My first silly knitting tutorial.

So, I've been selling my teddy bear pattern on Etsy and Craftsy, and thought, "hmmmm, maybe I could do a little video or two to help with some of the technique." LOL! I am such a dork on video. But, if you'd like to see my tutorial on embroidering the face on a teddy bear, head to my blog and check it out :)

Moving to Chattanooga, TN

Hey Guys! Andy & I are getting ready to move down to Chattanooga, TN so Andy can be closer to family while he goes back to school full-time.

We have been to a couple yarn shops down there. Three Black Sheep in Signal Mountain and the Genuine Purl in Chattanooga. Just wondering if anyone lives in the area, has further suggestions on places to go or any other tid-bits that may be helpful!

Who's your favorite men's designer?

I've been looking at a lot of pattern books and I think I know why women say there's a curse on knitting for their hubbies/bfriends etc. I think its becuase they follow the patterns verbatim from the books. color and all.
I bought Knits Men Want by Bruce Weinstein and have been singing his praises ever since. I love the patterns, the colors he chose, and the way he handles gauge.
