this year, I'll ...

Learn to knit! (You know you want to.) Is learning a new skill or taking a crafty class on your list of resolutions? Because I'd say 2011 is your year.
Ephemera, one of the loveliest shops in Des Moines' East Village, just posted their new class schedule for January 2011. And once again they'll be offering a two-class beginner knitting session. (Check out Ephemera's class calendar here.)
You could join the likes of these awesome ladies and go out into the world as a full-fledged knitter. And purl-er.  ;)
I promise you can do it. Even if you're saying to yourself right now "I'm not crafty." Or "I'm not patient." Or "I could never do that." I swear, you really really can! You'll be so glad you did. Go here to find out more or sign up for class. Hope to see you there.


  1. Happy 2011 Jen!
    Come stay with me one weekend and let's knit.
    I was thinking how fun it'd be if you and Lo flew out when the westher is warmer so she could swim? awhile ago I told Vee she should fly out with her two littles and we'd all go to Disneyland.
    Hope you're having a great day!

  2. Happy New Year Jen! I hope all goals will be achieved and dreams come true in 2011!!

  3. i picked up knitting in college and am just now coming back to it now that i am pregnant with baby #2 and in the mood for some serious crafts. i found your blog because i'm trying out your gaptastic cowl from - thanks so much for posting that beautiful pattern for free! i hope to see more of your patterns soon.

  4. Visiting from FN! I love knitting, even though I'm a little slow. My goal for this year is to learn to knit in the round. It's time I made more than square or rectangular things!


Thanks for stopping by and saying hi!
