My fade sweater has reached the too-ugly-and-huge to photograph stage as I'm working on the sleeves together now... so let's just focus on the fade and what colors I've used so far. Top to bottom: Madeline Tosh the radness, cosmic wonder dust, unidentified mislabeled skein, optic, then @primroseyarnco 's gothic grunge, followed by more @madelinetosh hi/lo. So utterly fun to knit!
☀️Sick with a cold means sitting inside knitting all day. Made progress on my fade. Wrinkles, visible ends, and yellow tape obviously because it's too hot over here. ☀️
She finally moved 🐈 just now
Doesn't look like much now, but I'm super excited about the beginning of my fade sweater. I'll be winging it, as usual. 👼🏼
I have a really hard time getting dressed for summer weddings. I have a horrible sweating problem (especially when I drink!), yet I hate showing my arms. I also might be allergic to heels. So you see how getting dressed and feeling confident can be an issue, and if I'm feeling bad about how I look I'm guaranteed to have a bad time. Well, I've managed to wear this dress (by me) to three weddings. They were all on different continents so I don't think I broke any rules. Who knew a turquoise floral dress could be so versatile? I just mix up the accessories and it feels like a new outfit! The drapey silk doesn't feel hot, short sleeves cover my arms, elastic in the waistband means it always fits, yay, dancing time!! 💃🏻💃💃🏼💃🏽💃🏾💃🏿Does anyone else have summer dressing challenges? It feels so good to find a solution! 📸: @a__lake who wore a kurta to the wedding and it's all your fault @nehakhannastudio
On the up and up! It seems like this quilt makes more sense the further I get on it.
🌞first day of summer! Flash back to weaving in all the ends at my mom's house before our Fall 2017 shoot in January
Finishing a wool cardigan in high summer feels like sick torture. My perfectionist voice escalates the torture, like "go on girl, rip it all out and make it longer. You know it's too hot to wear anyway! Literally what other thing do you have to do?" Cause it's a little on the short side in the body and I know it 😬 did I mention I have to force myself to weave in ends? Most dreaded part of knitting!!
Feliz dia de papá to the flyest, most world traveling dad who can out cook and out dress anyone, who helps me with the tough questions, and who met me all the way in Peru just to see who I work with and have some nice meals 🥔 @hrockenwagner thanks a million! Ich liebe dich!
Pardon me but I'm about to get sooooooooo faded 😎
Thanks so much to all who came out and said hi @westcoastcraft ! I had a blast meeting old and new friends. Until next time, Bay!
Taking a break from studio life this weekend to show at @westcoastcraft in San Francisco! Loving this warm welcome from the Bay Area. 💕 As my high school math teacher Jim Lau would say "come and see me!!!" 📸: c/o @knitwitknitwit
✨Ready for San Francisco✨this is an unrelated but I think fabulous sprinkle display at San Camilo market in Arequipa, Perú.
Some days are all spread sheets and tech packs and paying bills. Yesterday was not one of those days 🌞
@poppyandpima ✌️🌈 by the way, Bay Area peoples, come see me @westcoastcraft June 10+11 (that's one week from this Saturday, friends)
Happy weekend, I hope you're having the vest time. Apparently this is something you can make from two rectangles of fabric woven on a rigid heddle loom ☝️
Hola Alpacas!! I made a thing (and a pattern!!!) based on a thing @sambarskyknitter made, and now you can make it too! The pattern is in the gorgeous new issue of @knitwitknitwit issue 6 and also features an interview with the knitter himself by the incomparable @jess_schreibstein !!! I'm star struck. Also I'm @knitwitknitwit 's new project editor (😱)! What patterns would you like to see in the pages of Knit Wit? Get at me! I love making dreams come true. ✨especially if alpaca are involved.
I may have accidentally made a crazy quilt but I can really never tell until it's quilted because I find unquilted quilt tops to be the most depressing thing ever. I think I might replace the center square of cream pocho with blue... 🤷🏼♀️
