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 […]

Social DisKnitting: Day 19

Coming at you live from my apartment (of course) to show you what projects gave me sanity over the last week. I chose to cast on the Crimson KAL first, and it is coming along nicely: I haven’t cast on the crop top yet. My goal was to keep my cast-on-itis in check, but these […]

Summertime

And the livin’ is easy. Or it will be, when winter is actually over. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’m ready. I’m done with the dark, the snow, and the cold. I can’t be the only one because all I see on Pinterest and Ravelry right now are cute, breezy, summer […]

Prairie Knits: Studio Retreat

I was on staff again for the Studio Winter Retreat. This year, we retreated to Gardner, KS, and stayed in a brand new Hampton Inn. We had great classes with national teacher and designer Olga Buraya-Kefelian, the retreat market (manned by yours truly), and, of course, a lot of knitting. Admittedly, I was bummed at […]
