New Year's Project

Hi Knitters, I am Louise from Wildflower Wool, a knitter who loves knitting and teaching others how to knit. When I am not knitting you can find me blogging, tweeting, and sharing knitting patterns, giveaways and pictures on Facebook.

The Bleak Midwinter

Erm, Winter? We need to talk.

I know you're just getting settled in, but...I'm sorry.  I think we need to take a break.

These mittens were begun with one idea in mind, texting.  The convertible flap on the hand is the perfect solution for keeping a hand warm, but still

Leftovers

When I cast off my Faded Cables Pullover and was itching to start something quick and easy, serendipity came into play as I had just gotten a hold of the book, Luxury Knits. Inside is the cutest pattern, the Striped Band hat. One of those quick to knit, easy to modify, and open to lots of color choices sort

Patient Paula Plodding Through the Posies

Legend has it that when a family member noticed what a quiet baby I was - never fussing, just patiently waiting for someone to give me a little attention - he dubbed me Patient Paula. It stuck. Until now, anyway.

Where is that doggone UPS truck with my pumpkin colored Wool Roving? Sure, the Labor Day weekend may have delayed

Ridin' Shotgun

As I've been working on my Fading Cables Pullover, I've kept looking for ways to speed this project along. You see, here in Seattle fall has arrived, earlier than usual and this has put me in a sweater sort of mood. So I've been knitting a couple of hours each evening and as much as I can squeeze into my
