  • A Phryne Beret Posted on October 28, 2016

    Hello again!  While it’s been far too long since my last post – all sorts of things have been happening and I’ve remained quite busy.  New computer, a quick trip to DC, a trip to Rhinebeck Sheep & Wool Festival, and all sorts of sewing & knitting projects have happened. I think this summer/fall has… Read More »

  • Three Socks and No Pairs Posted on August 29, 2016

    I’ve been a very busy knitter since I’ve gotten home from France.  While I love sharing all of my travel photos, it felt like time to take an intermission. You may have heard me mention on the blog, but I’m going to the Rhinebeck Sheep & Wool Festival this year, for the first time.  So… Read More »

  • Knitting for Babies Posted on July 26, 2016

    I actually really like knitting for babies; you can make a garment in a fraction of the time and you can use smaller bits of yarn to do so – hello stash busting!  So when I found out my coworker was having a little girl, I couldn’t help but knit something up for her. I… Read More »

  • Warm, Winter Whites Posted on March 15, 2016

    It feels totally silly to post up my winter knits now that the weather is turning to spring here in Chicago.  But here we are, as I try to squeeze in as many of my winter garments from 2015/2016 onto the blog before it’s officially Spring. Luckily the weather was still a bit chilly when… Read More »

  • The Ultra Cozy Sweater Posted on February 19, 2016

    When I saw the Riptide sweater pop up on Ravelry, I just knew I had to make it! After blogging about my 1940’s suit, I bet Riptide is not exactly the sweater you all think I would knit – and I admit, I’m right there with you.  I tend to fall on the side of ‘vintage modern’ and… Read More »

  • My Nancy Jumper Posted on February 10, 2016

    Nancy, a stand-alone pattern from Susan Crawford has long been in my queue to knit up.  It is such a charming jumper, perfect for a chilly spring or fall. I had all sorts of bits of extra Excelana yarn after making Tasha’s Victory Beret (yet to be blogged), that I knew I wanted to try to… Read More »

  • Lumberjack Man Sweater Posted on January 7, 2016

    Happy 2016! While I’ve been busy sewing for myself and doing all sorts of house work, here I am leading off the year with my very first project for Felix which I’ve been calling Man Sweater. Left to Right: Meg’s Josh, my Felix, and Michelle’s Mike Update: My Ravelry Project Page with Detail Notes on… Read More »

  • A Mill-End Sale Posted on December 1, 2015

    A couple weeks ago I had the pleasure of stopping in at Lorna’s Laces Mill-End Yarn Sale. My friend/coworker/knitting buddy Maria is apart of Chicago Knitters Group.  She invited me to come along to the sale but I already had a hair appointment scheduled for the same time and sadly declined the invite.  It was… Read More »

  • I’m Baaaaack Posted on March 25, 2015

    I’ve been meaning to come back to blogging for quite some time now.  In all honesty, I never meant to take a blogging break.  Life just got in the way and I got out of the rhythm of posting – the longer I was away the harder it has been to come back and resume… Read More »

  • Cambies & Cardi’s Posted on October 1, 2014

    It’s no secret that Meg, Michelle, and I have been hanging out and knitting.  As we do, we get time to chat about a lot of things – most popular topics of course is sewing and knitting.  As a result, we often find projects that we all want to make but just haven’t.  Enter the… Read More »
