Wool People 8: Eaves

Wool people is a semi-annual collection of knitwear designs by guest designers curated by Brooklyn Tweed. I could probably wax poetic about BT for days, but I’m sure you already understand what I mean. The photographs! The styling! The designs! Not to mention the yarns.

Knitscene Accessories 2014: Pellissier Cowl

While I hope you’ve found all of my sewing projects interesting these last few months, I finally have some knitting to share! I’d like to introduce the Pellissier Cowl, which is a double-knit cowl inspired by the Art Deco building where I work. The first time I stepped into my building a little over two […]

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 […]

Neoknits patterns, now available in JKnit format

When Julia from JKnit contacted me about selling my patterns within their company’s new iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad app, I was intrigued. I had checked out other knitting apps for the iPhone before, but they really fell short of my expectations. Julia sent me a copy of the app, I immersed myself in a […]
