Knitting Mondays: Gift Knitting and a Flügel Giveaway

It’s Jillian with a bit of knitting. We got a new a roof for our house this fall so I am knitting quite a few gifts for winter birthdays and various holidays. Here’s what I’ve done so far: I knit a long (80″) infinity scarf for a friend for her birthday. I used Briar Rose Charity, doubled.   This hat and I have had many words. It’s an easy pattern, a cable rib, but it took me four tries to get it right. Now it’s going to be a hard gift to giveaway. I’ve still got mittens, 3 scarves, a pair of socks and 4 more hats to knit. Go knitter go! What are you knitting for gifts ...

It’s a long, long plane ride from where I live… The most stressful part of any travel, for me, is choosing my travel knitting.

You need really engaging knitting for the boring parts of the trip – the long waits at the airport, the train rides, the time spent waiting for your brother to get finish his phone call before you can leave ...

Spinning Tuesdays: Say Hello to Fall with Silk

I frequently call it shades of dirt, but not in a bad way – it’s rich and multi-hued with color grounded in browns. When Chris starts something new she sometimes sends me a little to play with, here’s my silk:   I dug in my stash for some Briar Rose fiber to blend it by plying with and came up with two possibilities in BFL. Just from looking at the photo which one would you choose? I bet on the darker colorway, it has more ...
