Thank Goodness for Last Year's Scirocco
Late to the game...but also ahead of the game?? That's how we'll view the project,  Honestly, y'all, I have been so awful about sewing.  It makes me feel horrible inside, and I know it shouldn't, but because I'm pretty stubborn about making the kids' clothi...

Cornish Tin II AND Colorwork?! Absolutely!
This hat is just gorgeous!  I'm so glad this yarn didn't have to sit in my stash for millions of months! I told myself that if I finished a few things for the kids, I could work on a couple things for me, and back when Cornish Tin II came out, I knew I had ...

Two Hats for the Family! Can You Fathom One is for ME?

Yes, Socks Receive Their Own Blog Post
Though socks for a child are but wee, I felt that since I knit two pairs for Camden this year (well, over the past 8 months), they get their own blog post. I used quite lovely yarn on both pairs, which makes it totally worth it ;) I finished the pink pair w...

Ballet and Hula Hoop - They DO Go Together!
Another one of those better late than never sort of posts! I only finished this Momoka sweater in September of 2016 an' all.  I honestly have no clue what took me so long to get photos and blog about it.  I have knit another of Sarah Ronchetti's patterns on...

Christmas In July....In December!
If you want drama with a pretty ending, here it IS! I seriously went insane in the membrane while knitting this sweater.  Something that should have been finished by mid-november or thereabouts took me 8927354 years to finish (well, a month and a half, anyw...

Sleepover Pajamas Do NOT Make Children Sleepier
Another been there, done that before pattern!  This was my third and fourth time sewing the Sleepover Pajamas by Oliver and S , and they turned out just as cute as always! The pattern is easy, and there aren't too many pattern pieces, which is nice.  Often,...
