Cable Studies

This post is a bit different from my usual “patterns”. The more I delve into knitting patterns, the more I realize that my pattern writing is seriously lacking. They help me recall projects, although a more experienced writer would cringe. But I digress… I’d really just like to share some of the new cables I’ve learned … Continue reading Cable Studies

Pillow Cover

When I started this project I had no idea how long it would take. For something so simple (it’s really just two squares woven together) it ended up being the most knitting I’ve ever done. I almost feel ready to make a sweater at this point — and I say almost because it isn’t happening … Continue reading Pillow Cover

Brioche Scarf

Brioche stitch, where have you been all my life? Dramatic? Maybe, but I’m seriously obsessed with this stitch. I have a confession to make: I often browse the knits in stores and try to dissect them. Without looking like a nut, I try to figure out how it was achieved, and the brioche stitch was … Continue reading Brioche Scarf

Seed Beanie

Anyways, I’ve been gearing myself up for … Continue reading Seed Beanie

Now that my mommy rant is over, I found a cute way to keep my ankles warm and re-style my fall boots. I debated whether or not … Continue reading Leg Warmers

Seattle Beanie

When I took a trip to Vancouver/Seattle late last year, I was surprised to find so many crafty shops and, of course, yarn. This particular beanie is made from a couple skeins I picked up in Seattle, so it’s been a long time in the making. You can imagine my boyfriend’s dismay to find himself … Continue reading Seattle Beanie

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
