up in the air

several months ago, we raised funds for PoPS (we just hit 35,000 subscribers! yay!), so that we could really bring the show to the next level, production wise. it totally worked! but part of the fundraiser was gifts for the various levels of pledges. i was commissioned to knit custom hats at one of those levels. you’ve already seen one of them (grey goose). this is the other (the recipient wanted to be surprised, so i waited to post this until it was confirmed that he had received it).


big, fluffy pom pom. i’m gonna be real with you guys, i had some help with the pom pom. my pom poms aren’t great, unless supervised by someone who does make good pom poms.

what a lovely day!


introducing the 30th item! there was some rummaging at a sale this weekend, and i rectified the grey skirt situation. honestly, the jean skirt that i had picked is a half size too small. you probably won’t see it again… after the 30 for 30, it’s getting donated.


coffee with jillie.


knitting in progress.


the sky was so cool.


19 plaidtastic

it was quite dark when we got pictures… it’s practically sunset by the time i get home these days.

it’s also getting quite cool… and it is making me want to cook! comfort food, specifically. i made meatloaf yesterday (from this recipe), and it was AWESOME! tonight, apple crisp!

the only thing that saved this oufit was my zesty scarf… i think it’s time to pull out my wild card… and pick a 30th item.

i did it!!!


i steeked jake’s sweater!


i’m making a push to finish this before it gets cold.


i used eunny jang‘s tutorial, and a crochet steek. i didn’t do things ideally, so… let’s hope i don’t find out the hard way that i did it allllllll wrong!

My creation
