I have more or less completely taught myself to knit from tutorials on the Internet. I am constantly learning new techniques, new ideas, and new designs. It’s what I love about knitting – that there is always a new challenge. I pride myself on learning new techniques on YouTube, and was incredibly excited to get my […]

A little over a week ago, I went to the Albuquerque Fiber Arts Fiesta, our local fiber festival, for the first time. It was such fun to meet amazing vendors like Crave Yarn and Hooked On You. (Interviews with them coming soon!) It’s always fun to go to a fiber festival wearing your latest and […]
I taught myself to knit with lots of youtube videos and the help of friends. So I decided to create my own beginner knitter videos to teach what I wish I had known starting out! Please let me know what you think or if you have any feedback! I’m happy to help with any knitting […]
I want to take a moment and acknowledge all the amazing moms out there. Particularly, my mom, because clearly she’s the best. She’s taken care of me, my husband, and even my dogs in the most caring and wonderful way I could ever ask for. She also makes delicious tortillas. Here she is showing off […]

A very special holiday is upon us, May the Fourth, Star Wars Day. It’s also my wedding anniversary because my husband is a big Star Wars fan, I’m a converted fan, and also I really enjoy any excuse for a holiday and puns. Let’s celebrate with some quick Star Wars knitting and crochet projects!
I’m so excited that I have a guest post featured on the amazing Donna Druchunas’ Sheep to Shawl blog.
Donna is a legit-as-hell knitter, designer, and teacher! (That’s obviously a technical knitting term.) She has eleven knitting books published, including a sock book I really need to pick up. (I need all the sock knitting help I can get.) She even has a section of her blog devoted to Subversive Knitting. How cool is that?
So lately, I’ve had two favorite things to do: blogging and knitting. But because that wasn’t enough, I went and decided to better myself … by taking a web design class at night. Perhaps I was tempting the carpal tunnel gods. I purled and clicked and hunched with great delight. And then my wrists said: “You think […]
I met Carla on Ravelry and I was immediately excited by her blog, Tiny.Angry.Crafter. I used to call theater productions I produced and directed One Tiny Woman Productions, so I related immediately! Carla’s blog shows off her fabulous fashion sense and provides interesting insights into vintage knitting and sewing. Let’s get to know Carla better, shall we? […]
