All things new and bright

The winter holidays are upon us again, and as the days get darker and colder we snuggle up and fill our lives with as much light and joy as it’s possible to soak in. (And a happy Hanukkah, to those who are celebrating tonight!)




And to those of you who are still gift knitting, hang in there! You’ll totally make it. No panicking – take some deep breaths and solace in the fact that Lauren’s there with you:


(She’s almost there on the Featherweight gift sweater!)

I’m celebrating two things in particular today. The first is that I finally got around to weaving in those final ends and wore my own CustomFit Featherweight out tonight:


I love it fiercely – the set-in sleeves help keep this worn-open style anchored on my body, the fabric is wonderful (I used Quince and Co. Tern in “Barnacle”), and I just adore the design. Hannah did such an amazing job of pulling together simple elements to make an incredibly classic piece, with this sweater.

The second celebration is that this site has gotten a much-needed overhaul! If you’re reading via a feed reader or your email, please click on through and poke around. We’ve re-organized things around here to make key posts and design info easier to find, and to be (much) prettier. We’ll be making more additions to the site throughout the next couple of months, too, but I’m already so thrilled with how things are looking.

A new sweater, a new look, light, and warmth. Bring it on, winter!

  1. one little request…when you list your Calendar of Events, could you put the city/state where it’s at? I’m sure I’m not the only one who doesn’t have a clue where some of the events are located. I’d love to try to make an event if anywhere near the mid-west.

  2. Happy holidays! Your house looks do cozy and welcoming. That’s what I love about this time of year. And your sweater looks fabulous. A beautiful knit.

  3. Ah, I just might have to give in and put Featherweight on my list. Yours is lovely. Happy holidays and stay warm!

  4. Sure looks better than the one I made a couple of years ago!

  5. Happy Hanukkah !!! I hope to see you in 2015
