It’s that time of year, dear knitters! Or at least for those of us in more northern climes – the time when we remember what it feels like to not wear socks all the time, when it’s about to get so hot and humid for a while that we will completely forget what cold feels […]

My lace cardigan, the partner to the pullover I finished a few weeks ago, is taking shape and I’m pleased to report that I’ve reached the sleeves portion of it. As much as I am enjoying the colour and the yarn and really look forward to having the finished thing, both to wear and publish […]


I don’t know if I’ve confessed this to you, blog, or if I’ve just not confessed it lately, but in the vast world of knitting skills, one thing I have still not been able to drill down into my neurons is Kitchener stitch. It’s just one of those things. After only a decade of consistent […]


Last week a few of you asked me how I managed to fit so much knitting into my life. While I can’t say that I try to speed knit a sweater every week (or every month), I do manage to turn out a couple of finished projects each month, and not just small ones. So […]

Although socks are edging their way back onto the racetrack over here at Knitting to Stay Sane, sweater knitting has certainly not been abandoned, never fear. The ‘two-week sweater’ did indeed turn into a ‘three-week sweater’, which is super awesome in my world. While it cuts a less imposing figure on the dress form (try […]

Spring is upon us around these parts, so much so that we might be firmly into patio-sitting weather this coming weekend. In fact, I’ve considered that I could probably take the pair of emergency fingerless mitts out of my handbag for good, it’s looking so much like spring. Amazing, the outdoors is warm and the […]

Well dear knitter friends, after two weeks of knitting I am pleased to report that I have… …most of a sweater. The lion’s share of it is done – I have the body and two sleeves, and I’m now joined up and am working on the yoke. Once I split for the front neckline it’ll […]

My “two week sweater” efforts are continuing, dear knitter friends, as I continue knitting away, and trying to make up for a bit more non-knitting weekend time than I might have liked. Although non-knitting time does assist in, you know, helping one’s arms and wrists not to fall off, so there is that. So far […]

In between breaks from attempting to finish a fingering weight sweater in two weeks (don’t worry, I really am doing things besides knitting, I promise!), I’ve got a new spring/fall pullover pattern to share with you. This is my Dundas Pullover, available on Ravelry and Patternfish now! This is a casual, almost ‘sweatshirt style’ sweater, […]

April is here, the sunshine is suddenly not only bright but warm, and things are ticking along here in knitting world. I will actually have a spring sweater pattern available shortly, and I am really looking forward to sharing with you hopefully in a few days. In the meantime, I am already ticking away on […]
