meet Joel

I came across this today, and since I’ve already announced that the next episode in my mitts series is going to be connected to paintings, this seem to come in at the right exact moment!

Merchant of Venice by Joel Henriques

Joel is an amazing stay-at-home dad who does lots of fun and creative things with his kiddos and is not shy about sharing free tutorials and patterns so that you can do something similar with your little ones (or just for yourself, ’cause it’s so fun!). My heart jumps every time I see a new post on his blog. And today he announced the opening of his art show, which made me take a closer work at his paintings, and my friends, I was stunned. I want one of these for my future perfect home.

Bird Tree by Joel Henriques

While the Trees are my favorites by far, there is plenty of other stuff that is worth your attention. You can find Joel’s recent works here. I hope you enjoy them!

I started knitting completely by accident, when I was visiting my parents for a holiday in 2008. On a boring Sunday afternoon, I decided to dig through their stash of books to see if there was anything interesting to take back to my apartment. A knitting manual happened to be one of the books I found. I got curious, my mom immediately dug out her old needles and yarn stash (which she hadn’t used in a decade at least), and in a few minutes we were both casting on - she by memory, I by following the instructions from the book… :) Since I normally prefer learning from books, this was ideal.. I took the book home with me, and very very soon - I was an addict.
