Update Tonight!

I ‘m completely in love with November, but I know that my winter knitting plans are starting to ramp up. With that in mind, I’ve been working to bring you some of my favorite prints for the upcoming season. I’ll be working this afternoon to set the shop up in preview mode, and everything will be ready to go tonight at nine eastern. I hope you all have a great weekend!!


Episode 182: Just the Shenanigans, Mam

This week’s episode is pretty much all shenanigans….I talk a little about the KitAlong we’re running through November 15th, Rhinebeck, my Rhinebeck haul, and shameless self-promotion. (The next shop update with be November 4th at 9pm eastern.)

I’ll have a more traditional episode with lots of knitting and spinning out late this week!

img_6938I’ve been saving these bags for a special time, and Rhinebeck weekend is it!! I love these awesome little pie birds and their fun fall palette….The divisions between them are even reminiscent of lattice pie tops!!

The update will go live Saturday morning around 7am, so whether you’re grief shopping (not attending NYSW) or getting your cards warmed up (I’ll see you there!), everyone should be able to snag a bag. (Don’t worry west coast folks, even if you sleep in, there should still be a bag for you!)

Episode 181: Askewewewews Me

Harrisville Design’s Friendly Loom Pattern Wizard can very easily by found on their page under the Friendly Loom. (For some reason, Google did not want to take me there when I looked. Google is out to make me look the fool. Clearly that is the sole purpose of their multi-billion dollar company. They’re probably having a celebratory pizza party right now.)
