it's what i do

Knitting patterns and blog ramblings about knitting and sewing. ... and gardening, and cooking. Basically all the makes. There's a lot of strange knowledge in my brain that I'm hoping can do some good out in the world.

Two designs, together at last.

(Orange sweater = 2nd Nature Design impending pattern: "Perfectly Simple Pullover" with ruffled collar and cuffs in Rowan Kid Classic.)
(Scarf = 2nd Nature Design pattern: "Luscious Lengthwise Linen-Stitch Scarf" made with a variegated mohair, a bulky baby alpaca, and a Colinette ribbon.)

Curtains from Ikea.
Because Susanna had them, and I loved them.
