I’m so happy to be able to provide these show notes for y’all again this week. Of course, if you have any questions or comments, don’t hesitate to contact me!
Yarn: Madeline Tosh in the colorway “Faint”
Pattern: Vanilla Birthday Socks by Christy of Yarn Cafe Creations
Notes: This is my first pair of sock *this* short, and they were so fun to make!
Works in Progress:
Notes: These are for a fun little challenge I am doing this week on Instagram! I was inspired by Kay of The Crazy Sock Lady to see how long it takes me to knit a pair of socks. Tune into my stories for more details!
This is my second favorite dishcloth of the Spring Collection! Find the tutorial here :)
Koi Fish Shawl
I am using beautiful Hand Dyed yarn by Koi Fish Fibers for this design! It has been so much fun to create so far :)
I am using KnitPicks Swish Bulky for this new blanket design. I am loving this stitch pattern, and can’t wait to share more!
I have been wanting to design a blanket like this for awhile...and Brava Speckle is the perfect opportunity! It is going to be SO cute. Stay tuned!
Y’all, I can’t even with this design. It took SO long to narrow down my idea, but I have officially started and it is going *great.* I am so excited about it! It probably won’t be coming out until the endish of summer (as of now), but stay tuned for more progress!
This week, I wanted to chat about something pretty personal, but with an overarching encouragement. To put this story simply, I have always been small and short. I never thought much of it until other kids started being rude in fourth and fifth grade. I wanted to share this little piece of me to encourage you with one important fact...words matter.
That little phrase, “sticks and stones may break my bones but words could never hurt me,” is one of the biggest lies I have heard. In fact, as I am typing this, those words were suggested. Here’s the thing: your words are one of the most powerful things you can share with the world. They can be full of light and hope, or they can be full of darkness.
Now there are so many things I could say about this topic, but that isn’t the point. I want to encourage you to always let *your* words be encouraging. We aren’t perfect, and we won’t always succeed, but I believe that we can always always try.
This song by Leanna Crawford that I listened to recently really got me thinking about all this again. Always let your words be encouraging and uplifting!
Until next time,
Amy Kate <3
