Loose Knit

I’m out of practice! I’ve been doing so much crocheting for the #125WeddingBlankets (fingers crossed we can actually have 125 guests at our wedding by June…. but that’s a whole ‘nother tangled ball of stress) that my fingers are out of knitting practice. My stitches are loose! When I first started knitting I had the …

A Little Birdy

I tend to pick pretty basic yarns as my favorites. Even though I used to hand dye yarn as a business I gravitate toward solids and semi solids. Every once in a while, though, I find a multi and the vibe is right. Lion Brand’s Stitchbird yarn is one of those yarns. I only even …

Semi Simple

I used to design a lot of things with very complex patterning. Mostly shawls. They required you to be following a chart pretty much at all times. These are like alone time projects. I don’t have that type of focused stitching time any more. So as my lifestyle has changed I’ve become more a fan …

For the past two years I’ve had a full time day job, still within the yarn industry, but not involving working as a designer. It has meant many long hours of train commuting and a different perspective on what I want to create. What I want to [primarily] make now are projects with repeats I …

Forest Hills Wrap: A FREE Knitting Pattern

This breezy knitting pattern was inspired by the yarn choice. Most of the time I pick the yarn before I come up with the project and this was no exception. Rewind yarn came out last year (2018) from Lion Brand and I grabbed some up right away. It’s a bulky tape yarn, but it’s light …

Pattern Writing: The Avalon Knit Tank Top

Today started off rather sleepy. The past few days I’ve been dragging, but last night I got myself dressed up and went to dinner. It was fun, but knocked me on my butt. I slept until noon. What??! I know I’m not feeling well when that happens. I’m usually an up by 7 on the …
