To Boldly...Knit? You bet!

Colleen Davis is not your ordinary knitter. She's the mom of a friend of a friend of mine :) and lives in San Diego. Wow, I wish I lived nearer to her to get, via instruction or osmosis, just a thimble of her creativity with knitting needles and yarn. The great news is, Colleen just launched http://www.toboldlyknit.com/ and it is packed with patterns, workshop info and at-home instruction dvds and cds. I know it’s only June, but I've got my eye on “Introduction to Freeform Knitting” for the top of my Christmas list :). What a way to use up my stash of yarn - woohoo!

If you’re a knitter, a wanna-be knitter, or you know a knitter, Get Thee to Colleen’s shop! for some real eye candy. And be sure to click on all the category links to see all the photos of her very neat pieces.

She also has an Etsy shop, http://www.toboldlyknit.etsy.com/. (Photos above are from Colleen's website with her permission.)

Hey Christie,

Looks like some of my blogging buddies have stopped by to give you some bloggy love. That's great!

I love that knitted rug - such fun. I can make my eyes all squinty and see that in my front hall. Yup, I see it there right now... :)

Yes they have, thanks to you! And be careful with that squinting thing. You may be able to imagine yourself right out of your bank account!
