I’m ready, Rhinebeck!

Scroll to the bottom of this page to view my video demonstrating how to knit cables without a cable needle. Having knit the Anniversaire cardi earlier this year, I am quite familiar with the cables of Veera Välimäki. Anniversaire features a variety of fun and interesting cables, but it was the rounded depressions of the…

My Autumn Threipmuir

For some reason I had previously knit only one Ysolda Teague pattern, which was a MKAL shawl a few years back. Yet, when I spied this Threipmuir (don’t ask me how to pronounce it) on Instagram I absolutely had to knit it. It had been a while since I had taken on a colorwork project,…

Almond Auger Tank

I started the Auger tank by Pam Allen last summer but hibernated it after finishing the front piece. This year I pulled it back out, worked the back piece and seamed it up. The pattern calls for Quince and Co Willet, a 100% organic cotton sport weight yarn. I chose the colorway Almond for my…

The V-Back Tee

The V-back Tee pattern can be purchased from my Ravelry store here. V is for versatility! Allow me to introduce you to my new design: The V-back Tee. It can be worn with the V in back or front, so it is delightfully reversible. The pattern is written for a five-color format but includes instructions…

Peanut Butter and Jelly Cardi

Is it a sandwich or a cardigan? Read on to find out… This Winterfell Cardigan is the first pattern I have knit by the designer Katrin Schneider, with whom I was not all that familiar before hearing about Winterfell. This cardi was one of those designs that I not only promptly added to my Ravelry…

The Shusui Shrug

  As with many of my projects, Shusui started with the announcement of a KAL on Instagram. Indeed, Fuse Fiber Studio, the host of the KAL, even had a nice selection of yarn that would work splendidly for this shrug. ‘Eh, I’ll have a look at her shop,’ I thought to myself. ‘I don’t really…

The Anniversaire Cardi: My First PomPom Knit

I stumbled across the Anniversaire pattern on Ravelry a few months ago and added it to my queue lickety-split. This cardigan, designed by Veera Välimäki for Issue 21 of PomPom Quarterly, has more texture by far than any garment I’ve ever made, but it wasn’t just the texture overload that appealed to me. This cardigan is…

Campside Cardi for Mother’s Day

I had been meaning to knit a cardigan for my mom for quite a while but struggled to find a pattern that would fit her petite frame. (She is the teeniest!) Just as I resigned myself to finding a children’s pattern that would suit her, I came across the Campside Cardi pattern. As you know…

Campside Cardi

Without shame, without apology, this yarn took up residence in my stash well before I conceived of a project for it. While I’ve grown meticulously systematic in planning my knitting projects, with impulsive buys kept to a minimum, do you blame me for this one slip-up? I mean, look at it. The yarn is Marquess…

Grellow Mon Manet

Reverse stockinette sweaters have become quite trendy lately, yet they are still not easy to find in stores. Partly because of the rareness of the style and partly because I adore the inside-out look, Mon Manet was thrown into my knitting queue the moment I saw it on Instagram. Designed by Jonna Hietala, Mon Manet…
