Last week Quince & Co. published a series of scarf patterns. I’m pleased to say that one of them is mine.
Have you tried Quince yarn? It’s loverly. I used Tern; just one skein. In seaweed colorway. I spent every summer as a kid swimming in the ocean. I think seaweed color is ingrained in my [...]

When the Gossamer Stars pattern became available at the Interweave Store, I decided to knit a sample, or rather, one for myself (!) in lace weight yarn.

I can wear knitted skirts year round and I’ve always been a scarf girl. Today, I’ll talk about the Gossamer Stars Scarf. [...]
