f.o. | scrappy boot socks.

It’s about that season–heavier boot socks. And so, I made another version of my favorite Purl Soho Boot Socks using a whole bunch of bits and ends from other projects. The palette isn’t the most pleasing but they’ll be hiding in boots and who doesn’t want to wear super wash merino wool on their feet?Continue reading “f.o. | scrappy boot socks.”

make | loom beading.

I received this amazing beaded loom kit from Purl Soho last week and decided to teach myself a new craft. I’ve done a ton of peyote style beading but never tried weaving beads on a loom. I’m really pleased with this pattern; once the loom was set up (abysmal process), the beading work is doneContinue reading “make | loom beading.”

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.”

f.o. | purl soho baby sweater.

For a colleague’s impending girl. I loved knitting this one. The details were so interesting and the construction was impeccable. The Little Baby Sweater by Purl Soho is knit from the bottom up, you create a squared set it sleeve later using pick ups and cable cast ons–so fun! I’ve never knit a sweater thisContinue reading “f.o. | purl soho baby sweater.”

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.”

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”

yarn lust, 6.2

This is 8 gorgeous skeins of Alchemy fingerweight in Antique Jade. It’s going to be for Leah’s Lovely Cardigan, which is a complete copy cat of my friend r.r.’s lovely version, which is just stunning. She wore it into work the other week, and I felt weak about the knee immediately upon seeing it andContinue reading “yarn lust, 6.2”

purl soho notions, 5.14

Purchased this gorgeous hardwood needle hole, as I like to call it, at Purl Soho last weekend in NYC. It’s basically a little wooden holder for all my knitting darning needles. Gorgeous, no? Also snatched? Some beautiful cross stitch swatches a bit stiffer than the normal Aida and in gorgeous colorways like mustard and springContinue reading “purl soho notions, 5.14”

So, ho, in love with Purl…

Purl Soho is amazing! Able to visit for the first time this past weekend–and during their grand opening at the new location no less–I scooped up some delicious skeins of Lorna and some lace weight which I can’t wait to use to create a new wave patterned shawl; I can see it in my headContinue reading “So, ho, in love with Purl…”

In New York…Day Dos.

The greatest Salt bagel, ever. With uber-delicious tofu cream cheese. Who knew there were so many smears? Jessica devouring her tofu smeared bagel and a giant Iced Coffee; the perfect start to a monumental day trek through the city that started in Gramercy, went on to Chelsea, moved into Soho, and ended with an epicContinue reading “In New York…Day Dos.”
