trend alert: pastel knits

  Pastel knits are having a moment, and as someone who wears 95% black (and has for my entire life), I’m surprisingly excited for this one. Maybe it’s because after a year of staying inside it’s time we have something fun and festive and spring like. As shown here in my new favorite style newsletter, The Reflective, these colors work… View Post

5 podcasts for creative people

  Podcasts for Creative People When I have a long stretch of free time where I can knit, there’s nothing I love more than putting on Netflix and bingewatching a series.  If it weren’t for Breaking Bad and the Great British Baking Show, I would have fewer FO’s, that’s for sure.  However, when I only have an hour or so,… View Post

The 14 day edit: TV shows to binge watch while knitting

I’ll admit it- I LOVE tv. Before streaming services were the big thing, we did not add HBO or Showtime to our cable package because OMG so expensive! So we’d binge on shows like The Sopranos when we’d visit our parents for the weekend after everyone else had gone to bed, staying up till all hours fitting in as many… View Post

To-do list: Pick a new project

So if you follow me on IG, you’ve seen me post a couple shots of new knitting projects in progress… but they’re not going to happen right now. I’ve come… I’ve come to the realization that I don’t have the attention span to follow a stitch pattern more involved than ribbed, so it’s time to pick something new. It’s down… View Post

My knitter’s origin story – how did you become a knitter?

When I was in elementary school, I remember my Nan[a] teaching me how to knit.  I have no idea why we even began, since I have no memory of ever seeing her knit on her own.  I’m going to assume I came across her knitting stuff in an upstairs closet and then asked her about it, but I have no… View Post

*NEW* mugs and project bags have arrived in the shop!

Here’s a mug for those who love all modes of coziness:   And something Bruce Springsteen inspired…   Our first project bag is nice and roomy for a bunch of skeins:   What do you think of the new line? Don’t forget… View Post

Twin Peaks inspired knitting patterns & every sweater from the show ranked!

When I was in middle school, my friends and I were obsessed with Twin Peaks.  We’d get together to watch the show and make little cherry pies using those little sponge cake cups you find at the grocery store and pie filling (they weren’t very good), buy any merch that came out (the Cooper tapes, Laura Palmer’s diary), and I’m… View Post
