Apologies For My Absence

Hello to anyone out there who’s still checking in on this blog! 🙂 I apologize for my absence of late. I’ve been a terrible knitting blogger. In fact, I’ve been a terrible knitter in general.


I got a job. A full-time teaching job. After 14 years of staying home with kids and/or substitute teaching. This has been a BIG change and I’m just now (mostly) getting a handle on things.

I have, however, been teaching my students to knit. We started out with one finger, then moved to 4.


The next step is using needles. 4 years ago I bought 50 pairs from a seller on etsy. I can find 26 of them, and need to find 24 more. And then some. (I have 56 students in all.)

In the meantime, I work on a project when I can. I have a project I’ve been working on for over a year… it’s slow going, but I’m nearing the end. It was a project for a friend’s book that I haven’t heard any news about lately. I suppose I should reach out to her and see if she’s still in need of it.

And I’ve got a few gifts I should knit.

I will also try to spotlight the rest of my book patterns from “Once Upon A Knit” – I realize I only got about halfway through them. I will do my best to finish.

Thanks for checking in. I hope to be posting again very soon!

    I specifically looked up vampire knits. I love the look of your books but I don’t know what is in them. I don’t know what you are capable of doing but if you allowed pictures of the patterns you are doing, you would sell more books. I went through it and only saw two items. they were nice but convincing. the look inside showed two items and probably part of a pattern. if I were looking in a bookstore, that is how I would know to buy the book. no one is going to download pictures of knits so you don’t have to worry about not buying the book. I work in a vampire boutique and I knit. I will probably get it anyway. but seeing what was in it could have sold me and others faster.

    I love your “Once Upon a Knit” book I am currently working on the Ruby Red Riding Hood for next Halloween, but I have encountered a problem/I became confused. After I finish the second buttonhole row it says to work rows 1-16 of the pattern, but rows 1-8 are the basket-weave rows can you explain what you mean by this? The picture doesn’t show another row of basket-weave in the hood, so is it just on the edges that it’s basket-weave and the rest is knit or purl row also do we increase during those rows?

      Hi. Let me take a look at the sample I knit. It’s been awhile, and I just moved, so it may take me a day or two. Sorry for this, and thanks for your patience!

        That’s fine. I should let you know that on Ravelry some others post similar questions. You may want to post a similar answer on that cite as well.
