I took my #knittingmachine for a spin last night. All was going well with the skip stitch and tuck stitch practice and then I messed up and had to take it all off. Such fun though! Going to frog this and keep on practicing. #machineknitting #practicemakesperfect #knittersofinstagram #knitstagram #machineknittersofinstagram
I was honored to meet the #craftivist Sarah Corbett of @craftivists at the maker faire today. Sadly, I didn't plan my time well enough and am volunteering during her workshop. I'm now taking a microbreak under a tree and will read her book for a bit. Come say hi and learn to knit or crochet (or cross stitch, needlepoint, or spinning) at the #needleartszone. I'll be there from 3-6.
Come visit me at the maker faire! I'll be teaching knitting and crochet today until 5 and tomorrow from 3-6. #makerfaire #learntoknit #learntocrochet #needleartszone
In this world if Amazon and such, I almost forgot the pleasure of going to the library. I had a Matilda moment - you mean I can take home whatever book I would like? Also, trying to buck up for a big project! My second sweater! Usually I design my own stuff, but I need to call in the experts here. Also, do any of you have recommendations on good books to check out? #library #sweaterknitting #whichdoichoose #knittersofinstagram #magicoftidyingup #magicoftidying #thelifechangingmagicoftidyingup
A week ago, Valeria learned to knit and made it a few rows successfully under my supervision. I had her take her project home and assured her she would make mistakes, but just keep going. Isn't this beautiful, mistakes and all! #proudteachermoment #knitting #knittingclub #volunteering #volunteerknittingteacher #knittingoutreach #knitstagram #firstknittingproject
Decided to give this #workfromhome thing a try. I'm distracted by thoughts of all the projects I'd like to do in my house (such as improving the knit cover for this ottoman that I made out of cardboard boxes), but I'm making some serious progress! . #matlab #ottomandiy #heidithebiologist
