Pink Pearl Headband

This is my first project with a back-story. Generally I take a long drive to Michaels Craft store and load up on yarn (usually in excess). The yarn for this headband came all the way from Vancouver, which is very far from my home in Toronto. After travelling to several states last year, I have …

Knit Mittens

I’ve opened the Pandora’s box of knitting. It was only a matter of time, but I knew that once was able to knit mittens there’d be no going back. As soon as I passed the struggle of starting a project on four needles, these mittens came together extraordinarily quickly. And as soon as I finished … Continue reading Knit Mittens

I have several baskets waiting in the wings, but this pattern is one of my particular favourites. Not only is extremely practical (I tend to hoard projects, so a functional project … Continue reading Twine Coaster

Cable Boot Socks

Although we’re still in the depths of winter up here in Canada, I can’t help but dream of crisp fall days. Besides the beautiful leaves and relatively mild weather, I love fall fashion and layering. I’m the kind of gal that will start wearing boots as soon as it’s socially acceptable (sometimes sooner), so wearing … Continue reading Cable Boot Socks
