🧶Sneaking in stitches

Have you ever snuck away to a hiding place to knit, dear reader? The car…the craft closet…maybe even the bathroom? When my kids were small, I would make deals with myself. I’d allow myself to knit after all the laundry was done (but is laundry really ever done???) or if I got the kids in…

🧶Is it time to make your mark?

  What’s on your summer reading list right now? I just finished up “Lessons in Chemistry” by Bonnie Garmus which was a fun and feminist beach-read break from my usual nonfiction reads. To me, the long, lazier days of summer are a great time to depart from the norm and read something you wouldn’t usually…

🧶Cast on with me?

  Hot Luke and I are not moving to Montana, y’all. Not that there’s anything wrong with Montana. It’s just that, for more than a year, we’ve lived in a 300-sq-ft temporary space in South Florida where I didn’t know a soul, and he left each morning before sunrise and returned after sunset from the…

🧶 Ode to a reluctant model

This week, as we’re scurrying around preparing to reveal our 37th Hot Loops project wall… The “OG” Hot Loops model is graduating from college.

🧶Shortest newsletter of the year

Hello fellow Yarnie! I hope this week’s newsletter finds you well and ensconced in at least one delicious project. Personally, I must confess I’ve made exactly zero stitches this week.

🎁The gift you gave Louis

Just two years ago, Louis Boria was working full-time in a hospital, repeatedly getting sick with COVID while trying to keep his fledgling knit design business afloat.

🎁 All new, for you

“I just felt flat,” Gin admitted. “All through lockdown, knitting kept me sane. But I hadn’t felt excitement about knitting in a long time. I thought, something has to change. I need some joy in my life.” How about you? Could you use more joy and creativity in your life?  For the past few years,…

🧶I’m not crying you’re crying

    This week y’all have had me in all my feels. My weekend was a little rough. First off, I’m in a hand splint (ruptured ligament in my right pointer finger) and tried knitting on the plane – a definite no-go for the next 6 weeks 😩. Then all my credit cards and license…

🧶The 30-minute scarf

Nearly a decade ago, we designed a scarf that was so fast and easy, it was almost a cheat. A tiny rectangle with loooooong fringe that could be made in half an hour, start to finish. We called it the Necks Big Thing (I know – it’s ok to groan at the dad joke) and…
