Anyone who has ever been on a gig with me or traveled with me knows I love to knit. I started knitting in 2008 during a really stressful time in my life. I was out of town working, and a fellow musician took me to a yarn store. What a treat! She helped me pick out some beautiful yarn and needles, and then spent the next couple of hours sitting with me at a coffee shop, teaching me how to knit some straight rows. It was DEFINITELY not relaxing at first! I made tons of mistakes, and wasn't really sure what I was doing. But like anything, after a couple of months of practice, I got the hang of it. My first successful project was a giant scarf that I knit in a weekend when I was in Haddonfield, NJ. Since then, I've been addicted to the meditative quality of knitting. I love the feel of the yarn in my hands; the rhythm of the needles, and of course the beautiful finished product. I'll be honest, I love knitting for myself the most! But making sweet baby clothes are my second favorite things to knit. Here are some of the ones I love the most!
