5 For Friday

1. So I joined a knitting class at the last minute last Thursday night. It is awesome. I've learned to cast on, knit and purl. Let me just say that 'you tube' is a wonderful thing. The ultimate goal is to make a cowl neck infinity scarf thing. For the past week I've been in the practice stages with some yellow wool but I managed to get out on an excursion last week with Cathie to buy some thicker, prettier wool and some new needles to call my very own. I noticed an awesome tutorial on Design Sponge this week as well for knitting a cowl. Check it out here. 

2. I've been slowly working on my class layouts for February's 'Keeping Track of Life'. Check out this little sneak.

I'm so excited about this class. 

3. I'm also pretty excited to co-host a birthday party at The Paperie tomorrow with W. We're going to have a photo booth and make layouts with fourteen 9-year-olds and it's going to be awesome. I'm pumped.

4.Liz Kartchner had some pretty cool news this week. She started a new site called 'Paper Party'. It looks intriguing! I'm sure I'll be lurking around there from time to time. It looks like it will also be an awesome site for my 'Inspired by' theme here on the blog. I can't wait to see some of the challenges and projects.

5. I'm on the hunt for a coffee table-one that can easily have the legs taken off-for a DIY project. If you are local and have one that you are looking to get rid of I would be happy to take it off your hands. There might even be some treats from Taffety in it for you.

Have a great weekend!



  1. Great job learning to knit I always would love to but can't find the time. Love the sneak it looks really cute.

  2. I took up knitting big chunky scarves to keep my hands busy in the evening so I didn't s ack as much, I still fund a way to snack and no one wi,k wear the 20 scarves I made, lol

  3. Have fun at the birthday party, love your sneak peek :)
