Knitting: Beanie, Toque
This hat is the knitting equivalent of the old Best Friend necklaces - you know the one where you either got the side that said “Be Fri” or “St End”? Only this time you pick your main color and contrasting color (“Be-Fri”) and then swap them for the version you give to your best friend (“St-End”). Best part - 2 skeins of most fingering weight y...
Knitting: Scarf
You either saw the name of this, clicked and thought “yep, extremely giant oversized scarf, checks out” or you need to google “Kravitz scarf” to understand the knitwear stylistic genius of Lenny Kravitz.

All matter in the universe comes from stars. What starts as a ball of hydrogen and helium gases, becomes the building blocks for everything through millions and billions of years of gravity and pressure. In some stars, with enough gravity, pressure, and heat, nuclear fusion occurs and new elements are formed. With the right conditions, fusion c...
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
Like other heavy elements, metals were formed through nuclear fusion after a star died and became a supernova. Although most elements were relatively unknown before the 19th and 20th centuries, metallic elements have shaped human development from the very beginning. Even parts of our history - the Bronze Age and the Iron Age - are defined by wh...

Fibonacci numbers are a sequence of numbers that begin with 0 and 1 and continue with the next number as a sum of the previous two - ex: 0+1=1, 1+1=2, 1+2=3, 2+3=5, 3+5=8, and so on to infinity. This sequence is commonly used in computer algorithms, but more interestingly, appears in many forms in nature - from spiral galaxies to nautilus shells.

We have spent years driving or flyi...

I have become slightly obsessed with peacock feathers since I knit the snow peacock by Tonks a few years ago as a wedding present for my sister-in-law.

So I made the Debra Peacock Tail Shawl for my mom and grandma began the pouting and sighing until I assured her that one was on the way, designed especiall...
