Knitting Podcasts

Ahoy, my virtual knitting family! Another week has flown by, hasn’t it? I had a particularly busy weekend, helping to chaperone at a church youth retreat. My wife and I brought Blueberry along, which was lots of fun and added to the complexities of the weekend. Youth group + toddler in a new environment =…

Crossing The Finish Line

Howdy, my knitting family! A special welcome to those of you who have found my blog because Pam and Hannah mentioned it on the latest knit.fm podcast. You probably want to start by reading my knitting origin story, then come back to poke around the rest of the blog. Things continue to be busy in…

The Great Sickness

How’s it going, my virtual knitting circle? I sure hope you’re doing better than I am. It’s been a rough week in the Knitting Daddy household. At the beginning on the week, my wife was sick. The past several days, I’ve been sick. Fortunately, we’ve managed to keep Blueberry from getting sick, but the sickness…

The Ravellenic Games

Ahoy, knitters! I hope you had a wonderful week. For those of you new to the Knitting Daddy blog, welcome! To those of you returning, welcome back! My goal is to have a new blog entry posted every Monday morning (Eastern US time), but every now and then, that slips. Like this week. I was…

My First Knitted Toy

Hello, knitters! More and more, I’m realizing that I’m becoming a toy knitter. At least that’s the direction a lot of my current knitting is going, and I’m not objecting. This is largely due to the great patterns that I keep discovering from one of my favorite knitting designers, Susan B. Anderson. In this edition…

My First Real Adult Sock

Do I Have To Knit Two Socks?

As I write this post, it’s a cold, rainy, dreary day in central North Carolina. Blueberry’s upstairs in her bed, trying not to drift asleep while she plays with her socks and her stuffed animals. I just brewed up a nice hot cup of peppermint tea. It’s a good day to snuggle up inside, preferably…

Red And White Tiny Sweater

Tiny Top-Down Sweater Ornaments!

It’s been another busy week (aren’t they all?), and it’s getting closer to Christmas! It’s been so busy, that I’m a day later than usual in getting this blog out — I hope to be back on the Monday morning schedule again next week. This week, I’m going to talk about some pretty awesome knitted…

Knitting Starter Kit

How’s your holiday knitting coming along? Mine’s fine, but only because I don’t┬áreally have any specific holiday knitting goals. Sure, I’m doing holiday knitting, but pretty much as the mood strikes me. Earlier this week, a friend asked what would make a good “starter kit” for a new knitter, and I had a great time…

The Baby Surprise Jacket

Another week has flown by, hasn’t it, dear readers? For those of you in the United States, I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. For those of you in the rest of the world, I hope you tolerated all the “Happy Thanksgiving” wishes thrown at you from all the folks in the United States. I…
