Euanthe

Euanthe is one of Jupiter’s irregular moons in the Ananke group of moons (Jupiter has a whopping 53 named moons, and many unnamed ones, to boot). The moon is classified as eccentric and retrograde, which is a fantastic way to describe this shawl: a bit off the beaten path, but not too far, it’s both fun to work and toasty …

Bobo’s Socks

When playing around with stitch patterns for this sock and mitt set, I settled on something meditative and textural, so I can make more of these while watching my little puppy playing with his best doggie friend in our backyard. His name is Bowie, but we call him Bobo, and these socks are an homage to him. MaterialsFinished Measurements: Adult …

We Belong Together

True confession time: I LOVE Pat Benatar. Like, absolutely adore her music. My girls and I listen to her a lot currently, and, when I was in middle school, my sister and a friend spent hours listening and re-listening to a tape of We Belong on our little tape player-recorder with the sole purpose of writing down all of the …

True Blue

There is not much I love more than 80s music ear worms, so when one of my test knitters suggested I name this shawl True Blue, two things happened: I squeed with delight, and started humming and singing True Blue by Madonna on repeat, much to my family’s dismay. “True love, you’re the one I’m dreaming of, your heart fits …

The Ticket

Pure, unadulterated, neon-tinted pleasure. That’s what this shawl gave me, soup to nuts. From deciding to put these two colors together to the rhythm of the Tweedy Sections to the leafy lace sections to the brick-y border, I smiled my way through this piece, and once it was done, found myself sighing and saying, “That’s the ticket…”
