POW: Sebastian’s Cardigan

There’s been a lot of debate around the Interweave office lately about summer knitting. Some people love the lightweight yarns and lace and can’t stand to have heavy wool in their lap when it’s 100 degrees out; others want to keep knitting their Aran-weight pullovers and chunky cowls, temperatures be damned.

Spring cleaning season might be over, but for me, the urge to purge all of my excess junk lasts throughout the summer. Something about the heat of the season makes me want to shed all extra stuff in my life. Our Stashbuster sale is perfect for my summer purging—I get all kinds of ideas on […]

It took a really, really long time for me to get here, and it feels good to be working […]

POW: Crossover Tank

So you can imagine my delight when I saw the projects for the Dream Team story in knitscene Summer 2017—a plethora of stripes! It’s like editor Hannah Baker selected […]

POW: Martha’s Vineyard Tote

One of my favorite things about summer is going to my local farmer’s market. I love waking up early on Saturday morning, hopping on my bike, and cruising down to the market before it gets too busy (and too hot). I go every week, and as the weather warms, I really enjoy seeing the stalls […]
