Inspiration Just Got Delivered

by erin on February 23, 2016

This is a blah day.  It’s cold, rainy, dreary, and it’s like winter is being really codependent with Chapel Hill and isn’t willing to surrender to the inevitability of spring.  It’s a good day to wear a warm knit like…this wrap!     This is a modified version of Carolyn Kinghorn’s I Want That Wrap, […]

News of the Knitting World, US Edition

by erin on July 22, 2014

Thank you for tuning in today, folks.  It’s a bit of a mash-up between News of the Weird, NPR, CNN, and Reefer Madness.   Let me explain.   Wait, there is too much.  Le’me sum up. (Can anyone name that quote?)   Someone took a beautiful, knitterly stand in Vermont just prior to Independence Day when five […]


A Chicken, Kittens, and Mittens

by erin on September 24, 2013

There are times in my life where I’m convinced that Groucho Marx is running things here on Earth from his place in the heavens.  I can usually “find the funny” in almost every situation, and then there are times where I am stunned by the ridiculously random way things fall into my lap…   or […]


Where Did The Week Go?

by erin on August 6, 2013

Normally, I am a contented woman after posting to the blog.  It’s a satisfying thing to check off my to-do list, and I love doing it.  In addition to this, I know I have a week to knit and work on the next thing in order to take pictures and post a new blog post […]


I Just Can’t Fight This Feeling Anymore….     I’ve forgotten what I started fighting for….     It’s time to bring this knit into the fore(ground)     And throw it on the bed, forever!   Thank you, REO Speedwagon, for putting into words what I could not with regards to this epic blanket. […]


Showin’ And Tellin’

by erin on April 2, 2013

  There are so many pictures in this blog post that I am really hoping none of you out there have dial-up.  Be prepared for quite the show-and-tell.   I paid my usual visit to my most favorite, hallowed, lovely place on earth (also known as the LYS) and got whacked fully in the face […]


Some Hits and Maybe A Miss

by erin on March 26, 2013

I am so OVER this weather!!!   Ahem.   Ok.  Sorry.  Just had to get that out there.  I figure I’m not the only one, right?  I like fall and winter, I really do.  It’s when this knitter in the South gets to shine.  The rest of the  year, especially during that soupy, steamy season […]


For The Knitter You Love

by erin on December 11, 2012

I’m going to start by saying that I abso-freakin’-lutely loved getting the comments on my last blog post.  Seriously thank you for throwing comments my way.  I know the blog gets read, but when someone comments, it throws a bone this doggie’s way and this doggie says thank yooooooou!   Ok.  Horrible joke there, what […]


It Is On Like Donkey Kong

by erin on November 27, 2012

Did you all have a nice Thanksgiving?   We sure did.  My son wanted to help in the kitchen, which was very cute and hilarious, since the chopped onions nearby were really bothering him.  He came up with a solution.   Those are my husband’s chemistry lab goggles.  He dug them out of wherever they […]

We have so much going on this weekend around town!  You all know that there’s a Yarn Crawl going on in the area–with such beautiful weather, with a bit of a nip in the air, you know you need to lay in supplies for the fall and winter.   Also, there is a charming little […]

Springtime and Colors and Fibers Galore!

by erin on March 13, 2012

Oh, this time of year is delightful, isn’t it?  It’s like I didn’t realize how starved I was for spring weather until it arrives.  The Bradford Pear trees are blooming, the forsythia is brilliantly yellow, and the daffodils are always a welcome sight.  Tomorrow I hear the high will be 80!!  I’m always glad for […]

Once upon a time, a prince fell in love with a girl. And married her. And the entire world went nuts about them.  Just lost their frickin’ minds.  They couldn’t get enough of them, seeing them together, separately, clubbing, brushing their teeth, whatever.  And not just the normal folks.  Knitters went nutsy foo-foo as well.  […]

Yeah, like I’ve never given into that temptation before! We have patterns from; Bekah Knits, Knit and Tonic, Coco Knits, White Lies Designs, Kate Jackson Knits and […]
