When 80 Blankets Turned Into 125

If you’ve been following along with my #80Blankets posts then you already know a piece of my story. In case this is our first meeting, let me share some of the blanket history. My wedding was scheduled for December 2020. (“Was” being the key word in this sentence.) We planned to have our ceremony outdoors under a …

The Perks: Living A Yarny Life

Working for a yarn company isn’t all fun and games. There’s plenty of hardcore work to get done, just like any job. But all those perks you might imagine, like an endless supply of yarn and getting to see new colors, yarns, and concepts before they hit the shelves? Yeah. All that is true. And …

Knit it, Drop it

Rewind. It’s one of the new [gasp] acrylic yarns I cant stop playing with. Lightweight, yet speedy quick and bulky. Interesting and fun, but not expensive. This yarn has been keeping my imagination rolling in high gear. I’m working on a very repetitive cable and drop stitch stole. I envision it being worn walking along …

Finding Inspiration

Creativity can’t be turned on with the push of a button. Not for me anyway. I wish that were the case. I could never come up with anything worthwhile under the gun, so to speak. My design method always involved putting the yarn I wanted to use within sight and waiting for an idea to …
