All the other things

Since putting down my granny square project for a much-needed pause (I’ll get to those borders and assembly in due course), I’ve found myself with a bit of knitting ADD. Or possibly whiplash from having focussed on such a large project for such an amount of time…Or another metaphor which I have yet to come […]

Finishing helps

It’s the closing of the year, my knitting blog friends, and it turns out (unsurprisingly) that a few days of food and indulgences and a bit of unscheduled time are pretty good for whatever knitting ennui may be ailing you. Add in finishing a few projects and we are golden. Since I last posted I […]

Twist Collective: Bonspiel cardigan

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 […]

Weak in the face of wool

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 […]

Finished Project: Rocaille Socks

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 […]

New Design: Jackson Creek Cardigan

Dear knitters, it’s been about a month since I introduced you to the first Urban Collection, Volume 2 patterns, which means it’s about time to add more to the mix! I’ve got a new cardigan pattern to show off to you today (never fear, it will shortly be followed by some accessory-sized companions as well). […]

Volume 2, Part 1

Last winter (yea verily, just slightly more than a year ago now), I launched the first patterns in my Urban Collection set (on Ravelry, on Patternfish), and lo and behold, I’ve decided to come back for another round. This week I’m kicking off the Urban Collection, Volume 2, with two patterns just right for the […]

New Pattern(s): Squall Set

So, winter’s coming on, and it’s about this time that I tend to take a little mental inventory of the items in the accessory basket (usually there’s something that went astray last year, never to return), and immediately wish I had about twelve more things to choose from. This is, let’s face it, at least […]

The weekend in knitting

This past weekend, I: 1. Did not let the bulky cabled hat idea get the better of me, and got pleasant results on attempt #4. It turned out to be not at all what I was planning when I started with attempt #1, but sort of morphed its way there, as knitting sometimes does. (I’m […]

The week in knitting

So, somewhere in there I blinked and the week passed by. I know that I was doing things in there, for sure, but now it’s Friday and somehow it seems like I should have more to show for it, knitwise. But I’ve made progress on a few things, stitches are accumulating, ideas are swirling around, […]
