BeerSox Production News!

For those of you who have seen me anytime in the last 6 months, you have probably heard me talk about expanding production of BeerSox to Peru. It took a fair amount of networking and a fair amount of cold calling/emailing people who I have never met and have some amount of language barrier. You… Continue reading BeerSox Production News!

Babar

So my nephew turned 4 this past weekend & I spent the whole Easter weekend with my brothers, sisters and parents knitting this lovely pachyderm which I edited to fit fingering weight yarn and to be mostly knit in the round. The knitting pattern is from Woman’s Day and it’s free! The crown was a… Continue reading Babar

FO: An Aunt’s Shawl II

I had two of my aunts request shawls from me at my brother’s wedding in October. Shortly afterward, I took my trip to Peru where I bought some absolutely gorgeous yarn! I got started on the first of the two shawls, improvising a zig zag pattern and just loved the final result! It took me… Continue reading FO: An Aunt’s Shawl II

Finished object: Shifting Stripes Shawl

It has been a while since I had a good finished object post. After the ramp up to the holidays and lots of deadline client knitting, I decided to take a break and knit some things that were not BeerSox. I love knitting them and seeing them find their places in the world, but I… Continue reading Finished object: Shifting Stripes Shawl

An Aunts’ Shawl

So a couple months ago, I received requests from two of my aunts for shawls that were light turquoise/green. I told them that the shawls would probably end up being backburner projects and they’d take a long time to finish. But I’ve finished the first of two! I went on my trip to Peru just… Continue reading An Aunts’ Shawl

Weekend recap

This past weekend, I had the opportunity to have a booth at the Houston AIGA Ctrl+Art+Delete. It was a gorgeous day and I had a great assortment of shawls to sell. I’ll let the shots of my booth setup and transport to speak for themselves. And my neighbors mccheeks mayhem and orange is the sun

Peruvian Adventure! Dos

I had the opportunity to meet with a representative from Michell while in Peru. I walked in to the shop and was immediately in a land of a knitter’s dream. Walls of cones of Alpaca! Some of which I had to have because Alpaca in the states doesn’t come cheap. And when you’re in the… Continue reading Peruvian Adventure! Dos

Peruvian Adventure! Uno

Did you miss me? I totally missed writing posts. But I had zero free time while on my trip, and multi tasking time was low. But, I WENT TO PERU FOR A WEEK! From 6 am to 6 pm, Monday through Friday, I was in a project management course for my work. Yarn stores in… Continue reading Peruvian Adventure! Uno

Wedding sweater update!

Just thought I’d post an update on the wedding sweater. I hated how the as written border was turning out on the sweater. I tested a number of borders and decided on this simple leaf border. It undulates, it’s organic, and it’s the right thickness. I have to finish the border and the sleeves this… Continue reading Wedding sweater update!

Wedding Knitting

My brother is getting married to his wonderful fiancĂ©e in a scant few weeks. The wedding dress has arroved and I’ve started on a shrug for her to wear if there’s a nip in the air in Boulder at the beginning of October. Most people don’t have the opportunity to get to know a future… Continue reading Wedding Knitting
