Off the Needles...


Knit Picks was blowing all of their sport weight self striping sock yarns out the door so I added two balls of Kingpin to my last order. I had never used the sport weight before so I began by swatching in the round, which resulted in a tiny little cuff. I put it on my wrist to see what it would look like around my leg and knew instantly that I needed to make mittens instead of socks! I love this colourway, it's so me, and I know these mittens will go with everything I own!

What are you working on?

...oh and p.s. ignore the bottom half of my Classic Raglan Pullover, that's a story for another day :)

  3. The mitts are fantastic. I love the colors too. Also, I didn't notice the sweater until you pointed it out, because I was too busy admiring the polka dots on your pants. :-D

  5. Cute mittens! I'm working on the Triad shawl by Jill Draper and using her awesome Mohonk yarn. Also trying to finish my Churchmouse Poncho. Are you still planning on going to Vogue Live here in Seattle? I will bring my Island book for you to sign!

  8. Love the mittens!

    My sweater did the same thing. I found it short the first go around so I ripped it back and made it longer, three times because I was getting that exact same line. What's up with that? It blocked out, thank goodness!

  9. currently working on some socks with knit picks fingering kettle dyed in this gorgeous purple for my mom's birthday. i was wondering what was up with the sweater but i wasn't going to ask. i was going to pretend it was a glitch in the photo.

    1. I wrote my own pattern for them, I'm debating whether I should add a fingering version to the pattern before releasing it...
