Aspergillum

Aspergillum
Fresh and airy pullovers with an easy fit are summer essentials, especially for travelers. The Aspergillum tunic (or crop top), is a great example—pull it on as a beach coverup or pair it with strappy sandals and a cami for evening cocktails—this piece has multiple lives. Knit in a delicate lace yarn, Aspergillum...

All Night Casino

All Night Casino
Last night I practically RAN away from the computer at the end of my work day. My brain felt like it had a fist squeezing it, for sure. I just wanted to get my hands on my knitting and finish my spades shawl. I had gotten quite far along on...

Atlantique

Atlantique
Can I just say—I love Atlantique! It is so soft, light, and airy. Perfect for warm weather and yet so practical for every season. In spring, summer, and fall it stands alone with sleeves or without as that piece you will wear again and again with shorts, skirts, jeans, and nice trousers. It...

Barrel O' Monkey

Barrel O' Monkey
A couple of weeks ago, when David and I got to meet baby Knitspot in person, I didn’t go empty-handed. With me, I had a project I’d kept secret from you—one that Erica hadn’t even seen (though she was the one to suggest we use it for baby’s first Knitspot...

See the Sea
Back in January, we wrapped up our ENVY 2015 Club with this final design, See the Sea - an asymmetrical crescent shawl that makes the most of a gradient yarn or one with random striping, the kind of colorations you get when hand spinning with dyed roving. The pattern includes two sizes; one...

Sky Cap

Sky Cap
Last year, we launched the first Bare Naked Knitspot Club with the Sky Ladder pattern package—a multi-sized pattern for rectangles that could serve a variety of purposes from scarf, to wrap, to blanket. I knit the baby sized blanket as my prototype with the plan of using it for modeling...

Birnam Wood Wrap

Birnam Wood Wrap
This cozy wrap is the sibling to the Dovecote Shawl. the repeating theme of simple diamond motifs is played once again here. First, in a straightforward direction, then changing to a crosswise formation, and eventually diverging into multiple diagonal pathways. An engaging knit from start to finish in luxurious sport-weight...

Steamy

Steamy
  Spotted while running: a carpet of brilliant yellow aconite against dead leaves, dead sticks, dead grass, and bare shrubbery. They look like they’re dancing! I finally saw a crocus in our own yard. Yesterday, the temps climbed all the way into the 60s, though we’re paying for it today...
