  • Spring Bucket List of Must Knits

    Don’t miss out. There is still time to win a skein of Quince Sparrow. See details here.  I am SO incredibly glad it is finally spring. We’ve been treated with a handful of sunny, warm days. Reed and I will hover on the front deck for lunchtime snacks after our morning walk to the river. He’ll ride …

  • The Man Socks Are Done!

    Don’t miss out. Win a skein of Quince Sparrow. See details here.  The Man Socks are done. Off the needles. Gifted. Slightly big for the recipient, I think. But all is well. They are done. Now I know. All future socks knit for ambiguous foot sizes, regardless of gender, will be knit using a simple ribbed …

  • Bunny Drama

    I am never knitting anything that requires a face again. Seriously. I just used the large majority of a brand new skein of brown embroidery floss (8.7 yards/meters) miserably making two pathetic beady eyes and some whiskers that insist on pointing in all the wrong directions. I wish I could say that was where my bunny …

  • Casting On Rosemont

    True to form, I am behind in the office Rosemont knit-a-long. Of course. I imagine my better half will bring the finished work to the office today, while I am only freshly cast-on myself and a mere one skein deep. (I can’t wait to see hers! I bet it will be super fab!) I will …

    Hey knitters! Read to the end of this post for a special 50% off Craftsy offer just for you!  Throughout my long and uneventful storied knitting lifespan, I have, with the exception of a single man-hat that incorporated very simple stripes in the most boring way possible (with color jogs at the joins, no less), never knit a project …

  • Sneak Peak: Softest Cowl Ever Knit

    Good morning from knitting nirvana. It’s all blissful wool fumes and roses over here (okay, tulips and irises…but roses soon enough!). My cowl is off the needles and blocked. Now all it needs is a fitting name for this super duper soft pattern and a proper photo shoot with my super hot knitwear model and beyond …

  • On the Precipice of Something

    Have you ever come to a place in your life where you pause and realize you are on a precipice? All you have to do is leap, although where you will land is unknown. Uncharted. Maybe it will be greatness.  Perhaps it will be an utter and total flop. There is no choice but to …

  • On A Mission

    I am a knitter on a mission. Focused. Driven. Determined. To finish this cowl. It’s all I want to do, knitting-wise. I love how the pattern is shaping up, and I can’t wait to share it with you. (Even though BOTH times I cast on my 300 stitches, I accidentally twisted before joining…so now it’s …

  • Essential Knitting Accessories

    Oh knitters. Yesterday on the way to preschool, Reed and I were listening to a children’s story podcast about a little girl having an adventure in the forest. The little girl just happened to be wearing a scarf. When the story was over, Reed asked:  Mama, will you knit me a scarf? My heart pretty …
