The last two months I have been working on a new website/project that was completely inspired by the most common reactions I get to my knitwear and sewing designs over the last 5 years, and I am so excited to finally share it with you guys! When I come up with my patterns and style my outfits, usually I aim to project a certain image; overall I want to convey power because we all are inherently powerful, no matter how we… Read more »

The holiday season is a bit surreal for me each year. It’s as if I’m entering into an environment where time slows down because nothing make sense. There’s a lot of rushing, a lot of anger, a lot of worry, and it’s all set against this backdrop of bright lights, warm colors, and smiling families. It’s always so cold, and my cheeks burn from the wind, but I’m usually carrying hot chocolate or a mocha, and somehow I keep warm… Read more »

Sweater Curse noun \swedər kers\ – The belief that if a knitter gifts a hand knit sweater to a significant other before being bound together in a ceremony such a marriage, the relationship will dissolve before the sweater is completed.   I don’t usually knit for other people. I’m pretty selfish when it comes to my knitting, with an exception for babies and charity, and I think it makes sense. I’m putting a lot of time, money, and ultimately love into… Read more »

When I think back to January, I had huge and high hopes for 2017. I don’t exactly make resolutions, but I picked the word “expand” for the year. I figured I would just keep on working towards the goals I made the year before and grow everything along the way. Simple enough, right? When I started We All Knit Here over 3 years ago, my intention was to create a community around knitting. Having taught myself to knit, I knew there… Read more »

Hello, hello! This week I have a few announcements I wanted to highlight: I’m having a 30% off sale in my Ravelry shop – if you haven’t already, grab your patterns because the sale ends Wednesday at midnight, CST! (Just add the pattern to your cart for the discount to apply.) I’m compiling a group of knitters that would get free access to my patterns before the release date. If you love to knit my patterns, love being the first… Read more »

I’ve wanted to do a round up of some of my favorite accessories for knitters for awhile, but let’s be honest, after my yarn and needles of course, all I really care about is my cup of coffee or tea that better be within an arm’s reach. If you’re the same, this list is for you – hope you enjoy some of my faves! (Click on each one to find out more about it – and this post contains affiliate… Read more »

I was contemplating a serious problem earlier this year: how can I make a proper winter sweater with no lace, no cotton, no nothing that I tend to favor? As I was browsing through books and most of the internet for ideas, I was struck by an amazing idea: Of course, I can make it with chevrons! (I know, I know, what a surprise…) But stick with me because this sweater is all about texture. Knit with a Malabrigo’s worsted… Read more »

Knitting is hugely important in our lives, obviously, and so it only seems natural to want to extend and share our knitting with others. I’ve been trying to compile a list of national charities either in the US or in the UK where you can make a difference in someone’s life. I’ve broken down the charities by topic, and I’ve also tried to include a variety – because while it’s great to knit a million blankets for those in need,… Read more »

I don’t know how things are going for you, but it’s incredibly busy in my part of the world! On top of everything else, I turned 30! Everyone seems concerned that I would have a little mini mid-life crisis, but I’m feeling pretty great. Besides, I’m much too busy worrying about moving across the country to worry about my age – I feel just as young as I felt a month ago! Anyway, to celebrate my birthday, I’m offering 30%… Read more »
