    Having completed the 30 Day Knitting Challenge, I thought it might be handy to have all the questions in one place and link them to my answers. As a tech writer, back in the day one of my favorite things to do was create an index for a document – this definitely hits that button. All…

  • 30/30 Ravelry

    30 Day Knitting Challenge Day 30: What’s your name on Ravelry? If you don’t have a Ravelry account, why? Surprise!

  • 24/30 Design and Dye

    30 Day Knitting Challenge Day 24: Have you ever made your own pattern or dyed your own yarn? How did it turn out? Yes to both. I have several patterns for sale on Ravelry and etsy, which all started with the Owl Honeycomb Blanket. That wasn’t actually my first pattern, just the first one I…

  • 23/30 Fantasy Project

    30 Day Knitting Challenge Day 23: If you had the supplies (and patience) for it, what project would you start today? Hands down, another Bohus cardi or two; I especially like The Blue Light and The Forest Darkness. And The Wild Apple. And The Spring. Maybe I should just plan on knitting my way through…
