    This is a great site. What do you all think of making simple hats for the kids in North Carolina who might not have any clothes right now. I might be able to find a place where we can send them if this is a good idea.

    I said the same thing when I taught sewing and quilting! And I might add that knitting/sewing for little kids is great practice. They aren’t fussy and will still wear your “practice” pieces!

    This is my first time visiting your blog and this is great advice. I am new to knitting and will keep this in mind. Thank you.

    Exactly this. I’m back in school for computer science, and each day of programming is this. Sometimes it is super frustrating, but not every skill worth learning is completely natural.

    You have to try new things in order to learn and grow. Not all of my knitting turns out well, so you rip and try again.

    I love this! I have learned so much patience from knitting. A group of our girlfriends wants to learn to knit so the friend that I’m opening the store with in the fall and I are going to use your simple collection to teach them this winter.
