Patterns, Patterns, Patterns!

Hi guys! So a friend of mine requested a custom piece for Christmas, which is very exciting! She, my boyfriend, and I are huge fans of RuPaul's Drag Race, and we get together every Monday to watch together (have you boys been watching Allstars??? The SHADE of it all...). She did not specify what she wanted as a gift, her only stipulation was that I make it for her.

OT But Really Cool!

Hey guys! So I've mentioned before that I'm an actor, and even posted a little while ago about my upcoming show (That's Not Right... A Mistaken Cabaret). I wanted to share this with you, though, cause it's really cool- my amazing boyfriend is a graphic designer (a really awesome one, you should check him out: www.davidayllon.com) and he offered to do this unbelievable poster for me. It's a send-up of the one and only Patti LuPone and her (in)famous Evita arms! Since we're all creatives here, I thought you might get a kick out of it =)

Fall Scarf

It's been a while since I've finished a project! Since I've spent so much time expanding the Cerys Baby Blanket on Ravelry, I haven't finished any other projects (fortunately, the acting projects have kept me busy enough not to have more than one project on the needles at a time). However, I needed a break from those stripes, so I cast on the Ravelry Brisbane Scarf in Thick & Quick Apricot, and it is excellent! A very quick knit that I was able to take with me on vacation, and a scarf that I'm sure will be more than comfortable for the fall.

Hope you guys like it!

Beach Blanket

Hello, all!

In my last post I alluded to a blanket that I was working on- the Cerys Baby Blanket on Ravelry, which I am resizing to be an adult-sized blanket. It is currently being worked on size 6 (not 8, my mistake) needles, and is just about 3.25' in diameter, if my calculations are correct.

Sweater Blues

Hi everyone! I think it's honestly been about a year or so since I posted here, but I've been slowly making my way back into the knitting world since I graduated college and have been pursuing a lot of different jobs and ventures.

My First Pattern!

Hello everyone! I happened to put pictures of my recently finished cable scarf in my last post, and PaulJMC inspired me to share the pattern. It's called "Basic Cable Can Be Fun" and can be found on Ravelry or my blog at:


Let me know what you think, I'd love to hear if there's any confusion regarding the pattern since it was my first go at it. Otherwise, enjoy! I'll put some pictures of the finished scarf here (sorry for the poor quality, I'll take better pictures soon).


OT Update

The mask is finished!!!!

Anyone who'd like to see the final product:

Sorry to everyone else for taking up space on the board!
