Pattern Diving: Dru Faust

One of my favorite things to do is figure out what my characters would wear. Even better when I can dig through the pattern library on Ravelry for historically inspired knits. All links lead back to Ravelry. All images come from their respective pattern pages and are property of the original owners. Dru 1920s Cloche… Continue reading Pattern Diving: Dru Faust

The Knits of Off the Rails

I've mentioned a few times that my health since last fall hasn't been great, and this prevented me from putting out a new pattern in honor of the OFF THE RAILS release in October. If you've been chomping at the bit for something to knit, here are a few patterns I pulled from Ravelry that… Continue reading The Knits of Off the Rails

Moreau House Boot Cuffs

It's been a long time coming, but I finally got it done: the pattern for Moreau House. These nice, squishy boot cuffs have a "ghost" of texture to them, and are super quick to whip up.

A Hard Thing

I know this isn't one of my regular blog update days. But I didn't think this could wait. As you all know, we recently became a single-income household--not by choice. We've been doing what we can to rectify the situation, but it hasn't been enough. Right now, we're about $400 short of being able to… Continue reading A Hard Thing

Character Aesthetic: Evie Cappelli

I thought I'd do something a little different this time around, and show off some knitting and crochet patterns that remind me the characters in THE SPIDER'S WEB and THE FERRYMEN. All of these patterns are available on Ravelry. Some of them are free, some are not. And no, none of these are my designs.… Continue reading Character Aesthetic: Evie Cappelli
