Ice is cold and other revelations

Scraping ice off one’s windshield in the mornings before leaving for work is probably a pretty common winter occurrence in most parts of the world. I, however, like to bring my own spin to this chore by giggling my way through it, because it means that a) it’s cold and […]

Gold rush

I’ve mentioned before how excited I am for the arrival of my first “real” Fall. It’s really starting to hit up here. Any tree that isn’t an evergreen is turning some shade of yellow-green, gold, orange, or red. My parents were in town this past weekend for a visit, and […]

Stranded!

I have been completely obsessed with stranded colorwork lately. I can’t get it off of my mind. 1. 2. 3. I love unexpected color combinations, and updated takes on traditional stranded knitting, especially Fair Isle and Norwegian styles. 4. 5. 6. And I love how people use stranded colorwork to […]

I do know better, really

I know better than to think that I can go to a fiber event and not buy anything. I must have gone a bit batty when I thought that I could. Allow me to explain. Last week, I discovered via one of the LYS’s Twitters that the 4th Annual KnitWear […]

Come on Fall!

Comfort knitting

Since I’ve started knitting, the act of creating something out of a piece of string has been a great comfort to me. Whether I’m stressed out, somewhat sad, or even just having a single bad day, knitting brings me back to a mostly even keel. And boy, did I need […]

Secret knitting revealed!

Okay so it’s not really “secret” knitting. Remember the Hedera I knit a few months ago? I mentioned that I didn’t model them on my feet, as usual, because they were going to someone else. That someone else just happens to be the brilliant mastermind herself, Cookie A. as a […]

Inspiration.

As an optimistic designer-in-waiting, as I like to think of myself (so many ideas, so little time to make them actually happen), I love love love reading how other designers find inspiration to arrive at their designs. Cookie A talks a little bit about inspiration in Sock Innovation, and she […]

Potential.

I can’t really show you any of the knitting I’m working on at the moment. One is a gift, another is a test knit, and then there’s a couple of projects that I haven’t yet cast on for but can’t quite talk about yet, and that’s really all my brain […]
