Have you ever seen a photo online and wanted to recreate the feel of it in your own life? I saw this warm, romantic, and slightly vintage looking photo, and I just knew I wanted to create a sweater that evoked the same feeling. Enter the Rebecca Pullover. I knit this with Wool and the Gang Crazy Sexy Wool so it’s giant and oversized and definitely going to keep me warm during the spring. It’s perfect to wear with all my high… Read more »

The Mojave Miniskirt is a very fun twist on the desert motif, evoking the bright colors and the hot sun in a fun transitional knit for spring! The skirt is fitted through the waist and hips with an elastic waistband to ensure a snug fit. Knit from the bottom up and featuring intarsia and duplicate stitches, the pattern is across the center front and back, with a border in garter stitch to really emphasize the pattern and give the skirt… Read more »

Welcome to November’s Monthly Chatter! I’m so sorry for the delay, but I want a few finished objects to show you… and then I had a few technical difficulties. But it’s here! In November’s Monthly Chatter: I chat a lot about the holidays – I was really emotional over Thanksgiving, and now I’m really excited for December and Christmas. (And did I mention I learned to knit over the holidays a few years ago?) You know I have more to… Read more »

Finally my obsession with sweater dresses and wiggle dresses and knitting collide! I’m so happy to introduce to you the Cozy Vintage Dress, published in the December issue of I Like Knitting.   It’s fitted, it’s a modified rib, it has a zipper – I’m pretty sure it’s perfect! 😉 Check out my video where I gush all about my inspiration and then explain sizes and materials: Size: Finished Bust Size 32 (36, 40, 44, 48)” to fit bust 34… Read more »

Since it’s nearing that weird time of the year where I feel like it’s too late to start another summer top, but it’s too early to focus on fall and winter knit pieces, I’ve been thinking a lot about home decor. I know some people go a little overboard and knit everything, like cozies for their apples and eggs (seriously, WHY?!), but I tried to keep my knitting wish list a bit more practical! As usual, there’s a mixture of free… Read more »

I am so excited to introduce this tank top to you guys! It’s part of Knitty’s Spring + Summer 2016 collection, and my tank top is the surprise for the issue, which technically came out a little over a month ago. Surprise!   Lake Diamond was inspired by the hot summer days spent chasing a cool breeze. A lacy, cotton tank top is perfect for summer. The open lacework is stylish and will keep you cool, whether you’re spending a day… Read more »

Usually people who love fall and winter, or at least love cuddling up in oversized sweaters and blankets and maybe even watching sports, also love to knit. Me? I’m not a fan of cold weather, and I’d much prefer to spend my time on a beach or in a park – when it’s over 75 degrees out. Part of the reason I resisted knitting for so long was because I hate scarves. I’m also not a fan of shawls or socks,… Read more »

I am so excited to introduce the Catalina Beach Sweater! I almost gave up on summer knitting, but I was inspired at the end of July to do one more beach sweater – and this is perfect because it easily transitions for the fall season. The Catalina Beach Sweater is a great transitional piece for your wardrobe. Designed to be worn on those cooler, summer nights, the Catalina is knit with cotton yarn and designed with lace eyelets and chevron… Read more »

I just wanted to let you know that I’m featured over on the Solopreneur Business Network podcast. I’m talking knitting, creativity, and starting my own business. I was also asked my favorite quote, and I really butchered the Ira Glass quote above, but I wanted to include it for you here. I’m pretty the quote was not originally intended for knitters, but it applies to knitting and, really, to anything you do. In other news, last Friday I was challenged to… Read more »
