Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
Inspired by the whimsy of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, these socks celebrate the innocence and joy of the first Harry Potter book.

Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Grayson gets a Christmas hat every year, & for this hat (his 4th!) he requested some colorwork. I decided to go simple but graphic, & I’m so happy with the result! This is basically a color theory study (my favorite class in college!) & while I chose rather muted colors in Brooklyn Tweed’s Loft yarn, you could mix brights, neutrals,...
Knitting: Pillow / Cushion
For Valentine’s Day this year, I knit Grayson a heart shaped pillow in yellow, which is my absolute favorite color & I say is the color of my love.

Knitting: Beanie, Toque
My sister Erin is a hard one to shop for - she has great style but it’s incredibly specific. Neutral, simple, clean lines, nothing too crazy.

Knitting: Beanie, Toque
My Dad is a very particular shopper. He’s the kind of guy who finds a pair of shoes he likes, & then buys 6 pairs so that he makes sure he has backup for 10 years down the road. He’s got a simple, classic style that doesn’t deal with much fuss, & he very rarely wears hats. But everyone needs a hat - especially in cold Midwest winters! S...

Knitting: Beanie, Toque
This cozy cap was born out of a love for yarn - Twirl Yarns Petals, to be exact. I saw this yarn at Brooklyn General Store during a trip to NYC & it was like a light was shining on it screaming “BUY ME & MAKE EVERYTHING”. Somehow I restrained myself to only one (okay, two) skein(s) & decided to design a hat that shows off all the gl...

I bought the yarn for these fingerless gloves while I was studying abroad in Spring 2016.
