Today is day 2 of our August 31 Days of Knitting Series and the stitch we are demonstrating is the Ascending Arrow Panel. This is another fun panel stitch that is done on a background of reverse stockinette stitch.
Woo hoo! Are you excited? I sure am! Today is the beginning of our August 31 Days of Knitting Series. Basically every 6 months I do a 31 Days of Knitting Challenge where I bring to you tutorial videos, stitch instructions and charts on 31 new stitches for the loom. This is the second series that we’ve done and I can’t tell you how much fun it is to discover new stitches, experiment with new techniques and then get to share it all with you!
Can you believe July is almost over? This last month I’ve spent almost every day getting ready for Augusts 31 Days of Knitting Series, and I feel like the entire month has just slipped right through my fingers.

Last week I shared with you my photos for the third photography challenge that I took up at Cascade Springs, and I took the photos for the fourth photo challenge on the same day. The 4th challenge in the book is to use a slower shutter speed, which is a fun part of the exposure triangle to play with.
It’s finally Friday! I don’t know about you but I’m exhausted! We’re going down to Panguitch this weekend for a camp trip and I can’t tell you how excited I am to go! Oh! Happy Pioneer Day! Do other states celebrate the day they became a state too? I’ve talked to some other friends about it and they say it’s not the same as Utah’s Celebration. I’d love to know how they celebrate it in your state!
How much you value and how well you treat your friends say so much about your life and who you are. Do you make friends easily? Does that make you less likely to keep the same friends for a long time? [Read more…]
If you’ve been wondering about the VS Chalk Based Paint colors, and are a little unsure as to what color would work best for your project, hopefully this post will help you! [Read more…]
Using VS Antiquing Powder to white wash your painted projects isn’t much different than applying any other color of antiquing powder, but it does give a dramatic effect. You can use any of the lighter colors to white wash, but White Cashmere is the most common color.
