wips: little stripes for little bodies.

Right after Jackie died last winter, I knit a lot of stripes. They were all for little bodies. It was so meditative and allowed me to find color in darkness. And use up bits and bobs from my stash. When you’ve been knitting a long time, you realize how much little tiny bits of leftoverContinue reading “wips: little stripes for little bodies.”

f.o. : ripple crop top.

For some reason, this Ripple Crop Top by Jessie Mae Martinson took me forever to complete.

Both, I am proud to say, are stash busting projects. And both, are now nearly done. I don’t usually have two sweater projects going at once. But onceContinue reading “transmute beginnings.”
