Mosaic made by rchrispy.

Day in NYC

On Saturday, I spent a day in NYC with Ysolda and we did typically geeky things that knitters and in particular, knit designers, tend to do when we get together.
Our first stop was Kinokuniya because Ysolda wanted to check out some Japanese pattern books. We ran into a bit of a hiccup in our [...]

New summer/spring design

Previews for the spring/summer 09 Knit.1 issue are out and my tie back top appears on the Knit.1 website:

The yarn is Zitron Samoa, a DK/light worsted mercerized cotton in a yummy tangerine shade (and new to me yarn). The top is a dolman-type, cap sleeve shell in spider stitch (a nice, but easy combination [...]

Fun Knitting!

A couple of weeks ago, the Spiders made the trek out to Marie’s Bay Ridge apartment for an afternoon of eating, knitting, and hoola hooping (in Marie’s spacious craft/yarn room).

Spring Interweave – Soap Bubble Wrap

The Spring Interweave preview is up and I have two designs in it.
My Soap Bubble Wrap is currently
I kind of feel like I want to take up kung fu again when I wear this. Perhaps some day, I’ll reknit this in the sportweight gauge. I think it would make a really lightweight [...]
