What’s in the Hopper

Hi everyone!  It has been a busy week as I’ve been working behind the scenes getting the Passport Mitts pattern ready for general release.


I’ve been working with the large size to get that motif centered on the back of the hand, and I’m very happy with the solution.  Now to finish up the rewriting and to send the draft to the tech editor tonight.

I will announce the release here as well as on Ravelry.  I can’t wait!!!  We’re also having a knitalong in my Ravelry group starting October 1st.  Look for more information here in the days to come!

Although it has taken a backseat for a few days, here is the progress on the Colorwork Tee:


This weekend I will be playing with numbers, measurements, calculations, and ordering some more Sunday Knits yarn.  I can’t wait to move ahead with this!

I hope you all have a great weekend and I’ll catch up with you soon!


In this blog, you will find not only an exploration of all that is good in our knitterly lives, but also a variety of posts tying together my passions for writing, photography, and my home state of Oregon.

    1. Thank you, Alex! They’ll be out soon – next week, I hope! I thought about placing a different pattern on the sleeves, but I really like this one. The charted pattern will soon change and will move into the Espresso and Carrot colorways…but I’m probably going to have to start a new sweater after I work the math this weekend. I guess I’ll just have to consider this another swatch!

  1. I love knitting mitts. I haven’t made a pair in a while. What a great pattern. I’d be interested if you are looking for test knitters. I have the perfect yarn for them.
