Last Friday, my dear friend Paige hosted the coolest thing ever: a maker night! The guest was Anne Weil, author of Knitting Without Needles: A Stylish Introduction to Finger and Arm Knitting. Anne is utterly delightful and an excellent teacher -- she was unphased wrangling our chatty group of ladies! It was so fun to learn a new craft and I made this gorgeous cowl in 30 minutes! The yarn was so delicious and I want to sleep in a big fluffy pile of it every night.
I ordered a copy of Knitting Without Needles and am so excited to load up on yarn. I'm planning on making cowls for holiday gifts and also probably the adorable pom-pom hat! The pouf is also tempting. Anne also offers kits online if you want to dive in that way. Go forward and make stuff! It's an incredibly awesome source of therapy!
