A Very Dapper Gent.

Look at this incredibly handsome young man! This southern gentleman is my little brother Kyle, and he is the lucky recipient of my first knitted bowtie. It was a birthday present for him, as he is very fratty, which means that he wears a lot of bowties. And apparently white dinner jackets. I was able …

Shame, shame.

So over the holidays I was a TERRIBLE blogger. I did, however, have good reason! I took my old, beat up white macbook, and replaced it with a shiny new macbook pro! It was beyond time to replace the previous laptop. It was making burning smells when I turned it on, and if I wanted …

heading home soon..

Dear blog, I am excited and delighted to announce that after work today, I am going straight to the airport to go home for thanksgiving! I have brought three projects for the plane. (I know you’re curious!) 1. a solk/mohair cowl for a friend, so I can work on stuff around my family. 2. Mom’s …

Double Knitting (and a mitten update)

So I’m trying to finish my brother’s bowtie before thanksgiving. (I’m using this pattern) Well, really before the tuesday before thanksgiving, because that’s when I get home.

So I started these truly lovely mittens for my mom, in a very classy black and cream fair isle pattern. I was in love, we were happy together, everything was perfect.

Help for Hurricane Sandy:

Dear Friends, I’m writing this post because the east coast was recently the victim of a hurricane. I was fine, as were all the people I know, but parts of the coast will need a lot of time and help to get back to normal. I am going to post here in order to let …

Lolly and the socks take a trip to the park.

Today was a pretty nice day. It was a bit nippy, but the sun was shining, the birds were singing, and the squirrels were frolicking in the park. The socks were tired (they said) of being indoors due to the bad weather, so the three of us went on an outing, where I attempted to …

Yarn Bomb!

A couple of days ago, I was at the subway stop near where I work, and I spotted a yarn bomb! (aka knitted graffiti) I was really impressed, because it was at the top of a light pole, about 15 feet up. It must’ve taken some doing to get it there. Check it out!   …
