrap

I was so excited about the Every Way Wrap when it came out in the Fall 2009 issue of Interweave Knits.

Stash Organization



I'm on vacation this week, but I thought I'd share a video I took last week while I was home during the photoshoot day. I recently reorganized my yarn stash (and frankly am rather embarrassed by the meagerness of my stash, but now that I can see it all, I'll be much more inspired to start projects!).

Ten Stitch Twist



I just started knitting Frankie Brown's Ten Stitch Twist Blanket. She has the neatest charity concept - she's selected a charity close to her heart - the Children's Liver Disease Foundation, and offers her patterns free on Ravelry, hoping that those who use her patterns will donate to the charity. This is a great way to support a charity when you select a… Continue
