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!

Finish #2: Felted Oven Mitts




I finished my second and third knitting projects yesterday. I learned a few new techniques like knitting in the round, which I really enjoyed, and how to use double pointed needles to taper the tops and the thumbs.  I spent a few hours at the Yarn Lounge on several Sundays for some extra instruction, and the first mitt took a few weeks to complete.  The second mitt I did all on my own and took only three days from start to finish.

Using sticks and yarn to create beautiful things still has me intrigued. It's so interesting how the different stitches and patterns come together.  I find it mesmerizing.




The mitts were huge and floppy after the initial knitting but with some heat and agitation in the washing machine they shrunk and felted up nicely.


The pattern for this project can be found here. I used three skeins of worsted weight malabrigo wool in a butter yellow, cream, and orange. For my next project I think I will knit a pair of pom pom peds.

  1. I crochet and I love watching things come together as well! It is also so lovely to have things like oven mitts that will be used on a daily basis and you can be proud you made them every time you use them!

  2. These are adorable. I am not in the slight bit craft, so I totally admire that after a lesson you were able to complete the second one totally on your own. And, they're super cute.
