Accomplishments of the Week - June 10, 2018

Accomplishment #1

This past week has been a tough one: teething baby, husband with a week-long migraine, preparing to move house in 3 weeks... so my first accomplishment has been to sort our cd collection and actually start packing a few boxes. Still a long way to go, but it feels good to have gotten started.

Stacks of cds and moving boxes

Accomplishment #2

The thing that's kept me going through the stressful week has been my knitting. I'm working on a new sock pattern using Pizzicato in the Palestra colourway to be released next month. It's very simple, so a good project for me right now when I'm only able to knit a few minutes here and there.

My son really loves the colour and has asked for a pair of socks for himself if there's any yarn leftover. I'm not sure I'll have enough for a full pair of socks, but I do have some grey Cobblestone left from another project, so between the two I should be able to make a pair of boy's socks.

P.S.Check out my new J Hendry project bag I picked up at Fibrefest. Kittens and yarn, so cute!

Free Pattern: Attic Windows Recipe
Free Pattern: Attic Windows Recipe

by Debbie Sullivan August 20, 2020 1 Comment

The story of this pattern starts back in 2008 when Elizabeth and I, along with our sister Margaret, decided that we wanted to make a blanket for our parents as a gift for their 25th wedding anniversary. Elizabeth suggested we base our blanket design on the traditional Attic Windows quilting pattern, and she came up with a simple technique to knit the squares.

We wanted to share the basic technique for the Attic Windows squares, because it's so adaptable, and so much fun to play with! So, we decided to create a free "recipe" version of the pattern, that shares the basic technique as well as a step-by-step guide on planning your Attic Windows project.

Recipe: Green Mint Iced Tea
Recipe: Green Mint Iced Tea

by Debbie Sullivan July 23, 2020 3 Comments

It's only the middle of July, and we've already had some significant heat waves here in Montreal this year, so I've been swapping out my normal afternoon pick-me-up of a hot  black tea for iced tea instead. I've recently discovered this simple method for making my iced tea using green tea instead of black and I've been making it so often that I thought I should share the recipe
