Finally tackling the popular So Faded sweater. I’m using a faded pack put together by Tanis Fibre Arts.
At the end of January I posted that I was finally going to finish my Lady Sunnyside sweater by Tanis Fibre Arts. (See that post here.) It’s a lovely top-down cardi. It’s a simple stockinette stitch but with a fancy boarder option. I chose the lace but there is also a simple cable twist version […]
If you knit a lot you probably have a basket or 2 (or 2 extra large, could fit a body in them, tubs) with projects that are waiting to be finished. I used to be A LOT better at starting a project and finishing it in a timely fashion. Unfortunately, the more I have knit […]
I had to create a whole new shelf in the closet just for winter hats. They really are a quick and satisfying project. Recently I’ve completed 2 cuties. Both with the on-trend fur pom-pom addition (see The Needle Emporium to order). First up is a free pattern from Ravelry called Pennyroyal (see pattern here) done in a worsted […]
Illusion cowl knit, ends in and wet blocked to make it longer done! It’s chilly out today so whip out those lovely cowls. I did… I’m in love with this cowl. Rowan Aran Tweed is a bit scratchy so that’s another good reason to wet block with some soak. It’perfect now! Ready […]

I know this is a bit late but I wanted to share a few moments from the Woodstock Fleece and Fibre festival a few weekends ago. It’s a large show at the fair grounds with a ton of exhibits and animal demonstrations. I was able to finish “Gale”. I think it turned out really well, […]
See the new garment I’m knitting. The is to have it done by Oct. 17 for the Woodstock Fleece and Fibre Festival.
Well…I didn’t lie about being inspired to knit after the KW Knitter’s Fair. On the Sunday after, I searched through one of my many baskets of projects and decided to whip out the Bayside Pullover from the first Coastal Knits book. The Ravelry page for this project is here. I started this project when we […]
Well the KW Knitter’s Fair was on Saturday and it always makes me actually believe that autumn is a reality. I have a love hate relationship with fall because I think it’s one of the most beautiful seasons we have in Canada but it also signifies that winter is coming. Some people try to tell […]
