30 Days of Handknits

A comment on an Instagram photo of myself in a shawl I'd knit got me thinking...  They said I should post pics of all my knits and at first that seemed like a huge task, but the more I thought I came up with a way to do it in a manageable way.  

A quick pic every day for the next 30 days of me wearing at least one of my handknits.  So starting today and going up til Christmas Eve I am going to (try) and post these pics to Instagram with the hashtag #30daysofhandknits.  Maybe a little explanation of the item if I have the time or remember much about it.  There may be days where I'm wearing more than one item.  

Will you join me?  Either by participating or following me, I'd love it!  You can find me on Instagram as denmoma or become a fan of Denknits on Facebook...  I hope to see more handknits or maybe some 'love' or 'likes' :-)

Knittin' in the Mitten Retreat

I had the opportunity to attend the Knittin' in the Mitten retreat hosted by CoggieTM from the High Fiber Diet Podcast up in Grand Haven, MI last Saturday as a 'day tripper'.

I'll start with the good stuff, enabling with my market purchases!

A little more enabling in the form of the goodie bag that was given to each attendee...

And I have done some knitting over the past month, so a couple of finished objects (FOs) and a few works in progress (WIPs) are discussed.
