Was it really only one short year ago that we were on the J&E Rigging, sailing Penobscot Bay, eating delicious food and knitting? We are so sorry to miss this year, and especially Captains Annie and Jon's last season with the boat. Looking forward to next year, though - click the link in the bio for details about the 2021 season! #maineknittingcruises #mainewindjammer # @ Rockland, Maine

This is my "dish cloth basket" - everything I need to whip out another quick project, in a portable container in case I feel like watching the garden while I knit! #dishclothknitting

It's hard to find time for knitting these days. Want to spend all day working in (and admiring) the garden. From the bee balm and hydrangeas to the surprisingly pink astilbe, it's one perfect gift after another. Next post will be... knitting! #gardening #beebalm #hydrangeas #astilbe @ Glen Arm, Maryland

First peonies! All of my plants were planted just last fall so having even a few if them bloom this first season is very lucky! These are my favorite flowers, and the colors, well, I never met a pink I didn't love! #peoniesaremyfavorite #peoniesofinstagram #peoniesandknitting

Do you prefer "knit-to-pattern" or "modified-to-suit"? I often knit as instructed (LOVE @woodhouseknits patterns!!) But sometimes like to switch it up. This is Cascata by Filipa Carneiro, and I made 2 mods: instead of letting the increases on the left side get too wide, I strategically made some decreases to offset the expanding fabric, so it fits relatively the same on both sides, and I did an icord nind off at the jem to keep it from rolling and make it look neat. What do you do? #modifiedknits #filipacarneirodesigns #knittingforfun

Happy Mother's Day! I miss my mom today, but right now all the memories are good. She adored fragrant flowers, so these are especially for her. Enjoy your day, and (virtually) hug your mom!

The best $42 I ever spent: A single ball of yarn

The author says knitting is..."a place where I can go to come back to myself and replenish my reserves and serve as a reminder that this is one action I can perform completely and well, even when everything else feels so out of my control." This is exactly why we are knitting right now.

Knitting has always brought me comfort when I can’t see what’s ahead.

Kay Pruitt's love of posting DIY videos exceeds her actual skill in this comedic tutorial gone wrong. Written by and starring Stephnie Weir.

Oh, the first azaleas are soooo close to blooming! But while we wait, there are still tiny creeping phlox and a stray Jack-in-the-pulpit to catch our eye. And of course, some azaleas just can't wait...leaves still unraked or no! @ Glen Arm, Maryland

The house we bought near Baltimore has 66 azalea bushes planted around the house. We had no idea what they would look like in the Spring. The first photo is today, the second is a preview of the next 2-3 weeks. I wish so much I was not the only one to see them. But fabulous pics will be coming soon. #azaleasinbloom @ Baltimore County, Maryland

The dish cloths just keep coming! So many great patterns, and a great way to practice learning a new stitch or technique. And when you're done, you've got something to help keep the house clean. Stay positive and knit! #dishcloths #practicalknitting #dishrag #knittingforfun

If you are using this time to stash dive, you may unearth some gems like I did - and feel the urge to jump online and order a tad more, just to make sure your supply is adequate for well, let's just say...a while.

Feeling a little anxious about going out, but still need some additional fiber in your diet? (Knitters and crocheters cannot live by stash alone!) Many of my favorite local(ish) indie dyers have online shops! @neighborhoodfiberco also has free shipping. Left to right in the photo, @solitudewool , @fibrestudio , @kimdyesyarn ,@littlefoxyarn . There are many, many others, so let your fingers do the shopping👍 #supportindiedyers #knittingathome #knittingwhileisolated

We've started our fair isle KAL in anticipation of our September visit to Scotland and I've made it to Chart C of Harriet's Hat and managed to complete A Gift of Thistle.
