Marguerite Hat Is Available

The hat is up! Please visit Sanguine Gryphon's etsy site if you would like to purchase a copy of the pattern. :^)

Her Gaia DK (cashmere/silk) yarn is easily the most decadent yarn I have ever knitted.

A Hat & An Ornament

(Just a quick note - I have added a chart with Autobots & Decepticons, in matched size, on one page. It's in the sidebar).

I am collaborating with Sanguine Gryphon again, and I have designed a hat. I think you will love it (I know I had a hard time sending the sample back, as usual, haha!)

The hat was knit in Gaia DK in the color Nematocyst. Gaia is a lush cashmere/silk blend, and it is pure bliss to knit with it. The pattern should be available on Sanguine Gryphon's etsy shop in a few weeks. I will keep you posted!






I couldn't get the color quite right with my camera. It's closer to the non-yellow one but I think I look a little better in the yellow.

I made an ornament just before the holiday break. It turned out quite cute but it was a pain to make. I switched to a much thinner yarn and needle than the pattern called for.


I've been kind of slow on the knitting front in the last couple of months. I made a couple of very satisfying ribbed scarves but I don't have pictures yet (and I forgot to take a pic before giving one away. Dur). I have several long-term projects on the needles but I've been pretty distracted.

And I have become plant-obsessed at the wrong time of year. Every time I move house I have to pare down my houseplants, but sure as the seasons... if I live in one place long enough the obsession eventually returns and I end up with every good windowsill packed. I even have a few on my table right now. Obviously I fill up the yard at the first chance but that's less of a commitment than houseplants.
