Delinquent

I know, I know: shame on me. I’ve been knitting and sewing and stitch markering up a storm but I’ve been seriously neglecting the writing part of this. New blog schedule, for reals: Maker’s Mondays (this will have something to do with other people’s awesome creations, me trying something new, or bourbon, or all three), WIP Wednesdays (what I’m working… Read more →

Year in Numbers: 2014!

28 books read (Half of last year–I am ashamed. Best of the year, though: The Drop by Dennis Lehane. Only read it if you’re willing to believe the worst about everyone.) 47 knits bound off (Down again here but it’s okay. I finally finished a lace project [Haruni in Jade Sapphire Sylph], but my favorite is my Bigger on the… Read more →

Be Remarkable

I have been accused of creativity on occasion. In reality, I am just so lucky to have come from a family that fosters exploration and expression. I have cousins who are teachers, social workers, musicians, day care providers, architects–they do everything and many of them also make things. Today I want to feature some of my remarkable relations and their… Read more →

DrawFour Club September 2014: Deep Breath

It’s finally here! The very first DrawFour Club–a celebration of projects (because buying yarn with an idea isn’t stashing). I’ve been hard at work hammering out the bag design, creating fun stitch markers (and testing them–that’s important, right?), and doing that thing that my mom taught me: adding one more thing to the mix at the very last minute because… Read more →

Announcing the DrawFour Club!

Nerdy knitters unite! I have so much fun working with my favorite dyers, creating brand new colors inspired by my favorite shows that I decided to put together a quarterly club. Every three months, starting in September, I’ll be featuring a limited offering of exclusive hand-dyed yarn, club-only DrawFour Designs pattern, handmade project bag, and kitschy notion. For the inaugural… Read more →

Lazy Days and Crazy Days

For the last two months, it’s been one thing after another…or nothing. Steven’s on tour so I’ve been shipping yarn all over the country for the last month. Counting and wrapping and packing and shipping–that’s been my life. Plus, my coworkers and I had to do a stellar job keeping up the shop while our boss was out gallivanting about… Read more →

Bad Blogger!

No posts in a month? For shame, Bridget. FOR. SHAME. Lisa lectured me briefly at CONsole Room, the Doctor Who convention here in Minneapolis, so here I am. What have we missed? Fiber Fest 2014 was crazy and exhausting. I got to spend time with some rock star knitters…and internationally-known teachers. I also ran down to Texas for a day… Read more →

WIP Wednesday: POP Blanket

Shh, I know it’s Tuesday. For once, I’m ahead of schedule! I’ve been watching Zoolandia, the Yarn Garage‘s Shop Hop pattern on which I collaborated with Stephen West, rocket up the Ravelry charts all the way to #1 on the “What’s Hot” list. It’s free through April 21st so jump on it. I know this is probably old hat for… Read more →

Shop Hop!

It’s not Monday (clearly). My feet hurt and I am SO tired (note to self: comfier shoes tomorrow). But you’re here. And I’m here. Let’s Blog Post. Day one of the Minnesota Yarn Shop Hop was fantastic. We had great donations rolling in and hundreds of enthusiastic knitters. The StevenBe project is a new version of Steven’s classic ponchini with… Read more →
