knitting gauge To check gauge, cast on thirty to forty stitches using recommended needle size. Work in pattern stitch until piece measures at least 4" from cast-on edge. Remove swatch from needles or bind off loosely and lay swatch on flat surface. Place a ruler over swatch and count number of stitches across and number of rows down (including fractions of stitches and rows) in 4". Repeat two or three times on different areas of swatch to confirm measurements. If you have more stitches and rows than called for in instructions, use larger needles; if you have fewer, use smaller needles. Repeat until gauge is correct.

nother year has passed, and we are heading full force into 2017. Sometimes it feels like we need time to stop, if just for a moment, so we can catch our breath, look around us, and try to make sense of it all. We need just a moment to figure out how to productively

move forward. Unfortunately, we don’t have that option (not yet, anyway). Fortunately, I think I have an idea of what we can do. In 2017, we need to knit. Many non-knitters think that knitting is a solitary act, but you and I know that’s not the case. Knitters are not just individuals—we make up a strong and active community. Knitting is a means of connection, and connection is what we need most of all. I encourage you to remember that and take it with you this year. Start a knit night in your community that is accessible and welcoming to everyone. If some-

one takes an interest in your knitting in a public setting, offer to give him or her lessons. Teach o cchildren how to knit, and teach them how to teach other kids to knit. Donate handknit hats to yyour local homeless shelter or get a group together to knit for a cause and donate many things aat once. Use your knitting to empower folks within and outside of your community. Knitting is a rrelaxing pastime, but it can also be a powerful tool.

With that in mind, I hope this issue is a breath of fresh air for you as we roll out this new year. It is dedicated to women who work exceptionally hard day in and day out to get to where they want to be, whether that’s in the workplace or on a wild adventure. The Power Knits story (pages 20–35) evolved from a librarian-inspired theme into projects for women everywhere who are working their way to the top. On the fl ip side, the Wild Desert story (pages 42–55) is for the wild child inside of every woman—the rebel that emerges when she doesn’t have to perform or impress anyone in a suit, when she can totally be herself. Also in this issue, you’ll fi nd a special article about the knitter behind the handknit garments of the popular Hulu series The Mindy Project, Krista Ann of KnitsyKnits (page 12). In the show, Mindy Kaling plays Mindy Lahiri, a sassy young doctor whose personal life is colorfully chaotic. Catch up on the fi rst half of season 5, streaming now on Hulu (the second half begins in April 2017!). Look out for the bright red matching vest and skirt Mindy wears—the patterns are included in this issue! In the latest installment of Pattern Play, Kate Atherley explains the term “at the same time” and what that means in knitting patterns. Knitwear designer and teacher Sarah Solomon explains essential increases and what those look like in order to help you understand their differences and when it’s best to use them. Plus, we take a look inside the upcoming Interweave book Knitting Short Rows by regular Interweave contributor Jennifer Dassau and have a conversation with Ann Weil of Flax & Twine and arm-knitting fame.

Let’s get to work.

PATTERN PLAY

At the Same Time Multitasking in knitting patterns Kate Atherley

Photo by Garrett Evans

At the same time: These four words sometimes appear in knitting patterns, and they can seem a bit daunting. But dealing with them doesn’t have to be difficult as long as you are prepared and know what to do when you encounter them.

A designer uses the expression “at the same time” to alert the knitter that two or more things are going to take place simultaneously—you know, at the same time! Although designers know that knitters don’t love these instructions, they can’t always be avoided. Recipes often use similar instructions; for example, a recipe may tell you to heat up the sauce while the pasta is cooking. In this case, the instruction might say: “Cook the pasta in boiling water for 8 minutes; at the same time, heat the sauce.” You do them together so that the pasta isn’t cold and gummy when the sauce is hot, and everything is ready as fast as possible. In knitting patterns, this expression is commonly found in garment patterns where the individual pieces of the garment aren’t symmetrical, and you have to work a different set of shaping instructions on each side. Let’s take, for example, the left front of a cardigan where the neckline shaping on one side is started while the armhole shaping on the other side is still in progress. The schematic below shows that the armhole shaping begins when the front measures 15" from the cast-on and extends over 4" in length. The front neck shaping begins when

Rep neck dec row every 4th row 5 (3, 4, 6, 5, 7) more times, then every RS row 6 (11, 10, 7, 10, 7) times—18 sts rem when all raglan and neck shaping is complete.


the front measures 17" from the cast-on, or 2" above the beginning of the armhole, and extends for 3¼". The two shaping sections overlap by 2". The area shown in red indicates the first 2" where the armhole shaping alone occurs. The blue area indicates the final 2" of the armhole shaping and the first 2" of the neck shaping. The green area indicates the final 1¼" where the final neck decreases are worked. To see how this shaping would be presented in knitting instructions, we’ll assign a standard gauge of five stitches and seven rows to 1". The cardigan front has forty-nine stitches before any shaping has been worked, and we’ll end up with twenty stitches at the shoulder when all the shaping is complete. After the initial 15", the instructions continue as follows: Note: Neck shaping beg before armhole shaping ends; read the foll section all the way through before proceeding. Shape armhole: Next row (RS) BO 5 sts, work to end—44 sts rem. Work 1 WS row even. Armhole dec row (RS) K1, ssk, knit to end—1 armhole st dec’d. Rep armhole dec row every RS row 12 more times. At the same time, when armhole measures 2", ending with a WS row, shape neck as foll: Neck dec row (RS) Work to last 3 sts, k2tog, k1—1 neck st dec’d. Rep neck dec row every RS row 10 more times—20 sts rem when all armhole and neck shaping is complete. Work even until armhole measures . . .

The note at the beginning of the section lets you know those four key words, “at the same time,” are coming. (Not every publication includes this type of warning, but at knitscene we like to make sure our knitters are prepared!). In an “at the same time” situation, there are two things to look for: the “what” and the “when.” In this case, the “what” is the armhole and neck shaping, and the “when” is a length instruction. This means that as you’re working the repeats of the armhole decreases, you need to keep track of how far you’ve worked so that you won’t go past the point where the neck shaping needs to start. If you complete the armhole shaping before working the first neck decrease, you have gone too far, and you’ll need to rip out a few rows. Sometimes, instead of a length measurement, the “when” tells you to look for a certain stitch count or to keep track of the number of rows worked. No matter what it is, just pay attention to that trigger point—that’s when you have to start doing the second thing.

If you’re working this particular pattern, measure as you go, and as soon as you hit the 2", write down how many of those thirteen armhole decreases you have completed. As you add in the neckline shaping, keep doing the armhole decreases until you hit the required number. Once you’ve figured out the “when,” you need to look for the second instruction you have to add in. In the case of our cardigan front, we have to start working neck decreases at the opposite end of the right-side rows. You’ve been working the armhole shaping for 2" (the area marked in red on the schematic), and let’s say you’ve done six of the required thirteen decreases (the original plus twelve more), so you’ve got seven left to go. This means that your right-side rows should now be worked as follows: K1, ssk, knit to last 3 sts, k2tog, k1—2 sts dec’d: 1 st each at armhole and neck edge. You’ll then work this decrease row until you’ve completed the seven remaining armhole decreases and seven out of eleven neck decreases (the area marked in blue on the schematic). From there, you’ll only work decreases on the neckline side until all eleven of those decreases (the initial seven, plus four more) have been worked (the area marked in green on the schematic). So now the right-side rows are worked as follows: Knit to last 3 sts, k2tog, k1—1 neck st dec’d. When those are done, check your stitch count and then “work even”—that is, no more decreases on either side. The example I give here is pretty cut-and-dried because we’re focusing on a single size. Although it would have made the pattern a bit longer, the designer could have written out each of the three different “phases”—armhole shaping only, armhole and neck shaping, neck shaping—as its own distinct set of instructions. However, it gets significantly more complicated when there are multiple sizes with different lengths and a different number of repeats. If a pattern has five sizes, that’s five different combinations of row repeats, each with the neckline shaping possibly starting at a different point in relation to the armhole shaping. Writing it out in detail gets challenging for the designer and tech editor and takes up a lot of space. So although it might seem like the designer is just trying to take a shortcut, sometimes “at the same time” is the best way to deal with a set of compound instructions. I recommend that you scan through a pattern before you start working on it. You don’t have to read the whole thing in great detail—and indeed, some of it probably won’t make sense until the knitting is in your hands—but it’s a good idea to know that things like “at the same time” are coming up. When I’m working on a pattern and I see that phrase, I always underline it to make sure I keep it in mind. No matter how this instruction is used or what sort of pattern it appears in, the process is the same: Always read ahead to make sure you know it’s coming, and look for the “what” (the different sets of instructions) and the “when” (the trigger points). As long as you keep notes on what you’re doing, you’ll be fine!

BOOK TALK

Knitting Short Rows Techniques for Great Shapes & Angles by Jennifer Dassau; published by Interweave; released November 2016; $24.99 Reviewed by Sara Dudek

Jennifer Dassau brings her knowledge of fashion production to this new book from Interweave. Known for her unique and wearable designs, Jennifer breaks down short-row techniques for knitters of all skill levels. Short-rows are the key to creating dynamic knits with interesting shape and fit; they allow you to create curves, angles, and dimensionality in your garments. Knitting Short Rows will help you master this knitting technique through a discussion of five short-row methods. Seventeen beautifully wearable knitting patterns let you practice your new skills. The book begins by describing exactly what short-rows are and how they are

used in knitting patterns. It then launches into five short-row methods, with a separate chapter devoted to each: wrap and turn, yarnover, German, Japanese, and twin-stitch. Jennifer begins each chapter with a detailed description of the shortrow technique and includes illustrations that walk you through the process step by step for both knit and purl rows. She then discusses the method’s special considerations—when its use is most appropriate, how to achieve a specific look, how it looks in different stitch patterns, how to work in the round, and so on. Stylish patterns accompany each method. Before diving into the five techniques listed above, work the simplest of shortrows (all you need to do is turn!) with the Earlappe Hat, worked in an Aranweight yarn. Practice the wrap-and-turn method in the fashionable Curve Wrap Cardi pattern, worked sideways with afterthought sleeves.

d o o w y l l o H The Mindy Knitting Project By Krista Ann of KnitsyKnits Instagram: @KnitsyKnits Ravelry: KnitsyKnits

When people ask me what I do for a living, I really don’t know what to tell them. I guess you could say I’m a professional knitter, but even I know how silly that sounds. I’m a teacher and a designer, but the bulk of my income comes from cranking out knitted pieces for Hollywood. Photos courtesy of Hulu

www.inter weave.com


Hollywood is a fast-paced place where everything needs to be done yesterday. When I am hired for a job, I don’t have very much time to shop for yarn, design the piece, and knit every single stitch by hand. I’ve lost track of how many all-nighters I have pulled over the past year, but I do what needs to be done to meet my deadlines! I know it’s crazy, but I’m a one-woman show. From the initial meeting with the costume designer to the delivery of the fi nal pieces (and sometimes the alterations), it’s all me. Friends keep telling me that I need to hire some help, but I love the entire process. And it’s possible that I am a bit of a perfectionist. I met Salvador Perez—costume designer for The Mindy Project and Pitch Perfect and president of the Costume Designers Guild—at a convention in November 2014. It was a brief encounter, but one that would change the direction of my career. Nearly a year after our fi rst meeting, Salvador invited me to his office in the Universal Studios backlot to discuss hiring me to do some knitting for Mindy Kaling’s wardrobe on Hulu’s The Mindy Project. I left the lot with three pieces from Mindy’s wardrobe to use as templates and a list of colors to start swatching with. Salvador told me that the brighter and more “clashy” the colors, the better, which suited me just fi ne; I love working with vibrant Krista’s proposal to costume designer Salvador Perez

colors! I drove straight to the yarn store and bought the brightest merino fi ngering yarn I could fi nd, knit up eight swatches, and sent them over to Salvador’s office. I got a call from him a few days later: He was ecstatic about the colors and stitch patterns. He placed an order over the phone for six pieces (two skirts with matching vests and two additional vests). I had two months to knit six pieces on size 1 needles—no problem! Gulp. It takes me a couple of days to design and knit the back of a vest or skirt and two or three days to knit the front, depending on the colorwork or texture. The hems and fi nishing also take a few days, especially because I block the heck out of each piece! When I design, I write the pattern as I go. I calculate gauge and my cast-on number, but that is the only math I do before I begin knitting. I trace the wardrobe pieces onto poster board and use the tracings as my pattern templates. I typically knit about two inches and then compare that to my pattern to be sure that the piece is following the shape of the template. The key to knitting for someone who isn’t readily available to try on the garment as you go is to create the piece so that if alterations need to be made, they don’t require re-knitting the entire piece. I prefer to knit in the round and keep everything seamless, but because there is no way to add or subtract fabric to a piece that has no seams, I knit the fronts and backs separately in case I need to change the width. The fi rst skirts I knit

for Mindy followed this idea. These two skirts were completely knit and fi nished before I had a chance to try them on her. Rather than knitting them in the round, I knit them in panels so that if I needed to add or subtract any fabric, I would only need to take out one panel and re-knit it, rather than re-knitting the entire skirt. (After I had a better understanding of Mindy’s size and preferred fit, I began knitting pieces in the round.) Most of the time I just drop off the pieces, and if any alterations are needed, I pick them up and adjust accordingly. Some pieces, however, need to be tried on mid-knitting, so I arrange a time to meet with Mindy at the studio and try it on her (usually with balls of yarn hanging off every end!). Unless a picture of the piece is posted during fi lming, I don’t get to see how it looks on Mindy. I usually don’t even know when she will be wearing it until the episode airs on Hulu. It’s exciting to watch an episode and see one of my pieces pop up on the screen! Between Salvador’s amazing talents and Mindy’s ability to look stunning in everything, I’m always so impressed at how perfectly the outfits come together! My favorite thing about my job is that every project is different. I work really well under pressure and tight deadlines, so this is the perfect job for me. I had dreamed of turning my knitting hobby into a business for years, and now that it is a reality, I’m thrilled to knit ninety-plus hours a week just so I don’t have to work a forty-hour desk job!

RED SKIRT AND VEST

YOUNGBLOOD VEST

(From episode pictured on page 12) When I fi rst met Mindy, we talked about colors she loved and what knits she envisioned. She wanted something knit in fi re engine red, which happens to be one of my favorite colors! But fi nding the perfect red wasn’t easy. Many reds have a heavy orange base; I wanted a blue-based red. I was on the hunt for that perfect red at Stitches West in Santa Clara, California, when I found exactly what I was looking for in the Anzula booth: the colorway 1 Red Shoe. Salvador likes cables, so I sketched out an asymmetric cabled vest and a matching skirt with a cable around the hem. I wanted to keep the full cable up through the neck shaping on the vest, but unfortunately I had to re-knit the neck because it was too tight, and a little of the cable was compromised. Knitting is all about math, and sometimes the numbers just don’t add up. The end result—the Youngblood Vest (and accompanying Outlaws Skirt)—was something we were all happy with, and that red was just perfect for Mindy.

Notes • The front and the back are knit separately and joined at the shoulders. The back is knit in stockinette stitch and the front is reverse stockinette stitch. They are then seamed at the sides and stitches are picked up from the cast-on edges to work ribbing in the round for the bottom hem. The neck and armhole ribbing is also done after the pieces have been joined. No shaping should be made on the two edge stitches—all shaping is created on the third stitch from each end.

OUTLAWS SKIRT inspired by Green Day

Materials • Approximately 3–5 skeins of Anzula Squishy in 1 Red Shoe, depending on your measurements and length desired 80% superwash merino, 10% cashmere, 10% nylon • US 00 24" circular needle • (2) US 1 24" circular needles • Stitch markers • 2 cable needles • Scrap yarn for provisional cast on • Tapestry needle • Elastic for waistband (optional)

Gauge

Work chart repeats until piece measures your measurement A. Pull out provisional CO and put stitches onto second needle and placing the public sides of fabric together being careful to not have any twists in the loop. Work three-needle bind off to create a loop of fabric. Multiply your measurement A by 8 (unless you have a different stitch gauge). For example, if your measurement A is 36 inches and your gauge is 8 stitches to an inch, then you would evenly pick up 288 stitches (36 multiplied by 8 equals 288) around the loop. This number will be referred to as your “measurement A stitches.”

Bottom Garter Hem Using smaller needle and starting where your seam is, pick up your measurement A stitches around one edge of the loop (does not matter which edge you pick up on). Working in the round, create the bottom hem: Round 1: Purl Round 2: Knit

32 sts = 4 inches in stockinette stitch on larger needle

Work last 2 rounds a total of 5 times. Bind off loosely in purl.

Finished Measurements

Using larger needle and starting where your seam is, pick up your measurement A stitches as you did for the hem and work in the round in st. st. (knit every round) until your entire piece measures 2 inches short of measurement B. Bind off loosely.

You will be taking your own measurements for this piece. You will take your hip circumference measurement at the widest point (measurement A) and the measurement you want for the length of your skirt (measurement B). (See schematic.)

Abbreviations pm – place marker slm – slip marker cn – cable needle st. st. – stockinette stitch

Using smaller needle, pick up your measurement A stitches along bind off edge. Working in the round, knit until waistband measures 2 inches from the most recent bind off/pick up round. Purl 1 round. Knit another 2 inches. Bind off all stitches. Fold the waistband over at the purl round and whipstitch your waistband down. You may choose to put elastic in the waistband if you want. Block piece and enjoy!

Notes

f 2”

• Cable part of skirt is knit back and forth in a strip that is seamed together with a three-needle bind off to create a loop of fabric. Garter hem is picked up from one side of the loop and the rest of the skirt is knit from the bottom up on the other side of the fabric loop. No shaping is made in the skirt for the waist. Waist cinching is that is folded over and seamed.

Six Essential

s e s a e i n cr

every knitter should know Sarah Solomon

Understanding increases is a vital part of any knitter’s education. Learning what each type of increase looks like and how it functions within a fabric can improve your ability to read your knitting, help you understand the intentions of the designer, and make it easier for you to make your own decisions when knitting a project. In this article, we will look at the most common types of increases and how to plan the placement of increases in your project. Just as decreases can lean to the right or the left, increases can also have a right and left slant. Thus, it is possible to work increases on each edge of a piece in mirrored pairs. The swatches in this article demonstrate how increases can be worked on each side of a garment. Instructions are provided for working each swatch and each increase.

1. YARNOVER INCREASE Perhaps the simplest way to add stitches to your knitting is by working a yarnover. The yarnover increase is worked by wrapping the yarn over the right needle between two stitches. This method produces a small hole, or eyelet, in the knitting, so it’s most commonly used in lace patterns, where holes are desirable, or in patterns where the eyelet has a decorative effect. The yarnover increase doesn’t have a slant to it, so the same method can be used at both the right and left edges. Inc row (RS) K2, yo, knit to last 2 sts, yo, k2—2 sts inc’d. Next row (WS) K2, purl to last 2 sts, k2. Rep Rows 1 and 2.

YARNOVER (YO)

Wrap the yarn around the right needle from front ont to back.

SWATCH 1


2. TWISTED YARNOVER INCREASE SE The twisted yarnover method is a variation of the yarnover increase. It is formed by making a yarnover (or a backward yarnover) on the row requiring the increase and d then twisting the yarnover on the following row to close the hole. Purling a backward yarnover through the front loop (tflfl)) will give it a right slant; purling a regular yarnover through thee back loop (tbl) will give it a left slant. Inc row (RS) K2, yo, knit to last 2 sts, s, byo, k2—2 sts inc’d. Next row (WS) K2, p1tfl, purl to last st 3 sts, p1tbl, k2. Rep Rows 1 and 2.

SWATCH 2

3. LOOP CAST-ON Another method for creating mirrored increases is the loop cast-on (CO). (This technique can also be used to cast on stitches at the beginning of a row or for a buttonhole.) Because it uses less yarn than the yarnover method, it produces less space between the stitches. Swatch 3 shows the loop cast-on made on a right-side row within a two-stitch garter-stitch border with the slants leaning in the direction of the growing fabric.

SWATCH 3

BACKWARD YARNOVER (BYO)

Inc row (RS) K2, right-slanting loop CO, knit to last 2 sts, left-slanting loop CO, k2—2 sts inc’d. Next row (WS) K2, p1tfl, purl to last 3 sts, p1tbl, k2. Rep Rows 1 and 2.

RIGHT-SLANTING (BACKWARD) LOOP CO

*Loop working yarn as shown and place it on needle backward (with right leg of loop in back of needle). Repeat from *.

LEFT-SLANTING LOOP CO Wrap the yarn around the right needle from back to front to back again.

*Loop working yarn as shown and place it on needle so right leg of loop is in front of needle. Repeat from *.

KNIT INTO FRONT AND BACK (K1F&B)

4. KNIT INTO FRONT AND BACK Other approaches to increasing involve working into the same stitch more than once. This is most commonly done by knitting into the front leg and then the back leg of the same stitch (k1f&b). This method forms a horizontal bar at the base of the new stitch created (for this reason, it is sometimes referred to as the bar increase). Because the bar falls to the left of the increase, the best way to keep the increases symmetrical when working the increases in pairs is to work the last k1f&b one stitch farther in from the edge than the one at the beginning of the row. This will keep the bar the same distance from the edge on each side. In Swatch 4, the fi rst increase is worked two stitches from the edge and the second increase is worked three stitches from the edge. Inc row (RS) K2, k1f&b, knit to last 4 sts, k1f&b, k3—2 sts inc’d. Next row (WS) K2, purl to last 2 sts, k2. Rep Rows 1 and 2.

Knit into a stitch and leave it on the needle (Figure 1). Knit through the back loop of the same stitch (Figure 2). Slip both stitches off the needle (Figure 3).

LEFT LIFTED INCREASE (LLI)

5. LIFTED INCREASE

Figure 1

The lifted method also creates a new stitch out of a stitch in the previous row. Swatch 5 is worked with a right lifted increase (RLI) at the beginning of the row and a left lifted increase (LLI) at the end of the row. Inc row (RS) K2, RLI, knit to last 2 sts, LLI, k2—2 sts inc’d. Next row (WS) K2, purl to last 2 sts, k2. Rep Rows 1 and 2.

SWATCH 6a

6. MAKE ONE INCREASE The make one increase (M1) forms a new stitch by working into the running thread between two existing stitches. You can determine which way the increase will slant by twisting the running thread a certain way when you work it, resulting in a make one left (M1L) or a make one right (M1R). Swatches 6a and 6b show increases worked every right-side row inside a twostitch garter-stitch border. Swatch 6a uses M1R at the beginning of the row and M1L at the end so that the increases slant in the same direction as the growing fabric edge. Swatch 6b uses M1L at the beginning of the row and M1R at the end to slant the increases in opposition to the fabric edge. Inc row (RS) K2, M1R, knit to last 2 sts, M1L, k2—2 sts inc’d. Next row (WS) K2, purl to last 2 sts, k2. Rep Rows 1 and 2. Inc row (RS) K2, M1L, knit to last 2 sts, M1R, k2—2 sts inc’d. Next row (WS) K2, purl to last 2 sts, k2. Rep Rows 1 and 2.

Knowing the basic differences between these increasing methods can come in handy when working with different yarn or different textures. Every yarn shows an increase differently, and sometimes you can be surprised by which increase method is the least obtrusive. Often, the increase that produces the smallest hole in the knitting is the most invisible. Make one increases usually produce the tightest result because you are using yarn from the running thread between the stitches, though depending on the fabric, this tightness can make it more or less noticeable. The lifted increase is slightly more relaxed than other methods and is often regarded as the most invisible. Tighter is not always better; if the texture of the fabric is already very dense, you may fi nd the increases easier to work and just as invisible if you use a method that produces a looser result. Then again, if you want to use the increase as a decorative element, you may choose another method entirely. As ever, try them out for yourself and see.

Ease into knitting sweaters, seamlessly! Through clever planning and some simple techniques, projects are shaped and joined during knitting—all without sacrificing the pretty details. No-Sew Knits offers 20 garments that combine easy construction techniques and on-trend comfortable styling for everyday wear. While many sweaters are based on simple raglan and yoke constructions, author Kristen takes the opportunity to introduce you to a variety of other easier-than-they-seem techniques, while keeping the patterns approachable for advanced beginners. Chapters are focused around the elements of stitch patterns, cables, and lace. The resulting pieces are beautifully constructed garments that boast eyecatching details!

Flax & Twine Anne Weil helps us indulge in the handmade life with her creative blog (www.flaxandtwine.com). Her howtos demonstrate all kinds of knitting techniques, from arm knitting to crafty DIYs; you’ll always come away from her blog feeling inspired to create!

Q A Q A

How long have you been blogging? H I began b blogging in 2010. My blog became my full-time work in 2013. What inspired you to start a blog? W Ab About A six years ago, I realized how much I was craving and missing creativity in my life. I started looking at what brought me joy: making things, seeing, using my hands, creating something beautiful from nothing. I realized how incredibly visual I am and how doing these things gives my body a visceral hum of joy. To fi nd more creative bliss in my life, I started writing Flax & Twine as a mechanism to carve more time out of my busy family life for making—a weekly requirement. I fell in love with the whole process of blogging: designing, making, photographing, teaching, and sharing it all beautifully. These things bring me the joy I sought.

My blog covers what I like to call a handM made lifestyle. I love to knit, crochet, weave, embroider, and craft.

unique and so very luscious all at the same time. I loved sharing such an original project with my audience.

Q

I love lo l Purl Soho’s blog because the aesthetic and style of their brand is so similar to mine. Also, they share a wide range of crafts. Their new projects always bring me excitement and that joy of fresh inspiration and beauty. Purl Soho shares the colors and textures of materials and simple design in such a gorgeous way; it always makes me happy.
