Well, well, well. What do we have here.
If it isn’t… the year Kate heretofore nominated as the one she will give YouTube an honest go.
Let me be clear: this video is not “quality content”, and I sure as heck have a thing or two to learn about lighting and focus (and apparently sound the eff is that buzzing noise in the background I didn’t hear that until I exported?!), but perhaps it can serve as something to keep you company as you knit, or make dinner, or whatnot.
Thanks for your patience while I learn :)
In this video, I’m walking you through (most) of the knits I’ve made for myself over the last 9 years. I wanted to reflect on what I’ve made and talk about whether I actually wear them or not (and why) and what I’ve learned about picking yarn and pattern styles. Because I’m doing this new thing where I try to…. make stuff I’ll actually wear. Revolutionary!

[8;45] Tunisian Crochet Neckwarmer (self-drafted pattern). I also wore this one out right after filming, and I remember why I didn’t love it—it stretched out a fair bit while I was wearing it and started falling down (from body heat?)
