With an all-over textured pattern and modern silhouette, Kapsel is a versatile cardigan that is perfect for the office, outings with friends, or cozy nights in. It features a flattering modified drop shoulder, big front pockets, and a comfortable fit that’s as stylish as it is snuggly. Whether paired with favourite jeans or pj’s, you’ll find yourself reaching for Kapsel over and over again.
KAPSEL is a cardigan that has been a true testament of my love of modern, yet comfortable silhouettes. I set out over a year ago to design an everyday essential cardigan with a textured, clean aesthetic and a flattering fit that works on a variety of figures and with a wide range of silhouettes. I wanted it to be worn to work, at home - heck even to bed. Dressed up or down, paired with ready to wear & your fave handmades - I hope it works with your capsule wardrobe. I truly want you to enjoy your best life in it.

When that special piece that's missing from your closet turns from a rough sketch to your new fave sweater! A wonderful kind of magic that I'll never tire of. Veronika knits up quickly and feels so darn good for the soul. I can't help but smile every time I see her. I like to describe her as Aritzia meets rustic wool...lol. She's one of those sweaters you can live in - you know, my fave kind - the ones you can throw on with most things, layer through all the seasons....heck you can wear it with your pjs around the house (which you definitely know I'll be doing...lol).

With Atmen I knew I wanted to design and knit something that was meditative and soothing but that was still fun to make. You know the kind of pattern I mean.....the knitflixing kind...lol. Read More
Each year I get so excited whenever Tin Can Knits does a guest post on the blog for our KAL's! I love these gals and really enjoy the wealth of information on their blog!

I'm happy to have Alexa here today chatting all about STRIPES! I love stripes and so do they and so we thought it would be a fun topic to cover!

So I'm turning 40 this year and I thought it would be fun to tackle my "I'd love to learn..." list! One of the top things that I've been wanting to finally get the courage up to learn is steeking! Yep - you got it! The dreaded cutting of our knitting! It sounds and looks scary but also fun! I remembered when I first learned to sew I thought zippers and buttonholes would scare me forever...but guess what - they aren't so bad once you learn. So once I reminded myself the same goes for steeking I knew I could do it.
But who wants to learn to do something a bit scary and intimidating alone? Not me! It's always more fun to have friends for support, people to learn from, lean on, and laugh & cry with! So Andrea of Drea Renee Knits and Caitlin of Boyland Knitworks and I are teaming up to take on the steek! We're going to have a EEK stEEk-along!!! That's right! We're going to take the "eek" out of the steek and we want YOU to join us! So don't fear the steek, Read More
I'm so happy & excited to release the FEYRE shawl knitting pattern today! FEYRE was inspired by the main character Feyre, from the Court of Thorn and Roses Series by Sarah J.

Relaxing to knit combinations of Stockinette stitch, Garter stitch and Slip Stitch Ribs combine to make a shawl filled with texture that's fabulous for showing off your new favorite marl, tonal or hand dyed yarn!
