Steek it to Me

I am enraged by the ordeals Georgia voters had to go through just to make their voices heard in a primary election. November’s national election cannot be a repeat, especially as we continue to fight a pandemic. I encourage you to donate your funds to Stacey Abrams’ Fair Fight PAC or your time to the […]

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 […]

Virtual Fiber Retreat

After this week of radio silence, I do feel the need to state, unequivocally, Black Lives Matter. If you are able, I hope you will donate to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund or the Black Lives Matter Global Network, or another local or national organization that is fighting the injustices black people, here and all […]

Punch Needle

My fascination with punch needle began when I went to the Estes Park Wool Market last year. It seemed almost too good to be true. Since I’m still stuck at home, I decided to continue on the new-skill path and give it a try. The basic technique of punch needle is using a large, threaded […]

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 […]

Virtual Vogue Knitting Live

I understand Vogue puts on some great shows, but they’re really expensive and usually pretty far away from me. So just like the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival, this was a silver lining virtual event for me! By the time I was able to sign up, most of the classes were sold out, but I […]

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 […]
