Written on January 26, 2014 at 4:50 pm, by

Thank you all so much for your thoughtful responses to collections as a way to release patterns. I really appreciate knowing what works for you! In the end I decided on a hybrid approach: I’ll release my sweater patterns in groups, all at the same time, and offer them both ways: In collections, and as  Continue Reading

On knitting, gifts, and love.

Written on December 14, 2013 at 12:18 am, by

I love the holidays for so many reasons. I adore the celebrations. The time with my family is the most precious thing in the world to me. I’m a huge fan of winter, and love the twinkly lights and evergreen smells that abound. There’s no better time to pull up with a warm mug of  Continue Reading

Fashion Friday: Morning Coffee

Thoughts are swirling around inside my head this weekend, and I’m excited to share them with you. But they’re being stubborn, and difficult to capture on the page. So this Fashion Friday, how about a sweater instead? Buy your own full, standalone Morning Coffee pattern for $7.00 by clicking here: buy now Or buy your  Continue Reading

Daydreams and Timelines

Written on November 18, 2013 at 9:00 am, by

Thanks to the wonder of living in the time and place that I do, I am writing this post on a plane to San Francisco. Tomorrow Jackie and I will be doing a whirlwind yarn store tour (yay, CustomFit LYS!)… …and here, on this plane, I’m daydreaming about my Knit-A-Long sweater. I have a couple  Continue Reading

Making Clothes (A CustomFit KAL)

Written on November 14, 2013 at 4:13 pm, by

On Saturday, CustomFit will be a month old. Jackie and I were talking about this on the long drive to NY last weekend, and about the next sweaters we plan to make for ourselves. You see, we’re using the same yarn. And I mean the exact same yarn. It’s the coppery yarn in this picture,  Continue Reading

My Saturday Rhinebeck sweater this year comes to you courtesy of CustomFit, which is now open to everyone. (Please, come! Set up an account and if you’re going to the festival, spend your time dreaming about the yarn you love instead of worrying about what pattern you’ll use to knit it.) So I wanted to  Continue Reading

Rhinebeck begins: Maple Cotton Candy

Written on October 15, 2013 at 5:11 pm, by

Rhinebeck. Is there a word more magical to a New England knitter? I don’t think so. The New York Sheep and Wool festival is a yearly pilgrimage for me and thousands of other fiber enthusiasts. Everywhere, knitters are showing off their stuff and catching up on all things fiber artsy. The setting couldn’t be more  Continue Reading

Fashion Friday: Coastal Maine

Written on October 4, 2013 at 6:34 pm, by

I’ve said, before, that I think fashion should serve us, rather than the other way around. I think style should be something that we define for ourselves personally, shaped by our own needs and lifestyle. If something doesn’t work for you, don’t do it! If you love something, do it! Whether or not it “follows  Continue Reading

FF: Dalriada

Happy Friday! This week, we’re tackling a couple of topics near and dear to many of the women in my classes, through the design I’ve just released: Dalriada. (If you want a copy of Dalriada of your very own, by the way, you can buy it here.) One of the major activities of my classes  Continue Reading
