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!

Merry Christmas to those who celebrate and happy happy holidays to everyone else!

My mini collection is finished! The  final zipper was sewed in last Monday.

I wanted to document the whole process but things got too crazy towards the end. Here are a few pictures:

This is my bandaged thumb after I sewed through it. They say it happens to everyone in this field at least once.

Sequins galore

As soon as the madness was over I cast on a moebius cowl. I needed something simple to work on while I caught up on all my shows.

I wore it to lunch with my friend a few days later. We were pretty embarrassing in our matching outfits. It wasn’t planned though, swear.

We matched. It wasn't planned. I made that cowl.

The beanie I started last month stayed a beanie. While Hugo would have looked ridiculously cute in it as a sweater, he can’t be trusted with nice things. I’ll probably sew something a little less delicate for him.



Hope you guys have been well! It’s been a while, I know.
