hello and goodbye

Hello there,

I am writing to say goodbye to my blogger blog (you've been good to me, so thank you).

But, friends, please come visit my new blog and my new website (same address, different look).

Also, I have a new pattern called Uniform...you can read about it here and purchase the pdf here, if you want!



My family and I are in Brooklyn for a couple days, staying with good friends and celebrating the coming new year.
While I'm here, I thought I'd take advantage of their apartment and use it as a location for a photo shoot. A friend's daughter lives here and she is going to model the knits...she's coming later this morning--very exciting!
I've been working for the last several weeks on these new patterns, I'm so looking forward to sharing them with you.

Happy New Year, everyone! Cheers to 2014!



"I do it my own self," says Imogen (several times a day for the past 8 months or so).  I'm so proud of her independence!

Well, now I am doing it my own self, too.  I've been feeling quiet about the decision, but I'm ready to share that I have left my full-time position at Quince as Art Director to stay home and have more time with Imogen. Saying it was not an easy decision is an understatement. But I know that it was the right one. My little goose is only little once.

I'll still be working with Quince freelance; we remain best friends forever! But, I'll now have a little time (a little while Immie is at pre-school) to work on Madder and other various projects. So stay tuned!


Hoping this will be a sweater in less than two weeks. Hmm....

yarn: swans island, merino/alpaca



If anyone missed out on the sale the other day, you can check out A butterfly in my hair. Enter to win a free copy of the pdf by commenting on day 15's post! Plus you'll see lots of other goodies in the advent offering—a cashmere hat by Nicole being one of them. So pretty.
