All in Knitting Projects

The Mid-Project Blues

There is no pretty picture here yet. Just a super complex pattern and another few thousand stitches to go. I talk about knitting hell and purgatory that we go through before the satisfaction of a completed garment. Knitting is hard. At least it can be.

Free Hat Pattern: Happy Thanksgiving

This post is coming out on Thanksgiving Day and boy howdy did I have a tough time deciding what to write about. Not for lack of topics, mind you, but because I have too many topics! There’s Black Friday which I have lots of opinions on. There’s Thanksgiving events, which comes with all sorts of family baggage (figuratively and literally). There’s the actual giving of thanks for the many many blessings in my life. And then there’s all the things that I have been making! Because, it turns out, November is the time that I start to feel feverish if I’m not making stuff.
