The BoldHeartMama desires to enjoy living out the choices that she’s made for herself and for her family. She is a relentless learner: curious, inquisitive, and open to the possibilities of her life and of the human condition. She understands that there isn't one right way—she asks questions that dig deeper to make sense of it all and to find her own path.

She pays attention to and nurtures whatever it is she really cares about, letting go of the rest (for now) knowing she can't do and be everything all at once. She embraces her imperfections in favor of "good enough"—her imperfect self, her imperfect home, her imperfect mothering, her imperfect desires—and she never stops evolving as a woman and mother. She is a BoldHeart, authentic and true to herself.

The BoldHeartMama knows there is only this one life and she's all in. She is present and engaged and making things happen. Her intuition is her guide. She seeks to be inspired and relies on her creativity and her resourcefulness to solve the big and little challenges that she and her family face together as they navigate their relationships and their world.

The BoldHeartMama is willing to take calculated risks to make her biggest dreams come true. She is living out her BoldHeart in the moment, making small moves and taking little steps that add up, and she's cultivating a good life for herself and her family in the process. Read More!

My first finish

The scarf that I started back in March is finally complete. It's been slow going, but that's one of the reasons I'm a fan of knitting. I do a little whenever I can, and make progress here and there when things are quiet.

I blocked it at the end of last week, which perfected the shape. While it is too warm for a scarf now, I'll look forward to wrapping up with it in the Fall.

The Pattern:
Row 1: knit
Row 2: knit
Row 3: knit
Row 4: knit
Row 5: knit
Row 6: knit front and back of each stitch
Row 7: purl
Row 8: knit
Row 9: purl
Row 10: knit
Row 11: purl
Row 12: knit two together

I used one skein of worsted weight malabrigo merino wool.


  1. So very feminine...I love it! Next stop, your own Etsy shop? :-) I bet you could have a lot of fun experimenting with patterns and lengths. My sister has been knitting one for Lillian and I can't wait to see it! You both are so creative :-) I may have to commission one for myself..maybe I could trade for a crosstitch of a colorful predator for Roscoe ;-) heehee. I've though of finding cool crosstitch patterns and once I'm done picking coordinating fabric to surround it for a pillow...something like a floral or foilage crosstitch print surrounded by crushed velvet or dupioni silk and cool piping/ trims. I will let you know if that ever happens!!!

    1. Thanks Heidi! I think you will be more excited about my next project: felted pot holders!!!!! Same yarn, different colors...i'm pumped. Your idea for pillow covers sounds really fun. We should start a crafting circle ;) J and E can join in on the fun, too.

      PS. Roscoe would love a crosstitched leopard :).

  2. I love it! I want to make one, how many did you cast on?

    1. I think it was 24, based on how tightly I knit and with intent to knit a scarf 6 inches wide. It ended up being about 10 inches wide at the final section (I guess I'm not terribly consistent) but blocking helped even things out!

  3. Jacqueline, You are can do anything!Love, Mom...:)
