Braided Series

When I first began knitting I fell in love with cabling. As a newbie, a successful cable made me feel extremely accomplished. And to be honest, it still does! I recently came across a braided cable tutorial (linked below) and couldn’t wait to create something. Since my attention span limits me to mainly headbands and … Continue reading Braided Series

Sunset Series

I recently filled this summer’s R&R quota on a week-long beach vacation. The small town borders Lake Huron and is known for its out-of-this-world beautiful sunsets (the picture below doesn’t do them justice). Anyways, the cottage we rented happened to have handmade dishcloths, and the town had a yarn outlet. Obviously this led to a … Continue reading Sunset Series

Garden Beanie

When winter ended, I swore I was going to venture away from hats. They are like my unavoidable safety net of knitting. Besides, everyone I know is tired of receiving hats. I don’t even save my knit goods for gift-giving occasions anymore. “Happy Thursday, have a hat.” Somebody stop me. So what makes this a … Continue reading Garden Beanie

Linen Cowl

I recently discovered the one stitch to rule them all. A stitch that can make even an amateur like me look like a pro: The linen stitch. I have a feeling that everything I make from here on out will be made from this stitch. Well, not actually, but I will use it until I … Continue reading Linen Cowl

Candy Floss Cowl

Spring is coming. My joint seasonal and Game of Thrones excitement aside, I was suffering from some serious winter blues. Even with warmer weather headed our way, I can’t help but continue knitting—obviously! Actually, the cold was getting to me so bad that I stopped knitting for a while. I couldn’t bring myself to do … Continue reading Candy Floss Cowl

Grey Heart Beanie

It’s a Canadian cliché to talk about the weather, so I promise that I won’t this time around. Let’s just say that I’m still very much motivated to knit (it’s still very cold—that’s all). This beanie is a product of a very lazy weekend and determination to create gift-worthy pieces. Although I love knitting—and create … Continue reading Grey Heart Beanie

Cable Hat

It’s next level cold here in Canada and I’m sick of it. I just had to put that little complaint out there. We also just had another 5+ inches of snow—ok that’s it, promise. The only benefit to the chilly weather is my increased drive to knit. Benefit, you ask? I’ll take what I can … Continue reading Cable Hat

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

Cup Cozy

Another cup cozy? Yes. Not only can I no longer handle a little bit of coffee cup heat on my hands but I’m also a cup cozy fiend. After I figured out how to knit a cozy, a crochet version wasn’t too far behind. I actually like the crochet version more. Crochet is generally thicker, … Continue reading Cup Cozy

Seed Headband

When I started knitting, I rarely wore the projects I made. I started giving them away to anyone who would wear them (the poor souls…), or stashing them away as proof of what I had done. Luckily I’ve moved on from then to create pieces that I can actually wear—this headband, for example. Not only … Continue reading Seed Headband
