New Pattern: Jurisfiction Cardigan

So, for the past month or so I was knitting away on a cabled orange sweater for Rhinebeck. I’m happy to report that it got finished well in time for Rhinebeck, though in a fantastic piece of irony the Saturday of Rhinebeck ended up being far too warm to really get away with wearing sweaters, […]

A day in pictures

We came, we saw, we bought some yarn and petted some sheep. Today is my re-entry day post-Rhinebeck, and it’s always a bit of a struggle once you’re rested up again, to discover that you have to start the day without knitters or a cheese plate or a bunch of yarn shopping. (In defiance, I […]


Another year of Rhinebeck (New York Sheep and Wool Festival) has passed, and despite the fact that the amount of travel involved always leaves me feeling slightly run over, it was a great time. I saw knitterly friends, found some great yarn, and ate way too much food. (And I even finished the green cabled […]

Monday is for thinking about knitting

(Sub-heading: I am not entirely sure how this differentiates Monday from all the other days.) Thank you all so much for your comments about cable knitting in my previous post – many of you commented about how beautiful cables make the knitting look and how smart they make knitters look, even though once you get […]

A few things on a Friday

1. The sweater knitting continues around here, and I sincerely hope I am not about to jinx myself by saying such a thing out loud, but things might be well on track. I’m a couple of inches away from finishing the final piece of the cabled orange thing (which, yes indeed, I’ll be sure to […]

New Pattern: Chatelaine cardigan

I’ve been a bit remiss here on the blog, in that I haven’t formally introduced you to my latest self-published pattern. Allow me to rectify that, and present the Chatelaine cardigan, available in my Ravelry store or on Patternfish. This is what happened with that delicious pile of ‘sequoia’ coloured Madelinetosh Tosh Merino DK I […]

Seasonally appropriate

There is something about fall knitting, you know, there really is. A certain je ne sais quoi that comes from the coziness of warm wool in your hands, and getting to wear knitted things…and that sudden realization that it’s actually cold outside and “wait, WAIT, maybe I need to knit twelve pairs of fingerless mitts […]

Sanely overboard

So, here’s the thing. As of today it’s exactly two weeks until Rhinebeck weekend, which is pretty freaking great. The last time I had an actual vacationy weekend trip, or a trip of any kind outside of my own country for that matter, was Rhinebeck last year, so it’s a nice thing to look forward […]

A brief hat interlude

I really enjoyed reading everyone’s comments on the previous post about why fall knitting is so awesome. I am pretty much in agreement on all counts, that it’s so great to have cooler weather to draw you towards the warm and wooly knits – both to knit with and to wear! For the giveaway in […]
