After finishing the Antler Cardigan and Hat set I thought it would be nice to make matching hats for some new little ones on the way and their big brothers. I really enjoyed working with the Malabrigo Rios yarn. Very squishy. I've certainly had a lot of fun with this pattern as well. For the … Continue reading Babies and Big Brothers
I've discovered a new pattern set this year, that I've been having a lot of fun knitting. I follow a lot of various knitters and designers on Twitter and Instagram, and had seen the Antler Hat by tincanknits around, and was intrigued by it's simple elegance. Early this E asked for a new hat, but she decided she wanted … Continue reading Antlers
Because its not always about the hair and makeup.
What a week and a half. I'm late on the weekly photo and don't have much to say. I finished the entrelac hat, but still need to block it. Last weekend was the dance recital - the culmination of 10 months of very hard work which resulted in a beautiful show. As E gets older … Continue reading 4/52
Last week we took E to NYC for an afternoon to see the New York City Ballet at the David H. Koch theatre in Lincoln Center. It was a drippy, sometimes very rainy day, but we did have a lot of fun. We meandered around the city, visited the Apple Store and some high end … Continue reading 3/52

Well, since the first … Continue reading New skills

Next on the needles
I mentioned that I went to the Knitter's Review Retreat last fall. In addition to the wonderful workshop I enjoyed visiting the vendors. It's much smaller than any fiber festival, so you get a good chance to really talk to the vendors. One of them was Kathryn Alexander who designs some of the most colorful … Continue reading Next on the needles
Last fall I went to a wonderful retreat with Clara Parkes - The Knitter's Review Retreat. I'd never been to one before, and felt a lot of trepidation about the entire thing - I am rather shy, and as my blog names states, not one to join a lot of groups. Well, no surprise to … Continue reading 1/52
Yup, it's been a while since I've posted. Could be a while before I post again! I don't know if any one really follows per se, or notices my absences. I have a lot of blogs in my feed reader, and while some are more regular than others, I rarely remove anyone from my feed. … Continue reading Finishing!
