From Beth: Katie knits, bakes, gardens and sews some fantastic items for her children (she also has some great tatting work and so much more on Flickr). Don’t miss the blog she started in June to document her Daily Thread! Katie did a comprehensive pattern review of the Favorite Things Little Jammies pattern, with lots of great tips for modifications to make the finished products extra-special. Enjoy!

From Katie: I am a stay-at-home mom to two children, DJ and AJ. DJ is four and AJ is 2-1/2. They keep me busy, as do the family business and some part-time consulting for my former employer. I like to knit, sew, read and bake. And blog! Most of my sewing is done while DJ has “quiet time” and AJ pretends to nap. (Or, maybe I’m the one pretending she’s napping!) Regardless, most days I usually have an hour or so to indulge in a little sewing therapy.
