Cropped Ten of Hearts cardigan

Last week, you got a look at the cardigan I’m sharing with you today. Aaand here it is again! I actually finished this two months ago, but had to wait to share it until I finished and photographed the dress I sewed to wear with it! This is actually the… read more »

Not forgotten: Cath Kidston inspired cardigan

A year and a half ago, I started and completed a cardigan. I never took photos, which is really unlike me with sweaters. It wasn’t because I wasn’t pleased with it, or didn’t wear it, as I was and did (and do). I just never got around to it—until today!… read more »

Roses and Vianne

Happy New Year! No sharing of resolutions or reflections here, just marching on with a new year! I think sometimes I enjoy the process of organizing my thoughts in writing more than the commitment, so this year, none of that. I have plenty of ideas of course, but I think… read more »

Nancy Drew and the Clue in the Wrap Dress

Actually, this post title should be Nancy Drew and the Clue in the Wrap Dress and Cardigan, but that’s a bit of a mouthful, don’t you think? 😉 This post is brought to you by a dress I finished 8 months ago and a cardigan I finished at least a… read more »

Mary Rebecca

The first finished thing you’re getting to see from me in 2015 is the last thing I finished knitting in 2014! (And I apologize that we’ve entered the season where you’re mostly going to see me stand next to this stack of hat boxes in the guest bedroom trying to… read more »

The galaxy dress and a cardigan that almost was not

Some sewing and knitting today for you! You may recall that earlier in the fall, we established that I really love galaxy prints. Well, now I’ve had the opportunity to sew a galaxy print dress! This dress comes as a result of being generously offered to try out fabric by… read more »

A vintage-inspired Jenna cardigan… that I sewed!

I sewed a cardigan. Now there’s a sentence I never expected to come out of my mouth in a million years. Being a knitter, cardigans are the domain of my knitting needles. Not my sewing machine or serger. The idea of actually sewing a cardigan was never something I had… read more »

Ten of hearts cardigan

This fall I’ve been on a knitting roll, which happens to a lot of us knitters when that season hits. I finished off one old project from the spring, I’m working on finishing another from the spring, and just this week I finished one from literally 4 and a half… read more »

My Knit for Victory Hetty cardigan

I’m back with my second Knit for Victory project! Today is the last day of the challenge, can you believe it? It was actually a fluke that this project was finished before KFV wrapped up. All last week I was sick, and as I was starting to feel better, I… read more »

Vintage knitting pattern: Date-Maker cardigan

In my post on campus-inspired vintage fashions, a number of you expressed that you really liked the Date-Maker sweater pattern that I showed! Here it is again… It comes from Columbia Style Book vol. 108, a 1946 knitting booklet in my collection. I like the striped sweater on the cover,… read more »

Cardigan twins?

Today the funniest thing occurred, and something rare in the life of a knitter, I think. A new reader to my blog, Miss Margarita, left me a comment this afternoon, and when I went to her blog I discovered an adorable photo of her… wearing a sweater I’ve actually knit… read more »

Finished project: Olivette cardigan

Today I finished a cardigan that I knit entirely to match one blouse. Yes, one blouse. Last fall, I bought a lovely short-sleeved silk blouse at one of our favorite antique malls. There’s one booth that is always filled with clothes that fit both Mel and I. They aren’t always… read more »

Ivory sweaters

I’ve been trying to decide what color and brand of yarn I’d like to use for the Briar Rose Knit-Along. And I’ve come to a decision on color. Well, it’s sort of a color. Potential stains be damned, I’m going with: ivory. Because I really need a versatile short-sleeved sweater.… read more »
