2016 – To Plan or Not to Plan

Happy New Year! Although I guess it feels a little strange saying that since we are already half way through January! Usually at the beginning of a new year, I take stock and see how well I did with my goals. However I feel a little let down last year, which is totally silly. I only […]

Speckle and Stone: 5 inspired designs by Alexis Winslow

Alexis Winslow is a woman of many talents. Not only is she a fantastic knitter and designer, but she is an amazing artist and potter as well. For her newest collection Speckle and Stone, Alexis was inspired by her recent time spent in her pottery studio. Clay and yarn, what is the connection you ask? […]

Slow Fashion October: Living With Less

Honestly, I’ve never been much of a clothes horse. Spending lots of money on clothes (cheap, well made, or expensive) wasn’t something that I ever did. When I took my no buying new clothes challenge in 2014, I would be lying if I said I wasn’t a little panicked. When you take something away, no […]

Slow Fashion October

A little late with this post (how is October already half way over?) and I was almost about to skip it all together. After all, Slow Fashion October is all in what you want to make of it. No pressure! No daily wardrobe selfies if that isn’t you thing. There isn’t even a pledge to […]

Thoughts on Me Made May 2015

This year is the second time I’ve participated in Me Made May, a month long celebration of handmade garments. This year, I made my challenge a little more difficult. I pledged to wear at least three complete me made outfits each week. I’ve included a just a handful of the photos from the month for this post. […]

Knitting in Progress, the Great Gauge Debacle 2015

The temperature is slowly starting to rise in NYC signaling that maybe this long, long, long terrible winter is finally at its end. The greatest thing about Spring weather in the city is I can still wear a sweater as a layering piece. It’s still a little chilly in the morning and most of the […]

First Sweater of 2015 and I Love It!

Hello, my lovelies! If you’re in the Northeast, I hope you’re surviving the frigid weather we’re having by knitting tons of warm woolens. I have to say, there is nothing like bitter cold to charge up the knitting mojo. I’ve been on a bit of a roll since January and between trying to knit like […]

Snow Day!

New York City doesn’t slow down very often, or for that matter, come to a complete standstill. A travel ban has been imposed and subway service has been suspended due to winter storm Juno, although as I write, things are slowly coming back to a slow trickle. As a crafter, I’ll take it! Being stuck […]
