Nicole Dupuis was one of the first people I met on Pinterest, back when I was a brand-new knitter (when you could actually meet people on Pinterest, before they buried the community layer). I admired her amazing taste and adored her now mostly dormant blog, and am so thrilled she’s just launched a new video podcast — I can’t wait to spend time with the first episode. It’s called The Gentle Knitter, and you can also find Nicole these days on Instagram @thegentleknitter.
Speaking of back in the day and things being buried, there are now more than four years of content sitting the archives on this here blog. As you know, I work hard to publish daily, and that means there’s an incredible amount of stuff that’s just as (hopefully) interesting and relevant as the day when it was published. Only it may have been published when there were 100 or 1000 people reading, meaning 99,000 of you might never have seen it! So this week while I’m on vacation — and from time to time going forward — I’m going to highlight some of those posts. Starting today with the very first installment of Our Tools, Ourselves, which featured the lovely Nicole Dupuis. It’s still one of my favorites, and I hope you’ll give it a read!
