Time for a break!

Thursday, March 15th, 2012

It’s been a mad winter! Woolfest in January (I have to brag about my awesome booth that I totally neglected to photograph), then mass book knitting and a bit of photography, then a fucking TORNADO at the end of February that threw the town into chaos. Then I accidentally agreed to a bit more recovery […]

FREE PATTERN: Splash Swimsuit Coverup/Lace Minidress on Craft!

Thursday, August 4th, 2011

Free pattern on Craft Splash, knit in a mere 3 skeins of Lorna’s Laces Pearl (4 skeins for the L/XL)! As a swimsuit coverup: As a dress: I’m kind of loving lace right now. Lace is just such a bargain to knit that I can’t resist it. I mean, a 300g dress! And the short […]

Today I shot Splash, my upcoming Craftzine pattern, with the lovely Charlene, who has a figure that welcomes the camera instead of mortifying it (uh, me). The weather was gorgeous, windy, mild hot (nice hot, not the punishing 100-by-noon bullshit we’ve had the last couple weeks), and the setting was a pretty town lake in […]

I think the weather heard me. The wind just kicked up and the snow is […]

Free Convertible Hoodie Pattern on Craftzine!

Wednesday, January 26th, 2011

Lazy Weekend Convertible Hoodie Sweater I was so busy with the Insubordiknit workshop last weekend (very fun, by the way!) that I wasn’t able to post Lazy Weekend (ravelry), my new convertible hoodie sweater pattern that went up on Craftzine last Friday. It’s an oversized short-sleeved sweater for 3-seasons layering with an oversided removable hood […]

My Socks on Knitty! (And they’re worsted!)

Monday, January 17th, 2011

I’m very excited to have a pattern in the new knitty: Sweetheart Socks! (one of FIVE on ravelry by that name, yikes!) (Thanks to Marta for her feet & fireplace in those, plus Ron’s heel and my mom’s feet in the others!) I’m really proud of this pattern. It has a cable of my own […]

Tick, tock!

Monday, December 27th, 2010

Merry Christmas from my mom’s absurdly frisky doggies, Chloe, Eddie & Antonio: I was hoping to get just one Christmas card-worthy shot, but they are such spazzes, it’s impossible to get the three of them pausing long enough for a single shot. I can’t believe two of them are seniors. Of the dozens I took, […]
