Upcoming sock pattern

Just wanted to share a sneak peek of the new sock pattern that I’m working on. It’s in the final stages and I hope to publish within a month. Let me know what you think!

Egg cozy??

This is a project out of the old box. I knitted it for Christmas 2008. My knitting pal Louisa had moved back to Sydney Australia, where they don’t need jumpers around Christmas. In fact they usually celebrate it with a BBQ and/or on the beach (fancy that!). Anyway I decided to give her a jumper [...]

Bunny wabbit

I fell in love with the cute bunny I spotted in Debbie Bliss Knitting Magazine, Fall/Winter 2009 way back when it came out. By July 2010 my friend was expecting her second child and although she didn’t know if it would be a boy or a girl, I gambled on the first. The bunny would [...]

Koolhaas socks more sizes

The past weeks I’ve been working hard to create more sizes for the Rem Koolhaas socks. Back in December I published the pattern for size L: EURO 43/ US 9 / UK 9.5 (please see my original blog post for more info), with a promise for more sizes so without further ado here they are: [...]

Rem Koolhaas Socks

I’ve decided to publish the long awaited Koolhaas Socks in their current form (Size 43 euro only) and add the size alteration info later when I’ve had time to check the calculations. Knitting socks is a joy. No matter what the weather outside, it is always a good time to knit socks because you wear [...]

Cute baby booties

One of the first things I knitted for my baby where these sweet little baby booties. They are great for using up bits of leftover yarn. Because back in April we didn’t know if our child would be a boy or a girl, I didn’t add the buttons. Then yesterday I decided to walk to [...]

New pattern: Lilo slouchy beret!

Ever since I wrote a blog post about Lindsay Lohan’s slouchy beret back in September 2007 I’ve been getting a lot of hits on that article. Mainly from knitters trying to find a pattern to knit a hat like Lindsay was wearing. Lilo – as Lohan is also called- popped out for a stroll sporting [...]

Cat hoodies!

Baby Animals are the cutiest! And as a knitter a combo of kittens and knitwear is enough to make me go weak at the knees. It’s Christmas come early! To help that feeling along even more: it’s snowing in London (Yay!) and I received yarn that I ordered for a new Happy Living Pattern Design and a black [...]

Run on Knitwit for Christmas

Yesterday I received this dinky little gadget called a Knitwit. It’s a weird little object to make yarn flowers which you can use to make all sorts of crafty objects like dresses, pillow cases and brooches. Most of the items will remind anyone of the golden age of home crafting, the 70′s when macramé and [...]

Charleston wintery hat

Last winter I finally bought Boutique Knits, a knitting book that had long been on my Amazon wish list. Created by Laura Irwin for Interweave Knits and full of very posh and classy knits. I loved the cover project, the Side Slip Cloche, and actually found the yarn that was no longer in production on [...]
