Freelance deadlines were my priority well into December so I got quite a late start on my Christmas knitting. First to be finished will be Kabouter by Woolly Wormhead for Devan. I want him to  have a chance to wear

Shozo Socks

Devan has new socks in yellows and golds–his favourite colours. I test knit Shozo, a pattern written by Nigel, my step-father. It’s toe up with a great method for working the gusset, heel turn and even the heel “flap” looks

Sunday Find – Shelter

I don’t knit for myself very often any longer. In part it’s because designing and the business takes much of my time. When I do knit for myself, I like to learn or try something new. It could be a

Portable Project

I needed a portable project to take to Devan’s skating class yesterday … My sock yarn collection is growing (like you couldn’t have guessed that) and I’ve been wanting to try out Colinette’s Jitterbug. I keep hearing it mentioned and I feel

The fashion forecast is grey

I’ve been working on a nice, basic grey cardigan for the past while. I started it in the summer on one of our vacations and it’s a good mindless travel/t.v. knit. The exciting part is soon to come though. It
