I love to knit & wear my handknits in the summer. So when the warm weather rolls around I'm all about still wearing my pretty shawls. Our newest pattern - BRADWAY, is all about summer. It's inspired by jean cut-offs, summer night strolls, camping, and lakeside relaxation with loved ones - BRADWAY is that warm, lazy feeling summer brings.
Textured twisted ribs & knit purl combos make for a modern rustic triangular shawl that’s a fun & relaxing knit. BRADWAY will be your shawl of choice for cool evenings around the campfire & lazy summer night strolls. Read More

I had a wonderful reminder recently of the importance of making handmade memories and how powerful they can truly be.

I love to sew and being a mom to 2 girls, one of my hopes is that they will both also love to sew. Rachel Low's new book - "Girl's Guide to DIY Fashion" is a breath of fresh air in our house. Both my girls went crazy for it and were begging to get sewing after flipping through the bright, colorful and inspiring pages! Read More

My favorite part of our knit alongs is the wonderful and amazing community of knitters who join in each year!
What makes knit alongs so fun? Community and frienships (both new & old). One thing I notice and treasure so much is the loving and kind group of knitters in our Ravelry group. You guys are always busily chatting away (I can hardly keep up..lol) and sharing, inspiring, helping, teaching and just enjoying knitting with each other virtually.
Ravelry is fun to use but can sometimes seem intimidating if you've never used it. Here's some tips below to get the most out of our knit along thread! Read More
