Warm Hands Review

[Translate] Last summer I was delighted to get an e-mail from Kate Davies asking about a collaboration on a project she was working on with Janette Sloan. It turns out they had contacted 13 designers about doing 15 designs (they were each contributing one) for a new book to be published late 2019 – early 2020. Yes, I was a bit giddy, I have to admit. To be recognized by someone of Kate and Jeannette’s stature was a very thrilling moment for me. Needless to say I said YES!!! And to boot, I got to work with a new […]


New Year, New Decade … New You?

[Translate] Welcome to the Roarin’ 20’s! Oops, that was 100 years ago. So what are the 20’s of this era going to be called I wonder? When we look back, what will we say about them? Well, I’m not certain what everyone else is going to say about them, but I know I’m going to say it was the decade I expanded my view and increased my knitting IQ!

While there’s still lots to do in this one, it’s also necessary to start planning the beginning of the next one as well! At camp Hugzzz, things are buzzing!

They’ll line up nicely with the content I need to get for the YouTube show […]


Fall into Knitting …

[Translate] I hope you’ve enjoyed summer where ever you are – and if you’ve been in the UK that week of sunshine that you had in July? I myself have been in Vancouver for a few weeks but mostly in the UK. As luck would have it, I had a fantastic month in Vancouver but missed the said week in the UK. The good news is that I’ll be heading back to Vancouver in time for FALL!! And for the KnitCity yarn festival in early October. And maybe Rhinebeck? Or maybe to Barcelona for a knitting festival there? It’s […]
