I came down with covid on Feb. 29th, 2020. This was the day before the CDC confirmed the first case of community spread in the nation. I called my doctor’s office and asked to be tested - the receptionist literally laughed at me. I ended up being sick off and on for two weeks then very sick for another four. At one point I called a friend and asked her to check in on me the following morning, I told her on a scale from 1 to 10 with 10 being “i’m pretty sure i’m going to die” I was about a 7. She was worried enough she tried to talk me into calling an ambulance. I told her if I was going to die I would rather do it in the comfort of my home with dogs. I didn’t feel I could share with friends that I had been sick, there was a lot of fear in those early days. My kiddo had been shipped off to his dad when schools shut down so I was utterly alone. I didn’t touch another human for 6 weeks. I only saw friends from my porch when they came to drop groceries. I was too sad and sick to work on anything intricate. This shawl kept me sane during the fear and loneliness, really was my lifeline.

So in love with these DK minis from Orange Flower, so excited by how well *all of them* play with my main color. Orange Flower works some magic, I have never bought skeins from an update that did not play well together. Thinking of a lovely shawl for late fall. What garment does this inspire for you?

Finally finished my Gurthang mitts! Couldn’t be happier. I used small batch hand dyed yarn by Widdershin Woolenworks from Taos, NM. The pattern is Ballydesmond by Irish Girlie Knits. Gurthang is a sword of Middle Earth. Túrin Turambar used it to slaw Glaurung, the first of the dragons of Morgoth.

Feeling nostalgic for the Whitman Slouchy Hat, the hat that started my journey as an indie designer. I was really blown away by the support my Ravelry family gave me (and other small indie designers and yarn dyers!) I’ve put designing on the back burner while I did a life re-start (divorce, grad school, moved across the country), looking forward to rekindling this passion.

❤️❤️❤️ the moment a design comes together. I’ve been searching and frogging with this variegated Yowza for a year, waiting for the proper harmony of color play, drape, design, and flow to emerge. So excited to watch this unfold 😍👌🏼

10/16/2018

You know those moments when the world just must stop because this Yarn that has been singing your name won’t stop until you cast on? This is one of those moments. I surrendered because I am missing knitting and my knit community so much. I’ve been in grad school for the last 2 years and just moved halfway across the country. For months I haven’t allowed myself the luxury of knitting (or posting on IG). During the move this one skein of fi*****ng got separated from the herd. I meant to sell it because it came to me by a fluke and I never cared for the color, but these last few weeks this stray has been following me around and I’ve fallen in love. Hello again my knit friends, looking forward to falling in love with you all again.

Gah! I’ve been fighting a very, very strong urge to cast on the newest design by Jenn Steingass @knit.love.wool. If I had appropriate qty of appropriate wool I would be all over that. As it is, slogging through finals for my masters, day dreaming of spring break so I can cast it on! What are you fantasizing of getting on the needle?

My Hope Is The Thing shawl in Cephalopod Yarns Skinny Bugga, Blue Lobster colorway. Ran out of Yarn, had to skip the edging rows that correct for the curl. Knitting reminds me: perfection is a myth, good enough is good enough. What life lessons have you learned from knitting?

Thanksgiving is rough, being away from my kidlet, missing my fathers who have passed. Knitting therapy - getting me through to the other side. How has knitting helped you in difficult times?

The Trusty Hat is now live! 50% off in the ravelry store, no coupon required, but you can use the coupon code Golden to download free until midnight :)

The Trusty Hat was named after one of my favorite yarns: Trusty has a lovely hand, it’s soft and lofty but manages to wear well. The cable stitch pattern really pops and is incredibly fast and easy, and best of all it is fully reversible – just turn it inside out for a new look!

Started snowing in Samta Fe this week and I could not find any of my Whitmans, so last night I cast on with this lovely BMFA Socks That Rock Medium-weight in Valkarie. Love these giant skeins, will have enough for a pair of fingerless mitts as well. Happy snow knitting out there!
