tosh | boot socks.

It’s getting luxurious around here. I decided to knit Sean these Purl Bee boot socks for Valentine’s Day this year, mostly because they knit up so quickly in worsted weight yarn. I actually didn’t think they’d feel as light and airy as the finished project does–and they are, dare I say it, a foot’s dream,Continue reading “tosh | boot socks.”

roku x 3.

I am obsessed with knitting the Roku Hat, which is a basic 1×1 ribbed hat that fits adorably and takes one evening to knit up. I have knit 3 Roku hats in as many days–and will feature them in this space once they are finished blocking out. Here is a Roku in progress using theContinue reading “roku x 3.”

end of may.

I finished my heavily modified End of May mittens and gifted them to my sister in law for Christmas this year. I am so excited about the fit and look of these that I have to make myself a pair in different colors.

The espadrilles shocking pink is really perfect for spring and summer and is making me want toContinue reading “striped tosh.”

stash & plotting.

There’s nothing better than a yarn delivery. Last week, I received three amazing skeins of Tanis Fiber Arts Green Label Aran in the chris gray, lucky penny, and shadow colorways for some baby gifts. This yarn is so gorgeous it might be my new favorite, even though I used it to knit my French BraidContinue reading “stash & plotting.”

sneak peak, drips.

I’ve pretty much done what I’ve been saying I would do for years: get all my Christmas knitting done way ahead of time. For the first time, ever, I am doing and have done just that. It’s remarkable, really, since it’s impossible for me to set rules for myself and abide by them. But hereContinue reading “sneak peak, drips.”
