my knitting story

While it has been told before, I share once again the story of the first two projects I cast on !

on the needles

I am very excited to be venturing into pattern writing again. My first shawl has been cast on and going along nicely using Cyborg Craft Room in the Space Oddity colourway ! This shawl will be one of the many patterns in a future ebook ! My Mini Bunny Loves have been coming along quite slowly. The one I cast on from the previous week will be ripped this week. And I have cast on a new one in a solid colourway which I am much more pleased with. Using Patons Kroy Rag Shades has been a lot of fun to knit. I am down to the heel on both of the socks, but am having trouble sitting down to learn the fish lips kiss heel !

fingering weight KAL

Decadently Divine is being so generous to giveaway a skein for our KAL and so is Spin Monkeys ! Both are offering a 20% discount code using the code HOMESPUN until the end of February (Friday the 28th!) ! For this KAL, you are free to knit anything your heart desires as long as it is in fingering weight !


My wheel and I have finally been reunited ! And I am very much so enjoying spinning on her :) This past week, I received some wonderful superwash merino rolags from Nicole C Mendez

April KAL announcement

I am excited to announce that in April we will be joining together to knit all things Cascadia! I will be knitting the Ravens Nest Shawl using a wonderful new to me German yarn. I have decided on the BlissA*** yarn in the Inkie colourway ! Danica, the owner and dyer behind Natures Luxury, will be offering a giveaway on her group ! She will be giving away TWO skeins of this yarn to one of you !! You simply have to join her group and enter in her giveaway thread ! She is also offering a pattern giveaway in the A Homespun House ravelry group !

other handwork works in progress

Because my cross stitching mojo has been almost nonexistent, my Once Upon A TimeSampler is coming along very slowly

shop update

My shop has been quite empty for a while, and for that I apologize ! That is something that will be changing very soon now that I have received my new fabric order ! Custom orders are something I am open to and love doing ! So please, do not hesitate to ask !

  1. Hi Molly!

    I got the medium toy car project bag here in Toronto. It is super lovely and perfect. Thanks for the gummy bears, my friends are busily translating the packaging as they are learning german :)


    Great podcast!

  2. Hi Molly~ I have really been enjoying your podcast! I also am a “Grandma Sue” and just absolutely loved the episode with your grandma! I hope that I inspire my granddaughter as much as your Grandma Sue did you! Keep up the excellent job podcasting please! I love how you are so relaxed and have a lot of content in your episodes – yarn, cross stitch, sewing, etc. Where did you get your awesome fabric with the wiener dogs in sweaters? I am a dog lover and must have this! I am in the states so wouldn’t have to wait as long as you did! :) Thanks for adding your personality to the fiber world!
