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.”

wear | merrifield sweater.

I finished my Merrifield Sweater by Pam Allen back in May, and today is the first time I’m actually wearing it out in the world (to my job). I’m loving the fit, which is unusual for me–usually, I never wear my hand knit sweaters because the sleeves are too long, or too short, or theContinue reading “wear | merrifield sweater.”

wip | merrifield.

I love Pam Allen’s patterns for Quince and Co. They are always beautiful and have small details–like Merrifield, which features a square neckline and the use of slipped stitches to create cool cables. This was such a fast knit. I don’t know why it was finished in just a handful of days and not anyContinue reading “wip | merrifield.”

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.”
