Bring on Fall: Agnes Cardigan

Bring on Fall: Agnes Cardigan

In 2011, I knit what would become a favorite sweater of mine. Agnes, in cozy Quince and Co Puffin is a classic top-down raglan pullover with a little something extra…contrast-lined pockets! At 3 sts an inch, it flies off the needles. The original Agnes pattern […]

New patterns for kids and adults!

I’ve been a neglectful blogger, and 4 new patterns have come out since we last spoke! I’ve been busy trying to balance my time between this work that I need to do, and enjoying some time with my 4 and 6 year old daughters, as […]

New Pattern: Pines Cardigan

New Pattern: Pines Cardigan

When your handknit loving 3-year-old asks you to knit her a sweater, how can you say no? My daughter V spotted some dark blue Berroco Remix in my tiny stash and requested a “blue sweater with a little bit of buttons”, so I thought it’d […]

First Night Hat

First Night Hat

Ever have one of those skeins of yarn that is just so beautiful, that you agonize over what to make with it? This yarn, Fibre Co Cumbria, is a lovely 90% wool, 10% mohair, and my absolute favorite shade of yellow that goes perfectly with my Robin’s egg blue Agnes sweater. But, I ripped and re-knit this skein so many times, trying to make a hat design that I’d wear all the time. Finally, I realized that what I really wanted was the texture of simple knits and purls, so that’s what I went with. We’ve been experiencing sub-zero temps in Massachusetts this week, and this hat has been a permanent fixture on my freezing skull. I LOVE it.

First Night uses just 1 skein of Cumbria, and is a combination of just knits and purls for the design, finished with basic decreases. The pattern is both written out and charted. And, if you use the code NEW at checkout on Ravelry, it’ll take 50% off your purchase until January 10th. See First Night on Ravelry.

Peaks and Summit Hats

(because someone always asks about the boots, they are Keens) My little family of 4 has been passing around a cold this week, and we’ve been glued to the couch and our hot water bottles. I’ve been all about the instant-gratification knitting, and WEBS’ Valley […]
