We’ve given our Tumblr blog a fresh look, and we’ve spent some time getting to know others on Tumblr lately. On our Tumblr blog, we share some of our projects and reblog posts and pics that catch our eyes and imagination. We hope you’ll take a moment to go take a look at our Tumblr blog. We welcome and heart our followers.
We’ve also been busy working on some side projects, so there hasn’t been a lot of knitting going on lately. Hopefully, that will change soon.
Weekend by Jo Sharp
Yarn: Jo Sharp Classic DK Wool (100% Wool), Color 802 Heron

An easily knit ribbed cushion cover in gray wool. Classic and timeless.
Happy weekend, everyone.
Blue Collar by Teva Durham
by Pam Allen, Editor
Yarn: Berroco Glacé (100% Rayon)
Needles: US 5 & US 9
These Blue Collar capelets by Teva Durham are nice warm-weather accessories. The silky collar is knit with Berroco Glacé, a ribbon yarn made of 100% Rayon, and uses the short-row method to create ruffles.
The capelet stays cool against the skin and is perfect to wear over a sundress or a camisole, like my knitted Arabella by Sarah Dallas.
Call it OCD, but I have a tendency to try to collect everything in two colors if I can. And I especially do when I like something. I knit two Blue Collar capelets in colors Black 2012 and Pencil 2586. So yes, I have to admit that I do like Teva Durham’s knitting designs. Immensely.

Yarn: Jo Sharp Desert Garden Aran (65% Cotton, 35% Microfibre)
Needles: US 6 & 8
Knitting cables without a cable needle is easy and fun. Last year, I made a couple of these Slouchy Copy Cat Hats with mock cables by Terra Jamieson, one with some Rowan Linen Drape yarn left over from knitting Buttercup. I couldn’t find that hat for this post, but ‘ll post a pic if I can find it in my closet. Smh.
We got married recently, and I wanted to create for our wedding a pretty but simple handknit bridal garter that wasn’t too frilly. The picots and eyelets decorating the edges of our HILLSBOROUGH Bridal Wedding Garter provided just enough daintiness. I chose to make my bridal garter completely handmade by making a twisted cord with some DMC Cotton Embroidery Floss, but a ribbon works just as well.
So, the first knitting pattern from Mr. and Mrs. Meyer is now available in our patterns shop. kim=meyer, lol.
