Michelle Obama’s been out on her book tour lately, and she said something that really struck me: she still struggles with imposter syndrome.
I don’t pretend to be some sort of tastemaker here on Ye Olde Internets, but I do spend an awful lot of time here and see a lot of neat stuff. I thought it would be nice to use my Friday posts to highlight groups of cool things I see online, whether they’re patterns, notions, knitflixing material, good audiobooks, or other things I think my knitter friends might enjoy.
This week: six recently-released mitten patterns I’m drooling over!
Just about 11 years ago, I was working out my very first knit stitches. It was something I learned fairly quickly and easily, and by Christmas 2007, I was so hooked that I was garter stitching away on the plane flight home from Boston to California. It was perhaps the best holiday gift I ever received.
The other day, I was at the beach with little C, working on a knit shawl while she built sandcastles next to me. It was a beautiful day, sunny, the sparkly ocean just feet away. Then, along came a random dude, shirtless and swigging from a 40oz beer.
For the first time, I thought I would properly chronicle the process of making a new sweater, from the beginning of the design process all the way through to the end. The next sweater design I’m working on is a short-sleeved, fall-appropriate sweater with a round yoke and some pretty lace detail.
If you’re a knitter who doesn’t end up ogling knitting gear on the regular, well then, I don’t even know what to do with you. Me? I’m an incurable online window shopper.
