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

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

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?
