What I’m working on this week: Light summer cardigan

You know those chilly summer mornings, when the sun is bright and filtering through the trees in dappled light and shadows, but some of the night's coolness is still hanging in the air? I love those mornings. And in a short while, I'll love them even more with the cardigan I'm working on: Okay, so… Continue reading What I’m working on this week: Light summer cardigan

What I’m working on: a pseudo-meditation pillow!

I call this a "pseudo" yoga pillow because a proper meditation pillow (also called a yoga pillow) should be filled with buckwheat, and (aside from not having several pounds of buckwheat just sitting around) the stitches are a fairly loose and made with a very chunky yarn (which I bought before I thought of this),… Continue reading What I’m working on: a pseudo-meditation pillow!

What I’m working on: water bottle holders for the whole family!

What I’m working on this week: slippers!

I'm on a footwear kick right now, because warm feet are the best, and these two-tone slippers will definitely make my feet nice and warm. I used a 3-weight yarn where the pattern called for a 4-weight yarn (because I had lots left over after my napa cardigan), but I think these will be nice… Continue reading What I’m working on this week: slippers!

What I’m working on this week: another bath mat!

This one is for my mother in law, and like the genius I'm sometimes really not, I completely underestimated how much yarn this would require (those bobble stitches really eat up the yarn!), so this week we're getting more to finish this beauty. I really love the effect of the variegated yarn and how the… Continue reading What I’m working on this week: another bath mat!
