Thank you all for the lovely sweater comments on my previous post! It’s great to get fall started with a nice cardigan. Now that that one is well off the needles, my knitting brain wants me to cast on immediately for four more sweaters, naturally. (Specifically, another Venezia pullover, another Jurisfiction cardigan for me (the […]

I’m pleased to announced my first new knitting design of the coming fall/winter season! My Retreat cardigan pattern is now live and available on Ravelry, and on Patternfish as well. It is available for $7.00 for the entire first month of its release, after which it will bump up to $8.00, to be in line […]

Sept11-Cardigan1

It’s been a finishing party around here for the last couple days, as I finally get my latest sweater design prepped and ready for both pattern release and general wear (I’ll have a new sweater to wear to Rhinebeck, which pleases me greatly). The finishing part of sweaters always takes longer than I’d like, emotionally, […]

Sept8-Buttons

Around here right now everyone is talking about back to school, and vaguely aware of incoming fall seasonal things despite being in the muggy fog of a heat wave that has not let up for a week. I myself am not heading back to school, but I am starting to think very keenly about a […]

It’s the last gasps of summer around these parts – Labour Day weekend hits this weekend and it’s back to school soon, and the temperatures have hit peak heat and humidity just to make sure we all realize that it’s still summer for a wee little bit longer. I mean sure, it’s also just over […]

Sweater knitting season will soon be upon us, my dear knitter friends, and if you’re like me you’re already knitting twelve new fall sweaters in your mind. Well, I am also currently knitting 1 sweater in actual reality, but the twelve in my mind are really super too and if I could cast on all […]

Aug18-GrannySquares2

Progress on the granny squares blanket continues, my knitting friends! Well, today we shall be crochet friends, I suppose. I am now on my 62nd square (of an ideal 304, I have decided), which means I am making pretty tidy work of them. There is still the small matter of all the squares still needing […]

This week I’ve been spending some time sorting out some small ‘invisible corners‘ in my bookshelves, pulling out books that I don’t need or use anymore, and ditching papers that don’t need to stick around. There are a couple of shelves of knitting stuff in this area that I haven’t touched in years. Friends, I […]

Cardigan2-Aug11

I have made peace with the fact that the month of August, for me at least, is going to involve as much knitting time as I can possibly fit into it – and also still a bit of crochet, as will be the case for the next little while as the granny squares take shape. […]

Earlier this summer I cast on for the Liberty blanket, which is a big gorgeous project that I’ve wanted to make for years. You would think that would really be enough in the Large Projects With Indefinite Timelines category, and I really did think it would be too. But then I went on vacation with […]
