Do It Yourself magazine

A few months ago, I was invited to teach a large group of people from Team DIY (of Do It Yourself Magazine) at Meredith Corporation here in Des Moines. It was pretty much the coolest teaching experience ever. And if you open up the Winter issue of DIY magazine, you'll see photos from our knitting Crafternoon on the editor's letter page!


DIY is a Better Homes and Gardens special interest publication that is the can-do destination for the home enthusiast who seeks DIY inspiration, step-by-step instructions, and creative, affordable projects to transform home and garden spaces. And if you haven't picked up a copy before, you should definitely check it out.

This was a pretty big crew to teach, so I brought along my very good friends Amy and Sarah to help me out.

Amy and Sarah taught me how to knit several years ago, so they were the perfect knitters for the job. The three of us had so much fun hanging out with this lovely group!

My pals at Hill Vintage & Knits supplied lots of super bulky Malabrigo Rasta yarn for our new knitters to practice with.

Definitely grab yourself a copy of the winter issue of Do It Yourself magazine and check out all of the diy home and holiday projects you'll find inside. I'm especially fond of the forest fauna placecard holders on page 12, the succulent place settings on page 14 and the awesomely huge collection of handmade gifts ideas/kits on page 18. But there's a lot more in this issue so check it out for yourself.
