The [Knits In] Podcast Episode 3

        As some of you may know, from last month or so until now I have been extremely busy studying and preparing for projects and finals. Well guess what? I'M ALL DONE! the semester is finally over (as of yesterday) and I could not be happier. I love school, don't get me wrong, but I was so ready for a break. I am taking summer classes but they are all online so I get to work from home using the wonderful new computer that my boyfriend custom built for me. Now that I have a computer that doesn't lag and freeze, I see myself being much more productive and active both here and on YouTube and I can't wait.

    Now that we've gotten all of that out of the way, here is episode 3 of my podcast. It's very short but I hope you enjoy it none the less:




Thanks For Watching!

The [Knits In] Podcast Episode 2



Hey guys!

So I totally forgot to post my second episode here! But oh well, after all, what better time to post it than the hour before upload the 3rd episode!

        Enjoy!

The [Knits In] Podcast Episode 1





                      Hello!

                   I am excited to invite you to watch my very first podcast. It's a little rough and I'm still                getting used to being in front of the camera but I hope you'll love it anyway. 

                    Let me know what you think!





The Last of The Wool: A Year of Stash Busting, Part 1

      As mentioned in an earlier post, I have made it a goal of mine to use up the remaining wool in my stash and replace it with high quality non animal fiber yarns #thelastofthewool. I made the decision to do so last year after seeing just how much of my crafting space the wool was taking up. This year was pretty successful for me as far as knitting goals go. My goals were to have more finished objects than the year before, To finish the projects that I start in a reasonable amount of time (rather than creating hoards of WIPs only to sit untouched for years then be frogged), and to make a dent in my vast and previously ignored wool yarn stash. I'm proud to say that this year I have finished more projects than any of the previous years, that most of them have been finished within a week or less, with the exception of a Lavender Kimono which took an ungodly amount of time to finish and literally led me to believe that the entire universe was against me finishing it (I'll have a post on that hopefully in the near future), and that I was able to put a large dent in my remaining wool stash.




  How did I make my goals this year with even less time to knit than I had before? All I can say is

DIY Baby Sock Blockers + Hiatus

    Hello again! It's been over a month since I've posted here. Did you miss me? During my time away I traveled, spent quality time with my family, got back into my exercise routine, and I came to a major realization. I could have easily lugged my laptop around with me, blogged about my experiences, and shared my adventures in car knitting, but I didn't. I was purposely avoiding the blog. My reason for doing so seems completely absurd to me now but at the time I needed to distance myself. 



The "Perfect" Baby Sock Pattern

      As some of you may know many of my closest friends and family seem to have caught the baby bug which means that as a knitter I'm left with no choice but to pick up my handy dandy needles and cast on. My favorite baby knits to give as gifts are baby socks, not only because they are quick and useful, but because they are mindless. They don't require much thought or attention which means that you can get through a pair or four while binge watching your favorite shows on Netflix... Or sitting at the park breathing in fresh air and enjoying the beauty of nature the way God intended. Your Choice.

My Marvelous Project Bag

          So far this year has been the year that I follow through with my promises to myself. I have been wanting to sew project bags to keep all of my WIP's and their notions neat and together but up until now I've either "Never had enough time" or "I just never felt like it". Well one morning I woke up (earlier than usual) and decided that I needed to just get up and do it, so I did.
