Hi! I’m glad you stopped by! My name is Jenny Williams and I am mom to 2 awesome boys that I’m crazy about. I am also a knitwear designer. The drawing is one I did of my youngest son during a nap roughly 10 years ago (heavy sigh). He had Carter pj’s that said “If they only stayed little a little longer”. So true, so true. Now, the big son is soon headed off to college. How did that happen?? Exciting times for a proud mama.
I love the whole process of coming up with something new. Perusing stitch dictionaries, sketching, swatching, blocking — the whole 9 yards! I get bored easily, so I almost always include something to keep it interesting — cables, stranded colorwork, lacework — anything to avoid acres of stockinette. Seeing a design come to life is so satisfying. And having other people enjoy them too is the BEST!
When I don’t have to concentrate, I daydream while I knit. I think about my kids, now and when they were little, who they will be when they are grown. I think about trips we’ve taken, places I’d like to go and what we might have for dinner. I run movies in my head or hear music from my favorite radio station, 40’s on 4 (XM 73). One thing I can count on, I will be more relaxed after I have knit for a while than when I began. Pretty sweet!!
