Welcome to Project Knitway or should I say Project Renottaway? It's my cyberspace place to post my favorite things...thoughts about family and creativity and design. One of my favorite things is making stuff, specifically clothing and accessories from fiber and metal. So you'll see a lot about that here. I also love spending time with my family, so there will be a bit about that too. When I'm not with my family or in my studio, I am most likely at nextdoor, my store. I have always had a store ever since I was a young woman. I started with a weaving store called the niddy noddy in Waukesha eons ago. I ended with nextdoor in Brookfield. It's my dream store filled with great clothing, especially denim. Really nice women work and shop there, it's a fun place to be. You can find us there every day and online at www.shopatnextdoor.com So come for a visit here and there.

A Perfect Day

I have always said the perfect day for me is a combination of exercise, creativity, relaxation and a good book or movie. So when I returned from my walk, I headed into my studio. Remember my window shades? Well I decided to screen print and stencil some designs on them. It was great fun and I really love the results.

The shades are just velcroed to the glass, so I can take them down at anytime with no difficulty or unsightly mess. The whole printing experience was so much fun that I decided to treat myself to a new toy, a thermofax machine. It promises to be lots of fun, an easy way of making silk screens for more printing projects. So I'll be sharing all that with you soon. Hope you had a perfect day too!
