Finished object: Smoky Lake cardigan

Finishing a sweater, with time to spare to wear it in the current winter season, is a pretty awesome thing, my pals. I cast off this guy a couple of days ago and after a wash and generous blocking/drying time (bulky wool does take its time to dry), it was ready for the final step […]

New pattern: Macoun

My current cardigan knitting is bopping along this week – it’s not as far along as I had hoped it would be at this point, but it’s getting there – but before I come back to that I have to show you a design of mine that is now out in the world today! This […]

Catching up, part 2

My knitting blog friends, I do owe you a bit of catch up. One of the first things I’d be remiss in mentioning is that a pattern I had the privilege of designing this past year is now out in the world – I’m pleased to show you Francoise, a vest pattern which is one […]

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 […]

New Pattern: Retreat cardigan

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

Royale revised

A little over two years ago I released Royale. It was one of my early sweater patterns, and one which still represents my great affection for twisted stitches and travelling cables. I designed the original sweater for a deep scoop neck and 3/4 sleeves as modern details at the time. After a time I realized […]

Urban Collection: Water Street Cardigan

Since mid-March is upon us, it’s time for the March releases in the Urban Collection to begin, and the first of these is now available! The Water St. Cardigan can be found here on Ravelry, (once the collection is complete, all patterns will also be available individually or as a set on Patternfish.) and well […]

The finish line is worth it

It’s done! Gwendolyn is done! Guys, I can’t remember the last time I took seven months to finish knitting something. I mean, I did knit other things in that same seven months, so I can cut myself some slack there, but still. That much time between start and finish can mess with your head a […]
