How to Knit the Magic Loop Method

Helllooo!! Are you ready to start knitting in the round?

I’m here to show you my favorite method for doing so: The Magic Loop Method!

You can use this to knit socks and sweaters, sleeves and collars, cowls, hats, mittens, etc. Anything that is in the round.

You’ll need:

1 long circular needle (about 32″-40″)
Yarn

I am using a skein of my Pearlescent Worsted weight yarn in colorway Laguna.

It’s soft and shimmering and a mix of superwash merino wool and silk. It’s hand-dyed by our lovely team of dyers and this yarn base really takes the dye so well. It just radiates!

How to Start and Build an Online Business You Love – Part 2 of 3

Welcome back to my 3-part series on how to start and build an online business that you love.

If you missed Part 1, you can find that here. It helps you find your Passion (your big WHY – your VISION) as well as discusses the Practical side (the WHAT).

Once you have a pretty good idea of what to sell (which can honestly be the hardest part but don’t worry, you’ll get it!), it’s time to start getting down to the nitty gritty, listing those products for sale and making sure your idea is viable.

Things to keep in mind […]
