Techniques for the Light Summer Tank

My new pattern The Light Summer Tank is a pretty straight forward knit. Never the less I thought it might be nice to have a collection of the techniques used in the pattern as a reference point if any kind of questions should arise during knitting time. Before I start a project I am usually very […]

Hello, Light Summer Tank

The Light Summer Tank has finally left the nest! Right in the onslaught of Fall patterns… Oh well, consider it a little gift to the Southern Hemisphere. Working on this pattern has been such a trip let me tell you. As a new designer (it still feels weird calling myself that) I probably did everything […]

A year of Simple House Slippers

I just realised that this month it has been a year since I published the Simple House Slippers pattern, and what a year! Writing the pattern was a pretty isolated experience of researching, test knitting and generally just being submerged in the thing. Which was then magnificently contrasted when I gave it over to this great community […]

Looking for Testers

THE TEST HAS BEEN FILLED! Like I’ve mentioned a few times I’ve been in the process of finalising a couple of patterns for a while and now it is time to send one into the world! First up is a test knit of my yet to be named Summer top. So if you need a holiday project or […]

Khaite and some thoughts on simplicity

The brand new ready to wear line Khaite has got me sighing so hard. More specifically that boiled Cashmere oversized cardigan in the above pic *insert moan*.  From what I can demise it is produced locally in the US, with at least some of the sweaters knit by hand (!) in New York City, which is a […]

Last year I wrote a bit about my infatuation with Summer knitwear and more generally Summer knitting. I still think it is the bees knees so I thought I’d revisit the theme and share some of my new infatuations. Up until that time I hadn’t really considered wearing knits as a viable option for warm weather, thinking it […]

All of a sudden it’s May next year

Oh has it been a while!

First I just gotta say that this is such a weird post to write. The whole quintessential “sorry for the quiet” post. It is the Mac and Cheese of blog posts. Classic but sooo basic.
I’ve definitely read many and most likely written a few myself and now it seems I can’t shape a sentence without it being the absolute biggest kliché. So I’ll keep it simple and let you know what’s been going on so we can get…

A Conversation with Jess Schreibstein

You’ve probably come across Jess Schreibstein many times. She’s written about natural dyeing in Oaxaca for Fringe Association and my fave Knit Wit magazine, she rocks both Instagram and Ravelry and also opened the very first Woolful podcast (..!). That’s already a pretty admirable rap sheet and there is a lot more.

Maybe you’ve connected the dots, maybe not. I have to admit that I didn’t realise that it was the same awesome chick doing all that, until one fatefull Instagram post(more on that later) when I started paying more attention. Yes, I am that bad with names (and sometimes with paying attention. Sorry, not sorry). I have since made up for my mistake and…
