f.o.: galloway hat.

This hat! What a dream to knit. I bought a kit to make it from Brooklyn Tweed because I liked the idea of having just the right amount of yarn for the pattern, but I ended up having some extra of the main color way because I didn’t add a pom pom. This is aContinue reading “f.o.: galloway hat.”

f.o.: resist hat #4.

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 keepingContinue reading “f.o.: resist hat #4.”

f.o.: the doc’s new striped socks.

These were socks I knot for the doc for his Christmas gift. Readers of the blog know how much he loves hand knit socks and I have to churn out a few pairs a year to add to his collection. These are a simple after-thought heel sock knit using Nomadic Yarns self-striping sock yarn inContinue reading “f.o.: the doc’s new striped socks.”

wip | (yet another) resist hat.

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, thisContinue reading “wip | (yet another) resist hat.”

yarn | o-wool.

I’m really excited about this bundle of O-Wool O-wash organic merino wool in the brown bear color way, which looks slightly black and slightly brown and slightly forest green. It’s downright gorgeous. This will be my first time knitting with O-Wool; it will likely become a Flax sweater for my partner, Sean. Stay tuned.

f.o. | turtle dove sweater.

I finally took some snaps of myself wearing my Turtle Dove Sweater by Espace Tricot and for once, I think I’m in love and might wear this one regularly. It fits like a dream. This is knit up using Woolfolk Luft yarn in the 6L (blacks) colorway; this is my first time using this yarn,Continue reading “f.o. | turtle dove sweater.”

wip | turtle dove sweater.

This is my first time using a Woolfolk yarn, even though my sweater club has been sitting in a box waiting for me about half a year now (and it’s filled with Woolfolk yarn). I’m currently rounding the finish line on the Turtle Dove sweater by Espace Tricot using Woolfolk Luft bulky yarn, in theContinue reading “wip | turtle dove sweater.”

f.o. | scrappy boot socks.

It’s about that season–heavier boot socks. And so, I made another version of my favorite Purl Soho Boot Socks using a whole bunch of bits and ends from other projects. The palette isn’t the most pleasing but they’ll be hiding in boots and who doesn’t want to wear super wash merino wool on their feet?Continue reading “f.o. | scrappy boot socks.”

knitting | scrappy flax sweaters.

My sister in law loves a matching outfit on her three boys. I usually knit them all the same pattern and add personal flair for each of them (my oldest nephew, Tyler, loves yellows and greens; my middle nephew, Ryan, likes pink and orange; and my youngest nephew, Grant, likes anything you put on himContinue reading “knitting | scrappy flax sweaters.”

knit | scrappy sweaters.

I always have a ton of odds and ends from various projects–little bits of really nice yarns that I can’t bear to throw out and don’t know what to do with because the leftovers aren’t quite enough for a hat or other small accessory. I decided to use all my fancy bits of Madelinetosh ToshContinue reading “knit | scrappy sweaters.”

knit | let’s dress crazy birthday socks.

I always knit some birthday socks for the doc because he loves them so much. These ones are my favorite, The After Thought Heel Socks, and they fit like a dream. Knit up with Quaere Fibre self-striping sock yarn in the Let’s Dress Crazy colorway. I love this small batch fiber–I’ve used more than oneContinue reading “knit | let’s dress crazy birthday socks.”
