KNIT : Wool and the Gang Throw
IMG_2378.JPG

Back in summer of 2017, I got my hands on a 50% off coupon for Wool and the Gang's website so I decided to try out their Crazy Sexy Wool. I bought a Koselig blanket kit but the herringbone stitch was frustrating so I opted for a simple garter stitch blanket instead. I chat more about the throw in the video below.

KNIT : Hannigan Release
2017-11-08 13.10.51.jpg

I'm very happy to announce the release of my very first sock pattern! When I opened my August Sock Crate from Knit Crate and saw this Ewetopia Kickapoo Sock yarn in the "Swallowtail" colorway, I knew almost immediately what it would be. The colors reminded me of the Irish coast---sea blues, sandy beiges, seaweed greens, stony grays. The Chain Cable down the front reminded me a line of sea glass or pebbles.
