Home again … for now! ;)

[Translate] Wow!! What an amazing 2 months it has been! If you haven’t been following my Facebook or Instagram posts, you might not know that I have been traveling across the UK and Europe for the last 2 months! It was my intention to be blogging regularly as I visited yarn shops and shows etc, but let’s just say I was overwhelmed by all the experiences I had while over there! I did manage a few posts, but after Woollinn (which I will have to add to), I was entirely too busy to post regularly. I did do “mini” […]

Getting Better at Knitting

[Translate] Like most things in life, the secret to becoming better at knitting is to embrace the social aspect of it and to congregate with other knitters!When I learned to knit I didn’t have the benefit of YouTube and numerous knitting groups to choose from. Yes, I came from the school of hard knocks and have frogged many a project and made many, many, mistakes.

Stitches West Review – Part 4

[Translate] I’m sure you’ve decided you’re going to make a valiant effort to attend Stitches West next year – or at least another major knitting event near you. Even still, I’m going to post once more about Stitches West. With that, there is still a lot that I won’t get to tell you about and I will be doing feature posts on specific vendors in the near future. However, I haven’t told you about all the phenomenal classes at all levels of knitting/crocheting that are offered at Stitches West and taught by the best instructors in the industry. I […]
