Today i start my very first blog in years. "Exciting stuff" :-) I figure that so much has been going on with my artwork that i should really put it out into the internet universe and share it in the hopes it may make someone smile or inspire others to learn to knit or crochet :-)
Today i am busy creating original infant hats and a hedgehog for a friend's first baby and plotting my next yarn bomb here in Traverse City Mi.
I am a hopelessly, shamelessly addicted pattern free speed knitter. I have been knitting for 11 years now . I NEVER read patterns, though i do know how contrary to common belief ;-) Patterns are the ideas of other people in a format for any Tom Dick And Mary to also create. I prefer to just dream things up, cast on and make up my own patterns which is why i call my little business " Knit Happens".
This summer has been a non stop whirlwind of activity now that i really think about it. I have been busy with gall bladder surgery,orders , buying our first home and moving , fairs and bombs:-)
The Les Cheneaux Antique Wooden Boat Show was cold and rainy for the entire day but Brit and i sat at our covered booth with our wares again this year :-) I am happy to say that many of my creations are now happily out in the world with people who fell in love with them which is a big deal to me :-)
In the next few weeks i have 35 orders to complete as colder weather is coming this way and people are having babies . I also have the Makers Market Art fair to prepare for . I am putting my submission in for the jury tomorrow. **Cross your fingers***
