  • Mithril!

    Posted on August 28, 2013 by annetarsia in Blog.

                        Mithril has actually been finished for about a week, but a project this great deserves a photoshoot! Plucky Singles is a wonderful choice for this project, and it is my new favorite sweater.  I can dress it up or down, and it is completely comfortable.  […]

  • Jill’s beautiful Bohus sweater

    Posted on August 27, 2013 by annetarsia in Blog.

    Today I heard from a knitter, Jill Weber, that I met when she took my class on Bohus knitting at the 2011 IK Knitting Lab in San Mateo, California.  I am a shameless enabler at these things, and really love it when students have the confidence to order a Bohus kit and make a sweater […]

    I lost my knitting yesterday.  Bill and I were doing a pick-up photoshoot for the Book, and the Jeep was piled with boxes – all of the Book projects, plus yarn, clothing, and photographic equipment.  I grabbed the final sleeve for Mithril, so that I would have something to knit while he set up.  I […]

  • Chelsea’s shawl

                      Chelsea’s shawl was bound off last night.  I had such fun knitting it, that I kept going after the 32 rows of chevron called for in the pattern.  I had plenty of yarn left, and I like a larger shawl, so I kept going for another […]
