New! Windy Sea Pullover September 9, 2020 04:47 1 Comment

Drifter - New Pattern! September 3, 2020 03:10

Simple Stockinette stitch is so often underappreciated. I've waxed and waned with my attraction to it throughout my knitting experience. At the moment, with all that's going on in the world (2020 OMG!), I'm thoroughly appreciating the repetitive, simplicity of Stockinette. There are no surprises—it's always the same, and easy.

Summer Cast-on Magazine & the Mazar Pullover May 6, 2020 16:22

Something I love about hand-dyed yarn is that the beautiful and unique colors can make a basic stockinette sweater into a piece of art. However, I still need the knitting itself to be somewhat interesting—which is why I think the Mazar Pullover is the perfect pattern for hand-dyed yarn. Read more.

The days here in Maine are finally becoming warmer and I've been enjoying spending time in the yard barefoot and without a coat. As the temps turn, my mind drifts toward summer knits, which is perfect since the Summer 2020 issue of Interweave Knits has just arrived! Read more.


New Pattern - Sati Cardigan March 8, 2020 09:17

Knitting is as much about the experience of making something as it is about having a finished product. In the Sati Cardigan pattern, there are lots of interesting things going on, though the finished sweater appears pretty basic and simple.

Njord Pullover in Cast on Spring 2020 February 1, 2020 02:48

I don't know about you, but the prospect of Spring has me thinking of warm-weather knits. Some of my favorite things about Spring and Summer knits are organic cotton, short sleeves and wearing pullovers instead of cardigans. The Njord Pullover is all of those!

Seamless knitting is somewhat of a passion of mine. Is it obvious? Maybe you're wondering what the big deal is about seamless knitting, or maybe you've tried it and love it as much as I do. If you haven't ever knit a seamless sweater, let me tell you what I love about it:

The Alice Hoodie Knit Along starts July 15th! July 8, 2016 06:00

I was feeling silly the night the Alice Hoodie was inspired. I swatched it in a single-ply bulky yarn, and tentatively named it "Squishy Wishy." I posted on twitter asking people if they would knit something with that name. I was surprised—people seemed pretty open to it. So I kept that title as I mailed the submission to Knitscene…
