Be Thankful for Your Knitting

Since the beginning of the year, I’ve been trying to get my house in order. You know, finding a place for everything, organizing my junk, and throwing out what’s no longer needed. This includes my knitting, too. Once my stash gets too overcrowded in the large armoire I keep it in, and starts gushing out […]

Do Not Read This Unless You Love To Knit!

Today is a rainy day. Pouring down rain as a matter of fact. A very good day for staying inside and knitting. Or cleaning. Or organizing. Or reading. Or watching the football playoffs. In fact, the rain began as a little ice and two people fell on the sidewalks coming out of Mass this morning. […]

Knitting Yarns, Choose Your Story

Life is unique, isn’t it? So many roads to travel, so many decisions to make, so many moments that are far from ordinary every day! Yes, life can seem boring and so-so on a daily basis; after all, we all do the same things day in and day out, yet there are always those “special” […]

Finding New Knitting Products To Try

Free Knitting Patterns, Or . . .

Or how I learned to stop worrying and love the (yarn) bomb! Well, not really. Have you seen yarn bombing?? You know, what they call graffiti or urban knitting, where street artists cover everything in big cities from statues to bike racks to entire buses. And you could cover those Citi Bikes too, in NYC, […]

Christmas Patterns to Knit

It’s Friday once again! This week has been a tough one. Difficulties with jobs, cellphones, and wondering about the future (you know all the news about Ebola, etc.) and it makes me want to just pick up my knitting needles and go crazy! Do nothing but knit! Knit until all my stash is gone. Until […]

Which Knitting Gift Do YOU Want In Your Stocking?

This is scary. It’s September 30th. A little more than two months to knit gifts for Christmas. Any knitter knows these things take time! Sometimes, weeks and weeks. Sometimes, a weekend. Either way, if you’ve been thinking about which knitting gifts to give family or friends, better stop thinking and start knitting! If you need […]

Do You Know Your Knitting Needles?

When you think about knitting, what comes to mind? Is it the yarn you’ll be using? How about the finished product? Or the knitting stitches you’ll be needing? Chances are it’s one of those three things; but it’s rarely your knitting needles. Oh, they’re there alright; but never seem to be of much importance. But […]
