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.”

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.

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.”

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.”

wip | coffee cross stitch.

I worked pretty feverishly on this cross stitch back in August. And for some reason, I lost steam. This little chart of different kinds of coffee drinks and the components that make them will eventually be art for my kitchen. Or I’ll gift it off to a friend. Consider this a push to finish thisContinue reading “wip | coffee cross stitch.”

striped.

I decided I need a comfy orange and greenish striped sweater as temperatures in Boston chill. I’m using Tea with Jam and Bread as my base because I’ve made it before and I loved the way it fit. This time around, though, I’m doing 2 inches of striping in contrasting colors throughout the whole ofContinue reading “striped.”

finish line.

Last sleeve of my Willard Pullover by Hannah Fettig. I’m so close I can taste it. One more day, and I can check this one off the list. I’d like to finish this sweater called Scatter next (which I started in early November but abandoned because I forgot the needles I needed one weekend soContinue reading “finish line.”

willard.

Here’s the progress I’ve made in the last week on my Willard Fair Isle Pullover by Hannah Fettig. I love the results so far. It’s a really quick knit. The only finnicky part so far was the tubular cast on. I don’t know why mine was coming out so loose, so I definitely took itContinue reading “willard.”

wip, umbrellas.

My Umbrellas cardigan is blocking out once before I finally add some sleeves. The pattern calls for a nice short, capped style, but it’s not really practical in Boston, given our weather most of the year, so I’m modifying it to include a full sleeve. Umbrellas is knit using Malabrigo Yarn Sock in cote d’azure for the mainContinue reading “wip, umbrellas.”
