Yes!! It was such a stupid accident that I still can't believe how it happened. Maybe avoid walking around half asleep in the dark in a new house perhaps? Oh well, things happen. The hardest part is we are having the most beautiful weather here in Colorado(70-75!) and growing season is just starting! Thanks for stopping by today Steph! -Laura

A quilt made out of fabric with the kids drawings is a great idea. Go for it! -Laura

What a sweet little bonnet! Isn't the Swans Island merino a dream to knit with? Great color combination on the hat. It looks fabulous on you!

Yes lots of knitting projects, too bad I'm not very good at being a patient. Especially when gardening season is practically here! You should check out Spoonflower. It is a bit on the pricey side, but I have to try it at least once.

Oh how funny indeed! I loved that colorway you chose on your birthday sweater. Funny enough, the peachy-pink sweater in this post was a recent birthday sweater too. Glad you enjoy the skirt tutorial! Thanks for taking the time to read and comment today! -Laura
I sure do to! I am not very good at being sidelined. I really think that all the Quince and Company yarn lines are wonderful and I think their prices are great. Happy you finally discovered it! Thanks for reading! -Laura

Painful, yes. Breathing is also not much fun. I am not sure if it's due to the clavicle or the fractured sternum. Probably a mix of the two. I am excited about making some of my own fabric. It is something that I have thought about for a very long time. Thanks for taking the time to read and comment! -Laura

Oh, where do I even start. This past week began normal enough. I was getting some good knitting in and dusted off the sewing machine to make Violet a skirt for her birthday. A new hat pattern was fresh off the needles. A quick pair of end of winter mittens... Continue reading

What a blanket hog! They are all so lovely Steph! I love the mitered square ones. I imagine one day I will have the time and patience to knit a blanket like these. Only hope it turns out at least half as lovely as yours!

Thank you Anna! Sometimes it is so hard to choose what to do with fabric that has such a lovely pattern on it. -Laura
Love Nova Naturals! What a generous giveaway! And love those naturally dyed eggs.

Last week I briefly mentioned that maybe there would be a second handmade part to Violets' birthday present. These fabrics (Acorn Trail by Teagan White for Birch Organics) have been on my shelf for quite some time. I may, or may not have blogged that I was planning to make... Continue reading

The new release of the Fort hat pattern is here. With so many girls to knit and design for, this one had to include something for those sons, brothers, boyfriends and hubbies! I also enjoy making patterns that include lots of sizes, so little sisters can look just like their... Continue reading

Yesterday, we celebrated Violets' 4th birthday. I simply cannot believe that our youngest is 4! Hardly a baby anymore, despite still having a teeny-tiny voice (although quite husky), dimples on her fingers and elbows and us all still referring to her as "the baby". Such a sweet and sassy little... Continue reading

Thanks Jill! I too quite enjoy the quiet late night crafting sessions. I would much rather be a little tired the next day than not have that time. Thanks for taking the time to read today! -Laura

Thank you Anna. I think many of us crafters stay up to the wee hours trying to pull of last minute gifts. Many of Xmas pasts I have been up sewing doll clothes for special dolls, pants, skirts, dresses and knitting everything from sweaters and hats and scarves to dresses and now this blanket. Can't imagine it will end any time soon. The Phoebe mice pattern is adorable! -Laura

Beautiful ...and beautifully written Amanda! Surely the emotions and memories that come with this blanket will only grow. I imagine the years of use, entwined with every stitch and every scrap, will leave you with nearly a lifetime of memories from your motherhood in a single object. It is truly lovely! Many of us remember you casting on for it, a very long time ago indeed. Thank you for always being so inspiring.

I literally just laughed out loud for more than one reason! First, wrapping balls of wool with a note....classic. For Xmas, I showed my 12 year old the box of yarn that was still to be knit into her blanket. It was at least started, but I just finished it two weeks ago. It was made with bulky weight yarn. Second, myself and the word organized may have never been mentioned in the same sentence. Maybe the tides have turned... -Laura

What a wonderful way to get some quality, quiet time, with your girl....and knitting all the while. Enjoy your traveling errands!

A habit of mine is to wait until the last minute to make a gift for the girls. You know, the kind that keeps you up until 3 a.m. the night before you plan on gifting it (obviously because you started it a week too late) then tell them they... Continue reading
