It’s been a rainy gray winter and Buttercup needs something extra visible.
“Braces. What an evil word.” Those are the first words I jotted down when I wrote this beanie pattern ten years ago. I completely forgot about this hat. I don’t remember making it, wearing it, or getting rid of it, but I remember this orthodontic appointment. When I was sixteen, shortly after I got myContinue reading “Diamond Hat Redo”
I started this sweater in my parents’ living watching Home Alone 2 and realized a little late I was knitting practically the same sweater my sister was wearing. Despite the fact that we aren’t actually twins, my sister and I dress more and more alike with every passing year. I stand by this sweater anyway.Continue reading “Currant Sweater”
I don’t know if this counts as an abandoned knitting project seeing as I never actually started it, but I did sketch it sometime back in 2013 fresh from a rainy day trip to Savannah. I went as far as dropping some squares in MS Paint, and then immediately forgot about it. Probably because theContinue reading “Bicycle Sweater”
Buttercup is cold. This is one of those things that probably isn’t true – she’s made of fluff and lives in Georgia – but it feels true. Another thing that feels that true, is that if I love her I should knit her a sweater for Christmas.
This dress started with a question: what does one wear with thigh-high boots? I bought the aforementioned boots in a major sale when the Diane Von Furstenburg store near me was closing its doors. It was the early days of covid, back when I was asking optimistic questions like, what should I wear to allContinue reading “Little Black Dress”
This part 90’s bubble shirt, part sweater I bought at the Gap eight years ago, is Jigglypuff reaimagined as a sweater. Jigglypuff easily makes my top three favorite Pokemon, but pink isn’t a color that’s usually featured in my closet. I started with a giant cone of pink DK that’s made it’s way through threeContinue reading “Moss Crop Top”
This fair isle tank was the first tank top I’ve ever knit, and I clearly forgot a lot about what tank tops actually look like. Primarily, that the front and back are typically different. So I frogged the back. Here’s my re-do.
Now that I’ve binged Only Murders in the Building twice in a row, I’ve decided I need Selena Gomez’s wardrobe. I’m starting with this hat.
This might be my favorite stash yarn knit yet. It’s more relaxed than my usual raglan (or at least seamed) sweater and made entirely from scraps of worsted I bought from my yarn teacher’s store as a kid – back when I chose yarn for stitch visibility and nothing else. Not for the first time,Continue reading “Striped Sweater”
