  • My India trip is booked! Looks like I’ll be spending a few days in Munich on my way there – still debating heading to the Wollmeise store since I’ll be 45 minutes away by train, but am not sure that my pocketbook would appreciate that (plus it would eat into actually seeing Munich.)

Design Diary #1: Here We Gnome Again

Super excited and nervous to be launching videos! Here’s my first design diary – a peek into a pattern – how it’s constructed, some tips, and what inspired me. I’m crazy happy that the first one is a gnome. Too perfect, don’t you think?

Here We Gnome Again Pattern

More links over in the YouTube description of the video. I’d love it if you’d like the video and subscribe. I plan to start doing lots of short videos on all sorts of things, from book reviews to WIPs.

On the Knitted Path

Katie:

  • The other week while we were recording I suddenly became aware of how much I was using the term “guys” as a general catchall, and I want to acknowledge that that is a gendered term and commit to trying to be more inclusive in my language. There are more than just women in our group and there are more than just two genders. I want to try to be more inclusive in my language. It’s going to take some rewiring of reflexive terminology, so thank you for your patience as I do so, but I do want to do better.
