Hi, I’m Alli and I’ve been knitting off and on for over two decades, but for the past two years it’s gotten super serious. Before that I had one scarf I knit on and off for eternity. I’ve now knitted various hats, scarves, shawls, and kid sized sweaters. I’m married and living in Michigan. I daylight as a software engineer and I have an almost-4-year-old. I think having him jump-started my knitting obsession: I wanted to make him a sweater. I did, and I’ve been learning more and more knitting skills ever since.

Trying out a hat I made for my mom.

I’m not the fastest or most prolific knitter, but I’m continually learning and practicing. This blog is intended to be a documentation of the skills I learn and to help plan (and drool over) future knitting projects.

I also dye yarn: I’m not selling it at this point, but you can see some in the header image on this site! I absolutely adore dyeing and dye way faster than I can knit it up. I’m sure I’ll be documenting some of that here.
