Back in January I posted a photo on Instagram of some yarn for a project I was planning to knit. I tagged the designer of the pattern and thus began a wonderful connection. The yarn was my own Twigs + Twine Yarn Co. line in the colorways Thistle and Granite Falls and the pattern was … Continue reading Where The Mermaids Live
So just what am I talking about? Well, these are the different kinds of bags I currently offer. And why the "travel" theme? Because what do you do with your project bags? Obviously you store your projects in them but what else do with them? You take them with you. When you run errands, in … Continue reading Adventure Bag, Road Trip, Grab n’ Go Bag. What You Talkin’ bout Willis?
Every couple of years during the Olympics Ravelry holds a comparative competition of knitting, spinning and frogging (yes, frogging) called the Ravellenics. Now, it use to be called the Ravelympics but the Olympics didn't like that and made them change it. Which I just find ridiculous but...that's a whole other blog post so we won't … Continue reading The Ravellenic Experience
You may have read on the Twigs + Twine Yarn Co. website that my daughter has decided not to continue in the yarn dyeing business. Yes, it's very sad news and I will miss working with her. But we all have to take the path that is best for us. This has left me with … Continue reading Changes

And one way I'm doing that is … Continue reading My Year of Knitting – 2017 Review
My husband started dressing up as Santa when our kids were little. It was my ultimate goal to keep them believing in Santa as long as possible. I would go as far as making foot prints on the carpet with my husbands boots and flour (do not use real ashes, they don’t come out of … Continue reading Special Deliveries
On Thursday ( 11/23/2017) we will all (well most of us) sit down for a Thanksgiving feast. I assume your house is probably like mine and will have the traditional holiday dinner of turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, cranberry sauce, candied yams, green bean casserole and pumpkin pie (mustn't forget the pumpkin pie, it's the best part). … Continue reading Thanksgiving Tradition
Well, I might be. But I'm OK with that. Why am I pointing this out? Well... I just quit my full time guaranteed money in the bank I can make my car payment job. Yeah...you read that right. I quit. Why? Well...because I absolutely hated it. I won't bore you with all the details and … Continue reading Am I Crazy?
Ok, I'm going to have a little rant here because...well...it's my blog and I can. Someone recently pointed me in the direction of a project bag posted on Instagram. When I had a look I noticed this bag looked very familiar. That was because it was very similar to one I had created (and sold) … Continue reading I Feel So Violated
