This month’s Instagram Challenge ( Declarations of Love !) is already underway, but last month’s just wrapped up, and today I’m excited to share the seriously impressive results! Before I present the finalists (and our winning three), I wanted to say how insanely talented you guys are.
Helloooooooo!!!!! Wow, thank you for all of your lovely comments on my last post… New Zealand is such a beautiful country and I do love sharing the special bits of it with some of the rest of the world! The crochet and knit community anyway!
Grandma Twinkle watching so near, you are my treasure my comforting dear... I miss you at Christmas most of all, but that's when your light shines brightest of all... As I can imagine there would be a lot of tutorials and ways of making Christmas Stars... This is just the way I do mine
This pattern could easily be made larger or smaller by changing the amount of rows to form the toe and the heel. Or by using a thicker yarn and a larger hook! It’s a really beautiful very quick pattern once you’ve mastered the crocodile stitch. Links to tutorials on the stitch provided on the blog!
Initially it can be difficult to get your head around the crocodile stitch but with the help of a couple of brilliant tutorials (linked to below) you can master it! And once you have you'll find that it's really quite easy and there'll be no stopping you! What is the crocodile crochet stitch?

I'm gearing up for a knitting retreat this weekend with four of my most favorite knitting girlfriends. I absolutely cannot wait for a whole weekend of uninterrupted knitting time with them. We always manage to cause a little trouble, but in a good way. To get ready, I've been scouring Ravelry and my pattern books for the perfect projects to work on.

This week, the staff at WEBS is buzzing about gifts! Amy designed the Love Monsters , a perfect Valentine’s Day knit; while Lise and Mary have been busy knitting for babies! Every February I am inspired to knit in pinks and reds to counteract the gray gloom of New England winters. Luckily, Valentine’s Day gives me the perfect opportunity! This year I couldn’t find anything that was inspiring me so I decided to make something myself.
So you are expecting a baby or know someone who is – here is a collection of baby sweater patterns that I think are lovely and you might want to get out your needles for. The lovely thing about knitting for babies/toddlers is that it doesn’t take very long to finish – such tiny things that knit up quickly.

the busyness of life, and knitting, and pattern writing has kept me away from the blog lately. i thought i'd just check in with a few things worth mentioning. first off, thanks for all the support in my attempt to quit smoking. so far, so good! i'm happy to say that it's day 84 today, which is a hell of a lot easier than days 1- 40-something, which were pretty sucky, honestly. it feels pretty normal to not smoke at this point, and i'm trying to not let the bit of weight gain get me down. a few weeks ago, i packed up a bunch of single skeins of yarn that i had accumulated through numerous trips to webs and the book swatching process and sent them off to robyn for her one hundred hats project . i know that over time the single balls tend to start taking over my stash, so it seemed like the perfect way to put them to good use. you can also help robyn by donating even a dollar to help with shipping 100 hats!
Oct The sweater is knit in two pieces. The main piece is knit up the back and down the front. A detachable front panel is knit with buttonholes on both sides.
