Ongoing

So, I don’t know who exactly is in charge of the time-space continuum around here, but I’m really not sure it’s supposed to be the middle of January already. I mean, really? I thought we were still in the first week of the year – can’t a girl get a bit of procrastination time on […]

Urban Collection: Aberdeen Ave. Mittens and Hat

One of my goals as I began putting together ideas for my Urban Collection was to offer a set of patterns with balance; In theory, I wanted a person who might knit all of these items to have a knitted object for any occasion. In other words, if you had all these knitted items, you […]

For Winter

Hat knitting season tends to come upon me a bit later on, after winter has already gotten started. I think my first impulse is always towards sweaters, once fall gets going, and then by late December and early January it eventually occurs to me that, hang on a second, there are three more months of […]

Gateway

[ETA]: Gateway is now available on both Patternfish and in my Ravelry store! This past summer I travelled to San Francisco for several days following Sock Summit – you know, since I was already on the west coast and all. It was a great city to visit and I look forward to going back. One […]

Do-over

Every year I knit myself at least one pair of mittens or gloves. And every year, half of the pair I wear most often somehow manages to get lost. I suppose this is the normal way of things – I see so many single mittens or gloves along the side of city paths or sidewalks, […]

Azalea mitts

[Note from the future: this pattern is now available for download from the Sweet Sheep: Azalea Mitts] I tell ya, it’s either feast or famine around here when it comes to designs. I just got done showing off the Royale sweater to you (which, by the way, THANK YOU for all the lovely comments on […]

The last of the knits

(At least, the last knit from 2009, that is. Heh.) Over the holidays I was staying at the House of the Kitty Cats (a short walk away from the homestead), along with my aunt who was visiting as well as my grandfather. The kitties got food and various humans to harass, so it all worked […]

A Tale of Two Scarves

It would appear that my cold symptoms are continuing apace, though in a milder form than they could be, in which case I will renew efforts with vitamins and rest and tylenol and tea. And a bit of knitting on the side of my stack of grading. But this blog is long overdue for a […]

Stranded again

On Saturday afternoon I was merrily engaged in another Advanced Level Knitting Technique: In-Transit Stranded Colour-work. (Because really, if you’re not working up a colour-work hat while crammed onto a commuter bus sailing down the highway towards the big city, I just don’t think you’re as committed to this whole “knitting” thing as you should […]

Hello, People of the Pod

Pattern download link for most recent version, Dec 15th 2013: Podster mitts PDF For months now I’ve had this pattern brewing up in the back of my brain, just waiting for the opportune moment for me to cast on and write it out. After a while I started to think, “surely, someone else has done […]
