A little love for MM Knits

Two really cool things happened this week that brought a little attention to Mary Marie Knits.

First, a local magazine, Diablo, featured my giant pouf in a collection of handmade gifts.

And then CasaSugar ran a little interview and tour of my house.

I had so much fun chatting with Elka and taking stock of all the pieces in my house I’ve made or collected over the years. And the dogs made sure to find their way into as many photos as possible!

Mike got home from a business trip and the dogs took turns cuddling up to him. When one of us is gone, Reggie will spend long amounts of time staring at the door in case we come back.

One of my customers asked for poufs with a more rounded shape, and you know what? I think I like it better than what I have been doing. I try to be open to custom orders because they so often lead to new products or new designs.

I’ve been getting a ton of orders for rope knits, so I ordered rope that comes on a giant spool. I put a spool of thread next to it for comparison sake. Ha!

And how about this little box of yummy?

It’s from Phil’s Sliders in downtown Berkeley. You really can’t argue with two tiny burgers and rectangular tater tots. They inspired me to make my own California burgers this week.


It’s all OK if you have a wheat bun, right?

I have been so burger crazy lately. Must be all those meatless years catching up to me.
