My handiwork.

It's exciting to see something you've worked on all fancy and in print.

During the past year I did some sample knitting for two amazing people Daniel Yuhas and Carrie Bostick Hoge. Two pieces have been out there in the internets and I'm so excited to finally post about them.

The first is a gorgeous center out blanket out of Brooklyntweed Shelter that's featured on the cover of Daniel's new book Knitting from the Center Out!

Daniel is a fabulous and creative designer. I really enjoyed working on the blanket and can't wait to see the finished book! You can pre-order it here.

The other is a gorgeous sweater called Sibella designed by Carrie for Quince & Co.

I believe you all know my love of all things Carrie. This was knit with chicadee in their heathers colorway, kittywake. The lace detail at the top gives this simple top a little character! It's a perfect wardrobe staple.

I'm still making my way cross the country! We currently are in Iowa making our way to Chicago today. I cannot wait to check out some LYS while I am there. Only a few more states to go before MA!

Life

The journey begins.

Mr. H and I have begun our cross country drive to our new home state, Massachusetts. While I am so happy to be headed east it was extremely difficult to say goodbye to San Francisco. I have made so many great friendships in the short time I've lived there that it made saying "see you later" rough! Thank god for the internet or I don't know what I would do.

We saw our last sunset from the Pacific Coast highway earlier today. There is nothing like a sunset on the Pacific. What a magical sight. 

We decided to head a bit south before going west so that we could take this view in one last time. I also had this penchant to go to LA for some weird reason… cough**nonnahs**cough. Right after that we're headed to of my favorites (Hello, Vegas) and a few other cities that are brand new to me. Aside from the city stays we are camping at Grand Canyon, Zion National, and Arches National park. Nature! I am certain my voice is going to be hoarse from singing America the Beautiful everywhere we go.

And of COURSE I brought my knitting!  Would you believe my husband was concerned that I wouldn't have enough things to work on? But I brought an unfinished sweater, a pair of socks and a few other fun projects. I also made sure I brought along my trusty click set should I get some inspiration on the road. You never know what yarn shops could be a gps search away. 😉  

Glad to be back on the blog sharing and not stuck behind boxes! Thanks for your patience. 🙂

Wagons East!
