Linvilla Pullover Pint-Sized

Is it possible to have an Eggo Waffle hangover? Because I’m pretty sure I have one. Over the weekend, we had a nine-hour-long Stranger Things 2 marathon party, and we ate an embarrassing amount of waffles. I’m talking about bought-it-in-bulk-from-CostCo amount of embarrassing. I naively thought I’d have some left over for breakfast for the next month, but no. We went at them like it was our jobs. On the upside, my sugar high ensured that I made serious progress on my Christmas knitting.

But today isn’t about…

Currently Crushing On

Hello and good morning! How are you as we enter the final stretch of October? I was doing awesome. For the first time in my adult life, I managed to purchase Halloween candy for the trick-or-treaters a week in advance instead of scrambling to get it the day of, but now it turns out there was a reason why I wait until the last minute: my dear husband, who is currently laying in bed moaning, “Why did you let me do this to me?”

Normally, my husband is the responsible one in our relationship since I’m the hurricane of crazy.

Call for Testers: Linvilla Pullover Pint-Sized

Hiya, knitters! I’m here to interrupt your regularly scheduled Thursday with a call for testers. I know, you’re devastated. How dare I help you get one step closer to the weekend with a brilliant distraction. I apologize for inconveniencing all of the boring work things you had planned. What can I say, I’m an enabler.

The inappropriate nose-picker you see above, also known as Megan-Anne’s little photo spoiling daughter Mabel, wants you to knit a super cool Linvilla Pullover for your favorite pint-sized person. Actually, she probably doesn’t since she likes to be “The Special,” but that’s besides the point….

Homespun Yarn Party 2017

No joke, the Homespun Yarn Party is our favorite show of the year. Some people live for Rhinebeck, Vogue Knitting Live, or Maryland Sheep and Wool, which are all great events, but for us it’s the HYP. Held at the Historic Savage Mill in Maryland, which is great place to peruse even when it isn’t teeming with knitters and yarn, the HYP has an electric energy. Everyone is so excited to share their love of knitting, crochet, and spinning. Plus, the entry fee is free and so are the classes!

This year there was a line to get…

Gilmore Cast On Party

All right ladies, gentlemen, and fellow java junkies, this is what we’ve trained for. We’re all recovering from our turkey fueled coma’s and possibly have bags under our eyes from Black Friday shopping even though we promised ourselves that we wouldn’t feed the corporate beast encroaching on Thanksgiving, but then Aunt Jan passed that flyer our way and we were like, “Dear god, yes. I do need to drop everything and go stand in line to snag this super sweet deal.” But we can get through this. Together.

The time is now 3:01 AM EST. The Gilmore Girls revival is officially…

Gilmore Girls KAL

GILMORE GIRLS IS IN NINE DAYS. THIS IS NOT A DRILL.

At 3:01 (EST) in the morning on November 25th, the Gilmore Girls revival will debut on Netflix with four shiny new 90 minute episodes. That means we all get to enjoy six hours of fast-talking, caffeinated joy next Friday.

Megan-Anne and I are a part of Black Friday problem. (We can’t help it. Our mother raised us to be bloodthirsty for good deals.) So, our marathon won’t start at 3:01AM. Instead, we’re planning to kick it off at 3:01PM. That’s noon for those…

Hit Refresh

When people think about renewal they picture spring showers, sprouting daffodils, and fresh green grass. Generally, everything associated with Spring or maybe even the restart of the New Year. For me, it’s that start of the summer knitting season. It’s a time to put aside knitting or crocheting heavy blankets and sweaters in favor of smaller, lighter projects. Socks mostly, if you’re me. And I end up spending the majority of summer thinking about what I’ll make during the other three seasons. I even start making promises to myself as if it were January first:

I will finally knit a…
