Month: November 2014
Remember these thrummed mittens I made two years ago for Valentines Day? I’m thinking of making another pair–this time with perhaps navy blue thrums and a gray main color. What do you think? Have you ever made thrummed mittens before? If you are going through these 25 degree November days like we are here in…
Two ferociously cold nights here in Boston meant early to bed with blankets and books and knitting projects, of course. After those two nights, I have a fair isle yoke, already divided for the sleeves and body, completed. And I’m loving it. I’ve knitted the Chevrons sweater before for my mum as a Christmas gift…
This hat was really quick to knit, and already, tons of friends are coveting one of their own. I made some modifications to Brook Taylor’s Winter Blues hat, namely a 2×2 rib at the bottom, no changes in color over the colorwork chart, and no hearts, just snowflakes. I also went down two needle sizes…
Some rainy, cold November nights, you just have to whip up a batch of brownies.
My mum is an amazing person. She recently took me on a trip to Portland to visit Knit Wit, a yarn shop I’ve been dying to patron. And on top of that, she bought me 10 skeins of delicious Owl yarn by Quince and Co (a Maine-based yarn company whose flagship in shop sales location…
From my sketchbook this week. An assortment of cacti and succulents.
I’m nearing the finish line on my Laight Street Wrap, which has taken kind of a back burner to some more pressing projects–including Christmas gifts and new baby gifts. I think this is going to be one of the coziest knits I’ve made for myself. And today, was our first snow. It seems like perfect…
roasted beet / chevre / walnut.
Sometimes, I opt for really simple, no cook dinners. Roast your beets ahead of time, and you’re ready to go. I made a blush wine vinaigrette to go on top of the spring greens.
This is a dream pile of Brooklyn Tweed Shelter in cast iron colorway for the main color and some fossil for the colorwork on the yoke of a sweater I’m soon to cast on for myself. I’ve made Chevrons before for my mum. And now it’s time to make this amazing sweater for myself. There’s…
Taking scissors to the blood, sweat, and tears of a finished knitted garment may be the scariest thing I’ve ever done. But, it had to be attempted on my Stasis Pullover, which when all was said and done, came out beautifully, but had the longest sleeves known to man. I couldn’t wear it and fake…
I love to go to bed early; its my jam. At night, with little distraction, and plenty of quiet, I can read, knit, or in this case, stitch. Lately, my goal is to get back to long neglected projects and get them finished. This includes reknitting the length of some sleeves on my Stasis Pullover…
frosted alpine x 3.
This is the third Frosted Alpine hat by Tanis Lavallee that I have completed. I love this hat more than any other baby hat I’ve made because it is perfect for a newborn, a toddler, and quite frankly, I’m thinking about making the adult version for my guy. It’s so versatile and quick. I can…
