Knitting Challenge Day 4
How did I learn to knit? Well, the first time I ever picked up knitting needles was when I was around seven years old. My mom, my aunt, my brother and I were traveling to my grandparents’ house, and on the way we stopped at a big garage sale, as we often did, to see if there was anything cool we could bring with us. My pick for the day was an old knitting starter kit, with a...
Knitting Challenge Day 3
Ok, so apparently I’m not so great at remembering to do this everyday. So, I will try my best, but no promises! Today’s question is, do I have any other works in progress? I kind of addressed this yesterday, my bad. I am currently working on finishing both my baby tunic test knit, as well as the second mitten of a pattern I am having tested. Pictures will follow...
Knitting Challenge Day 2
What is currently on your needles? Well, right now I have two projects on the go, actually. The first is a test knit of a baby tunic that I’m working on, but it’s not actually on my needles, as I’m just finishing it now. The second is the second mitten of a mitten pattern that I’m designing, and hope to be done soon! I will post photos of the test...

I had recently taught myself to knit, and while I was at my Oma’s house, she gave me some yarn to entertain me (I was about 7 years old,...
Time to Breathe... and the Knitting Challenge!
I finished my last exam today! I know I said I had almost finished before, or maybe I even said I was completely finished, but I had French today. Which was really easy, so I wasn’t counting it. But now I really finally done! And remember that trip to Toronto to see War Horse I had mentioned was postponed a couple of months ago? That is tomorrow, and I’m excited! I may bake...
Sorry my posts have been few and far between recently. I am a part of the International Baccalaureate Programme (for those of you who don’t know what this is, basically a higher lever learning program with an insane workload), and I recently had my exams. To give an example of how hectic my life has been, last week I had 9 exams and then on the weekend had a first aid course all weekend! ...

So Much Exciting News!
There have been so many exciting things going on over the past few days, both knitting and non-knitting related! 1. I finished knitting and writing up a new pattern called “Wicked Witch Tea Cozy.” I won’t post photos until I release the pattern, once it’s finished being tested, but if you want to get in on the test knitting action, message me and I can send you a photo!...
