Social DisKnitting: Day 91

Previously, I worried that I didn’t have enough content for these posts anymore, but now I’m trying to remember all I’ve done since the last one. I finished my Wonderful Wallaby sweater: Haven’t had a chance to take modeled photos, yet, but a blocking photo works for proof of FO, right? I’ve also finished two […]

Social DisKnitting: Day 70

I don’t know about you all, but I’m starting to have actually good days for the first time since this all started. Hope it lasts a little while, anyway. After ripping out the neckline twice, I finished my bed-sheet summer dress. I’m so happy with it. Along the same line, I finished the hood of […]

Social DisKnitting: Day 63

I’m still going! Albeit slower than when we started social distancing. My super secret surprise project last week was a Mother’s Day gift, of course. When Mom took her first spinning class, she came home and wanted to through away the yarn she spun. I stopped her, singing the praises of a first-spun yarn, and […]

Portuguese Knitting

Disclaimer: I acknowledge that this style of knitting is in no way exclusive to Portugal. It’s just the term I’ve seen used most, so it’s the term I will use for this post. I love taking classes. Some people find this hard to believe, because I also teach classes. That just means I know there’s […]

Social DisKnitting: Day 56

Stay-at-home orders may be lifting, but I (fortunately, I keep telling myself) will be home for a while longer. When I wrote my post about the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival, I wished I was writing this post instead. I thought I had so much going on. Now that I’m finally writing this post, I’m […]

Social DisKnitting: Day 47

This may be my last Social DisKnitting post. The statewide stay-at-home order is supposed to lift on May 3, and while I’m eager to get out the house, I’m still scared and angry. So who knows, maybe I’ll still do these updates under a new name. I have two new finished object! The hats I […]

Social DisKnitting: Day 41

I hope you’re all doing well and still crafting, ’cause I was not. I had a massive panic attack Saturday morning, and nothing got done all weekend. I’ve been feeling so much better these last few days, but this post didn’t get done on Tuesday because I felt like I didn’t have much to show. […]

Social DisKnitting: Day 33

I’m dipping again. The stay-at-home order extensions will be necessary, but that brought all the panic back. Let’s focus on the yarn things, instead: I finished the reusable menstrual pads, my Rebel Alliance Skull and Crossbones beanie, and this little pocket duck: I cast on my next Star Wars hat: the Baby Yoda slouch. I […]

Social DisKnitting: Day 26

We’ve been at this for almost a month, you guys. Is this almost “normal” to anyone else? I mean, I’m still freaking out, but no where near as bad as when this all first hit. It helps me to have a semblance of a routine, anyway. Hope you all are doing well. One new cast-on […]

Knitting for Stress Relief

I’ve had an influx of people reaching out to me to see if I can virtually teach them how to knit. It’s not all that surprising. We’re stuck at home, and we’re looking for something to pass the time that is both stress-relieving and productive. Knitting is perfect for this. Now, I’ve been teaching knitting […]
