I love having works in progress. I love the idea of new possibilities, new ideas, new projects & new designs. The whole essence of making just gets me all giddy. 

I realized I hadn't shown any pics of my recent wip's on the blog lately. So I've got a few lovelies to share above of what I've been working on. If you follow me on instagram you have seen the progression of some of these for sure. My fave new socks in progress using the amazing Caterpillar Green yarns! I die. This self striping yarn is so AWESOME. But more on them next month! Stay tuned to win some of your own..hehe.

I'm also using the most gorgeous skein of Malabrigo Rastita to finally make a Yarnster hat for me! I loved this hat when I designed it last year (it's FREE!) but it resides in a local yarn shop and not on my head so my lovely friend Arika so sweetly gifted me this skein to make my own since the pattern is named after her generous self. It's going to be so pretty and I cannot wait to wear it! Aren't those tones just so lovely together?

I also have projects coming up soon with the new Lotta Jansdotter line Sylvia! You guys know how obsessed I am with anything Lotta related. I even have Lotta washi tape thanks to my pal Holly! I am currently planning on covering my house in these prints to match my fave rug. I can't wait to show you them and when I do...you may get some too!!!!! I love being sneaky...hehe.

Then I have been drooling and I mean drooling over the gorgeous new line Sweet As Honey from the oh so insanely talented Bonnie Christine from Going Home to Roost for Art Gallery Fabrics! Seriously, even my package that came with my fabrics from her was drool worthy! I'll be showing you all what I will be making on the 25th as I'm lucky enough to be part of her Sweet As Honey Blog Tour! There have been some lovely projects made already! You can see them all here!

And those last 2 pics above...yep....that lovely stacked pile of goodies? I get so excited just looking at it! I loooove that everything in that pile is made by me (sans the wood buttons)! I hope to wear some of them this weekend! That's right! That is what I'm packing for our trip tomorrow!!!! YAY!!!! It's here! Jane and I leave tomorrow for the US! Don't forget we will be at Tolt Yarn and Wool on Thurs night from 6-8pm (come see us!!!) for a signing/trunk show and then you can find us at Vogue Knitting Live in Seattle all weekend! Our trunk show will be up at the Stash Local Booth #310 and we will be doing a book signing on Saturday from 12-2pm! You will be able to see pics from this weekend on my instagram! We can't wait to see all of you! And just in case you are nosy like me the items in the pile are as follows starting from the top of pile...Antrorse, Josephine, Tova, Sigma and Saiph! YAY!

So what have you been making? Any projects you're dreaming about? Grab a cuppa Tim Horton's and join me! Let's chat!!! See you all next week! Happy creating!

  1. Your projects look so beautiful! I've been lazy at my house. No projects except some cooking. We hosted a baby shower at my house to welcome a new great nephew into our family so I made some great food for that. I've been so lazy as winter hangs on here in Missouri. Looking at your pictures inspires me to get out my hook (I crochet and sew, but don't know how to knit). I love the knitting projects you are working on. I would love to learn such a beautiful skill. Thanks for sharing your projects!

  2. After following your blog for a few years I finally took the leap to knitting sweaters! I have one for me (kind of stalled) and a simple reglan baby cardi for my daughter... I'm kind of thrilled at how fast baby garmets come off the needles!!

  6. I just finished your lovely downton cowl using left over madelinetosh vintage wool in Glazed Pecan. I am also working my way slowing through my second Strathcona scarf and am making my first pair of Linden mitts for the #lindenkal!! First time using felici in a lovely green colourway. Perfect for spring & St. Patricks day. I love the colourway you are using for your yarnster hat.

  7. TimmyHo's is a must for WIPs! I've got a few wardrobe patterns cut out and waiting to be sewn up. Finished up a crocheted slouch hat a few weeks ago, but I'm thinking after seeing your lovelies, I need to try knitting again. I have every size of needle, every type of needle & gadget I could ever need, yarn sitting here; so really no excuse not to give it another attempt.
