|Hello from our first craft sale! We had no idea what we were doing!|
I'm not kidding; it was offensively bad.
Fast forward to college when the lovely Erica hosted a craft night and offered to re-teach me. I'm here to tell you muscle memory is a beautiful thing, Erica is a wonderful teacher, and this is a great book:
I've been knitting and we've had craft nights ever since. Now I teach knitting at JoAnn Fabrics in Mount Pleasant, MI (come take my classes, they're fun!) and sell my knitted goods with the other fine ladies of Locust Street Crafts and sometimes at The Book Shelf in Mount Pleasant. Here's some stuff I make:
|The headband, the hat, the items in the yellow bowl, and the catnip mice in the basket are things I made!|
I live with my two cats Harper and Henry. Knitting with cats near by can be interesting, but they do pretty well for the most part.

Other than that, you should know that am currently obsessed with British TV (Downton Abbey 4eva), La Croix sparkling water, staying up late, and stripey things. I am always obsessed with knitting, Harrison Ford, red wine, Jane Eyre, and dark chocolate. I also have two other blogs: one where I write about general shenanigans and another one where Liz and I talk about being sometimes-sort of-mostly-vegetarian.
I'm so happy you're here reading our little blog! We hope you'll continue to follow our adventures in friendship and crafting!
