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.”

baby knits | purl soho essentials.

I adore Purl Soho patterns–particularly their baby knits, which I’ve made a million times over for the impending bundles in my life. I can’t tell you how many pairs of baby mocs I’ve made–and I always gift them with the garter ear flap hat because I think they go nicely together and can be knit up inContinue reading “baby knits | purl soho essentials.”

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.”

f.o. | baby mocs.

I made these Purl Bee teeny, tiny little baby mocs for Sean’s newest niece, Sadie. I’ve made a whole bunch of pairs of these in the past (and here), which are more like baby socks than structured booties, which is why I like them so much. Quite frankly, I haven’t met a Purl Bee pattern yetContinue reading “f.o. | baby mocs.”

purl soho | linen quill

I’m nearing the finish line on my beach tank (it’s summer, after all!) and these Purl Soho Linen Quill babies are waiting in the wings for the next project. I have yet to knit with any of Purl Soho yarns, so the verdict is out on whether it knits up as beautifully as it looksContinue reading “purl soho | linen quill”

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.”

garter stripes.

My new obsession: this baby hat by Purl Bee.  I did a few slight modifications for this hat, which will be gifted to a friend and future child. I’m in love with how fun these can get. This was knit up using Madelinetosh Tosh Merino in the thyme colorway for the contrasting stripe and MalabrigoContinue reading “garter stripes.”
