f.o.: bouquet sweater.

This sweater took me six months to finish. While I put it down for quite awhile, it still was so slow going with the color work, especially because its designed with the floats on the outside so getting your tension right is key. I’m really pleased with the final result. I had a happy accident,Continue reading “f.o.: bouquet sweater.”

f.o.: the doc’s flax sweater.

I’ve knit quite a few Flax Sweaters by Tin Can Knits through the years–most notably the scrappy ones I made for my nephews to use up bits of my stash last winter. I love the fit, the ease of the design, and the ability to knit mindlessly in public, whilst watching t.v., and on. AndContinue reading “f.o.: the doc’s flax sweater.”

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.”

yarn: harrisville nightshades.

Calling the hive mind! Tons of folks are obsessing over Harrisville Designs new line, Night Shades, and I am indeed one of them. I recently scored 5 skeins (a sweaters quantity, approximately) in the static color way, which has little flecks of white in the dark tones. I’m in love. But now, what to makeContinue reading “yarn: harrisville nightshades.”

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.”

swatch: snoqualmie cardigan.

I finally did it. In 2019, I swatched. I swatched this gorgeous baby for my Snoqualmie Cardigan by Michelle Wang (who is a genius, imho), which has been on my list to knit forever. And in 2019, one of my knitting goals was to swatch. And to swatch regularly for sweaters. I’m so bad aboutContinue reading “swatch: snoqualmie cardigan.”

f.o. | turtle dove sweater.

I finally took some snaps of myself wearing my Turtle Dove Sweater by Espace Tricot and for once, I think I’m in love and might wear this one regularly. It fits like a dream. This is knit up using Woolfolk Luft yarn in the 6L (blacks) colorway; this is my first time using this yarn,Continue reading “f.o. | turtle dove sweater.”

wip | turtle dove sweater.

This is my first time using a Woolfolk yarn, even though my sweater club has been sitting in a box waiting for me about half a year now (and it’s filled with Woolfolk yarn). I’m currently rounding the finish line on the Turtle Dove sweater by Espace Tricot using Woolfolk Luft bulky yarn, in theContinue reading “wip | turtle dove sweater.”

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.”
