V-Back Tee DK

First and foremost, Black Lives Matter! ALL Black Lives Matter. No, this is not a movement that has been generated by the left so that they can push their evil agendas. Observe, pay attention and listen to your heart. Black people are dying, and it’s not right. On Monday the Supreme Court ruled that LGBTQ…

The Great Christmas Hat-a-thon

In the two weeks leading up to Christmas, I cranked out four hats for gifts for my husband’s family. Earlier in the season I also knit a hat for a friend, as well as a hat for a newborn. That’s six hats! Below are the details for each hat. Be sure to let me know…

Scrappy V: My New Summer Design

Isn’t Alli’s rainbow Scrappy V just amazing?! My favorite and most used yarn weight is, without a doubt, sock yarn. After wrapping up a shawl, sweater, pair of socks or some other fingering weight project, I am known to place my leftover balls of yarn on a shelf. Each day I walk by said shelf…

Contour Cardi: My New Design

The Contour Cardi pattern can be purchased from my Ravelry store here. Soon after releasing The V-Back Tee pattern, I  had been thinking about a design akin to the V-back, only with the line of symmetry for the German short rows placed at the side seams (as opposed to the center back). After much sketching…

Sophie’s Apple Picking Socks

When I gaze upon this yarn, I think of sunny days and rainbows and spring. When I both gaze upon and say the name of this yarn (“Apple Picking”) completely different images are evoked: autumn skies, going back to school, playgrounds and–not surprisingly–apples. The yarn brand is Must Stash Yarn, a company out of Texas…

Marled Mania Leggings in Blue

The idea of knit leggings appealed to me from the start, but marled striped leggings? That’s just genius. This pattern is the Marled Mania Leggings by Westknits, and boy did Stephen ace this one! Few things in life are more satisfying than knitting an entire project solely from stash. I don’t like keeping a large…

Jelly Roll Sweater

Congrats to Isabelle Brunette for being the giveaway winner! Thanks to all who took the time to comment below. I will be replying to each of you soon if I haven’t already. One day a few weeks back as I was aimlessly rummaging through my stash, I unearthed a couple of skeins of yarn from…

Underwing Mitts

Few knitting designs have captivated me like Erica Heusser’s Underwing Mitts. All of her stunning accessory patterns feature intriguing colorwork designs, but the underwings spoke to me the loudest. As a little girl one of my favorite activities was to catch insects for my dad’s bug collection. Sometimes I caught them by hand–usually unsuspecting beetles…

Flipside Goldfoil Socks

You may recall that I knit a hat (Fleesensee) from Verena Cohrs of The Wool Club last week. Unvaryingly, these Goldfoil socks are a pattern from the same designer. Clearly I am a fan of her work! This lovely cool-toned yarn with warm accents is called Flipside and is a product of the very talented…

Sophie’s So Faded

I’m fairly new to Andrea Mowry’s knitting patterns and only became familiar with her earlier this year when she released the Find Your Fade shawl, which uses a very similar fading process to the So Faded sweater pictured above. I have found that I am strongly attracted to knitting any kind of fade or blend….
