Robyn of Minimalist Knitter had a baby boy Friday. She asked a few of us yarn folk to fill her blog with posts for a few weeks while she’s nuturing her that adorable Owen.

Reviewing the stash

Gladly — I accepted. It is August, after all. August is the month, when as my friend Scandinavian Tim* knows, I start thinking about what I’m going to knit and sew for Christmas gifts.

Cleaning up the studio

yeah. that’s really a photo of my desk last week.

See how I transformed this¬†into a productive guide to planning your holiday knits. I’ll have a couple posts on her site in the next week, including organizing a yarn stash, finding appropriate patterns and planning your project time wisely.

Congrats Robyn!


*Scandanavian Tim is Salty Senor’s alter ego. One in which he reminds me of my purely ridiculous wound-too-tight ways. Like planning Christmas in August.
