Waiting for the Mail

I thought I would write about how I finished 5 test knits (3 adult sweaters, 2 baby items) during the NY on Pause, but I have a funnier topic. My Mom is going stir-crazy, more than me. She likes doing Word Finds and other puzzles but it’s not something than can occupy anyone for more... Continue Reading →

The Rhinebeck Rush

I made a mistake.  I bit off more than I could chew.  You might be thinking, “but Kally, that’s nothing new for you.”  Yeah, but this time I’m drowning and I’m actually setting amounts of knitting that has to be completed each night.  20 rounds of a sleeve to be exact. I promised my Aunt... Continue Reading →

An Ode to Mom

My Mom doesn’t knit, but she can recognize ribbing and cables. My Mom doesn’t spin, but she can pick out Merino. She doesn’t quite understand my obsession with yarn hoarding, but she always helps add to the yarn cabinet. She’ll happily come to knitting conventions and events to hang out, and when people ask if... Continue Reading →

I “Only” Have 28 Projects Left

I was guest host at Knit@Nite a few weeks back.  It was a blast but I made the mistake of casually mentioning that I’m working on 31 projects.  Sort of.  Some are from 2013, which is pretty cool since I had started knitting in 2009/2010.  I think I should get an award for Longest Procrastination....

Sesame Street Sweaterettes

I joke that I'm the love child of Oscar the Grouch and Eeyore.  People laugh when I say that but I wish it was funny from my end…  In college my friends and I had (and still use) nicknames from Winnie the Pooh.  I didn’t even bat an eye when I was elected as Eeyore. ... Continue Reading →


I spent the weekend unraveling things.  By all means this is nothing new, I make mistakes all the time.  I even have a system when I mess up, it’s called The Seven Stages of Stupidity: Curse and scream Wonder why I didn’t listen to the voice in my head/read the pattern correctly/listen to Alexis Try...

Tick Tock Hearts Cowl

I was bored the other day so I thought of checking the Swatch website.  Now, when I get bored the lengths I'll go to amuse myself range from extreme (getting a tattoo) to mild (starting my 35th WIP).  I think buying a watch leans towards the mild side.  Besides, what are the odds of finding...

How to Set Up Yarn for Dyeing

I like to prepare my yarn for dyeing by adding more ties to the yarn so it doesn't become a soggy mess during, and after, the process. Cut 8-9" lengths of cotton or bamboo (do NOT use wool, it could felt to your yarn).  If your yarn is thick, cut longer strands. 2.  Split your... Continue Reading →

Humphrey Bakes a Cake!

Humphrey the Unicorn is one of my patterns up on Ravelry: Humphrey the Unicorn He's so cute I decided to chronicle some of his (mis)adventures.  Humphrey is very kind-hearted but doesn't always think things through when he gets an idea in his head. Here's his adventure baking a Unicorn Cake.  Will he succeed or crash and... Continue Reading →
