Friday Finds

One of these days this intro will simply say “Pattteerrrrnnnssss” and you will know that I’ve completed my transformation into a zombie, but today is apparently not that day. Good for us all, I suppose. Julia Bereciartu, Love Triangle Love Triangle (€3.50) Karen Juliano, Now With Thicker Frosting ($8) Hilary […]

Friday Finds

Happy Friday! We’re staring down a cold and snowy weekend in Colorado, so basically, my plan is to stay inside as much as possible and knit away! Probably on the couch with a movie queue piled next to the blu-ray player. What are your favorite “homebody weekend” movies? Slipping Ridge […]

Two incredibly disparate ideas

I believe I forgot to mention that I recently had the pleasure of meeting Ann Budd. Yes, The Ann Budd, prolific knitwear author and editor at Interweave Press. We didn’t have a chance to speak much, but I feel this is incredibly noteworthy for two reasons: One, it’s Ann Budd; […]

A debut.

You all know that I knit socks, right? Like, a lot of socks. More socks than anyone living in Florida ever needed to knit. Yeah, that was me. Well all that crazy sock knitting has paid off in the form of my first published-in-print design: the Wasabi Peas Socks published […]

Parallel Lines and a Contest

My first “real” design (“real” meaning “translated from my brain to the page”) saw it’s debut on Ravelry earlier this week. My Parallel Lines (PDF download; Rav link) scarf has been well-received (at least to my perception, being a first-time, no-name designer). I’m so happy that so many people are […]

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 […]

Come on Fall!

I’m from Florida. Our “Fall” is mostly just rain, rain, rain, with the possibility of lots of rain and really strong winds. None of the iconic images that come to mind when one thinks of Fall. Yeah, that doesn’t happen in Florida. But now that I live in Colorado, I […]

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 […]

Pattern Overload

You know that phrase, “my eyes were bigger than my stomach?” I’m pretty sure my eyes are bigger than my hands, so to speak. Maybe I should say “my knitting needles.” I feel like I have a million projects to do, and I’m looking forward so very, very much to […]
