Drive By Posting (re: TNNA)

I’ll do a proper post about the weekend soon, but for now, I wanted to share a sneak peek of a new design I have coming out in Classic Elite’s upcoming Fall pattern booklets.  I caught a glimpse of this on Saturday at Classic Elite’s TNNA booth.
It’s a bulky weight hoodie coat (with knitted in toggles) [...]


Off to Columbus and TNNA tomorrow. I’ll be hanging around Ysolda’s booth and otherwise just walking around. Hope to see some of you there!

Hand Knit Design as Art

A couple of months ago, Jared Flood brought together several hand knit designers for a very unique designing project for ESOPUS magazine, a journal put out by a local, non-profit organization featuring art that spans a variety of fields and mediums.

Playing Photographer for a Day

This post is long overdue, but I’m finally getting around to writing about this gorgeous cardigan Melissa Wehrle released several months ago. Melissa’s husband and photographer was unavailable for several weeks so she asked me to photograph her modeling her Cohansie Cardigan (available on its own and as part of her first collection).

Because it [...]

Sanguine Gryphon’s Dye Camp 2010

This past weekend, I was a participant and teacher at Gryphon’s second annual SG Dye Camp Retreat in Easton, MD.  I was so honored that Gryphon asked me to teach at her retreat, especially given how popular it is.  She limits the participant list to 30 and holds a lottery to determine who gets to [...]

Knitting on the Brain

One of the things I find myself invariably doing these days is visiting malls.  The town where I work has two huge ones and after I leave the office, it seems a bit depressing to go back to an empty hotel room, so I spend a few minutes each day windowshopping.
Yesterday, I passed by J [...]

Angela and NYC

On Friday, my friend Angela and her husband were in town and they very kindly let Maurizio and me crash their group outing – a boat trip around the harbor in Manhattan. Although we’ve lived in this area for the past 3 years, it’s still quite stunning to see Manhattan from the vantage point of [...]

Bay Ridge Trek, Spider Mitt Swap

For the first time since I joined the Spiders, I had to miss out on the annual Bay Ridge trek to Marie’s. But I had already signed up for the mitts swap, the sequel to our cowl swap from the year before. Fortunately, my swapmate, Colleen, was very gracious; and although I hated to disappoint [...]

Spring in DC

Sorry for the drive by posting, but I wanted to mention that Maurizio joined me in Virginia this weekend (rather than me returning home to him) and we went to the Cherry Blossom Festival in DC. As warned, it was super crowded (even the lines to buy metrocards were long!); but totally worth it. The [...]
