f.o. : newspaper print roku hat.

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.”

wip: snoqualmie cardigan.

This sweater is quite the labor of love. I keep picking it up and putting it down, which is why it’s taking me so long (more than 6 months! but I’ve made a bunch of stuff in between). The Snoqualmie has been on my list for quite some time. I know I will cherish thisContinue reading “wip: snoqualmie cardigan.”

wip: skiff 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.”

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. | striped hats.

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.”

f.o. | stripes.

My modified Tea with Jam and Bread by Heidi Kirrmaier is finished and it fits like a dream. I’m really pleased with the finished product and feel like this will be one of the well worn additions to my wardrobe. Here’s how I did it: I love the neckline of this pattern, so I usedContinue reading “f.o. | stripes.”

finish line | striped tweed.

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.”

wip | striped.

I decided I wanted to make myself a basic charcoal and white striped sweater. I’ve made a version of the Tea and Jam and Bread sweater before, loved the fit but ultimately gifted it to my mum, and decided I wanted a version for myself. The thing I love about this sweater is it canContinue reading “wip | striped.”

woolens | seeds hat.

This is my finished Seeds Hat from Jared Flood’s (of the always brilliant Brooklyn Tweed) book Woolens, which came out last fall. Despite scooping up the book as soon as it was released, it wasn’t until last week that I finally picked my first project. Seeds hat, it is. There are a number of otherContinue reading “woolens | seeds hat.”

blocked | forester.

This is my second Forester by Michele Wang. I just adore this pattern. The construction is interesting and unlike any sweater I’ve knit before–you start at the neck, increase for the sleeves, then knit one sleeve completely, work to the next sleeve, knit that one completely, and then go back to the body. Genius! NoContinue reading “blocked | forester.”

wip | riva hat.

The Riva Hat, as part of Quince and Co.’s Sea Smoke collection (which also features a sweater I definitely want to knit), is a must knit. I decided to use Brooklyn Tweed Shelter instead of the called for Quince and Co. Lark because I had a bunch of it in my stash, and because I’veContinue reading “wip | riva hat.”

fair isle, in progress.

Here’s progress on my First Fair Isle Sweater by yu co, featured in Amirisu magazine. I actually had to rip a few rows back because I forgot to change my background color to the cast iron, and I want to follow the fair isle pattern as written. This is the project I’m working on forContinue reading “fair isle, in progress.”
