Hey fam! Apologies for disappearing from the yarn-o-sphere! I’m going to keep this update short. I’ve recently embarked on a journey to get an ADHD diagnosis. A friend of mine has been on a similar journey this year, and learning
The short version of this post: I’ve decided to cancel the weekly schedule for GABMAL pattern releases.
I have a confession to make… I didn’t mean to vanish these last 10 weeks. A lot has happened over the last two months in both my personal, professional, and crafting lives, and I want to take a moment to chat about them a bit.
Most of us know that negative self talk can, of course, negatively effect how we feel. But you know what I’ve learned? The opposite is equally as true, and positive internal dialogue can be a very powerful tool in your mental health utility belt (and yes, I am picturing a Batman-inspired utility belt).
Sometimes it’s hard to remember happy times, and I’ve found that one of the best ways to remind myself of those moments is to keep photos around my home and workplace. (No really, they’re everywhere.) As we focus on our feelings and try to find more joy in our lives, I invite you to try hanging up a favorite picture or two in places you frequent.

This is a great square to start with if you’re new to double-knitting as the design isn’t super challenging, and it’s a very satisfying design to watch come together!
