I think I’m developing an obsession. I’ve heard sock knitting was addictive… I’ve fallen for the bug hard. The yarn, the pattern variations, the thrill of completing a pair- it all adds up to one big happy place for me. In the past month, I’ve finished a pair of socks and I’m on my second.
Is there a better way to kick of January 2018 then spending time with talented knitters and 3 FLOORS of yarn? No, my friend, there truly is not. I’m excited to share all about my experience at this year’s vogue knitting live!
Knitting on the go has been a struggle for me- until now! After years of dropping stitches, being left stranded without my knitting, and resorting to odd measures to get my knitting fix, I desperately hope I have figured out how to efficiently and safely knit on the go!
I’m so excited to show you what I’m knitting, reading, and watching this month! I rarely do WIP and FO recaps, so I’ve decided to make it a monthly affair. I’m not the fastest of knitters as well as quite busy, so I think finishing 1-2 projects a month is (almost) manageable for me.
Oh, knitting blogs, how I love you so. I’ve been reading knitting blogs since the first year I started knitting, and they inspire me to keep knitting and growing my skills. With every new year comes new blogs, so I wanted to share what I’ve been reading.Read More
Lace knitting is definitely a scary thing for knitters who have yet to try it. One reason behind this fear is that lace is notoriously difficult to fix because it’s hard to pick up yarn overs and decreased stitches after ripping out mistakes.

New Year’s is my favorite time of the year. I love the way you can hit a reset button on your life, make new changes, and revamp your mindset for the next year. Since I began knitting, in addition to health, school, and personal resolutions, I’ve been making knitting goals.
Knitting for others can burn you out, especially if you’re doing it last minute as most holiday gift-giving knitters are. Luckily, it’s pretty easy to rope your way back from a knitting rut. Within the 6+ years I’ve been knitting, I’ve gone through my fair share of boring knitting periods- but I’m still knitting strong!
For knitters, Christmas is the day where people need our handknits most. For comfort, for warmth, for…”hygge”… winter is the perfect time for a holiday where knitters can bestow gifts upon loved ones. Family time is rejuvenating… Christmas is my favorite holiday.
I’ve got to get back to knitting and baking some vegan Christmas breakfast treats. I hope you have a fun, relaxing, and knitterly Christmas.
