knit | notch hem tank.

Another tank top? In linen yarn? Why, yes! It’s summer, after all. This is Purl Soho’s Notched Hem Tank and I love it. I knit this using Quince and Co. sparrow in the new salt and pepper marle color way called rille. And it’s a dream. I love the details on the side of theContinue reading “knit | notch hem tank.”

knit | kai tank.

I’m on a linen yarn kick and I love making tank tops. This summer seemed to take forever to get here; and so while I begged for warmer skies this spring, I knit up a Kai Tank top using Quince and Co. kestrel linen yarn in the graphite color way. The only modifications I madeContinue reading “knit | kai tank.”

f.o. | hamlin peak.

I love Quince and Co. Kestrel linen yarn. I knit this flex tee in it last year, and to date, it is one of my favorite knits–for the interesting construction, the fit, and the compliments I have received when I wear it (“You made that?). Knitting is, by far, my longest, and most interesting loveContinue reading “f.o. | hamlin peak.”

flex tee | finished.

Flex by Heidi Kirrmaier is one of my favorite projects this year. It was quick, easy, and featured a really nice linen yarn that I’m now obsessed with: Quince and Co. kestrel. This is the pebble colorway and its a dream. I definitely could have knit this a size smaller but the drape is niceContinue reading “flex tee | finished.”

flex | finish line.

My Flex tshirt by Heidi Kirrmaier is nearly finished! All that’s left is a little side seaming and I can officially find out whether this is going to fit the way I want it to (fingers crossed for me, please). What a dream pattern. The construction was different and engaging and the Quince and Co.Continue reading “flex | finish line.”

flex | linen.

I decided I wanted to take another stab at a linen yarn project. A couple years back, I made the Saco Stripes tank top out of Quince and Co. Sparrow, and despite knitting the smallest size, it was way too big on me. So I gifted it off to my sister (with sadness–I really wantedContinue reading “flex | linen.”

saco.

The completed back of my saco stripes tank top. Knitted exactly to pattern in Quince and Co.’s sparrow linen yarn (colorways are sans for the main, and pigeons for the stripes). Already working on the front and hoping it fits like a dream. The linen yarn can be very splity when working, especially because I’m aContinue reading “saco.”

A lavender jacket turns linen…

Finally! I have cast on a delicious pattern from the loverly Pickles Blog, which I have gushed over before. I am absolutely head over heels for their Lavender Jacket; only mine won’t be lavender. Instead, I’ve chosen a light tea dyed sort of white-tan color, much like linen. And I adore it. The bulk andContinue reading “A lavender jacket turns linen…”
