  • Introducing Knitley Road

    So far, the Year of the Indie Dyer has brought me nothing but amazing things. This pursuit has turned a formerly one-woman show into a team effort, and that is truly much more fun.  Last month, I shared my first sneak peak of one of my more recent projects featuring yarn from Knitley Road. I was lucky enough …

  • ‘Bout Time!!! Pansyland Cowl Release!!!!

    HeeellllooooooooOOOOOO, Spring! AKA welcome endless days of rain and rain and rain on my delicate, little flower buds. And mud puddles. LOTS of mud puddles. It’s such a tease. I want to go outside, but then I stick my little toe out the door and quickly realize: actually knitting on the sofa will do just fine. …

  • Tune Ups

    One of my goals for the year is to update and triple check my earliest patterns to make sure they are ABSOLUTELY perfect. No mistakes. Because I don’t have enough to do. I took my original Twist Cowl pattern with me to Panama, figuring it would be a good travel knit. It was. I used …

  • No, It’s Not Secretly Fall

    Unless you live south of the equator. Which I don’t. I simply don’t plan well. That’s all. I used to be a good planner. I even own a planner. Several actually. I just haven’t been able to properly apply good use of said planner(s). I basically live in chaos, but that’s okay. This cowl (knit …

  • Solution to Too Many Scraps: A Leftovers Cowl

    In our house, I am the primary consumer of leftovers. I attribute this to at least an extra ten pounds of, well, squish. Reed won’t even LOOK at leftovers in the fridge. The thought of eating something two days in a row is unfathomable to him, lest it be cookies or cake. This leaves me with …

  • Reed’s Sweater: Locksley by Emily Ringelman

    One of the many things about having kids is sometimes they make you surprise even yourself. As in, you’re out the door, gracing your back yard with your p.j.-clad presence shortly after 7:00 a.m. to send your son shooting down the normally gently sloped back yard on his sled, laughing as he chants at tremendous …

  • Ten MORE Knitting Lessons I Learned the Hard Way

    Oh knitters. I hate to say it, but the year is winding down. I am glancing at my calendar (with tremendous angst) and realizing just how close we are to the end of December. Maybe, for you, 2016 was your best year ever. Or maybe it was your worst. Either way, I am guessing knitting …

  • Sheltered Poncho — Off the Needles!

    One of the joys of living in (far) northern California are the occasional warm, winter beach days. Brief windows of heaven between storms. IF we are lucky. I’ve been complaining so much lately about how frigid it has been…and how cold I feel All. The. Time. Then I looked at the thermometer and realized it …

  • On Why Knitting Makes Me Fat

    Hazards of knitting (besides sitting on a pointy knitting needle and bleeding to death): Decide to knit BIG poncho and buy 10 skeins of Really Expensive Yarn. Surely 1300 yards (1189 meters) oughta do it. Or at least that’s what the pattern says. Buying expensive yarn = stress. Eat chocolate. Knit and knit and knit …
