  • Take Me to the Party – The Shawl to End All Shawls

    This is the Little White Shawl version of the Little Black Dress. Everyone needs one. I call it Take Me to the Party. Secret #1: if you start knitting it now, it’ll be done in time for the holiday parties. Secret #2: it glimmers. There are sequins! Because I am that adult that glances longingly …

  • Dispatch: Welcome Fall

    These early fall days are always such a treat—still warm with rays of golden light yet cool enough to wear tunics with leggings. We enjoyed four (dirty, stinky, fun) camping trips this past summer, the last of which resulted in a record number of fish hooked in a picturesque Sonoma pond. The pond was brimming …

    Or rather, because leggings are where it’s at. I’ll admit, I was anti-legging for a very long time. I didn’t feel comfortable wearing tight black pants.

Apparently I forgot that I live on the southern edge of what might technically be defined as the Pacific Northwest. You …

  • Lesley Pullover is Off the Needles

    This just goes to show that if you keep a pattern in your queue for two years and add it to a zillion and one bucket lists, eventually you might actually knit the darn thing. Furthermore, it MIGHT actually fit. How ’bout that. I am pleased to hereby announced that Lesley by Hannah Fettig is …

  • My Favorite New Knit for Fall: Bayland Cowl

    I’ll be honest. I am devastated that summer is coming to end. I truly am. I love the heat. The sun. The swimming. All the light that never seems to end. And then there’s fall. Which has its own positive attributes. Pretty leaves. Pumpkin scented candles. Golden tinted light. My new Bayland Cowl reminds me …
