Works in Progress: February 17, 2021

Week 3 Update – Good progress, but lighter on projects. It is now week 3 of my February Works in Progress effort.  I’ve made some great progress on the green cowl and cabled scarf I shared last week. The cowl still requires me to pay attention to the chart so this will not get advertised…

Corrugated: Cowl Update & Matching Hat

The Corrugated Cowl was originally shared as a free pattern in November 2013. I’m continuing to work through my older patterns and update them and when I went to look for this file, I was surprised to find I’d drafted a matching hat. I knit myself a hat in the cream-colored alpaca to match my…

Beacon: Hat and Cowl Set

Free patterns to start 2021. Happy new year! This is one year I don’t mind turning the calendar to a new page at all (Yes, I use paper calendars. It’s a whole thing. Highly recommend.). I am looking forward to 2021 and think there’s so much to be excited about. In working on this pattern,…

Dorrance Street Cap

I’m really excited to share the Dorrance Street Cap, now available as a downloadable pdf on Ravelry. Dorrance Street is the starting point of the Pride Parade in Providence, RI. And it’s an amazing parade that happens at night with lights and music, and is generally, as mentioned, amazing. That serves as the inspiration for…

Rhode Trip: A hat and cowl reboot

The Rhode Trip Hat and Cowl are the new names of the patterns formerly known as “Hat No. 5” and “A Cowl for Hat No. 5”. This hat was the fifth hat I designed in 2012 while knitting hats for a great project run by  a local yarn store (Lovelyarns), called the 500 Hats Project. …

Washington Park

This has been an incredibly busy time – new job in a new home in a new state. As I sit here, I can’t help but reflect on how incredible all these changes are. It felt like the move was planned and gamed out and focused on for months then all of sudden it happened…

Sherwood Hat

Sherwood is an allover cabled hat in fingering weight wool yarn.

Spring!

Now that three straight days of rain have passed, I think it may actually be Spring in Baltimore. I’ve finished a lot of projects the last couple of weeks and the great weather meant they could be photographed. I finished a spring cardigan in white superwash wool for mom. It took about 8 months of…

Corrugated Cowl (and matching hat)

When I purchased the Misti Alpaca Chunky yarn from Woolworks ¬†months ago, I bought four skeins. I thought I would need the entire ~440 yards for a generously sized, warm, bulky cowl. Since I ended up only using three skeins (~327 yards) for the cowl, I decided to make a matching hat. The hat is…
