  • patterns in progress

    I’ve been working on a new pattern line called Kiddie Cocktail.  It is patterns for ages 6 months and up.  The line will focus on function and fashion for hip kids.  Sorry, no pumpkin hat patterns.  I’m going to try  to make every pattern under one skein per color using Blue Sky Alpacas and have options to make accompanying […]

  • hats, hats & more hats

      I hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving and you enjoyed your time with family and friends! I spent the first half of the holiday weekend with friends and playing with my little cousins at the Children’s Museum but come Sunday, I created my knitting nest and didn’t move till Monday afternoon. I’m knitting up […]

  • baby hipster

    I spent all last week hanging out with my 6 month old niece and was super inspired to make a younger version of the slouchy hats I’ve been designing lately. At first I thought that the hat may not last that long on my niece’s head before she tried to pull it off, but because […]

  • mocs & hat

    This past weekend I attended a baby shower for my a friend who is expecting a boy this Fall and knit a pair of moccasin booties and hat for the little one to sport this Winter. I’ve posted and thought about knitting the baby mocs pattern from Purl Bee for the last year and finally decided […]

  • babypalooza

    This past summer I started the log cabin baby blanket and then when I was about 50% finished, I noticed it wasn’t looking like the pattern… at all.  I discovered I was not picking up the right amount of stitches and not knitting enough rows.  So when my new little cousin was born, her blanket was […]

  • head to toe

    I finished my brother’s birthday gift, finally, and I sent it off to MN.  Everything about knitting this hat was easy, except for using kitchener stitch to finish it off.  Luckly PurlBee had a great tutorial but if you’re anything like me and knit in front of the tv then you will want to turn […]

  • happy heel stitch

    My goal for this past weekend was to finish my brother’s birthday present, the heel stitch hat pattern, but only made it about 2 inches in before I decided to take it out because I was not slipping the “slip stitch” properly. I frogged the project on Friday night and started again on Saturday and […]
