This blog is devoted to handknitting for little boys. I’m the mother of two, currently ages 10 weeks and almost 2 years. I’m also a compulsive knitter and occasionally a designer. I’ll probably blog about other things on occasion, because I’m a talker, but I’m currently pretty absorbed in life with little boys. And knitting.

You can also find me on Ravelry under the user name rainbowgoblin.

  1. Hey, thanks for contacting me about the cable design. You’re more than welcome to use it and I can’t really claim that I invented it as I found variations of it from different sources, i.e. Verena, Barbara Walker, Mon Tricot etc…One thing you might try is working an elongated purl stitch right before you work your 8/8 cable and another one right after. This will help those cable stitches stretch across. I never pursued actually knitting up that sweater because it’s too dang hot here in Austin! I can’t wait to see your hat design and please size it for adults, too! Good luck, Mary (MaryMary on Ravelry)


    • Thanks for your reply! It’s going to be a grownup hat for sure. You should plan a vacation somewhere cooler for an excuse to knit it (New Zealand’s nice… )


  2. I love your blog. It reminds me of my step-daughter, who is not a knitter, but who has two, now 14 and 12′ and your blogs reminds me of when they were little. Yours are so cute, and I like that you photograph them even when they are not perfectly ‘poised’. Love your precision with language.


    • Thank you! My mother has a picture of me, probably just over age 1, sitting in the garden with half a cricket hanging out of my mouth. She has often commented that the picture is a testament to the sort of mother she is: rather than trying to stop me from eating a cricket, she grabbed a camera. I love the pictures of my kids fussing or crying (also, I think she was a terrific mother, and experimenting with crickets is just fine).
