I've been knitting a blouse for my mom, based on a pattern in a Knitting Traditions issue - the Haubergeon Sweater. This sweater has a plain body, with a lovely crisscrossing cable pattern on the sleeves that caught my mom's eye. The color that my mom prefers was not available in the suggested yarn weight, … Continue reading The Forever Sleeve
Yes! I do love how this cardigan turned out. Black outfit, wavy eyelets and little buttons -- what's not to like? 😉 And I think it's awesome how the simple Old Shale pattern makes for this wavy, beautiful look.

I got the idea for the triangles when I saw a character in a TV series wearing a top that had a lot of triangles … Continue reading Triangles in the works
I'm done with the back of the lacy hearts cardigan, and just like I mentioned in my previous post of the series, I added a small lacy pattern detail at the top of the back. A wise creative decision 😉 since it makes the piece look not-so-plain. Check for yourself -- I'm going to sew … Continue reading Lacy Hearts cardigan — the back
