Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
This modern take on the classic knit log cabin style is slightly skewed to create an asymmetrical triangle shawl while retaining the traditional, sharp, right angle joins of the color blocks. The cotton and silk content of the yarn give it great durability and drape, with a subtle shine, and just the right amount of warmth for all but the coldes...

I find comfort in these colors and in the classic chevron that was to be seen in so many of those matc...

Knitting: Mittens
I love a good basic mitten pattern but they always seem to be a bit gappy between the cuff and the thumb gusset.

The ribbing almost disappears between cuff and thumb and grows organically for the thumb gusset making ...
