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.”

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.”

knit | scrappy sweaters.

I always have a ton of odds and ends from various projects–little bits of really nice yarns that I can’t bear to throw out and don’t know what to do with because the leftovers aren’t quite enough for a hat or other small accessory. I decided to use all my fancy bits of Madelinetosh ToshContinue reading “knit | scrappy sweaters.”

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.”

f.o. | lime socks.

The first of these socks lingered on the needles for nearly a month. When I finally finished the first, the second came swiftly and had me thinking: I really should learn to knit two at a time using magic loop. These were knit up using less than one skein of Three Irish Girls sock inContinue reading “f.o. | lime socks.”

stash | quaere fibre.

Grabbed this beauty from Quaere Fibre out of my stash to make some socks for the doc, who has a birthday coming up and much appreciates the hand knits. Quaere self-striping sock yarns are hand dyed just down the road from me in Rhode Island. This is the snips and snails colorway, which so far,Continue reading “stash | quaere fibre.”

f.o. | season pass.

This is the Plucky Knitter Season Pass hat I knit for my sister in law this past holiday. I really wanted to stick closely to one of the color stories presented in the original pattern because I thought the intended wearer would appreciate it based on her style and dress. This was yet another entirelyContinue reading “f.o. | season pass.”

hunting | orange.

I knit my brother a Roku Hat in this shocking neon orange for Christmas. He’s into skeet shooting these days and an avid outdoors man. He needed an approrpiately knit hat. And while I finished it so closely to when I gifted it, I failed to grab a snap of it. However, here’s to hopingContinue reading “hunting | orange.”

wip | riva hat.

The Riva Hat, as part of Quince and Co.’s Sea Smoke collection (which also features a sweater I definitely want to knit), is a must knit. I decided to use Brooklyn Tweed Shelter instead of the called for Quince and Co. Lark because I had a bunch of it in my stash, and because I’veContinue reading “wip | riva hat.”
