Zooey’s mini Still Light Tunic is finished! She’s in love with it and that makes me so happy. I’ve made myself Still Light Tunics on two occasions and I love the pattern. It’s a pretty simple top-down raglan style, so I modified it to...
Awkward poses

Awkward poses

Flaum is getting continued attention and the magic of the collar/body connection fully makes sense in my brain now. Once my brain understood the construction I thought it was brilliant. Sometimes I’m a little spatially challenged. I’m knitting this in...

The body of Zooey’s mini Still Light Tunic is finished! She had a few complaints about the “skirt” as I was knitting it, mostly because it doesn’t contain ruffles. I think she will change her mind when she puts it on, and I’ve let her...
Trust the pattern

Trust the pattern

Sometimes I’m working on a pattern and just can see all of the ways the pieces will form and fit together. It is this way with Flaum. I don’t want to give away any of the secrets of the pattern, but it starts with the collar and that will be worked with...
What else can I say about socks?

What else can I say about socks?

I’ve finished another pair of socks. Gasp! Surely not me! I never knit socks! (Insert plenty of sarcasm here). Put “sock” in the search bar on the side and you’ll see what I mean…The pattern is called Staccato Socks and the yarn is...

If you give a girl a dress…

…she’s going to ask for another one. And then she’s going to want a hat to go with it. And so on. We’ve come full spectrum from Zooey rejecting things I’ve knitted for her to having a running list of things I should knit for her next....
Fast, fast socks

Fast, fast socks

I got the opportunity to try another Knitcrate sock subscription box and this time I received some Buffalo Wool Co. Tracks Sport. The color is Amethyst. This isn’t a yarn I would have sought out for myself. I’ve never knitted socks in a heavier weight than...

I’m over the moon for this sweater. It was killing me not to wear it sooner because I love it so much, but I am strict about getting photos before creations leave the house. It makes me so happy to start the week in this sweater, Element by Kirsten Johnstone....
Invisible socks

Invisible socks

These simple, unobtrusive socks were the aforementioned project that I worked on for several weeks in Matt’s presence without him noticing them. I had teased him a little bit when I asked him if he knew what he was getting for Christmas. He assumed he would get...

Grinchy

I’m not a big fan of Christmas knitting. I like to knit for birthdays or hand off knitted items throughout the year just for fun. Mostly, I don’t like the pressure to finish things by a certain deadline because knitting is my coping skill and I like to use...
