    I’ve knit my daughter 2 flax sweaters one in the 2-4 and another in 4-6 I’m about to knit her and her baby sib flax light in the newborn size. There’s just something really satisfying for me about flax, it’s the only sweater pattern I’ve ever reknit. I also knit worsted vanilla hats for holiday presents. People seem to really like them.

    I have to say, Flax is a really good go-to sweater! It’s so simple and adaptable. I’m on my second (this one is the Light version) with some minor mods and I love how something so easy can become a finished garment that’s so awesome!

    Socks. The toe and heel keep me interested, then the foot and cuff are the perfect midless knitting for me.

    I’ve rarely re-knit anything. I always start out planning various mods for my subsequent versions, but by the time i’m done with a project, I never want to knit it again & I’m off to the next new thing.

    Beautiful! First time grandma-to-be and will be knitting this for sure. I cannot find info on the yarn used for the pink Antler cardi. Which yarn might that be?

    Bread and butter knitting – so funny, yet so true.

      I think Emily used Rainbow Heirloom Brit Aran in ‘Birthday Suit’

    Have to say I love your patterns! So easy to follow and beautiful…. I’m not what my bread and butter is….. Something to think about

    Churchmouse Basic Sock, Gretchen, any stitch that i like with any of the “I only have one skein of this” and it usually turns into a rectangular shawl/scarf

    My go to comfort project is Susie Rogers fingerless reading mitts. I don’t wear them myself but I know the pattern by heart and I’ve made so may pairs. I have gifted them to friends of mine, of my husband and those friends of my children and also to some of the elderly folks I look after. I might get round to a pair for me, one day.
