Hi, Denae, so nice to have you here with us! Let us know more about you and your life, will you? I've been knitting since Christmas of 2007 when I had the notion to ask for a kit as a gift. I am mostly self taught but got help starting out from my mother in …

Guess what ...she doesn't sound that crazy after all, ha?
I don't know if there's such a thing as "just knitting in silence"... I know I just can't sit and knit and not listen to or watch something inspiring at the same time... Knitting and crocheting match so well with music, books and movies, they really do keep each other company and so, I've found …
Perhaps you're wondering what's in that bag? Well, watch the video and find out!
...to express my gratitude to my Ravelry friends who have been standing by me for a whole year, ever since I created my Designer's Group. Testing and tech-editing, knitting my new patterns and creating some really beautiful knits out of them, caring about what's happening here, in Greece, and supporting me in times of joy …

This is a wavy scarf because ... I wanted it to be! It's a clever way to teach how to change directions while knitting and create a flowing knit, that, depending on the yarn chosen can become very impressive scarf or stole! We'll be holding a KAL, as always, in order to lauch this new pattern …
To all the fellow knitters & crocheters that know only too well how knitting gets us through this life! Many Happy returns of WWKIP Day to all of us!!!

I couldn’t measure the gravits*, the gloves, the mittens,
The jerseys, the cuffs, the hose, the caps,
The cowls, the cravats, the cardigans,

Knitting or crocheting for babies simply rocks, don't you think so? Well, my 9,5-year-old is no longer a baby, but there's a way to knit for babies and have the pleasure of contributing to a good cause: Ilitominon is an organization that offers support and comfort to premature babies and their families and it takes just a …
