  1. Katie and Kara,

    The site looks great and your enthusiasm is evident throughout. I’m not ready to try knitting yet but I will follow your blog. I look forward to telling people years from now that I knew you both before the Nice and Knit magazine, Web show, TV appearances and such like. :)

  3. My mom is Annette Anderson she was so excited that she won the knitting bowl….it couldnt have gone to a true knitter true and true….Thank you!!!!

  4. I stumbled across your blog and I’m so happy I did! It’s really fabulous and I love the photography. You almost make me want to take up knitting :) Keep up the great work!

  5. I am really interested in the knit along…I know it has already started, but you’ve inspired me. For the longest time I have been wanting to knit Aidez. I’m having trouble committing to a yarn…can you advise? Also, can’t decide what size to make…I’m usually a Medium, but from comments, not sure if I should size up. Any guidance you can give me would be greatly appreciated. By the way, I LOVE your blog…I check in every day!

  6. It was rather by chance that I ran into your blog this morning and for the last hour or two I have been admiring your pictures, works, and writing. That made me a follower. Thank you!

  7. Kara I enjoyed working with u and Matt this weekend. You both did a great job and it gave me a chance to get to know both of u a little better. I see your also a great knitter, u younger generation are going to have to teach us older generation how to knit some day. We missed class that day. 😉 Carole

  8. I made this hat using the size yarn and needles, but it was huge. I love the pattern, so how can I decrease the size?

    • Hi Marilyn,

      What this means is that you and Katie (original knitter) knit at very different tensions. Katie must knit much more tightly than you do! You will want to reduce your needle size until you’re able to obtain the gauge (number of stitches per inch) the pattern calls for which in this case is 4.5 stitches per inch. You can knit a small swatch to measure how many stitches you are knitting per inch. You may want to go down a needle size or two to get the correct gauge before re-knitting the hat. If you do a quick google search there are many articles and youtube videos that might help, or typically your local yarn shop might be able to help as well. Best of luck!

  9. Katie, Do you still sell flower pins? I have four that I LOVE and would like more if you still sell them!

  10. Hi Katie and Kara…I found this article on the “health benefits” of knitting and wanted to share….no more need to feel guilty when I pick up my needles!

    From the Washington Post…Health, Science and Environment section:
    “There is a great deal more anecdotal evidence of the beneficial health effects of knitting. For instance, the McLean-based nonprofit Project Knitwell, which offers knitting instruction for caregivers, hospital staff, patients and patients’ relatives, has found that participants “are less worried and feel a great sense of accomplishment when they complete a knitted item,” says the group’s founder, Carol Caparosa. “We work with many new mothers whose babies are born prematurely and they may not be able to hold their babies for weeks after their birth, but they can knit them a hat, which brings them a tremendous sense of pride and feeling of mothering.”

    The rhythmic movements of knitting offer many of the same kinds of benefits as meditation, says Carrie Barron, an assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at Columbia University in New York and co-author of the book “The Creativity Cure: How to Build Happiness With Your Own Two Hands.” In addition, she says, seeing a project take shape provides a deep sense of satisfaction. “When we have a life-affirming project going on that grabs the self and gets it to work in a positive way, that is an antidepressant,” Barron says.

  11. Hi, well I finally found a site on WordPress for knitters. I knit and crochet. You know crochet is easier because the hooks are small. Even though knitting has small needles. But I haven’t done any work because I’ve been so busy writing. Anyhow, I want to ask if you’re familiar with a book called The Complete Encyclopedia of Stitchery by Mildred Graves Ryan? It’s the best one that I know that includes embroidering, macramé, rug making, sewing, and tatting. It came out in 1979. So, it’s an old but good book. Thank you. Sincerely.
