New Pattern: Adina

Introducing Adina: Light and drapey with an interesting construction, Adina is the perfect autumnal cardigan. This clean and modern cardigan is well suited for weekend getaways or early autumn evenings. Worked on larger needles in fingering weight yarn, the fabric is open without being sheer. Neat rolled edges are kept in place with spots of […]

Sportster

It’s been a little while since the Twist Collective Fall issue came out, but I’ve been so busy I never got a chance to do a proper post about Sportster. Sportster is an asymmetric jacket knit up in a heavy worsted wool (think quick knit!). I think my biggest challenge for this sweater design was […]

Knitscene Fall 2011

Summer has officially begun only a few short weeks ago. Over here in the US, we have just celebrated Independence Day complete with BBQ and fireworks. And I know that it’s only July, but it’s already time to start thinking about your Fall knitting! One source that you should definitely check out is the new […]

New Pattern: Voussoir

Last week, a new pattern of mine went live for the Tunney Wool Company, the distributors of O-Wool. I was asked to design something in Legacy DK that involved color work and wanted to challenge myself a little bit on the design end. The final result? Voussoir [ravelry link], a Fair Isle cardigan knit totally […]

I’ve Been Keeping a Secret

If you have been following my tweets over the last month and a half or so, you’ve probably seen that secret projects have been flying off of my needles left and right lately.  Hence the very long absence from the blog. For most of January, February, March and April, I’ve been working on finishing up […]

Knitscene Summer 2011

The preview for the first ever Knitscene Summer issue is up! I’m happy to say that I also have a design in the issue, the Sigma Tee [ravelry link]. The Sigma Tee is only my second ever top down raglan design. Working from the top down isn’t one of my favorite construction methods, but when […]

A Visit with Kate Oates and a New Design

Long time, no write! Hope all of you had a good St. Patrick’s Day and are feeling well today. Despite the 2 million visitors to NYC taking part in the festivities yesterday, I decided to keep it simple (ie: I tried my best to avoid them all). Instead, I headed up to Knitty City to […]

Knitscene Winter/Spring 2011

The newest issue of Knitscene will be hitting the stands soon (January 25th), and in my opinion, it is a fabulous issue that you have to check out. I will admit that I am slightly biased however because not only do I have a design in the issue……..I made the cover!! This is my first […]

Vintage Knits, Modern Style

I’m finally getting some breathing room as my last deadline project (for the time being!) went out today. It always feels good to clear my plate and start planning what I get to work on next. And now that I’m caught up with my projects, I also can catch up on my blogging! This is […]

Ohio Knitting Mills

I had first learned about the Ohio Knitting Mills several years ago when I was perusing our internet trend site, WGSN. There was an article about a new boutique opening up in Brooklyn that would be selling duplicate styles from a massive mill collection ranging from the 30s to the 70s. Needless to say, my […]
