Hello creative friends!  In this episode I continue sharing with you my journey knitting Selbu Mittens all year long - my FOs, WIPs, and wool talk! Soren shaped up nicely, and is eagerly awaiting his mate, Jennie! I also finished the Changing Light shawl - a KAL hosted by my local knitting guild.  Finally, I share a couple of fabric travelers notebooks I created and I share the 2000 subscriber giveaway - an amazing kit you will want to try and win!

Episode 19: Sunset Highway, Colorwork Mittens and Children's Books/Knitting Gift Ideas!

image2[2999].jpeg

Hello fellow knitters!  In Episode 19, I share with you my finished Sunset Highway, Winterland Mitten, and the start of my Changing Light shawl (a KAL I'm running with my guild - The Greater Grand Rapids Knitting Guild). I also urge you to follow @shershe on Instagram - a really unique blogger who not only knits, but "rescues" vintage photos from thrift stores, and researches the people in the photo's history! Fascinating stuff. Finally, I share with you my ideas for Holiday gifts for the favorite children in your life - combining a children's book with a knitted item that reflects the story.  Hope you'll join me!

You can find me as Treehouse Knits on Instagram, Ravelry, and Facebook
