I’m trilled to welcome you back after a brief pause, but I truly appreciate the encouragement I have received on and off this blog. 474 more words

Knitting

The force is strong with this one!

Whenever I come across licensed character fabric in the remnant bin, I feel compelled to buy it. Licensed fabric is expensive, and remnants are a great opportunity to get the fabric for 50-75% off, depending on the sale.  458 more words

Why I Knit

Sometimes it all comes together just right.  The magical combination of pattern and yarn.  A fabulous fit.  This is why I knit.

The only thing better than creating a beautiful knit garment is wearing one.  1,121 more words

Otomi Applique Quilt

I finished another quilt recently, for a wedding celebration of some good friends. I am so very happy with this one!


It was inspired by Otomi embroideries of Mexico, where animal shapes are embroidered in a bright thread all over the fabric. 126 more words

Lindsay's (not-for-knitting) Bag

Remember when I made my roommate Katie this whimsical knitting bag for Christmas?

I recently decided I wanted a bag of my own! I was keeping skeins of yarn in one of my favorite reusable grocery store “green bags,” and to be honest, I just wanted the bag back in my collection for grocery purposes. 156 more words
