    Sweater Season: A warren of Warrens

    One of the most fun—and the trickiest—parts of colorwork is picking colors. There are so many choices! High contrast, low contrast, analogous colors, complements... the choices are seemingly endless.  So, where do you start? I tell my students to think about what drew you to the design originally: what about the color combination do you respond to? What creates its main visual impact? For...

    Sloane's Elfriede FO + Forge Shawls for Newbies

    Funny things happen when I'm between major-project deadlines. (Those of you who have known me a while know the result is usually random burst of hat designs between mid-October and late-November.) This fall, after I finished the sample for Marley, I thought I should finally try to do a little bit of that selfish knitting I promised myself I would start doing this year,...

    Sweater Season: Work Rows, Not Lengths

    [Sloane's Warren pullover, from our upcoming Deep Winter 2021 Collection] Okay, we admit it: we're both die-hard sweater knitters, and we think pretty much any time of the year is sweater season.

But, both of us have a penchant for starting new projects in this after-holiday time, as a moment to reflect and start to focus on something a little longer-term after our frenzied needles knit...

    #WIPWednesday: Sloane's Raven-on-Fawn Kuffel

    Just after Chart B... After doing zero selfish knitting for...years, I seem to have caught the bug! I started my Kuffel while I was blocking the body of my Cozy Classic Raglan a few weeks ago, and I'm now finished with the second colorwork section and cruising through the final sets of short rows and increases. I'll own a little bit of "widest point of...

    FO Friday: Sloane's Weld + La Bien Aimée Raglan

    Y'all, I made a fuzzy pink all-stockinette sweater...and I love it. My stay-at-home knitting hasn't exactly been going at breakneck speed, but my first Social Distancing Sweater is finally an FO: I finished my Cozy Classic Raglan this week! It's also the first thing I've made for myself that hasn't been a design sample since I test-knit the Divide hat for Emily in <checks watch> November...
