Happy Birthday!

I don’t usually make a big deal about birthdays (especially mine) but I thought it might be a fun change of pace!  I hope you won’t think me too conceited 😉 Grateful I have so much to be thankful for this year, and such wonderful things to look forward to in the coming year.  As […]

Beautiful Things

Beautiful Things

I mentioned in last week’s post that things had been a little crazy around here!  (Go check it out if you’re interested–it’s an entertaining read!) Yarn Along I’ve been taking a bit of a designing break, but that doesn’t mean I’ve taken a knitting break!  It’s so refreshing to work from other designers’ patterns!  Since […]

Can I Knit All The Things?

Can I Knit All The Things?

We had our first cool, fall-like weather last week.  It’s gone now, but my goodness, was it refreshing!  It’s mid-80s for the foreseeable future, but I’m going to cling to last week’s crisp feeling for dear life until the weather starts behaving again! It has certainly motivated me to knit. all. the. things.  I have […]

The Yarn Haul + A Knit Along!

The Yarn Haul + A Knit Along!

Hello Friend!  Is it cooling down in your part of the world?  We’ve finally had our first cool, crisp, rainy day here in Texas–it’s about time!  I’m ready to knit ALL. THE. SWEATERS, but that’s so hard when it’s still nearly 100 degrees! I had such a great time at STITCHES Texas this past weekend, […]

New Release: Old Magic

New Release: Old Magic

Magic The final installment of the Looking Back series is releasing today!  Old Magic, the third and final shawl, is definitely a show stopper! It has a very generous size and is designed specifically to wrap securely around the shoulders and stay in place.  The allover Sparkle lace motifs create lots of visual interest, but […]

Coming Together

Coming Together

After taking a few days off over the past few weeks to just “be”, I’m back at work preparing for Old Magic’s launch on Ravelry this Thursday!  It’s my 20th design and I’m so excited to share it with all of you!  It will also be available through Knit Picks, as will Charlatan and Mother […]

Sleeve Conqueror

Sleeve Conqueror

I’ve done it!  I’ve finished the second sleeve, sewn them both in, knitted the band and finished blocking my new sweater!  It’s still a little steamy here in TX to wear a wool sweater (even a sport weight one) but I promise I’ll have modeled pics in a future post 😀 The DFW Yarn Crawl […]

Second Sleeve Syndrome

Second Sleeve Syndrome

You guys!  I have second sleeve syndrome so bad right now!  I couldn’t even muster up the courage to post a Yarn Along last week…ugh.  I really want this sweater to be done, so I can wear it all over the place…it’s just that darned sleeve! I had such an aversion to knitting it that […]

Just the Sleeves

Just the Sleeves

How is your knitting going this week?  As predicted, once I divided for the armholes on my Pomme de Pin Cardigan things have moved along rather quickly.  I’ve finished the body and seamed the shoulders and neck, so now it’s on to the sleeves… yay, sleeves.  Is my enthusiasm showing?  I would almost prefer them […]
