Knitting, interviews and Life

Hey Everyone!

In what free time I have had the past few days, which hasn’t seemed like all that much, I have made some progress on my second pair of KnitPicks Palette yarn in Victorian socks. I am currently working on the heel of the first sock. 

Today I had an interview with a local small yarn producer and Shop. I am not going to say which one, for privacy sake. I have to wait a few more days until I find out whether I move on on the hiring process. This job would totally be #jobgoals for someone like me.

That is one of the things I love about living here in Portland; There are so many locally owned yarn stores.

Wraps and Catalogues

Hey Everyone! 

Today I have been making progress on a couple of my WIP’s. I got the cuff of the second sock that I am knitting up using Cascade Heritage Sock Yarn half way done. 

Once I got the cuff half way done, I switched to working on the wrap I have in progress. The wrap I am working on, I am using Cascade Eco+ Yarn. I am using a K3P1 pattern.


It is a really pretty dark sea blue, it is heathered navy blue and forest green. While working at the studio we had a lace weight Todd and Duncan cashmere yarn that was a similar color. 

The Cascade Eco+ Yarn is an Aran weight yarn. It is a bulkier yarn. I am using size 9 bamboo circular needles. With this combination it is warm, thick and cozy,  yet not super bulky. 

Today, I also got a new KnitPicks catalogue in the mail. I love looking through the catalogues, and getting ideas for what I want to knit, in the future. I have a long wish list of yarns and knitting books.

KnitPicks Sock Inspiration 

Hey Everyone!

I got another KnitPicks Catalog in the mail yesterday. 

This time, the promoted yarns and patterns are for Socks, which is right up my alley at the moment. 

I love getting new project ideas and expanding on my knitting skill set. I like trying new things. 


I love the color combinations they have shown in the above picture. It totally makes me want to knit more socks than I have yarn for. 

Socks have been the hot project for me lately, especially after a couple good hauls of the KnitPicks Palette yarn. I definitely love the selection I have, and am excited to see the finished projects. At the same time I am always looking for new stuff to try, work on and work with. Ask any knitter, they will tell you that there is more to life than one type of yarn, and one pattern.
