WIPs This Week

The winner of my review copy of60 Quick Knits for Little Kids is Gina in the SF Bay Area, who has been emailed.

I total for got to mention in my last blog post the first in a series of articles I’ve written for Mason-Dixon Knitting: check it out here!

I made a lot of knitting progress last week. I knit a hat:


This is the 21 Color Slouch, designed by Virginia Sattler-Reimer and knit in all 21 introductory colors of Blue Sky Fibers Woolstok. It came as a kit, with 12 yards of each of the 21 colors. A very clever way to introduce the colors and far more fun than a color card!

And I started this:


This is Granito, designed by Joji Locatelli. I’m knitting mine in my new favorite yarn, Wollmeise Blend, in the Pistazie colorway. I’ve made some good progress on it, but now I’m setting it aside as I have some non-public design work I need to do. Such is life.

Meanwhile, the little prince is catching up on his beauty sleep!



  1. That is the cutest face on Loki! Adorable!

    That pistachio color is very soothing. Almost lulls me into a ZZzzzzzzz…..

  2. All those ends that need sewing in on the 21 Colour Slouch Hat I’m not so sure I’d enjoy that so is there a better way to do it and wouldn’t you have jogs in the knitting if it’s done in the round?????
