It was a long and grumpy winter. With a Spring move on the horizon--plus an army of realtors, stagers, photographers and perfect strangers marching though our house on an almost daily basis--February was a uniquely irritating month.
I'll be the first to admit that I don't handle change well...especially a big change like moving. So it should come as no surprise that the prospect of boxing up all my yarn, needles, and notions...the tools I use to bring meaning and purpose to my life every day...pretty much killed my knitty mojo.
But guess what? I got my mojo back!!! And in the coming days I'll be celebrating its return with the release of a brand new pattern for Spring!
"Sprung" is a pair of silky-soft fingerless mitts that truly define decadence. I can't wait to release the pattern...now that I finally managed to capture outdoor photos without the risk of frostbite!
I guess one's personal knitty mojo is like any other natural force in wintertime...asleep, but not gone ;)
Hello & Welcome!
I'm Alexis, the knitter/designer behind cold comfort knits. My favourite animal is a sheep (obvi). Second in line? Alpacas. But not llamas--those guys are mean! As for house pets? I'm a cat person, 100%. Other things to know about me? My primary knitting fuel is vanilla-hazelnut coffee. And my inner child is actually more of an inner senior-citizen. I'm an old fogey at heart. Nice to meet you! Happy knitting!
