f.o. : ripple crop top.

For some reason, this Ripple Crop Top by Jessie Mae Martinson took me forever to complete. I cast on during an epic August camping road trip through the Southwest the doc and I took, and didn’t manage to finish it until the start of October. I did keep putting it down, but it felt likeContinue reading “f.o. : ripple crop top.”

wip: snoqualmie cardigan.

This sweater is quite the labor of love. I keep picking it up and putting it down, which is why it’s taking me so long (more than 6 months! but I’ve made a bunch of stuff in between). The Snoqualmie has been on my list for quite some time. I know I will cherish thisContinue reading “wip: snoqualmie cardigan.”

wip: snoqualmie cardigan.

It’s been slow going, for some reason, on my Snoqualmie Cardigan by Michelle Wang. I’ve found even though the cables are easy to memorize and not technically difficult, if I can’t concentrate, I make silly errors, or my brain can’t memorize the sequence I’m on. Maybe it’s just where I’m at right now; so despiteContinue reading “wip: snoqualmie cardigan.”

f.o. | eugene pullover.

Despite my gauge being a little off on this one (and not discovering this until after I divided for the sleeves and didn’t want to rip the entire thing out), I’m really happy with the finished product and the fit of the sweater. Eugene is so comfortable; I might gift this one for the holidaysContinue reading “f.o. | eugene pullover.”

f.o. | eugene pullover.

I’ve been addicted to the Cascades collection by Whitney Hayward since it was released. I’ve even knit more than one Withrow hat from it. I’d love to have every one of these items in my wardrobe. I bought the yarn for the Eugene pullover about a year ago, but finally cast on for this sweaterContinue reading “f.o. | eugene pullover.”

f.o. | ramona light cardigan.

It’s been nearly two years, but I finally finished my Ramona Light cardigan. This one fits like a dream even if I used buttons that may be slightly on the too small size. The Ramona Light is knit up in Quince and Co. chickadee in the honey colorway; the fabric is light and dreamy. IContinue reading “f.o. | ramona light cardigan.”

wip | ramona light cardigan.

For some reason, this has been on the needles since 2017. I knit nearly 70 percent of it in a fury, in less than a week. And then, instead of immediately picking up the sleeve stitches and carrying on, I let it languish for more than a year. Until now. I finally finished this RamonaContinue reading “wip | ramona light cardigan.”

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. | withrow hat.

This is, by far, one of my favorite finish off’s so far this year. I know we are only a few weeks into 2018, but I can already tell this hat is going to remain a favorite as I add to the f.o. catalog. Withrow is a brilliant color work hat that’s featured in theContinue reading “f.o. | withrow hat.”

f.o. | striped hats.

The Striped Hats pattern by Quince and Co. is for sure my favorite pattern this winter. It’s simple, easy to memorize so the project is good for travel or knitting in public, and they knit up in a day or two. Plus, the color combinations are endless and you don’t need large amounts of woolContinue reading “f.o. | striped hats.”

f.o. | striped hat.

Back in 2013, I bought several skeins of Quince and Co. lark for their Striped Hat pattern. For some reason, they went in one of my stash bins to languish for four years. I have no idea why this project got away from me for so long. Usually, in these cases, I rediscover the yarnContinue reading “f.o. | striped hat.”
