Baby Knitting Extravaganza

There has been a recent bumper crop of babies in my social circle. And of course my own cuddly little guy needs a few new things – legwarmers, hats, things that I can work on here and there without a huge amount of time or brainpower.

It’s been enormous fun, though, to see things trickle off the needles at twice their usual speed.

Smells Like Fall Spirit

Good morning, knitters of the world. I am very excited to make my first post on my fancy new website. At the moment, the smell of wood smoke is drifting across the yard, and the breeze this morning was bitterly cold.

So, of course, I layered up in multiple hand-knit sweaters and a hat before I left for work.

What’s better than an Acer covered by a super-chunky Aidez, and topped with a Hendreary in Madelinetosh?

Maybe a cute baby in a pile of fall leaves (wearing a hand-knit hat, of course).
