My Version of the Buttons Cowl by Tanis Lavallee

I fell in love with the buttons cowl pattern by Tanis Lavallee of Tanis Fiber Arts some time last year. I had tucked it away for a while and decided to knit it up this past fall. 223 more words

I'd Rather Be Cruising!

Sometimes a pattern takes an unexpected turn on you. After ‘Sandy’, which was beautiful but complex, I really needed a turn-your-brain-off knit. I was also feeling super inspired by a skein of Cosmic Blue Label that Tanis had sent me for her colour shifting scarf. 294 more words

Looks like “I’d Rather be Cruising” will be ready for release Tuesday morning :) What’s better than the easiest shawl ever? A shawl that comes in both 1 and 2-skein versions. 8 more words


Sneak Peek - I'd Rather Be Cruising!

My latest design; simple, mindless, but super lovely. 2 skeins, 2 colours (and therefore generously sized, no neck kerchief this time!), 2 rows to remember for the body, and 2 rows to remember for the lace. 43 more words


The Improved Colour Shifting Scarf

I created a second colour shifting scarf for Tanis, and I made some tweaks that I think really improved the design.

I used a 10-dent heddle instead of 12 which greatly improved the drape and allowed me to warp to 80”, which meant that after I cut off the loom waste Tanis was left with a more generous sized scarf at 65” long and about 15” wide. 285 more words

Casting on ALL of the Sweaters

I have a sweater deadline. This sweater that should have been finished weeks ago… But instead of finishing up said sweater I made sure I cast on the three sweaters I’m planning for me this year, cause that’s important right?
