It’s the most wonderful…gingerbread cookie recipe.

Every year this time of year, my husband requests that I make my gingerbread men cookies that I make throughout the Fall and Winter seasons. I have to say that there are no short of a thousand different recipes but when I found this one, I looked no further. I love this recipe called “The…

I Made An Adult Christmas Onesie….

And I love it! This is a pattern by Simplicity (#8520)and 95% of this, I sewed on my serger. The other 5% pertained to sewing the zipper which I used my regular machine for. I really love how this turned out. I found this fabric at my local Jo-Ann Fabrics in the Artsy Doodle section…

I made a Toaster…(sweater)

I finally made a version of the Toaster sweater by Sew House Seven.  This pattern is actually Simplicity pattern #8529 but it does have Sew House Seven written on the pattern, so I believe it was a collaboration.  After doing a little research, it seems that this Simplicity pattern is a version of the original…

FO Show: Deschain

Right before Fall officially started, I finished my Deschain pullover.  I knit it out of Juniper Moon Farms Neve in the Mulberry colorway.  Neve is a 100% cotton chainette-type yarn and provides great drape. What I like about this top is that it is very versatile.  It can be styled over top a maxi dress,…

FO Show: Turtle Dove

A few posts back I relayed how I was going to use my stash of Cascade Eco+ yarn to knit up the Turtle Dove which is the latest sweater pattern by Espace Tricot. As of Sunday, I can happily call it a finished object! I previously mentioned I would do the split hem, however, I…

Can I (finally) wear my hand-knit socks?

…Or will it continue to be 90+ degrees outside?? I’m not complaining, honestly, because I’ve enjoyed our hot, hot summer; but this weather is such a tease. Honestly, even with the air conditioning running inside on arctic blast intensity, I still prefer not to wear socks in my house. However, on Sunday, it was a…

Danforth Pullover

When I first saw the Danforth Pullover pattern, I instantly fell in love with it as I do with most all Quince & Co. patterns.  There’s just something about the simplicity of it that gets me…and the fact that it is very wearable.  And what’s even better- NO SLEEVES!!  For all my knitting friends currently…

A Good Use For Speckled Yarn

I had two skeins of Mad Tosh Home in the colorway Cosmic Wonder Dust and could not figure out what to make with it.  Over the past few years, I’ve really tried to build up my yarn stash and my wardrobe with more neutrals and solids instead of the variegated yarns that I used to…

So much knitting so little time

So much has happened (good stuff!) since the last time I put up a post.  Another year of successful Christmas crafting and a decision to start grad school took up most of my December. January and February led way to studying for my CAPM exam and the start of my grad studies.  Then came March…
