Two baby sweaters are in the works...one Annabel Cardigan in chickadee and a little hoodie (based on an upcoming Quince design) in lark. I really hope I can finish them before she arrives! I also want to knit her some mittens, a bonnet, a dress, an ascot....the list goes on.


This is a lovely card I received from Kristen (thank you!).

Best wishes to everyone!!


Quince & Co. released my Serafina Cowl pattern this week. I'm so in love with this piece, I have to say. And, I rarely say that about anything I make! The garter stitch cables create a sculptural, squishy fabric which molds around your neck comfortably.
The cowl is shown here with a cardigan version of Annabel. This pattern will be coming out soon—we are just waiting for more Osprey Chanterelle to arrive. (Inventory is low after Cecily's gorgeous Solstice was released!).


I bought these 2 gifts for my babe...some lion linen pants and a little summer dress. OH, the cuteness!


wearing my Bergen.
(thanks for taking these photos, Cecily!)


Here's a new pattern I have been working on: Bergen Cowl. Triangles...triangles...triangles! I love the repetition of triangles. And, of course, I couldn't resist working them up in this modern color combo of white & yellow. I even like the way this cowl looks inside-out.

Yarn: Lark by Quince & Co.
Colors: Egret, Carrie's Yellow

I'll be getting some work done in the studio today (I hope). The wood stove is blazing in there now, thanks to my Toddie. I have a lot I want to accomplish before the baby comes!
ps: Oliver says hello from our loft.


All you knitters have seen the lovely Coveside by Cecily MacDonald long ago. But I found these photos, taken on Mackworth Island, and couldn't resist a post.


Gudrun Johnston just released a book of knit patterns called The Shetland Trader, Book one. She'll be at Purl Diva today doing a book signing. If you're in the Brunswick area come on over—Cecily and I are going!
I had the pleasure of working as the graphic designer for this book. It was a wonderful project to be apart of, even in a small way. I hope to knit Shalder (it's designed using the oh-so-lovable-Lark).
