Emily Explains: Sewing on Buttons

Between work and knitting for others, it’s hard to find the time to knit for myself.  I managed to squeeze some in during my visit to the Mermaid’s Purl in Wickford, RI, knitting with Lizzie and her customers, and also on a trip to Maine. I was finally able to finish this cute wool sweater that I have been working on for months. I was so excited about finishing but I had to find the perfect buttons. Read more

Emily Explains: Torrey’s Rib Pattern

Recently, I had the pleasure of visiting Spinning Yarns in New Hampshire for a day. I got to know Margot (the owner), Kerri, and Dianna (Margot’s mom!). It was so wonderful! I joined in on their morning class where everyone brought the project they were working on. All of the knitters were helping each other and sharing ideas. It was a day filled with knitting and great conversation! We discussed everything from our favorite yarns and patterns to techniques we found confusing. Read more

Barrison’s Travels: TNNA Columbus

As I mentioned in last week’s TNNA in Review, Barrison tagged along on our recent trip to Columbus, OH for The National Needlearts Association‘s summer trade show. She really enjoyed meeting new people, but if I had to guess, I’d say her favorite part was probably the food! She got her first taste of strawberries, steak and of course, Jeni’s ice cream! Read more
