What's on My Needles This Weekend

As usual, the needles are full this weekend.  I’ve spent most of the week working on a test knit (a cool poncho) and a commissioned piece (my 5th mermaid lapghan!).   612 more words


FO Spotlight: Thundercloud Baby

I just finished up this test knit for cashmerejunkie of Taiga Hilliard Designs. It’s the second test I’ve done for her and I may or may not have six more in the next couple of months. 345 more words


The Hard Knit Life

The Hard Part:

So I’ve been waiting to write. It’s harder to come back the further you get from the last post…funny though, because I keep working on projects or come across an Instagram post full of inspiration or catch little windows of time to listen to a podcast and I think about how I want to be writing on the blog and connecting will all the wonderful people I worked so hard to connect with over the last 18 months. 619 more words

Faethe Shawl Test Knit

I responded to a call for testers for a Meridith Shepherd Designs design called Faeth Shawl. And opted for the DK weight version. (The pattern can be knit from lace weight to bulky.) 190 more words


Prioritization Fail

I’ve got tens of thousands of things to do. No, literally–it’ll take that many stitches to get me ready for Christmas gifting. It seems like I’m behind on reading approximately that many blog posts, too. 109 more words


100 Meter Kick

If you look at me now, you would never know it, but I used to be quite the runner. I was mostly an 800 meter runner, but I could run a pretty good quarter too. 176 more words


Infinity Shawl Test WIP

So I’ve started testing patterns for designers on Ravelry.com. I really enjoy trying new things, and I’ve found that testing provides me with opportunities to try knitting & crocheting things I don’t usually make. 665 more words
