FOs (Finished Objects)


  • Somber by Sylvia McFadden. Knit in Katia Linen in Maroon and Greige using a 5mm needle. This is a thicker yarn than called for, but knit with a smaller needle. It’s a big shawl

Kelsey: Wearing Imogen Tee by Carrie Bostick Hoge in Holst Garn Samarkand in Aubergine

WIPS (Works in Progress)


  • Socks for Paul - Cuff down socks knit in Regia Design Line Jazz Color by Erika Knight in Mint Julep.

  • Blanket based on the Grapevine Lace pattern from A Treasury of Knitting Patterns by Barbara Walker, knit in Indigo Moon The Ultimate Sock in Gabriola Green

  • Fox Sweater (not shown) - Design-a-long sweater. I have worked out my gauge to be 25 stitches/4”, meaning that I will need to cast on 222 stitches. I will cast on this number and work my bottom ribbing flat, then I will join in the round and add 7 stitches for a steeking panel. Then I need to knit about 12-14” for the body. While doing this, I will work out numbers for my sleeves.

  • Telemark Pullover by Erika Flory, knit in Onion Knit Nettle Sock in Lime Green (v1014).

Onion Knit Nettle Sock and Onion Knit No. 4 Organic Wool + Nettles are new arrivals to the store. The boxes took the scenic route from Denmark, and 2 are still on their way. Our available colours are online now; stay tuned for the rest!


  • Magpie Tendency round 2! Knit with K-Zip Knits Fingering in Grimace and some “oops” coloured yarn from my stash and earlier days of dyeing.

  • Iggy by Sandrine C. in West Coast Colour Home Grown - a CVM, Merino and Romney Blend. I am sizing this one up because it didn’t come in my bust size but I was a sucker for the texture with the ribbed back. This is my Knit City KAL sweater at the moment - there might have to be a second with how quickly this one is working up.

  • Zaftig by Joan McGowan-Michael - this a bachelorette gift/joke for my friend who is getting married in early August. Knit with Classic Elite Fortuna which is a 58% linen, 26% viscose, 16% cotton blend that has been discontinued.
