f.o. | boot socks.

The doc loves these boot socks from Purl Bee (and so do I!). I’ve made a couple pairs for him–they are perfectly bulky for those freezing, winter days. And because they are knit in worsted weight yarn, you can make a pair in one sitting, pretty much. Sometimes they take two days, but in theContinue reading “f.o. | boot socks.”

f.o. | baby hats + socks.

Some little Purl Bee baby knits for an old friend that recently had her second child. This is the garter stitch baby hat and the baby socks from Last Minute Knitted Gifts. Purl Bee has the best patterns for babies. Simple, gender neutral, soft, adorable, tiny. They are my go to source and I tendContinue reading “f.o. | baby hats + socks.”

wip | neon socks.

This summer has been a kind of breather, for me. I had this moment in between employment, where I was looking to completely unplug and connect with relaxation, respite, passions. And for some reason, that meant leaving the sticks in the field bag. I did very little, if any knitting, during this time. I oftenContinue reading “wip | neon socks.”

f.o. | elwood baby.

Pattern Details: Elwood by Jenny Wiebe Yarn: Malabrigo Rios (main color: Azul Profundo ; contrasting color: Glazed Carrot. approx. 630 yards total) This is the second Elwood I have knit this spring. The first time around, it was for a colleague having her first kid. This time, it’s for my third nephew, who was born lastContinue reading “f.o. | elwood baby.”

f.o. | camilla babe.

I have been wanting to knit a Camilla Babe by Carrie Bostick Hoge for awhile now–but everyone I would knit for with child had boys or live in deserts, and while I’m very much anti gender specific colors or clothes, this feather and fan lace detail on the front, no matter in what yarn, felt too feminineContinue reading “f.o. | camilla babe.”

f.o. | birthday stripes.

The doc loves my hand knit socks. He wears them almost religiously, until its swamp summer climates. And every holiday, birthday, celebration, or just because, I make him a pair. He’s amassed quite the collection. A lot of them have been phased out of wear because I won’t darn holes in socks. That’s the wearContinue reading “f.o. | birthday stripes.”

gray street.

This is the Gray Street cowl I gifted my mum this Christmas. I used three skeins of Quince and Co. Puffin in sabine, kittywake, and iceland. I love how it came out and it’s a really quick knit on account of the bulky yarn and large needles. I can see endless color options, too. IContinue reading “gray street.”

speckled.

I splurged and got some of those incredible Madelinetosh speckled skeins, in the tosh vintage. This is from left to right “Filtered Light” and “Holi Festival”. I know the knitting community is abuzz about these colorways, but I have seen few finished products on ravelry in the vintage version–but definitely plenty in the tosh lite.Continue reading “speckled.”

pop.

To match that Purl Bee garter flap had I knit the other day. I decided to use my favorite baby sock pattern–Joelle Hoverson’s baby socks from More Last Minute Knitted Gifts. I’ve used it in the past to great results. This time around, I wanted the socks to not just match the hat, but IContinue reading “pop.”
