    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 »

    Fall Sewing & Knitting Plans Posted on September 12, 2014

    It feels so wrong to be starting to think about fall sewing & knitting plans right now.  Chicago summer has been pretty chilly on the whole this year.  Don’t get me wrong – I’ve LOVED it. But I also feel like I haven’t quite spent my summer doing “summery” things.  As fall is approaching, I’m… Read More »

    My First Pair of Socks (and then some) Posted on August 21, 2014

    Tackling one of my (knitting) fears, socks, has been so easy!  After knitting my first sock up – and really, after casting on for the toe, I still don’t know what the big deal is. Sure, there is a new cast on technique I used, but it wasn’t hard.  And yeah, I had to work… Read More »

    Getting over Sewing/Knitting Fears Posted on June 26, 2014

    This idea for a blog post has been ruminating in my brain for quite some time – not to mention coming up as a frequent topic when chatting with other bloggers.  It’s time to peel back the layers and have an honest chat about what we’re so afraid of. Why are there certain things we’re… Read More »

  • Channel Cardigan
    The Channel Cardigan Posted on June 17, 2014

    I started the Channel Cardigan at the very tail end of Chicago Winter & beginning of our very chilly Spring.  It felt like Winter was never going to end – I was sick of being cold and this cardigan seemed like the perfect solution. I wasn’t going to knit this up since it’s not quite… Read More »

    The Bridge Jumper Posted on May 28, 2014

    The Bridge Jumper – or the ‘everything that could go wrong – went wrong’ jumper. That is a much more apt title for my jumper – although from these pics I (hopefully) doubt you’d even notice. Here’s the details before I get rolling with this post: Yarn Used: Red background: Reggia (red – sport weight), discontinued… Read More »

    Top 5 of 2013 Posted on January 13, 2014

    How good it feels to be sitting down at my computer, blogging again. I’ve had such a busy December and then I started the new year by being sick.  Ugh!  I posted my favorites from 2012 and I wanted to recap what I achieved last year and set some goals for the upcoming one. Looking… Read More »

    Completed: The Ingenue Sweater Posted on December 9, 2013

    I’ve been knitting up a storm this fall/winter and have completed a (very speedy sweater) called Ingenue. It’s a fairly basic raglan sleeved sweater, constructed top down & knit in the round. Generally, when I get bored or when I get to a hard part of a project – I loose patience and wander off… Read More »
