Welcome to knitting addicts anonymous. Here is where I post snippets of knitting inspiration from all over the Interwebs. Let me know if something here inspires you.
Dear blog followers,
I love having you around. You make me feel listened-to. I hope you stick around and that I can continue to entertain you. * Warning: I talk about knitting a lot. I hope that’s what you signed up for.*
I’d like to pay tribute to a random sampling of my most recent followers. Check out their blogs. You might find a new favorite.

During a recent visit home, Mom and I took some time to play with her new Pat Green drum carder. For those fellow fiber geeks who want to know, Mom has the hand-cranked Blender/Carder model. I don’t have anything to compare it to as it’s the only carder I’ve ever used; however, I can report that it was easy for a beginner (me) to use. The only hard part was attaching the drive band.
I spent a couple of hours knitting in the Gencon Open Crafting Room this afternoon. It’s such a lovely, quiet room and a welcome break from the Saturday crowds. Sadly I do t have much progress to show you on my mittens. I ended up ripping back to the cuff of mitten number 2 after discovering a dropped stitch.
There were lots of other crafty things to enjoy at Gencon today, however, even though…
Happy birthday to me. I’m 33 years old today.
We’re visiting my parents for the week while my husband attends a grad school orientation class. Mom offered to make popovers for my birthday breakfast. Who could say no to that? “It’ll be just like Little Women!” I crowed.
Popovers all poofy and gorgeous, straight out of the oven.
And here’s Mom “stabbing” the popovers to release the air.
1. In life there are no do-overs. But there are in knitting. All the time! I started over on this Evenstar shawl five freaking times. And every few rows I find something that requires me to tink back a bit. I do this more with lace than with any other type of knitting. Is lace somehow the antithesis of life?
My Evenstar. Oh so many stitches to go.
