During our very snowy winter, I found myself spending time getting to know other knitters through their blogs. I’ll be honest — I never really understood blogging except for those fabulous food ones that made me want to rush to the kitchen. But I discovered this incredible community of craft bloggers and became inspired by their talent and watched, project by project, develop online. Some of my favorites are in Blogs:Stash (over there on the right), and I’m jumping into the conversation!
When thinking about my POV, I thought about the chest of drawers in my guest room, filled to bursting, with skeins of yarn that I’ve stashed over the years and Project:Stash was born.
So what is my first post about? Yarn? Patterns? I thought about what I spent many winter weekends doing … teaching myself new stitches. So, here is the brioche stitch. It was tough-going at first … I spent two solid weekends casting on and frogging … but then it came together. It’s now one of my favorite stitches (as modeled by my absolute favorite girl!).
