Three yarns, three women, three sweaters.

Vogue Knitting Live was, of course, bundles of fun – even if I did spend every non-class moment curled up with some Sudafed. Teaching is one of my most favorite of things, and it’s always wonderful to see fellow teachers and exhibitors at these large events. I returned home to the kind of Halloween fervor  Continue Reading

Sweater Week: Stonington

Written on October 17, 2014 at 12:32 pm, by

For the last sweater release of Sweater Week, I wanted to share something that makes me think of New England fall. Meet Acorn Trail’s little sister, Stonington: Stonington started with a yarn, and a desire to create a sweater similar to Acorn Trail, but that was simpler to knit. The yarn is Harrisville WaterSHED. Watershed  Continue Reading

Sweater Week: Hakone and Bridgefield

Written on October 15, 2014 at 10:17 pm, by

Today in Sweater Week news, I get to share the results of a partnership with one of my favorite yarnies: Spirit Trail Fiberworks. I don’t remember exactly when I was introduced to Jennifer’s yarns (maybe a sock exchange in 2006?), but I’ve been an avid fan ever since. And above all other bases, I love  Continue Reading

It’s the week before Rhinebeck, and all through the house, lots of wool is a-stirring… …which is to say, we have a lot of very exciting things set to come your way these next 7 days! For those of us in the Northeast US (and many from further away, too), the New York Sheep and  Continue Reading

First things first: Thank you all so much for your suggestions regarding the blue SSKAL sweater! Here’s what it looks like now: Your comments really helped me decide what to do with the sweater.

Updates for all!

Written on August 25, 2014 at 8:50 pm, by

The last sun-splashed days of summer are slipping by here in New England, complete with leaves falling and chilly nights. I’m soaking up knitting on the patio as often as humanly possible, which makes for good knitting progress but pretty mediocre updates here. So I have a bunch of updates to share with you today!  Continue Reading

Cardipalooza pattern: Cushing Isle

Written on May 20, 2014 at 5:47 pm, by

After the madness of knitting all of the book sweaters, and the travel of this spring, I was looking forward to cardipalooza like nobody’s business. A sweater just for me? Sign me up! Of course, it didn’t hurt that I had a sweater’s worth of Clara Parkes’ new Cormo 1.0 colors waiting for my needles.  Continue Reading

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.

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
