On being on the wrong side of fashion..

Hi knitting friends! I’m going to do something I’ve been doing a lot lately, and talk more about life than about knitting, though at least there are some references to knitting (or at least knitwear) in this post. However, if you only come here for the knitting, this is probably another good one to skip. …

The best socks in the world.

Well, it’s over. I have officially knit the best socks ever. Objectively, they’re also representative of my best craftsmanship too. I started with a beautiful yarn in stunning colors, wonderful and smooshy and perfect, and I totally winged a pair of knee socks that fit me like a glove. I’m so happy I almost can’t …

How to Dress Like a Tokyo Girl

If you follow me on Instagram, you may know that I recently was lucky enough to take a trip to Tokyo. I had never been anywhere in Asia at all, so it was very exciting! I’ll eventually write a post with lots of pictures about my time there (and it was awesome) but as a …

Off Topic.

Hi everyone, This post is going to have little or nothing to do with crafting of any kind, but I need to spill about how I’ve been feeling for the last few days. The world is a mess, and I am sad, but that’s only the start of my feelings. There’s been a lot of …

Well, I’ve been plugging away at them and I actually have finished a pair! (I haven’t had a chance to properly photograph them though, so you’ll have to wait …

Ending the Radio Silence..

Hi friends! I know it’s been a long time since I’ve written a blog post. I’ve even hardly been keeping up with my Instagram, which is waaaay less time consuming! This summer really got away from me. Summers are always super busy, even though we think they are going to be relaxing. Here in Boston, …

Happy Socks. 

It all started because my boyfriend and I both have a thing for watermelons. Almost two years ago, I bought some superwash fiber in a very clever configuration, where you could split it down the middle and have two identical pieces of roving.. Yes, you read that right, this is a post that was years …

Adventures in Dyeing! 

Friends, all has been rather quiet on the blog front lately, but that’s mostly because I’ve been knitting only at a medicinal level. (That means enough to take the edge off of some stress, but not enough to have much to talk about.) However, I’m still working on my crazy sock plan, and I finally …

I actually did some spinning.

Are you shocked? I’ve been working on the same thing for a WHILE. I had reached the point of acceptance. Without a word of a lie, I thought I was going to be spinning this for the rest of my life. There was a small logical part of my brain that knew that wasn’t the …
