I learned how to crochet and knit and embroider when I was very little, around four years old. I’ve gone through periods of making things and moved onto other crafts at times, but I gotta tell you that right now I am in a hardcore yarn-obsessed mode.

I made a few hats and scarves last year but have jumped headfirst into making larger garments – I made my first cable cardi and then vowed I would never do so many cables again. Ha.

I’ve already had the chance to wear my cardi and it is so cozy that I’m sure it will be a staple this winter. Both the yarn and pattern were from KnitPicks, if you’re curious.

Since then, I have made a few shawls, but I do have another cardi in the queue for me, and am working on something for Steve. With lots of cables.
