So much to tell you...

Well, when it rains it pours and since I checked in here last I have lots to tell you about!

***I did an interview with Allegra of Petite Purls for the Renaissance Mom series on their blog.  Grab a cuppa tea (or coffee) and sit down with us for a spell.  It even includes some pics of my family!!!

***I am SO EXCITED to have been invited to teach at the Loopy Ewe Spring Fling.  Sign-ups are open until Dec 22nd when the lottery will take place.  I'll be teaching along side Anne, Kirsten, and JC... the whole weekend is sure to be a blast.   I cannot wait to meet Sheri and her elves in St. Louis this April!  

***This weekend I taught 3fer at The Yarn Spot in Wheaton, Maryland as part of their one year anniversary celebration. The class went wonderfully. I've got a few new converts to working with beads... one of my favorite obsessions to share! Some of my students even came wearing their recently finished Undulating Waves
***I've been SUPER busy with some holiday knitting I'll be sharing with you over the next week or two as I begin to gift all the handknits to their proper owners... above is the first of them. Meet Monkey Sauce, made for Chunky Monkey Sauce for her first Birthday. I LOVED knitting this guy, he worked up super quickly... I was worried he'd be finicky to finish off but seaming him up was painless. I love the way the perfectly placed short rows shaped his monkey mouth and nose.  I used this pattern by Sarah Gasson and am proud to say I didn't modify it at all!


  1. Great interview on Petite Purls and its always interesting to hear about your knitting adventures.

  2. That monkey it too cute! Fantastic interview, dear Laura. I always love reading about you. Your saying more "yeses" was a good parenting reminder.
