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 […]

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.  […]
