    I would be interested in knowing how long it takes you to knit a child’s sweater. I’m a slow knitter, but trying to get faster… Also any tips you have at knitting faster (and therefore knitting more!) would be greatly appreciated.

      I knit about 25 yards per hour in worsted weight yarn, but my technique isn’t particularly good for speed. I think it’s just all that practice! The tips I have heard are all to do with keeping your movements small and getting rid of any excess movements (an example of that is that I personally tap each stitch after completing it, it’s completely involuntary, but if you can get rid of movements like that it’ll make you faster)

    I grew up with hand knit sweaters and never saw my mom without her knitting. That is such a great photo of your children. It is a wonderful gift we have as knitters to show our love in such a physical way. Thank you for sharing your design talents with us.

    I love this so much, and that antler in quarry is just gorgeous! Your kids are so lucky to have a mom who is ‘too much’ aka just right. 💖

    I love the black sweaters with the red/green hats. One of my favorite cardigans is a black,white and grey Icelandic sweater I knit two years ago. It looks good with all my colorful accessories! I am so encouraged by this to knit more “basics” with colorful accessories. Thank you too, for the hints to use different gauge yarns with good patterns like Antler.
