process |shop.

I had an etsy shop years back–almost ten years back! I wasn’t at a time or space to really grow that shop or make it work. So, it closed. Lately, I’ve been thinking about certain aspects of my making–some of which I’d like to share with the world.  I’ve also got nearly a month andContinue reading “process |shop.”

f.o. | purl soho baby sweater.

For a colleague’s impending girl. I loved knitting this one. The details were so interesting and the construction was impeccable. The Little Baby Sweater by Purl Soho is knit from the bottom up, you create a squared set it sleeve later using pick ups and cable cast ons–so fun! I’ve never knit a sweater thisContinue reading “f.o. | purl soho baby sweater.”

baby knits | purl soho essentials.

I adore Purl Soho patterns–particularly their baby knits, which I’ve made a million times over for the impending bundles in my life. I can’t tell you how many pairs of baby mocs I’ve made–and I always gift them with the garter ear flap hat because I think they go nicely together and can be knit up inContinue reading “baby knits | purl soho essentials.”

wip | merrifield.

I love Pam Allen’s patterns for Quince and Co. They are always beautiful and have small details–like Merrifield, which features a square neckline and the use of slipped stitches to create cool cables. This was such a fast knit. I don’t know why it was finished in just a handful of days and not anyContinue reading “wip | merrifield.”

cook | beef ramen.

This entire spring has been relatively cold and rainy. Day in, day out. We need the rain, but it leaves me is quite a funk. Some of the only creative outlets I’ve had in this weather are in the kitchen. And so, when it poured and poured last week, and the idea of walking andContinue reading “cook | beef ramen.”

sew | summer shirts.

I desperately want to get better at sewing. It never happens, mostly because I don’t have a sewing machine. And so, my mum takes me down to her studio every once in awhile to give me a lesson. But, I get lazy sometimes, and don’t want to work on my projects. I’d rather just hangContinue reading “sew | summer shirts.”

cook | cod + lemony spinach.

This is a really simple, healthy weeknight meal. The baked cod, wrapped in prosciutto for a little bit of necessary fat, is smothered in salt, pepper, olive oil and baked until white and flaky, about 10-12 minutes in a 350 degree oven. I sauteed some onion, garlic, and spinach in a pan, and squeezed freshContinue reading “cook | cod + lemony spinach.”

make | hand painted necklaces.

I love trying new things. As part of my recent and burgeoning studio practice, I started painting a whole host of beads without any idea where it was going. And then, I hit the spray studio. And then, I remembered I had antiqued leather and linen yarn in my stash. Eventually, these necklaces were born.Continue reading “make | hand painted necklaces.”
