  • Jen’s 1st Quarter Knit Report

    Hawser Sweater Ravelry Post Pattern: Hawser by Brooklyn Tweed Yarn: Brooklyn Tweed Shelter in Cast Iron I decided I needed to knit this sweater after seeing Erica’s beautiful version back in February of last year. I had to finish a few things up before starting, but cast on at the end of August. I definitely stalled out […]

Colorado Roku Ravelry Post Pattern: Roku Yarn: Malabrigo […]

  • Socks, Sweaters & Styling Handmade Garments

    I’m about to go on a bit of a tangent with this post while trying to pull together a few different ideas that are floating through my head. I’ll try to wrap it up somewhere by the end of the post, but no promises will be made. Before I get started I want to let you […]

  • Three Hats- Love, Like, Hate

    Well hey there, it’s been a while! I’m trying to ease back into this blogging thing – it really does become hard to start back up once you’ve gone a while without writing anything. So to get rolling, today I have three previously unblogged hats for you and for one reason or another, I’m not […]

  • The Bellows Cardigan

    May I present to you my new favorite cardigan, the Bellows Cardigan. This was my last finished knit of 2014 (which apparently was the year of the sweater for me) and I’ve only just gotten around to getting my winter photo situation worked out and photographing it. The pattern is Bellows designed by Michele Wang […]

  • Brooklyn Tweed Stonecutter

    After a year of on again, off again, then totally on knitting, my Stonecutter (ravelry link) is done and photographed! I am absolutely in love with this sweater so get ready because I’m about to wax poetic all over this sucker. Lets start with the basics… Pattern: Stonecutter by Michele Wang for Brooklyn Tweed Yarn: […]

  • Handknit: Benton Sweater

    It’s been a while since I’ve done a finished project post but I’m getting back on the horse and today we have my finished Benton Sweater! I started this sweater in mid April when I needed a road trip knitting project. Stonecutter seemed a little intense for taking on the road so a quick Ravelry searching revealed this […]

  • Knitted | Bray Hat by Brooklyn Tweed

    Fall has arrived, let the knitting posts commence! I was seriously drooling when the Autumn ’13 Brooklyn Tweed patterns came out, those colors, the photography, the cables! Talk about a company that has their branding on point. Anyway, I totally fell in love with the Bray hat and Stonecutter sweater. Hard. I haven’t knit anything […]

  • Seafaring Socks

    New socks from my favorite old pattern, Priscilla’s Dream Socks, this time knit up with tinier needles and yarn. I usually use a sport weight but this time went with fingering. The yarn is Patons Kroy Ragg Shades in Grey Brown Marl (quite a long name there) and woah woah I love these stripes. I […]

  • Hot Water Bottle Cozy

    Well well well, I finally have a new finished project post. I actually finished this a few days (weeks) ago but was having a horrible time setting up photos of it. The thing about not having my own apartment yet is that taking photos in a setting that remotely resembles the tone I’ve established is […]

  • Icelandic “Puffin Pony” Sweater

    I can’t believe it, but my Icelandic sweater is finally done and has been worn multiple times already! I took it for a work day with my friend Julia who took these photos. The pinecone came from her hometown of Pacific Grove, CA, can you believe how huge it is? We definitely don’t get pinecones […]

  • Evergreen Hat

    I made this hat a last month from some KnitPicks Merino Style yarn using the Simple Pleasures Hat pattern from Purl Soho. I lost my hat in a car in NYC last November and went all winter without one which was a little inconvenient so I decided I needed one this year. It was getting […]

  • The Last 2012 Projects

    I have a few last projects of 2012, both gifts for my sister for Christmas. She, like me, has some of the world’s coldest feet so I knit her up a pair of socks to keep them warm. Same pattern as all my socks, Priscilla’s Dream Socks knit up in KnitPicks Felici Sport. I swear […]
