New Favorites: Griffin by Bristol Ivy

It’s the little things, truly. This new Griffin Sweater by Bristol Ivy is easy for me to like. It’s gansey-inspired, shawl-collared, and — being a Bristol pattern — a little construction puzzle to be solved. 113 more words

New Favorites: This stitch pattern

This is a really cute little shrug — Tillie by Pam Allen. (I think Pam Allen is the queen of shrugs.) But what I’m particularly in love with is the stitch pattern! 53 more words

New Favorites: Exceptional shawl-collars

Both of these have been alluded to in previous posts, but we are hurtling toward the end of the year (hell-o, November!) when I’ll look back and put together my Favorite New Favorites* of 2016 — the things I most want to not forget to knit someday — and these two have to be properly in the mix, because they’re two of the most covetable sweaters I’ve seen all year: 60 more words

New Favorites: Hoods

Eventually it will cool off, right? I’m not actually complaining — don’t get me wrong — this Indian Summer suits me just fine. It looks like Fall but feels like the sort of summer weather I can get behind, and because it’s October I can get away with boots if I feel like it. 177 more words

In last week’s post, I encouraged us (me included) to dwell on positive, lovely, beautiful, true things.

New Favorites: Every stitch of the Tov collection

I mentioned recently that I’d gotten a sneak peek from the set of the shoot for a new collection and that there was a cardigan I was losing sleep over. 427 more words

New Favorites: Mitten mania

I’m heading for the frozen tundra of Northern Minnesota today for Knitting With Company — ok, highs in the mid-40s but that sounds pretty effing cold to me right now! 265 more words
