365 Days of Sweaters

365 Days of Sweaters People typically associate sweaters with snow or falling digits.  But in reality a sweater is just a knit item, cardigan, pullover, that can be made in any weight or any fiber content. I love three or four season sweaters.  My closet is full of Andrea Mowry’s So Faded.  I have made it in fingering weight wool and fingering weight cotton. 

First Mittens

First Mittens Until recently I never made a pair of mittens.  What changed?  The coalescence of two events.  We are launching a new charity crafting initiative and mittens are on the list of donations for one charity.  Seemed simple enough.  But what really jumpstarted my knitting (I can make a pretty quick hat after all), was the snow event.  Trying to clear off your car with fingerless mitts just isn’t fun. 

Spring Forward

Spring Forward Spring is a mindset more than a season.  The real spring can be rainy, cold, windy and damp.  The spring of my imagination is full of bright colors and flowering trees.  In honor of that vision, I have decided to rework the fabulous Nightshift Shawl by Andrea Mowry.
