An Autumnal Palette to Enjoy

by erin on September 3, 2013

I love this time of year.  It’s still hot as fire out, muggy as the devil’s armpit (ew), but there are approximately 7 leaves out there starting to turn, and every now and then there’s a cold note in the wind (maybe it’s my heat exhaustion starting to kick in), and then there’s this:   […]

I love Dolly Parton

by erin on February 29, 2012

As Dolly Parton once put it, “I’m busier than a one-legged man in a butt-kickin’ contest.”  Does anyone remember what movie it was when she uttered that line?  Anyone??? Also, does anyone else remember how Sesame Street had a character named Polly Darton?  Coincidence…I think not! Anyhoo…take a gander at this: I was fortunate to […]


Blue Slip

by erin on February 14, 2012

  When I was younger, I would forget things quite a lot.  Important stuff in the kid world, actually.  Library books, homework for fourth grade (I did that one a lot), the dreaded “blue slips” that the missed homework required me to take home.  I forgot stuff all over the place.  It didn’t take much […]


The Game Is Afoot!

by erin on February 7, 2012

I swear the weather yesterday made me feel like I’d been transported to London…cold and dreary. If some fog had rolled in, I would have donned some tweed, pulled out a pipe, and released the hounds.  Today looks much nicer out. I’m boogying along, however, having done the heel flap and picking up the stitches along […]


Knit-Along Part One

by erin on January 31, 2012

How’s it going out there, peeps?  Are you having fun on the Relevé socks?  I admit, when I first saw the socks, I thought ‘oh boy, this is going to be so hard and I’m going to fail just trying to knit after the cuff ribbing is over.’  I’ve never knit anything other than straight vanilla […]


Drumroll, please….

by erin on January 17, 2012

Welcome to the first ever Great Yarns/Yarns Etc SOCK Knit-along!  It took lots of Ravelry window-shopping, blog comment reading, and an exciting seven coin tosses (like the World Series, to be fair) and, my friends, we not only know what article of clothing we are knitting, we also know what pattern we are knitting, and we […]


The Results Are In!

by erin on January 10, 2012

I was so pleased to see several comments from knitters after last week’s blog post.  It looks like we’re going to do a knit-along, folks!  I’m very excited, as it’s my first knit-along.  Details are still coming together, and in a day or two I will present the pattern we will be knitting, along with […]

A Choice And A Challenge

by erin on January 3, 2012

Is there anyone out there interested in shaking things up? With the coming of the new year, my mind is trying to rev in about four (or so) different directions at once, knitting wise.  Of course, none of this pertains to any of the knitting projects I currently have on needles.  So what if I […]
