Let’s start at the very beginning, a very good place to start

I’ve written this post in my head dozens of times and it still probably won’t come out quite right.  How do you begin a blog?  You have to start somewhere I suppose.  Some post will, by default, be the very first.  Just like beginning a sweater, it may not seem like much at the start, but with any luck, it has the potential to become a well-worn and comfortable thing. 

This past year brought some big changes to my life.  My husband and I expanded our family with the arrival of our son Dax, and I decided to leave my position at Interweave to stay at home with him.  Now I will be pursuing work as a knitwear designer and hope to share some of my process here along with other knitting I do.  And I’m sure other bits of my life will float in as well; I love to craft and do other… stuff that will potentially be blogworthy!

Let’s start with an FO; my Christmas knitting was surprisingly fruitful this year.  Here’s a pair of plain-old socks I knit for my sister. 

I used one of the Miss Babs yarns in the Cleopatra colorway.  The socks were knit top-down though I usually prefer toe-up.  She loved them!

xoxo Katie
