This one is my best yet. I think my tension was really spot on and this hat shines if you actually knit it up using the suggested yarn–Quince and Co. Finch. This one used sabine as the main color and canvas as the contrasting. The dark and light really pop! so this one, I’m keeping … Continue reading f.o.: resist hat #4.
I love these Resist hats. I’ve knit four of them already–so why not a fifth? This one is knit using Quince and Co. Finch in sabine for the main color and canvas for the contrasting. This hat knits up really quick, so if you’re looking for some handmade holiday items as we wind down, this … Continue reading wip | (yet another) resist hat.
Yet another Resist Hat by Jess Schreibstein for Mild Woman. I love this one–knit up using two skeins of Knit Picks palette I had in my stash in the peony and oyster heather color ways. I could knit these in a million colors. See more of my resist hats here. Have you made one?
I have been eyeing this Resist Hat by Mild Woman for about a year–and the pattern was finally released last month. So of course, I dropped everything currently on the needles and knit this one up in a day. The main color is Brooklyn Tweed Loft in soot and the color work is done with … Continue reading f.o. | resist hat no. 1
As Herman Melville once so brilliantly noted, “Whenever I find myself growing grim about the mouth; whenever it is a damp, drizzly November in my soul; whenever I find myself involuntarily pausing before coffin warehouses, and bringing up the rear of every funeral I meet; and especially whenever my hypos get such an upper hand … Continue reading A woman of many hats?
I’ve been working on a First 100 Days sketchbook as a way to address my pent up anger and to try and put this time, and these feelings, into my artwork and express. I recently made a #nodapl block print–an issue extremely close to me as a Native American. It should be an issue important … Continue reading sketchbook | defend.
This is one of my latest block prints that’s got me thinking and wanting to print it everywhere. It just needs fabric. I tested it in my First 1oo Days sketchbook, which is a project I am working on to help me process and make art as part of my creative resistance. I call this … Continue reading print | sketchbook
I’m kind of the biggest book slut around. People know this to be true about me. As unfortunate as they may think it–I make bedfellow with many a book. I’m not just a reader and then a returner. I’m definitely a collector, housing multiple editions of the same book with different flap jackets. And then … Continue reading currently reading, 6.10
Another day, another book. Seriously; I have a problem. An obsession, of sorts. I recently scooped up this pile, which includes two Deluxe Anniversary Editions of books I already own (Nathaniel Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter and Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein) which can’t be resisted thanks to their kitschy cover art. What’s more, there’s Dian Fossey’s Gorillas … Continue reading Wasn’t talking ’bout me…
Another day, another obsession born. Enter A Verb for Keeping Warm, a yarn shop and blog that I recently discovered and now can’t stop reading and adoring. All of their beautiful yarn colorways are created with organic, sustainable, natural dyes, which makes them extra gush worthy. Plus, they have an extensive inventory of fibers. Yarns … Continue reading Inspiration is a verb…?
Photo Credit: Sandra Juto The ever-amazing Sandra Juto, whose blog I follow religiously, is producing these adorable little scarflets she’s calling Neck Worms. And they have inspired me to make my own scrap garter stitch scarf. I have loads of half skeins, etc., laying around, and it would be perfect for them–not that I really … Continue reading Inspiring Lil’ Worm…
I have a penchant for knitting up what friends like to dub “critters”. I gift a lot of them out, but then, I save a whole bunch too, never quite sure what to do with half of them. But Rill-Raccoon Rox is certainly one I’m keeping for sure. Created by the ever amazing Donna Wilson, … Continue reading Perfection as an odd-bod…
