Sneak peek of new design

I just got the photos back for my newest independent design from my lovely model, Jess, and her photographer and husband, Vitaly Fomin. More details to follow, but for now, here’s a sneak peek.

To celebrate my newest design, I’m going to hold a contest. Comment and I’ll draw a name out of a [...]

Twist Collective – Anniversary Issue

The new Twist Collective went up last night and I have a little cardigan in it – Peyton.
It uses Kollage Creamy yarn which, when I opened up the box last spring, I looked at with a healthy dose of skepticism — yarn made out of milk protein? But I’m officially converted. Creamy has [...]

Uhura

I’m super behind posting about my Summer Twist project, Uhura.
For this camisole, I got to use SWTC’s Terra yarn. I had used it for Broderie and I loved it. I find Bamboo too drapey and heavy to use on its own, but paired with cotton (and at a finer gauge), it makes a [...]

Breaking out a new Bag

I just picked up this adorable Namaste Zuma bag on Friday from Marie and I’ve already busted it out on Sunday. Usually it takes me a long time between when I purchase something and when I actually use it. Don’t ask me why; it’s a really strange quirk of mine. But my [...]

Stepping it up a notch

I’m really lucky to have some great friends. I started getting to know one of them, Melissa of Neoknits, as many people are introduced to her, through one of her great patterns. In my case, it was the Grannie Smith Cardigan, a delicate, fine gauge cardigan in Kidsilk Haze. That first purchase [...]
