When you live in New England, you can never own too many hats, right? This is my mantra every fall, as the cooler climes start to head in and I begin to think about updating my knits. Of course, I always make my own hats and scarves. My needles have been no stranger to theContinue reading “f.o. : newspaper print roku hat.”
I finally cast on (and finished!) the Skiff Hat. I used Brooklyn Tweed Shelter, as the pattern calls for, in the artifact color way. It’s a deep forest green and I love it. Since finishing, I haven’t yet snapped it or worn it because I wonder if it’s too large for my head. Does itContinue reading “wip: skiff hat.”
The Striped Hats pattern by Quince and Co. is for sure my favorite pattern this winter. It’s simple, easy to memorize so the project is good for travel or knitting in public, and they knit up in a day or two. Plus, the color combinations are endless and you don’t need large amounts of woolContinue reading “f.o. | striped hats.”
This sweater was such a fast knit. A modified Tea with Jam and Bread in Brooklyn Tweed Shelter cast iron and fossil. I did a split hem at the bottom and I finished the sleeves last night, so all it needs is a good blocking. Finished snaps soon. What are you making this fall forContinue reading “finish line | striped tweed.”

The thing I love about this sweater is it canContinue reading “wip | striped.”
Here’s another shot of me wearing my super high Varia hat, which I knit in various tones of Brooklyn Tweed Shelter. I’m such a Brooklyn Tweed devotee. It’s a problem.
This is the first wool purchase I have made in a year. The reason I decided to stop buying yarn was because my stash was really large and I had this really lofty goal of saving money and purchasing a home in 2015. And guess what? I didn’t purchase yarn, and I bought my firstContinue reading “tweed horses.”
Here is the finished body of my Chevrons sweater. It only took a few days to complete the entire thing–sleeves and all. I will take proper snaps of it this week hopefully, so you can see the finished results. Fit is perfect for me; not tight or fitted, just a perfect every day super coldContinue reading “chevrons body.”
Some Brooklyn Tweed Shelter in the “Woodsmoke” and “Fossil” colorways for the Shipyard Mittens. The pattern is in the first volume of the Wool People installments by Brooklyn Tweed. I will make these for myself once the last of my holiday knitting is complete. So close.
