Chevrons Forever

June 3, 2013

A few weeks ago my friend Lauren asked me to make an outfit she could wear on stage. Her band, The Lovely Bad Things, was going on tour with Best Coast in the hot-ass South.

Cutting the fabric was a bit stressful as there was no room for error. It was vintage and taken from a worn garment so I had to avoid the holes and marks.  After the skirt was finished I was left with an 8″ long piece for the top. Thank GOODNESS I didn’t mess up. I would have died.

Thank you Lauren!

Life’s been hectic but in the best way possible. Posts won’t be as frequent but this blog isn’t dead.

Trust.

Tassels are Underrated

March 3, 2013

I had four thousand-yard cones of this charcoal yarn but didn’t know what to make with it. It was a shawl, three cardigans, two cowls, and one pullover before it ended up as this scarf.

I still have three and a half cones left. Now what?!

There’s No Such Thing As Too Much Grey

My friend asked me for a cowl a few months ago. It took a bit of coercing but eventually I agreed. I went back and forth between something classic, like a heavily cabled scarf, or something more current. When I asked his preference all he said was, “It’s up to you. Surprise me.” That only made it 10x harder.

Fast forward to last week, it hit me. Iz by Andi. Simple. Awesome. Perfect.

I almost changed my mind about giving it to him. If he doesn’t like it, he better lie.

Fingerless Mitts

December 29, 2012

Christmas at the Grove

My Mom requested plain fingerless mitts for Christmas. I used this pattern with  a few modifications.

(Those are my brother’s hands by the way. He was channeling his inner hand model in that second photo)

I used DPNs for the fingers and it was a giant clusterfuck. It didn’t help that I needed five but only had four. Magic loop is my preference but the circumference was too small and the stitches too spread out for it to work.

The ends were a pain to weave in but the finished mitts are awesome. I started a pair for myself  with some left over felted tweed. I have a few more repeats to work before I get to the fingers but think it’ll be less fiddly this time.

Hope everyone’s having a great weekend!

Merry Christmas!
