    1. hahhaha, oh love me, please love me. I do plan on splainin myself some more on the knitting here soon. It has completed eluded me for years until I saw a visual lace pattern, and it somehow made a lot more sense to me than all of the written patterns that I have tried to do (for about 5 seconds). I am a visual learner, and watching a video helped me immensely!

  5. Everything is beautiful, AM! I'm curious, though. Is the linen your second linen release or is the stuff that's due in January being pushed back to April? I'm so excited to get my hands on the new voiles and rayon.

  7. Oh, AMH linens!! I can't wait for those. I am also shocked that that is your first knitting project. I haven't advanced past the knit and purl.

  8. Hold on.
    That? That gorgeous piece of loveliness is your "first" knit project?
    (in my most melodramatic-back of the hand to my forehead voice...) Life is unfair!
    This post is full of beauty. I am happy, at least we get to enjoy seeing what you make, Anna Maria... your art is a real treat for the senses.

  9. I'm working on knitting a scarf with a pattern almost like that!!
    I absolutely love your pinch pot collection. I have one my oldest son made an I treasure it.

  10. Ha! First off, you're knitting lace, no less! I still can't knit lace - I'm like Mr. Bennett, "No lace, Mrs. Bennett, I beg you!" Jeesh!

    Well, the sky's the limit for you as far as knitting goes if you can knit lace for your first project. :D

  11. I had to laugh when I saw your photo on Flickr and it said your first ever knitting. Oh to be as awesome as Anna Maria Horner. If knitting ever eluded you, then you have put it firmly in its place.

  12. I'm totally impressed by your knitting project. I started learning how to knit last year, after giving up on the idea years ago. I can relate to being a visual learner and have also found a few video tutorials that just seem to add such clarity to the process. I'll check out the link you provided. Thanks for sharing!

  13. Eleni gave me one of the needle point projects from your book and since I am at home with food poisoning, I'm already half-way done! I've never done needle point before but i LOVE it already!

  17. Just lovely, all of it! I love your palette:-) Can't believe that is your first knitting project! I think I stuck with garter stitch square things for a year before I even dared try to purl;-)
