  • TNNA Summer 2017

    I had a wonderful weekend in Columbus, Ohio attending TNNA! A big thank you to my dear friend Melynda, of French Press Knits, for making the trip with me. We couldn't believe it was already our 7th time going!  This year I didn't have a booth on my own but I did have NEW products and they were in the Bryson Distributing Booth.   NEW Tags…     and NEW Bags…             Summer TNNA is always a great time. Just being around fellow knitters is wonderful and catching up with knitting friends is the BEST! Here are some pictures from the weekend…Pictured...

  • BOOK REVIEW: Comfort & Joy

    My dear knitting friend, Melynda has recently published her first knitting book, Comfort & Joy and today I'm honored to be part of her blog/book tour! Before I get into how wonderful this book is, I'd like to take a little trip down memory-lane… Melynda and I randomly met in 2010 online via Ravelry. She commented on a cute little boy sweater I had just finished (Tweezie) and that is all it took! That comment sparked a virtual conversation and we quickly realized that we lived just a couple of hours away from each other! Days after we met online we were already meeting in person and carpooling to Detroit to meet The Yarn...

  • BOOK REVIEW: Grown

    I’m honored to be one of the stops on the ‘Grown’ blog tour! Grown is the newest book self-published my friend and fellow knitwear designer, Kate Oates.

Kate has had such success with her line of children designs that she decided to take 10 of her well-known and loved children’s patterns and transform them into adult versions. What a brilliant idea, right?! With that came the birth of Grown… Grown is a refined collection that features raglan-style sweater designs with very little finishing and sewing....

    Field Trip, A 2016 Plucky Knitter Collection, just released yesterday and I'm so honored to be part of the beautiful collaboration!
