Knitterly Arts Podcast!

A creative life is rarely a straight arrow path. Perhaps precisely because it IS creative, the path is winding and circuitous, with many side trails leading off the main one which eventually brings you back on track or becomes the new main path. This is how my own creative life has felt for nearly 20 years. I … Continue reading Knitterly Arts Podcast!

If Knitted Socks Could Speak

I'm thinking about socks these days. How much I like to knit them. How much I like to wear them. How they go so many places as they're being knitted. How they go even more places once they're knitted and on my feet. They seem to be the perfect humble work...both the knitting and the wearing … Continue reading If Knitted Socks Could Speak

Pointier Points & Other Weighty Matters

I mean, who really cares about whether the points on a knitted washcloth are pointier than previously knitted? I certainly don't care one way or the other...but therein lies the fun of it all! So, I finally finished my Hitchhiker Shawl, and oh what a nail-biting finish that was! Only about 2 1/2 inches of … Continue reading Pointier Points & Other Weighty Matters

Slowing Time

"Time is a relentless river. It rages on, a respecter of no one. And this, this is the only way to slow time: When I fully enter time's swift current, enter into the current moment with the weight of all my attention, I slow the torrent with the weight of me all here. When I'm … Continue reading Slowing Time

Ebb & Flow

There seems to be an ebb and flow to creating. For weeks, you are knitting something (or several somethings) stitch by stitch. You hop from project to project, keeping it interesting. In my case, I also bounce from drawing to knitting, from painting to crochet, from typing up a new design to making cards and prints … Continue reading Ebb & Flow

Gray Winter Days…

We've been having a lot of these. So gray and cold that even trying to get a decent photo of artwork is quite difficult. This was the best I could do today. I'll reshoot it another day soon! But as I was walking yesterday, I kept thinking this: Gray winter days are best enjoyed with … Continue reading Gray Winter Days…

Life in a Knitted Sock

As I browse through the photos I've taken, some instagrammed, some not... I realize there's a lot of life lived during the span of time it takes to knit a pair of socks. A new pair begins when I've finished the last pair. There are the soccer games and practices, mentioned in this recent post. … Continue reading Life in a Knitted Sock


I'm headed off on an adventure tomorrow. Not exactly the kind of adventure either you or I would want to go on, but adventure nonetheless: *There is travel involved. *I'm packing a suitcase. *There will be new experiences. *I will meet new people. *I will return different than I was before. This kind of adventure … Continue reading Adventure

Kaleidoscopes & Sock Yarn

I have a couple of kaleidoscopes. I've loved these things since I was a child. My husband's parents gave me one many moons ago. The other is a cheap one I picked up somewhere. The cool thing about kaleidoscopes is that everything they need for their beautiful, intricate, colorful patterns is already there, built into the … Continue reading Kaleidoscopes & Sock Yarn
