What makes me happy? Knitting, my kids' smiles, digging potatoes out of the garden, the first fire of the season in the fireplace, and of course, ice cream.

Let me begin by introducing myself. My name is Katie Boyette and I'm a knitting designer, more specifically, a designer of knitted toys. My daughter, Sophia, is in 1st grade.

This story rings so true. Publishing a book was a dream of mine, and after I did, I was very happy. But yes, the notes and emails do come in non-stop, mostly good, but some bad. And while I do hope to keep writing, it's a shift, taking knitting from a way of finding inner peace to well...a job. There's nothing I'd rather do for a living, but it does change things, and I do have to work really hard at finding a balance between family and knitting. I can definitely respect your desire to not publish the patterns. Your toys are so special, and that much more special to the few who are lucky enough to have one.

Julie, I'm sure it must be obvious from all these lovely comments how much joy and positivity you bring into the lives of so many with your own experience. Your blog is one of my very favorites. You make me want to be a better knitter, and most of all...a better mom. You are an inspiration to me. Love, Katie
