Sitting down to start this blog post kind of blows my mind away. Why? Well, it’s the last one of 2017. I don’t know about you, but this year flew by very fast. So much happened for me as I’m sure it did for you, too. For me, I focused on improving my Etsy store … More Look Back, Move Forward
I almost titled this post “The Case of the Accidental Purchase”. While at Vogue Knitting Live Seattle this year I saw the new drift wood knitting needles from Lykke that have been all over fiber lover social media. The pictures I saw did not do the sets justice. I loved the driftwood and thought those … More Just Lykke Eye Candy

Why K.A.A.K. ? YouTube, Etsy and all viral social media posts: I Blame You. I blame you … More K.A.A.K.

I make a lot of things – most of which I never take pictures of. I’m not sure if that is a good or bad thing. I think it’s a sure sign of how frantically I move on to the next project. It happens when I am just having a simple project to keep me … More Case of the Disappearing Knits
I have two things that I really don’t knit to sell: boot cuffs and Seahawk related items. I don’t make many of these because they both saturate the market here in the Seattle area.
