A knitting we will GO!

My new favorite hobby! Knitting. Yep, as a quilter I went over to the “dark side.” But I’ve found, as all knitters before me, that it’s easy to work on knitting projects in the car, to stop and start them; which just isn’t the case with sewing.

My favorite designer is Elizabeth Smith (photo credit to her on the right!). I’ve made several of her patterns and they are all wonderful and have excellent directions and photos. I’ve made her Saturday Sleeves, Castaway Top, Summer Soundtrack Cowl….and I have her Summer Soundtrack Top and Poncheta in my queue.

The picture on the left is my version of her Summer Soundtrack Cowl. And I’m now working on her Summer Soundtrack Top because I liked the pattern no much. And no, I’m not an affiliate, I don’t know her personally, I just happen to like her designs: simple and modern. And because I’m a new knitter, I’ve found that her directions are clear and understandable.

If you are a knitter, happy knitting!

Calling All Knitters

Yes, I gone to the “dark side” and am now quilting and knitting. Who knew? But really I like the portability of knitting as I can easily bring projects with me in the car, on trips, etc. And after my last experience of forgetting my entire quilt project on a quilt retreat (who does that?), my knitting project saved the day as I had something to work on. Is it me, or do other people do silly things like that?

Eek!

Anyway, click on the image above to head to Craftsy and check out their Memorial Day sale items, and knitting classes.

Enjoy!

Craftsy is BACK!

And yes, as part of their giant library of classes, they do have some FREE CLASSES available!

It started out life as Craftsy a few years ago, then it became Bluprint, and now it’s Craftsy again! I’ve personally been a premium member of both for a couple years now and really enjoy all the classes. I can watch any class on their platform, so I go back and forth from cooking classes to quilting classes and now to knitting classes. Especially now that many of us are at home more often than not, it’s a great way to entertain yourself and have some fun.

I just re-upped my membership for another year as sourdough bread is my new challenge! What’s YOUR new thing?

So if you’re looking for something new to learn and do, check it out!
