March 1st 2010

I've been a little AWOL the last week. I've had a few things on the go, including a new print design and possibly a new spring fabric design.

I got an email from Celine a couple of days ago to tell me that she'd spotted a post on the ReadyMade blog of a photo she'd taken of herself in the thrummed mittens I made for her! These particular ones are made from scratch, but they give a tutorial showing how to make "after-thought" thrummed mittens by stringing roving through an already knit pair of mittens in alternating stitches. Neat idea! I may have to try this with some of my older, not-so-warm mittens!

I'll have some illustrations that I worked on a while ago to post here in the next week or so. They're the set of six illustrations that I did for New York Magazine's Weddings Spring/Summer 2010 issue. It'll be on newsstands shortly!


  1. oh neat! i really wish i know how to knit after seeing celine's pair!

  2. They were actually really easy to make! As long as you know how to knit and purl, you can make them no problem! (Or try making the ones in the ReadyMade tutorial!)
