Retro Bathroom in Progress

Our home in Montreal was built in 1910. Between then and now, various things have been renovated. Badly, for the most part. The kitchen is functional but ugly - the colour palette is pre-cancerous lung. The front entrance was sliced and diced to make way…

Striped Knit Top

I'm so happy with this little knit top I downloaded from BurdaStyle. As usual, I found my attempt at a patch pocket was nearly its undoing, but I managed to rip out the stitches without causing too much damage and proceed without the pocket. Instead…

Aran Placket & Red Rompers

Due in 3 days. 2 projects in progress. This seems totally fine. Like the Autumn Rose, this is a mini version of a sweater I really enjoyed making for myself way back when. The original pattern is adult sized, and calls for Tanis Fiber Arts Aran Weight. So to create a baby version, I used fingering weight and US 2 needles and the stitch numbers for the fourth size.
