First Edition

The gentle high low hem of First Edition dips perfectly in the back to wear with leggings, if pants feel like oppression on any given day. Cozy sleeves and a texture pattern echoing classic book end papers, the asymmetric neckline tops off the piece with a quirky touch of perfection.

Odetta

Odetta

Odetta is a sassy, feisty lady. After growing up in the country, she lives a life in the city amongst loud crowds and tall buildings. She’s found her people, those who accept and embrace her quirks with fondness. These mitts are in honor of her: edges softened with love and perfect for chasing chickens down city streets.

Weathervane

Weathervane

As the fields turn golden in the late season sun, a strong breeze will build into a chill wind, forcing the weathervane to creak into a new direction. This change in weather, going from pleasantly warm to cold always catches me by surprise and I’m left scrambling for something that will provide protection from the chill. Weathervane is the perfect blend of quick and beautiful; A weekend knit that will work with whatever you have in your stash. Solid, variegated, or tonal, it will be the perfect canvas to showcase your yarn.

Juxtaposition

Juxtaposition

This transitional shrug bridges the juxtaposition of Summer and Fall. Ideal for that between space where it’s not quite time to put away the summer wear but not actually cool enough to pull out the beloved flannel. The DK weight shrug’s squishy texture stitch and deep ribbing provides the breathable warmth required for this in between season of life.

Boardwalk

Boardwalk

Ferris Wheels, tufts of cotton candy, and hot summer nights were the inspiration for this sweater. As always, the goal of practicality is threaded throughout the entire top down piece; lightweight and airy with enough structure to give shape without making you uncomfortable in the heat. Cap sleeves and high-low style offers practical design elements beautifully balanced against the whimsical colorwork and hem statements. The stranded colorwork is only on the front, to avoid accidentally snagging anything you might brush up against, and the bobbles at the hem provide just enough weight to keep the edges from curling while maintaining the charming scallop.

Bobble Paw

Bobble Paw

This triangle shawl has gentle angles and is the ideal summer travel project. Beginning in a soothing stockinette that changes to chunky garter stripes, it also has the occasional clusters of eyelets to provide visual interest and shaping support. Ending in a fun lace pattern, it offers a built in fastening solution to make the shawl extremely wearable during the active outings summer weather demands. The bobble bind off offers a charming and quirky touch without branching into a childish appearance.
