A late introduction: Twyla Pearl

Monday, December 3rd, 2012

I’ve been very absent from my old friend The Thrifty Knitter. My crazy year is finally winding down. This year, I survived a tornado, finished a book, grew and expelled a human person, and hosted Yarn School, Fiber School & Mitten School! Whew! The Tiny Boss (Twyla Pearl, born 9/13/12): If you’re a baby person, […]

Saturday, July 7th, 2012

This I’d really the first spinning I’ve done this year, so I’m pretty excited to get back in the saddle. My TdF teams: Stashbusters, Wicked Stitch, SCF/HY, and My Favorite Sheep. Because I like checking things off lits, my many TdF 2012 goals: Spin only from stash,whenever possible. Spin 5# of fiber. Spin some Yarn […]

Tour de Fleece, Day 1!

Saturday, June 30th, 2012

I feel like I’ve been underwater forever, working on my book. But I have to rest today, so I’m spinning in bed with my e-spinner and watching lots of TV on Netflix. Today, I made this: from this In other news, my book is all but done and it’s AWESOME. I’m really, really proud of […]

The post features Emma’s Carnaby skirt in several different ensembles, and also shows her modeling it as a capelet. The pictures were so darling I had to share: (Thanks to Kelly & Emma from Knitigating Circumstances for the […]

Time for a break!

Thursday, March 15th, 2012

It’s been a mad winter! Woolfest in January (I have to brag about my awesome booth that I totally neglected to photograph), then mass book knitting and a bit of photography, then a fucking TORNADO at the end of February that threw the town into chaos. Then I accidentally agreed to a bit more recovery […]

Happy New Year! See you at Woolfest!

Sunday, January 1st, 2012

My little reflective 2-day break was kind of a masterpiece of denial. I totally did not have any time to spare, and the holidays, as they do, sucked away even more time. I have been knitting and reknitting my ass off. I really need to work on being a more focused knitter. My method of […]

Fuck being all busy and stressed out. I’m taking a break.

Friday, December 16th, 2011

I am not a disciplined person. I get a hell of a lot done (though never as much as I want), but it’s not through solid planning or because I’m a real go-getter, but through a sort of frenzied, fearful, directionless will. I spend a lot of my time in an adrenaline-fueled blur. This would […]

I’m working on a new book!

Friday, October 14th, 2011

With all the hullabaloo of Fiber School (which was incredible–amazing group!) and hitting my first deadline and the new chickens and the new dog, I almost forgot to mention: I’m working on a new book with Wiley! I am VERY excited about this book. I’m also really excited about Wiley. Communication and feedback have been […]
