The original


My niece just got an American Girl Doll for her 5th birthday. I’m thinking of doing a matching set for her and her doll. Have you done this? Any ideas for me?


Crafty Adventures
Project Life
  • I’ve been using a collage app on my iPhone to put 2 Instagram pics on a 4×6 print
Bullet Journaling


Mothers’ Day Projects


From the Armchair
I’m trying a new organizational system- putting my circular needles in a plain ziploc bag. Writing in Sharpie the needle size. Then when I pack up a project bag with the yarn and needles, I put the ball band in the now empty ziploc bag so that I don’t lose the ball band (in case I don’t enter the project/yarn info into Ravelry right away). Then when I finish the project I put the needles back in the baggie and I know what size they are and they don’t end up in a pile.


Saturday May 10 (and Sunday)  Deerfield Fairgrounds in Deerfield, NH
planning to go Saturday with my niece Emelyn!


Emelyn is looking forward to knitting a bean bag out of the book I got her for Christmas – Kids Knitting: Project for Kids of All Ages by Melanie Falick

Close Knit Family
I recorded some audio with my niece Riley in March to catch up with her about her knitting and to see if she has any advice for young knitters.
