We Got Married!

October 15, 2016 – we missed Rhinebeck this year, but for good reason: we got married! And now we can always have a reason to go to Rhinebeck since it’ll be our anniversary!

Mostly photos from me, but Dale wrote a post about our wedding for work with a few more details.

On to the photos! Our photographer David Waldman did an amazing job. A few are by me and my sisters.

New Harrisville Patterns

Just popping by to say I have a couple of new patterns out with Harrisville Designs, as part of their Foliage Collection!

Bowline is a bottom-up seamless raglan with an interesting, slightly different cabled lattice pattern and braids along the raglan decrease lines. flyWHEEL is such a nice airy wool and I love the colour so much!

Bale Sling is a super quick bulky scarf worked in TURBINE, with interlocking cables for loads of texture.

Treading Water

Whew. Getting a job outside my house has been pretty exhausting! It’s been pretty good though, lots of nice people, and just a 10 minute walk commute. Finding knitting and crafting time has been hard though. My pile of WIPs (works in progress) has been staring at me from beside the computer for ages.

But it’s finally September, and although the weather hasn’t cooled down one bit, I’m ready for fall!

I want to finish up this squish black garter stitch cardigan, which is nearly done the body. I probably should have knit the sleeves first (before the body) so it wouldn’t be quite so difficult to wrangle, but it’s okay. I think I’ll go with elbow or three-quarter length sleeves on this one.

I finished up my Snooker Mitts in Mountain Colors’ Crazyfoot fingering weight and I love them! I’ll have to take some pretty photos and add the fingering weight instructions to the pattern.

Dug out some Koigu lace weight that I had basically completely forgotten about – I had picked up a few skeins from Shall We Knit at the Knitter’s Frolic in the spring. I started a scarf, then changed my mind and started a sweater. I might end up changing my mind again…

And I’ve been hand sewing a little bit! I finished an Alabama Chanin A-line tunic and have worn it a bunch of times. Now I’m working on a longer dress, with princess seams and pockets. I love hand sewing, I really do.

In pattern release news, I have a new pattern out with Woolfolk! The fall collection is just beautiful and I’m honoured to be included. You can find my new pattern SPOR on Ravelry or ask for it at your local Woolfolk stockist! The yarn is so so soft and amazing.
