I came across a picture of my daughter wearing a beanie my mother-in-law had crocheted. She made it in less than a hour using rainbow eyelash yarn. The beanie looked like a miniature wig for babies. We couldn’t help but laugh she looked adorable.
My mother-in-law and I spent a whole summer sharing crocheted ideas. She taught me new stitches while we drank coffee and watched my new babies toddle about. After watching her make the beanie it finally hit me, crocheting doesn’t have to be only practical, it can be humorous too. The spark was ignited and my love for making knots has grown ever since.
This is one of my many fond memories I have creating with loved ones. Sharing these moments with fellow crafters puts a smile on my face. Knowing that we all may have similar stories is what keeps the knotty world closer together.
Do you have a knotty memory you would like to share with us? Well we would love to hear about it! Till then Happy Knitting
My domain name doublepointedlove derived from my love of knitting. My first knit project was a pair of socks for my husband in which I had to use 5 DOUBLEPOINTED needles. If you ever worked with them it’s quite intimidating. I was determined to make these socks and when I finished I fell in LOVE. Now since then I have created scarves, hats, blankets, sweaters, whatever I could. I did this for many years and wanted to try something new. Now I’m creating paper flowers for photo backdrops and crepe paper flowers for bouquets. Hot glue burns and paper cuts are now my reality. I have made this my full time job and enjoy every second. And though my focus has changed since I started with this domain name I won’t change it because, it reminds me of how my love of art started from a set of double pointed needles!

Carding wool for the missus. I don’t crochet or spin, but she treats me as her carding monkey… 😦
Carding, to clean and separate and straighten the wool fibers so that it is ready to spin. I had to look that up. My knowledge of spinning isn’t great so thank you for the new vocabulary word. What a beautiful craft to share with each other.
