Lots of us want to fill our project baskets with easy knit patterns, especially in the summertime. Occasionally, though, easy knitted patterns can sacrifice style: there's sometimes a lot of room between "easy" and "attractive." Not so in this new, free Ebook, Easy Knits From...

My first thought upon completing my first wet-felting project: "I am not ever going to arm-wrestle with Carol Huber Cypher. If she does felting projects all day long, that woman must have serious upper-arm strength." My second thought upon completing my first wet-felting project: "That...
A lot of you seemed intrigued by the idea of using needlefelting techniques to breathe new life into old wardrobe favorites! It's really easy, the tools are cheap (very!), and best of all, needlefelting, unlike, wet felting, can be done on almost any type of fabric. (Wet felting relies on the scales...

That drape is created by having lots of small holes between the yarn fibers—in general, the bigger the holes, the more drape something has. Think of the difference in drape between a felted...
Knitting Needle Knitting Bag The comments from Monday's post on knitting bags were a hoot! I feel so much better knowing that I am not alone in my knitting bag addiction. Bagaholics, bag ladies, and bag pigs (thank you, Merna S.!), unite! And what can we bag geeks say to Ms. Eliza, our friend who...
Too cute! The Knitting Needle Knitting Bag I'm beginning to think that I have a Serious Knitting Bag Habit, as I am getting dangerously close to having a different knitting bag for each UnFinished Object. This would not be a "Serious Knitting Bag Habit" if I only had one UFO (and thus only...
