craft.girl: Pin Curls

I asked the incredibly talented and stylish Lindsay Jarvis, who designed the cover headband for craft.girl, to talk a little bit about her pin curl tutorial in the issue. Lindsay’s hair is always a beautiful work of art, and it was so much fun to learn about how she achieves her signature style. Lindsay says: So, why…

Let’s Get Crafty!

I was on vacation last week, and it turned out to be a crafty few days. One of my friends has twin 9-year-olds, and we had so much fun knitting (their Gram had recently taught them how) and coloring. I really love coloring. I always have, and now that it’s the “new thing” for adults,…

It’s here! Fall knit.purl is here!

I so look forward to getting each issue of knit.purl. The classic, modern designs never disappoint; there are always one or two patterns that immediately go to the top of my queue. In this new fall issue, it’s got to be the Quick Wind Pullover by Corinna Ferguson. The drop-stitch and cable pattern is so…

May we please introduce…craft.girl!

Kit Kinseth and I cooked up an idea last summer that actually became a thing, a real thing, a magazine thing. What started as a conversation at a cookout, as a “wouldn’t-it-be-cool-if?” kind of thing, has turned into a magazine we are so incredibly excited to share with you. We noticed Interweave needed more beginner content…

Fall, Time to Learn Brioche

I can’t believe how quickly this summer has flown by. Yes, we still have a few more weeks of no school and pool time and fireflies (well, not in Colorado, but in other places!), but it’ll be time for new pencils and notebooks and cooler weather before we know it. Fall has always been my favorite…
