This past weekend I managed to put in some serious knitting productivity time, and it was great. Or, more accurately – what I did was catch up on about twelve hours of unwatched television, and had my knitting in my hands the whole time while I did that. As a result my brain may now […]


I don’t mean to brag, but I have now achieved approximately 0.4 completed granny square afghans over the past 5 months, and this is what I’ve learned. 1. Don’t plan the project  out too far in advance. Just dive right in spontaneously, this isn’t like those hats or scarf projects that you really want to carefully […]


One of the odd things about knitting design is the delay that happens between knitting something up and its final release to the world. This summer I had the pleasure of knitting up another pattern for Twist Collective, and last week it went live! I’m so pleased to show you my Bonspiel cardigan, featured in […]


Greetings, knitter friends! I am writing this on the flip side of my move, which went pretty well as moves go, and am now adjusting to a new pace of life in the ‘big city’ back in Toronto. It’s been several years since I lived in Toronto itself, and I’m remembering how it is both […]


When I headed off to Rhinebeck earlier this month, I brought a few different projects with me, as one does for a knitting weekend. My Jurisfiction cardigan in progress, some Jaywalker socks that I ended up finishing on the trip down, and a bag of selected Knit Picks Palette yarn from what is, admittedly, a […]


Knitting friends, it’s been a whirlwind couple of weeks!

It’s been a week or so of behind-the-scenes busy-ness around these parts, knitter friends, and for mostly non-knitting reasons! I have, at long last, secured a full-time job offer starting in a couple of weeks, and have had a lot to do to get ready for it, before I head out for Rhinebeck in a […]


If you’ve been knitting for a longer amount of time – long enough that you’ve done enough knitting projects to think of yourself as “A Knitter,” then you may every so often start to find yourself in a rut. You still love knitting, you still look fondly at the yarns on your shelf and the […]


Despite having finished 2 projects this month I still have no shortage of Works In Progress on the needles, so I’ve been trying to stick to the willpower as much as possible and not cast on twelve new sweaters all at once just because it’s September. But a girl can only hold out for so […]


Well my fellow knitter friends, it turns out that after about 3 months of not at all monogamous knitting time, it’s possible to still finish that pair of cabled socks! I told myself this summer that one of my goals was to knit a non-boring pair of socks (i.e. not Nice Ribbed socks and not […]
