  • Stormland Poncho Pattern Release

    Hey everyone! I’ve got something fun to share! (Besides the fact that it’s Cyber Monday over at Craftsy and the Easy Pie Wedge shawl kit I have been drooling over is $18 off. HUGE SAVINGS site-wide!) This Stormland (easy folded-style) poncho is my second (grey) poncho design this fall. The first was Stoneland, which I …

  • Winter Bucket List of Must Knits

    Um, so, (American) Thanksgiving is this tomorrow. Let me say that again. Thanksgiving is TOMORROW. I know! (I now digress into a total and utter panic over the three pies I am responsible for contributing. Three! Butter? Where’s the butter?!?!!?!?! And, why would we even bother with turkey when we can just eat pie? Seriously, …

  • On Knitting With Young Children

    (Alternative title: On Knitting Despite Having Young Kids.) Knitting with kids isn’t always easy. In fact, it’s often hard. Like the time Reed raced through the house with my pricey skein of delicate Woolfolk, which was still attached to my cowl, criss crossing yarn around the dining room chairs in a wool web of hell, cackling …

  • Ari’s Wish (Finally, Redemption!)

    Hi! My name is Ari. I live down the road from Reed, so he likes to play with my big brother a lot. I don’t mind. I find it fascinating to watch them run around like monkeys, screeching and making all kinds of racket. (Auntie Andrea seems less enthused about all the messes they make.) Reed’s …

  • Sheltered Poncho In-Progress

    I feel like I’ve been working on this poncho (Sheltered by Andrea Mowry) for a long time. This is probably because I HAVE been working on this poncho for a long time. I’ve been knitting my long-coveted poncho (with Brooklyn Tweed’s Shelter) almost exclusively for nearly two months. All my design work has been set aside as I …

  • Lion’s Sweater

    Reminder! All of my patterns are 30% off this week only with the code TKL30.   Reed takes his stuffed lion everywhere. Like, EVERYWHERE, everywhere. Earlier this year, we arrived at our weekend campsite to discover Lion was missing. Reed was so sad. But, we all got to celebrate a few days later when we …

  • Super Duper Holiday-Whooper Sale!!!

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news (good news?), but Christmas is in seven weeks. I KNOW. I knew there was a reason I have been feeling so old lately. And, Hanukkah starts right around Christmas Eve. Yep. You do Kwanzaa? Whelp, you’re screwed too. That’s the day after Christmas. [I will pause …

  • Knitting on a Plane

    If I had my druthers between being a Traveler and being a non-Traveler, I’d choose traveler. I like going places, even if I have been there before but especially if I’m going someplace new. I don’t always get to travel. It’s a pricey affair these days and time is scarce. Someday. I spent quite a …
