Pillow Pattern!

A few months ago Becca from the Bagsmith told me about her new product, the Apple Creek Felt Pelt. She described it to me as a sheet of pre-felt. I didn’t tell her this, but I didn’t really know what she was talking about! Then I got some in the mail, and I was still a little lost. It was beautiful with all it’s color variation, but what the heck was I supposed to do with it? I played with … Read More

Helium Sweater

I’ve been a pretty terrible blogger lately, but I’m finally sharing photos of my Helium Sweater from Knitscene Summer 2014. Well last summer, when I finished knitting this sweater, I took a few photos of it. Because for the first time, I actually knit a sample sweater in MY size! This is quite amazing, since most samples are to fit a 33 or 34″ bust, but this sample is the 36 3/4″, which is also my exact bust measurement. I … Read More

Chunky Cabled Hat & Scarf

Last week the new Bulky Collection 2013 from Knit Picks was published! You can see my pattern, the Chunky Cabled Hat & Scarf, here. Personally I’m not a huge fan of scarves that aren’t reversible. I’m not one of those people who can always look ‘just so’ and thus I need accessories that are flexible. Shawls don’t have to abide by this rule because usually I wear them like kerchiefs, and those tend to stay put a little better. So … Read More

FO Friday: Ginny’s Cardigan

I finished my Ginny’s Cardigan about a month ago, and I finally took pictures of it last weekend. I’m really happy with how mine came out, it has 0 ease and fits me perfectly! Here are a few photos. I made mine in Classic Elite Woodland in Silver. Also mine was the second size, I have a 36 3/4″ bust, and I did the short rows for a C cup. I also have a few thoughts on finishing of this … Read More

FO Friday & a new pattern!

Disclaimer: I’m cheating on FO Friday. I didn’t actually knit this cowl, a friend of mine, who is also an awesome sample knitter, knit this for me. But it is finished, and it is Friday. It might have been finished on a Friday, but if it was it wasn’t this one. Ok, now that I’ve cleared my conscience I can continue with the blog post! I published a new pattern yesterday, the Creedmoor Cowl. This cowl is perfect for using … Read More

New Pattern! Harrington Shawlette

Some patterns just seem to take FOREVER. This is one of those. I don’t really know all the reasons why this has taken so long. I know a few, but we won’t go into all of those… I originally knit this in January 2012. There were some issues with the chart, and there were no written directions, so I re-wrote the entire thing once. I also submitted this pattern to a couple publications and it was rejected, which causer further … Read More

Shoot It!

There has been a lot of evidence of my terrible photography on this blog. I usually try to save your eyes from my lack of talent, and prefer to show Katy Doyle’s lovely photos of my knit items. However, Katy lives in Boston, and has a very busy life of her own, so I thought maybe I should learn a few things about photography. I do not have a fancy camera. I have a Cannon Powershot, which is a point … Read More
