Giving knitting another go

I am an admittedly bad knitter. I can purl, knit and follow a pattern, but getting the project to turn out the right size is always a challenge. A few months ago I bought yarn to knit a sweater to go with Angela’s Easter dress that I made, and now I’m under the gun to […]

Well … it’ll fit next year

When I started¬†Little Sister’s Dress a few months ago I planned to make it in the six months size, but I think Angela will be 18 months or maybe even two years old before she fills out the finished garment. And it will definitely be a tunic, not a dress. It’s the thought that counts […]

It’s a Christmas miracle

It’s Christmas Eve and I don’t have any last minute sewing to do … It’s a Christmas miracle. Normally about this time I’m freaking out about how exactly I’m going to finish everything and get it wrapped in time. Honestly, it doesn’t really even feel like Christmas if I’m not still up at 5 a.m. […]

Last-minute gift: GAP-tastic cowl

This post is for all you quilters out there that are also closet knitters. I started and finished the GAP-tastic Cowl in one week. Yes, just one week, and I am by no means a fast knitter. This pattern is super simple. You just alternate knit and purl stitches, so even a beginner can handle […]
