If It Ain't Broke

I have a tendency to do patterns over and over again. If I like something, I really like it. You'd think with all the thousands of patterns on Ravelry I'd venture out a little further but I'm the type who knows her strengths ....more

Stripe Study Shawl

Last we spoke I was doing the Stripe Study Shawl in a variegated and a blue color. After doing a good portion of the shawl I felt that the blue was getting lost in the variegated yarn so I had to switch it up. I should have listened to Rich who told me from the get go to use an orange, that wasn't in the variegated yarn, or a yellow ....more

Shawl Along

Brigit and I are great knitting companions. We both like to primarily knit socks. We like the same yarns ....more

Vogue Knitting Live has been happening here in New York City for a while now. I've resisted going in the past but my friend Kate asked if I was going this year and I decided to give it a try. It was held at the Marriott Marquis in Times Square which is a nice, big hotel ....more

Two Hats, One Yarn

During my subscription to the Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks That Rock Club I got some gorgeous yarn including this sport weight, or medium weight as they refer to it, skein of Pacific Crest Trail. I decided to find something on my own to make instead of using one of the lovely patterns that came with the yarn. The first thing I made was a Rikke hat for Glenn ....more

Mo' Mitts

I'm trying to use up my partial skeins of yarn so I'm looking for smaller projects. I'm not a big fan of color work, read that as I suck at it, so I'm trying to use one skein per project. I came across Clara Parkes Je Suis Jolie Mitts which are super easy and warm ....more
