    I think this is just so wonderful! I follow you on Ravelry and I have made a few of your patterns but this is the first blog post I read, and I’m so glad I did! I do have one question if you don’t mind me asking…what knitting g style to you use? I’m just wondering how you knit all of these wonderful pieces so fast. I’m very, very interested to know this. Anyways, thank you for sharing the private pieces of your lives. It was nice to read!

    I have been enjoying watching your family grow into all these precious knits and it so inspired me to do the same for my family! Appreciate you!

    Wow, I don’t know why but I shed a couple tears while reading this. It might be because I just got married and want kids in an abstract sense but am afraid of all the realities of it… so you writing about your hesitancy and then all the good things that have come when you took the plunge was really beautiful (and thank you for being honest!).

    And that Strange Brew cover is really the ultimate #SquadGoal. I have yet to knit a Strange Brew but it is in the queue! I particularly love Jones’ version one the cover.

    Love this. Also, I have always loved Neve’s name because it’s so close to my sister’s name— Niamh. :)
