    Here is a run-down of my week – an overview, because lots happened and there will be more details later on specific things I ‘ve been working on Craftsy filming – Such a great experience, and I thank everyone at Craftsy central who helps make my dreams come true.  I loved preparing and presenting this […]

  • Astoria Sock KAL – the 8th color

    Posted on September 20, 2014 by annetarsia in Annetarsia Knits, Blog.

    A bit ago, you will remember that I asked for help in picking an 8th color for a special kit to knit the Astoria sock, teaming with Kate Bachus of A Hundred Ravens.  For a refresher, see here. There was no real consensus, as all the colors Kate dyed as possibilities were wonderful.  But there […]

    Annetarsia challenge – switching knitting direction

    Posted on September 16, 2014 by annetarsia in Annetarsia Knits, Blog.

    Knitters? Blindly follow patterns? What is the fun in that? Especially Annetarsia patterns, as I expect people to use them as a springboard for their own inspirations. So, I was thrilled to get my first inquiry about how to turn the Kelly sweater from Annetarsia knits from being knit from the hem up, to knitting […]

    “Diagonal Ribbons” is ready to wear!  This type of deconstructed garment is a bit out of my wheelhouse, which is partly why I decided to knit it.  Because the stainless steel sections are transparent, what you put under it really matters.                   The sections are all a […]

    You all know that I stay busy.  I am a business owner and practice optometry full-time, teach knitting nationally, released “Annetarsia Knits” this summer, and am a serious long-distance runner.  “When do you sleep?” is a question I am often asked. I’ve managed to juggle all of my demanding projects with the aid of great […]

  • Writing Tips

    Who knew writing was hard? Creating Annetarsia Knits was one of the most rewarding and challenging projects of my life. Here are some of the things I learned about writing along the way. It is easier to edit than write, so get something written and make it better, later. The first draft of everything is […]

  • Time for Personal knitting!

    Posted on September 8, 2014 by annetarsia in Annetarsia Knits, Blog, Classes.

    Finding the time to knit is a constant problem for professional knitters.  There is so much to do, and so little time to do it.  It’s true for all knitters, but at least if it isn’t a job, you are in control of what you knit and how long you take to finish.  When you […]
