I’ve been following this website for many years and my “gossip” has been shared on the knitting, felting and sewing pages in the past. You might already know me as the Guide to Knitting for About.com, but if you don’t, that’s OK, too. I’ve been working on that site, full of free patterns, tutorials and reviews, for more than five years, but I jumped at the opportunity to come over here and share even more knitting goodness with you.
I hope to bring you all the best in knitting news, share free patterns and techniques, give away lots of great stuff and get to know all of you, what you’re knitting and what you need help with, too.
When I’m not knitting or reading or writing about knitting, I also love to sew, though I’m not very good at it, and craft with and for my daughter, who’s about to turn three. (Eeek!) I share what we’ve been working on, as well as my unending quest for the perfect homemade playdough, at my blog, which I call Our Daily Craft even though I don’t post every day. I’ve also recently gotten into art journaling and smash books; we’ll see if that lasts longer than any attempt to scrapbook in my life ever has (which is not very long).
I’m the author of one book about knitting and felting, Picture Yourself Felting Your Knitting, and am at work on another one, all about knitting for babies, that’s due out next year.
But enough about me! I just wanted to drop in and say hi before I get busy sharing all the knitting gossip I know. I’m so glad to be here.
