Book Photo shoot

The weather in NYC the past few months has been a little erratic. During my time off, there were many days where a light jacket would do for neighborhood errands. It was bright and sunny for most of February, March, and April. The photo shoot for my book was scheduled for the middle of May, […]

It’s Finished! Well, almost.

This past Monday, I sent out the last batch of sweaters for my book. After working on it for a little over a year, it’s hard to believe that it is almost finished. There are still a few details to write and patterns to name, but for the most part I consider myself done! Up […]

Half Deadline Time!

Today was the official half deadline for the book. I can’t believe how fast time has gone. I think it has taken the same amount of time to realize that this is really happening! Today there was no questioning reality as I packed my seven babies up and sent them off to my editor at […]

Deadlines, Deadlines, and More Deadlines

Taking a break from my knitting chair to give the hands a little rest and to let my freshly steamed sweater dry a little bit before moving on to the final steps. My newest deadline project is a design for O-Wool in Balance, a 50/50 Organic Wool/Cotton blend. If you happen to have heard rumours […]

The Design Process – Sweater Finished!

Sorry to keep you guys waiting so long, but here is the long awaited picture of the design process sweater! It’s not the best picture in the world, but you get the idea. Here’s a details shot: And now we can compare the sketch to the final product. How did I do? I decided to […]

The Design Process – Finishing

I felt so bad about my design process project sadly sitting on the couch, all hidden away. So I did something about it. I got out the tapestry needle and started sewing! And now we enter into one of our last installments on the making of the garment. My next topics will briefly touch on […]

The Design Process: Buttonbands

Finally! I am nearing the end of my little series. Not that it’s a good thing, it’s just exciting to finally be able to show you the final project and compare the original idea to the final product. I have to say, I think it’s going to be pretty close to the original concept, which […]

The Design Process – Blocking

As promised, I finished up the left front this weekend and am finally able to proceed with the series. I know I had mentioned talking about picking up stitches, but how could I leave out the very important process of blocking! Shame on me! I know there are people of both the wet block camp […]

The Design Process – Finished, no – more math, yes!

Yay! The back is finished and I’m ready to move onto the front! If this was a pullover, I could just cast on the same amount of stitches and follow the back numbers until I got to the front neckline, but no such luck. I need to figure out how many stitches to cast on […]

The Design Process – Yet More Math

After working the bust increases, it’s now time to shape the underarm seam for the doleman-like sleeve. Instead of using a set formula for the increases, I drew out a chart to make sure the shape is what I wanted. I wanted the increases to be worked over 2″, which according to my row gauge […]
