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 […]

Fabled Forest: Available Today!

Fabled Forest: Available Today!

I’m so excited to be releasing Fabled Forest today!  It’s a super quick to knit hat worked in heavy worsted/aran weight yarn.  It features a simple lace motif that creates the “tree” shapes, topped with a textured seed stitch crown and optional pompoms to finish the look. I know it’s probably super hot where you […]

Yarn Crawl Prep

Yarn Crawl Prep

Hi all!  I hope you’ve had a productive week!  I’ve been working for the last 6 weeks or so to get ready for the DFW Yarn Crawl event, and I’m finally starting to feel like I might be ready in time! My dining room is slowly being taken over by samples, supplies, displays and products. […]

You’re Invited to a Knit Along!

You’re Invited to a Knit Along!

This week, I’ve been working on tidying up and improving one of my all time favorite patterns Perdrix. (Exciting news–it now includes Newborn size!) (But before we go any further, I have a confession to make.  I look weird in hats.  Can you believe it!  I have never felt comfortable rocking any sort of hat.  […]

“A charlatan is a person practicing quackery or some similar confidence trick in order to obtain money, fame or other advantages via some form of pretense or deception.” (Wikipedia) Charlatan is a triangular shaped shawl with an unconventional construction.  It is the second shawl in the Looking Back Series-named for those snake oil salesmen of […]

Bake Your Own Minecraft Cake

Bake Your Own Minecraft Cake

When I was putting ideas together for Luca’s Minecraft birthday party, I showed him my Pinterest board to ask what his opinion on an appropriate cake would be.  There were sheet cakes decorated to look like a Creeper face.  There were massive cake cubes tiled with various pixels of brown and green to look like […]

Winners Announced and Charlatan is Almost Here!

Winners Announced and Charlatan is Almost Here!

I can’t tell you how excited I am about today’s post!  I’ve been waiting to share pics of Charlatan with you until it was closer to launch day, and it finally is!  This design is so much fun to knit, and has a really interesting construction that is simple and relaxing to work on.  It’s […]

Luca’s Quilt

Luca’s Quilt

I may have mentioned…I don’t know…last year maybe? that I was making each of my kiddos a special quilt, as part of their Bedroom Makeovers.  Isla’s was completed fairly quickly–you can read the reveal post here.  The quilt top for Luca’s went together in about a week (such a promising start!) but the project languished […]
