  1. Is there a knitting/Crochet police as well as a quilting and cross stitch police, love the idea of working on 2 shawls at one, I really wish I could knit but i make such an awkward job of it that I have just about given up trying.

    Lovely stuff and plans as always. xx

    1. I don’t think there is a knitting police but there sure are yarn snobs lol. It is rare to find a knitter that only knits on one project at a time. Most knitters have several projects going at once. I try to limit myself to one hat, one shawl, one pair of socks, etc. I don’t feel the need to knit on several of the same type of project because even though the pattern is different it is still a hat to me. I love knitting shawls but my other shawl takes so much concentration that I just wanted a fun shawl to work on.

  2. Busy, busy as per usual! I think I’ve mentioned it before, but we have a couple of sisters who volunteer for The Linus Connection who take everyone else’s scraps and they use them to make crumb block quilts. They are all gorgeous! I always love seeing what crazy fabrics they manage to put together and make work. 🙂

    So, I have ridiculously bad eyesight, and even with my fancy glasses, I end up sitting with my nose close to the monitor to watch your videos so I can see what you’re showing. I very much enjoy your content and I will keep watching, but as a fellow TTMTer, I thought I should mention it. Have you considered having your camera closer to where you’re sitting? It would show your smiling face better, too! Please take this as a constructive comment and not a criticism. That’s how it’s meant. 🙂

    1. I completely understand the camera distance issue. I do post a link on YouTube to my blog where I have pictures so everyone can get a close up view. I would love to bring the camera closer but at the moment due to some dental issues I don’t feel comfortable zooming in on my face. I’m working on getting everything fixed but dental work is so expensive.I appreciate the input and I know it comes from a good place. Maybe I’ll switch over to the over head view for a bit and see how everyone likes that.

      I am in awe of the Linus ladies that only make crumb quilts. It’s a bit of a process and while I enjoy making them I’m not sure if I would enjoy making that many. Although it is a great use of scraps. I think my issue would be in the quilting process. Maybe a long arm would be easier but on my domestic machine quilting over all those seams can be a pain.
